    Senior Business Systems Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Travelers Companies in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Referred internally. Interviewed w/ a total of 7 people - two phone w/ HR. Both seemed to go very well. Invited in for interview w/ manager + 2 team members, HR said initial feedback was favorable. Asked to come back two weeks later for 2nd round. Interviewed w/ 2 VP's. 6 weeks later and still no answer up or down despite calls to internal HR recruiter. Unbelievable lack of professionalism. Up or down folkes. "No answer" indicates a culture of arrogance and lack of respect for applicants.

    Human Resources Assistant II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Travelers Companies in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went through a staffing agency and was called for an in-person interview. I met with a supervisor and then the manager of the team separately. Both women were extremely friendly and did a great job of explaining the position (which turned out to be completely different than the description given to me by the staffing agency). There was quite a bit of overlap in their questions but they were fairly easy. The interview process didn't feel stressful; although they were writing down much of what I said, the two interviewers were quick to smile and made me feel comfortable.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a co-worker that you didn't like or had trouble working with.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The commute to downtown St. Paul would have been very long from my house. It was also a contract position and I wanted something more stable.

    Worker's Compensation Claim Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Travelers Companies in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I received an email for an interview within a week of applying. I was brought into an empty office and asked a series of standard questions about working in a fast-paced environment (highly emphasized), handling disappointed customers (since you will be denying some claims), and other generic questions (greatest weakness, etc.). The interview was fantastic, but it took them a few weeks to get back to me with their offer. By the time I was offered the position, I had already reached a deadline to accept a promotion within my current company.

    Interview Questions
    • Very typical questions. Most difficult was probably "Give an example of a time you were disciplined at work" which I interpreted as "greatest weakness"   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I was offered a promotion at my current job before I heard back from Traveler's.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Travelers Companies in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went to a job fair and contacted the recruiter immediately after. I got an interview with the recruiters that I met with. This ended up being a really positive interview experience because I already had some rapport with the interviewers. They said that the next step was that I would interview with their claims supervisor and then his boss.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Travelers Companies in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Received email and voicemail from HR representative stating they had reviewed my resume and wanted to set up a time to do a telephone interview. Sent an email response later the same day email was received and called and left same information next day on voicemail (too late to leave it same day). Did not receive call to set up the appointment, so I called and left another message 2 days later saying I was still interested and available for the phone interview. Never received response. Why did they bother calling me then?
