I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Westfield Insurance.
Interview Details – I was recruited to interview for this position. The hiring manager was very friendly and made me feel at ease. They flew me to Westfield for the interview. I initially met with the person I was going to report to. Then I met with executive management for lunch. They put me to ease and the questions were "under the radar" and instead of direct.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Westfield Insurance.
Interview Details – The online application is fairly long and requires some thought. The next phase was an initial phone interview, which was relatively standard. The on-site interview was a total of 3 hours with 2 of those hours being small group interviewing (2 different groups for an hour each) and then an hour for a lunch interview. Many of the questions involve competencies, etc. They are somewhat slow in responding regarding whether or not you have been chosen as the best candidate (sometimes over 2 months).
Interview Question – The hardest question was "What does and underwriter do?". Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Westfield Insurance in March 2013.
Interview Details – Initial phone interview - the in person second round interview consists of a two hour interview and then an hour lunch with current employees. Lots and lots of "tell me about a time…" and situational questions that are often posed in a very awkward manor. HR reps are friendly and the people there make sure you are comfortable at all times.
Interview Question – Not one specific question, but there were many difficult situational questions. They start out by saying a word such as "responsible" or "driven" and then ask a question that goes along the lines of proving you are or are not this word. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Westfield Insurance in November 2011.
Interview Details – You apply online through their website. Then you get a response from HR with a time to phone interview with two application developers. After that you find out if you are in or not.
Negotiation Details – I'm not sure if I were able to negotiate, but I'm sure you are able to negotiate.
The process took a day - interviewed at Westfield Insurance in August 2011.
Interview Details –
Detailed. Panel interview scheduled efficiently, but questions not coordinated. Left impression that company was only concerned with meeting their needs versus finding the best mutual working relationship. If you really want the job, do not ask questions that are of importance to you (unfortunate, since this should be a collaborative and open discussion). Discussions / interviews need to be more evenly balanced if they desire to attract qualified resources that will support long-term strategic growth, whatever that may be (representatives didn't seem to be able to or want to answer strategic questions during the interview process).
There is a great opportunity for an individual with the appropriate approach and expertise in the industry to take this company to a higher level.
