    ITLDP Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Travelers Companies in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Had a 1st round interview which was mainly behavioral questions. After passing 1st round interview, was told to prepare a 10 minute presentation to present at the 2nd round interview about tech in the business world. 2nd round interview at their Hartford location included 5 interviews(1 was technical). The interviews were again largely behavioral questions, a lot of "tell me about a time..." style questions. Would recommend having at least ten STAR stories prepared. Technical interview was largely about how you would approach client issues in app development, and other case study questions. Everyone was very friendly and location was gorgeous. Get there early however, easy to miss the parking entrance for interviewees.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Travelers Companies in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Very long process. First if your application online is approved, you will have a 20-30 minute phone interview, very basic and simple. If approved, 2 weeks later you come in for a 6 part, 3 1/2 hr general knowledge test involving simple typing, math, and English comprehension excercises. You must pass all parts of the test, and if you do, 2 weeks later you will have an interview lasting 45 minutes to an hour, this is the final step of the process

    Call Center Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Travelers Companies in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an online application for the position. I was called the next day and had a phine interview with a gentleman. He asked me to take a call center test online and depending on my scores, I would move in to a face to face interview. Two days later, I received a phone call that I passed my online testing. I went for an in-person interview that was considerably shorter than what I was told to expect (1-2 hours). I never received a return call, but I figured that I did not get the job when the interview did not last longer than 30 minutes.

    Interview Details

    I applied in November, was contacted in December by HR. I did a phone screening and then scheduled an on site interview. I interviewed with the head of Underwriting separately. Then the hiring manager, an HR rep and the hiring managers boss. Everyone was very friendly and while it was a behavioral question interview, it was very conversational and easy going.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Travelers Companies.

    Interview Details

    Apply online, then phone interview and if you pass that an assessment at their facility. Then meet with 2 unit mangers, their mangers and the VP with HR director. The whole process is ridiculously long. They are very friendly to different ethnicities. The pride themselves on be equal opportunity employer but they don't uphold this policy! My interview was a joke and waste of time. If you are looking to work for an insurance that's for the employees I would try and more popular company....get my FLO!
