    I have been working at Westfield Insurance full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I love the FlexTime option. As long as you work your 40 hours (if you are an hourly employee) they are flexible for dealing with things like doctors appointments, family emergencies, etc. When they say they promote a work-life balance they really mean it. Employees are given a lot of opportunity for training and certifications, with the leaders budgeting a certain amount for. I can only speak to the salary in IT, but I feel it is extremely fair and they do market re-evaluations to make sure it stays competitive.

    Cons

    Some of the departments are really mis-managed and it's apparent to those of us outside the departments. I'm not sure why leadership seems to be blind to the issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It should be a red flag when multiple people in one department are quitting in rapid succession.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Westfield Insurance.

    Interview Details

    The first step was a typical phone interview. Afterwards, you were invited for an on site interview. Accommodations were provided at their on site hotel. On site interview consisted of a tour, lunch and panel interview. Interview was panel style that consisted of 2-4 employees at a time. The on site interview process was quite lengthy and took the better part of a work day.

    Interview Questions
    • Be prepared for a group interview containing several situational questions. I would recommend having a good background story in place as most questions were designed to see how you would fit in with the company. Questions were not as job specific oriented as I had expected, mostly personality based questions.   Answer Question
