Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Travelers Companies in October 2014.

Interview Details

Interviewer was professional and courteous. I heard from others that they typically ask about 25 questions from a list of questions, and they range from "What is a strength you have..." to "Give an example of a time where you were accurately able to predict future difficulties with a project." The interview was only for about 30 minutes, but it wasn't a threatening environment.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Travelers Companies.

    Interview Details

    I first had a phone interview where they just asked basic personality questions and to find out your interest in the position. They got back to me 3 weeks later for another in-person interview. I interviewed with four different people. I never heard back from them after that. Overall the people at the company where nice but they took a long time to get back to you after the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Travelers Companies in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online and a few weeks later received an email asking for a phone interview. I scheduled the phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes with mostly general questions about my resume and experience in the industry. Nothing hard and nothing I couldn't answer off the top of my head. A few weeks later I got a call asking for an in person interview but turned it down because I had already found a job at that point.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Travelers Companies in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Both of the hiring managers I interviewed with were very nice. The interview questions were very typically behavioral questions for the most part. Come prepared with some information about the company and the business segment you are interviewing for, it will impress your interviewer(s).

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Travelers Companies in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer asked pretty standard questions. I was not too excited about the job but gave it a good effort. The recruiter never responded to me or a couple of my friends that also interviewed. She just left us hanging.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Travelers Companies in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, had a 30 minute phone screen with HR and was invited for an in-person interview.

    Was interviewed by 2 people. Hiring manager and unit manager. About a 2 hour interview. They made it sound like I was going to be brought back in for a 2nd and 3rd at the same time (was out of town and relocating). I NEVER heard back from them. No phone call, email, or letter saying I was no longer considered. Very frustrating.
