- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Acadia Insurance (Bedford, NH) in May 2015.
It was very lengthy and drawn out. I applied through my school's career development website. I was called a couple weeks later by HR for a phone interview. The phone interview itself took 30-45 minutes. I was then sent a couple tests I needed to take. Once HR had the results I was then told I would get a call a couple days later for an in person interview. The following week I got an email asking to come in a couple days later. When I arrived, I was asked to take a timed test evaluating my math/problem solving/analytical skills. I then met with the AVP and the manager of the rating department. They were friendly however they were very scripted in their answers. If I asked a question, it was almost verbatim what the HR person had told me. When I asked the manager her personal opinion of why she loved to work there- she verbatim quoted what was on the website. They very much disliked that I was looking for a company with growth opportunities and it was clear because they made many snide remarks in relation to that. Highly doubt I would've enjoyed working there.
