    I have been working at Burns & Wilcox full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My colleagues are nice. The office is comfortable with a pleasant atmosphere. The owner is personable (he delivered the Christmas gifts last year). There are perks like free yoga, health fair, good benefits, accessible HQ location with moderate traffic, and 7.5 hour days. Management personnel are friendly, helpful, and flexible.

    Cons

    Work can be boring, but that's better than stressful

    Assistant Underwriter Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Tampa, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Burns & Wilcox in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied to the organization online and received an email about two weeks later, asking for an interview. When I went to the interview, I met with 4 different experienced underwriters and management personnel. I was highly impressed with the level of knowledge and experience of all of the interviewers. The interviews went very smoothly, no promises were made, but they took the time to explain the inter-workings of the company and what the job would entail, along with how the path to promotion and training would be laid out. It was an altogether pleasant experience and seems like a strong employee-oriented organization.

    Interview Questions
    • The interviews were more akin to information sessions, where I was able to ask questions and gain an understanding about expectations and how the business operated.   Answer Question
