    Risk Engineer Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Zurich North America.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a call from a recruiter about 2 weeks later. The interview with the recruiter was just a phone screen and then she passed my application/information to a hiring manager. She asked me questions about my education, why I was interested in this position, and which one of my accomplishments I was most proud of.

    I had a phone interview with the hiring manager about a month later and that was a breeze! It was about a 30 minute phone call and it really felt more like a conversation than an interview. He asked me what my hobbies were, we talked about my interests in this field, favorite courses in college, he talked to me about nanotechnology which was pretty interesting. At the end of the conversation he asked if we could sit down face to face. About a week and a half later I got an email from the recruiter confirming the third interview (scheduled exactly two weeks after my second interview).

    My third interview was with the same hiring manager and it wasn't really an interview, again it was more of a conversation and he answered questions I had came with about the position. He was very friendly and extremely helpful. He answered all of my questions thoroughly.

    My third interview was on a Friday and I received my offer the following tuesday.

After a month, I followed up with the recruiter and was told they were still interviewing, but to expect an answer soon. It was months ago and I never heard anything back.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Zurich North America in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    It was a phone screening interview. Just the first step to the interview process. They asked situational questions as well as why you are fit for the specific position. Also, why Zurich. It was a quick interview and very lax. It went by very quick, almost as if I didn't have a chance before the phone call even started.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Zurich North America.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was rigorous, however I have a close connection in the company that has worked with Zurich for the last 20 years, which certainly helped tremendously. Multiple phone interviews, one in person interview. I was interviewed by 2 people at once, and they mainly asked about my educational background, job experience, and analytical thinking examples. Fairly straightforward.

    I applied online – interviewed at Zurich North America.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Got a call in 2 days. I am not sure if the recruiter was having a bad day, she seemed annoyed with everything I said. The interview was meant to be behavioral plus resume review but often the recruiter got diverted towards technical and when I began explaining she was unhappy that I was being too technical.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is extremely slow. The HR emailed me few times, but it took a long time for him to reply. I applied online and HR email you with an questionnaire including some questions related to the position. The whole process is extremely slow. The HR seems super busy. Every time I tried to call him, he was out of office and no one picked up phone. He never called back either
