Director - Technology Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Hartford, CT

I applied online and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed 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 Question – 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

Reason 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.

Account Executive Interview

Account Executive

I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Travelers Companies in November 2013.

Interview Details – The process has been very smooth and the corporate recruiter makes an effort to keep you up to dfate on the progress. The first round is a phone call with the recruiter. Depending on how that goes, there is etiher a another round of phone interviews with the hiring tema or they ask you go on an on-site internview if they are very interested. After the round robin interview with 5 managers, there was a third round with a high level executive who really just wants to get to know you. The technical aspect is done with the hiring manager and other managers.

Interview Question – Many technical questions during the second round of interviews. Mostly how would you handle an account questions.   Answer Question
