    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at W. R. Berkley (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First there was a phone interview, then an office interview with 2 people at the same time followed. I was told I'd be contacted in a week...it's been almost a month and I still haven't heard anything. All my e-mails and calls have also not been returned. At least have the common decency to let me know what's going on if you're going to waste my time like that.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult. For the most part they wanted to know how much I knew about the position, what kind of environment I was comfortable working in, and some of the other basic questions. Very easy interview   Answer Question
