    Underwriter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westbrook, ME
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westbrook, ME
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Acadia Insurance.

    Interview Details

    I went through a recruiter, which would be step 1. Step 2 was a phone interview with the branch RVP. Step 3 was an in person interview with the RVP and HR rep. This included a Wonderlic cognitive exam. It wasn't difficult, just one extra process to do. Next step was multiple interviews in Maine with UW department heads and HR. They flew me out that morning, conducted the interviews and then I flew home that evening. It was an exhausting process, but the people were great. Lastly, it took a month to hear back from them. Caution in hiring is definitely understandable. I just wonder how many good candidates they lose in this process.

Since then Acadia Insurance has established offices more than 600 cities in the Northeast. Acadia specializes in commercial insurance lines for small-to-medium businesses in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont.
