    Pros

    Definitely not your grandfather's insurance company. This organization has plenty of opportunity, excellent people and vision. If you want to make a difference - get on board!

    Cons

    Be ready to think, innovate and put it into overdrive. Not a place for the rest and vest crowd.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider company-wide career postings for those on the move or looking to move.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at W. R. Berkley.

    Interview Details

    Interview was a joke and a waster of my time. Hiring manager was late showing up with no apology, wearing jeans and continually checked his watch during the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • How about most stupid question. I was asked how I would approach painting a room. I told the guy, I wouldn't. I would hire a painter that actually knew what they were doing. Compare bids and reviews and make a decision.   Answer Question
    Declined Offer
