    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Windsor, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Hartford in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and had an employee referral. Received an email a few days later to set up a phone interview which was scheduled for two days after that. The phone interview was a review of the job and my qualifications, pretty easy. At the end of that conversation I was scheduled for an in person interview the following week. Went to the office the following Monday and met with a manager. The interview was a lot of behavioral questions... make sure you have some examples from previous work experience/schooling. The in person interview took an hour. Dress professionally and be ready to give examples and you should be fine. Everybody I spoke with was very nice and helped me understand the requirements of the position. I received a job offer the following day.

    Excellent conversation with AVP for the department. Very standard behavioral interview. Was an exploratory interview to determine if I was a fit for the organization. AVP was very friendly and sold me on the organization. Additionally, I was referred to several employees to discuss the type of work further as we wait for positions to become available.

    Program Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at The Hartford.

    Interview Details

    This was an internal hire. I applied for the position on our internal platform and immediately after posting I received a generic HR message stating that my candidacy was being considered by the hiring staff. Approximately 1 week after I completed my submission I received an email invitation to speak with an HR specialist. The HR specialist was nice and prompt in his message to me. He properly coordinated a phone interview with me for the following week. The phone interview lasted approximately 30 minutes, for which the HR specialist was on time and professional. The questions were pretty easy, straight forward, behavioral interview questions. I was asked 5-6 questions before being advised of next steps and being asked if I had any questions. I ended up interviewing with the hiring manager and another individual from that department. That particular interview lasted approximately 2 hours. There wasn't really anything unexpected from a question perspective. Interview was more of a conversation which was great. The hiring manager and this other individual made me feel at ease. It was probably one of the better interviewing experiences for me. After that interview I did have a second interview with a senior leader of the company. This interview lasted approximately 1 hour and was more difficult than the previous interviews. Overall it was a good experience.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at The Hartford.

    Interview Details

    Very good interview process. After applying online and taking the skills test, I was contacted about 5 days later via phone by recruiter and had initial interview. Had second interview in person with potential manager and another remote manager. Questions where typical to the position I was applying for. Notified 1 week later that I got the position. I tried to negotiate salary but they were firm. Upon acceptance, they do a through criminal and employment verification check.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were pretty typical. Pertaining to customer service, they want to here real life experiences rather than vague responses.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I tried to negotiate for a 10% increase. The HR recruiter asked my supervisor but they wouldn't budge. They said company does annual reviews and have bonuses. Good thing is that I can apply for other positions after 12 months of service in current one.
