    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Travelers Companies.

    Interview

    First there is a phone screening. Then next you are called in for an in person screening. (Waste of time because you are asked the same questions during your phone screening) Lastly, you are called in for an interview for 4 hours! So stupid. You complete 6 rounds of interviews for 30 minutes with 2 different managers during each setting. They are grilling you for questions. If you give an answer they don't like the lame managers will frown and give you faces. One manager said, yeah yeah you already said that. How rude! Well I will say it again. There are no breaks during the interviews just one bottle of water. This company is ridiculous all the managers are disrespectful and they had co-workers interviewing during the process. I'm thinking are you qualified to interview?? They don't care if you have a degree and they frown upon higher education. At all cost a waste of time trust me!

Was scheduled for another interview with hiring managers 2 weeks later. Made it through all 3 hiring mangers. Was contacted the next day to have a peer interview over the phone and speak with the HR director. I was offered the job the following day contingent upon passing a drug screening and background check. Everyone was very nice and responded to my calls and emails during the process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Travelers Companies.

    Interview

    Long interview process (2+ months), but now I understand why it's necessary. The job isn't easy, and they want to make sure they're selecting the right people. You need to be a master at time management, multi-tasking and customer service in order to get through the day without pulling your hair out. Once you get through the first few months, you start to "get it" and there is a ton of freedom and individual responsibility (at least in our office) to learn and grow at your own pace. NO MICROMANAGEMENT! Coming to Travelers was the best career move I've ever made. They are a class act, promote and pay generously and value the thoughts and opinions of their employees. I'm in for the long haul.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard behavioral questions. Asked if I knew about certain insurance terms. Nothing out of the ordinary. I had a total of three interviews and a job shadow.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Travelers Companies.

    Interview

    After submitting my application for the position I was sent a generic automated email from Travelers. The email simply stated they received my application and would contact me if my credentials met the job criteria. Within a week of my application a few Travelers employees looked at my LinkedIn profile and I received a call from the hiring manager at Travelers to set up a phone interview. The hiring/interview process occurred over the span of three separate interviews.

    The first interview consisted of a half hour to forty five minute conversation with the Director of National Accounts for the Risk Control business segment. I was asked general questions regarding my resume, past work experience, education, and why I was interested in Travelers. Following this phone interview I then coordinated an in-person interview with the Director of Risk Control.

    My second interview with the Director of Risk Control was slightly more technical than the first phone interview. During this interview I was asked more specific questions regarding my past work experience and how I would be ably to apply it to the role with Travelers. Other question were asked like, "Why do you want to leave your current employer?" and "How can you benefit Travelers?". Overall, the interview lasted around forty five minutes to an hour and was not too difficult.

    My third and last interview concluded with the VP of the North Central Region for Risk Control. Our conversation lasted around a half hour and no new questions were asked during this time. The whole "interview" seemed more or less like the interviewer was trying to get a feel for me as a person, not necessarily looking for any more qualifications.

    Once I finished the interview process I was asked to fill out an online form consenting to a background check.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Got two phone calls from HR. One to see if I was still interested in the position, the other to schedule the phone interview. Phone interview was an hour long. Hardly asked me any behavioral questions. Asked where do you see yourself in 3 years? It was mostly technical questions (asked a lot of statistical questions) and a ton of auto insurance questions.
