    I applied online and received an email the next day saying they wanted to schedule me for an interview over the phone. We set up that interview and they called me just to tell me about the position and to tell me that I had been pushed through to the next round. then I was given a phone interview with two people. Questions were kind of difficult, but nothing that you couldnt prepare for. I havent heard back yet about the job

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Travelers Companies in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initially contacted for phone interview. Followed by additional phone interview by Senior Recruiting representative. Two at location interviews within 2 weeks time -- interviewed by hiring manager and 4 additional members of management team, plus a lunch with potential team members. After the final interview, it was only a few days before I was contacted by HR about their decision. Process was pretty in-depth, but the time frame was quite fast. Only 3 weeks from initial contact to offer made.

    Underwriter Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Travelers Companies in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    I gave a resume at a career fair, and was followed up with by email. I think I got the email more than a month after the career fair, and I was asked if there was a time I could set up a phone interview. I agreed and received a call exactly at that time. This was not a position I was very interested in. The interviewer asked many standard questions, a couple asking for specific examples. At the end of the interview I asked a couple questions, and then I asked if their was any room for horizontal movement from this position within Travelers, because I was not particularly interested in underwriting (I didn't say that though). The interviewer responded that they were really looking for people who want to do underwriting because of the long training process. I thanked her for her time and we ended the call. I received an email a week or so later that they were moving forward with other candidates. (Not surprisingly)

    Interview Details

    I had an initial HR phone screen, then a Phone Interview with the hiring manager. Never heard a word after that, but that seems to be how Travelers does things if they don't go to the next phase.
