    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Travelers Companies.

    Interview Details

    I have already knew one of the employers, who is working at the reserve analysis department of the company. I told him that I am interested in an intern position, and asked him if there are any opportunities. He told his managers, and since they are very overloaded, asked me to attend an interview. The whole interview took at least 5 hours, I have spoken with 5 different person. Each of them first looked on my resume, and asked me to tell them about myself. After a couple of minutes they started to aks questions about my personality, how I would solve different problems, situations, you know, the usual behavioral interview questions. They also wanted to think about some general problems related to insurance. After 50 minutes, I had the opportunity to ask questions from them, and after one hour passed, we said goodby.
    Every person was very kind and friendly, even the manager who leads the team I am trying to get into.

    Director - Technology Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Travelers Companies in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Two phone interviews and then a face to face interview in Hartford with a VP and several of their staff. Received a call the next month that they wanted to make me an offer. I countered the next day for a few thousand more but there was no negotiation. The offer was only 10% more than I was making. The HR guy was pressuring me telling me they had to know immediately as they had someone else in mind. I would be relocating but they only give three days from the original offer to decide because you have to take a drug test or they rescind the offer. After giving it some thought the position seemed a little like drudgery and pay wise the difference was small so I declined.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really challenging. They asked a lot about what I was currently doing. Seemed like they were probing me to find out how to fix a few of their current problems.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Received a call the next month that they wanted to make me an offer. I countered the next day for a few thousand more but there was no negotiation. The offer was only 10% more than I was making. I knew someone that used to work there and he said make sure you get what you can initially because there will be little in terms of increases going forward. I would be relocating but they only give three days from the original offer to decide because you have to take a drug test or they rescind the offer. Thought this was a tight timeline considering the seniority of the position and the relocation. After giving it some thought the position seemed a little like drudgery and pay wise the difference was small so I declined.

    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Travelers Companies in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    3 series of phone interviews that were casual and laid back in nature. Very common interview questions behavioral in nature such as, tell me about a time you disagreed with a boss, tell me what you know about our company.. Do you know anything specific about any changes our company has gone through in past years?

    Interview Questions
    • I was definitely drilled on what I knew about the company. Travelers is a very famous company because of the logo but they have gone through several changes throughout the years and sold off pieces of their insurance business to other big insurance players like Aetna. This information is good to know as well as the fact that Travelers is primarily now a P&C insurance company.   View Answer
