    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Markel (Red Bank, NJ) in August 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online through the "Careers" section of www.markelcorp.com. I was actually surprised to get an email from their HR department in about an hour after I applied. After a few emails back and forth with a HR generalist, I was invited in for an interview the very next day. I interviewd first with the HR generalist before moving on to talk to two professional liability underwriting managers. I was in the office for about an hour and 45 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult or unexpected questions. Everything was pretty straight forward. I actually learned just as much about Markel Corp. as they did about me and my experience.   Answer Question
