    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Travelers Companies (Windsor, CT) in August 2015.

    Interview

    After I applied online, I received an email about a week later from one of the recruiters asking to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview lasted a little more than an hour. The recruiter was very pleasant and asked questions about my resume and what I liked and did not like from each one of my jobs. It was a little difficult but the recruiter made me feel at ease. After that I received a phone call that I passed the phone interview and I needed to come in to take a 3-hour assessment which tested my math, excel, comprehension, writing, excel, reading skills. It was not as hard as I thought it would be. A couple of days later, I received a phone call to schedule a in-person interview that lasted about 3 hours. It was with a supervisor, a claims representative who you shadowed for about 30 minutes and able to ask all the questions you would like, and then the department manager. I felt very comfortable talking to the supervisor and claims representative. The questions were very behavioral based and I had to give a lot of examples. The interview with the department manager was more intimidating and I had to answer questions about why I wanted to work for Travelers and what kind of employee I would be. I was told at the interview that I would hear back from them in two weeks whether or not I got the job.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hartford, CT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Travelers Companies (Hartford, CT).

    Interview

    Probably one of the worst interview experiences ever. They called me in and then put me in an office for 6 hours with people rotating in and out. Most of the people seemed way to busy then to spend an hour with me and seemed distracted and many were not even involved with the role. The hiring manager couldn't even be bothered to speak to me for more then 7 minutes. Most of the interviews were conversational and unstructured, but basically it seemed like one they had a hard time articulating this role and therefore were not really sure why I was there. Here's a hint, have your hiring managers take 15 minutes and do a phone screen before bringing people in if you don't think they are qualified. It was a waste of my time.
