    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Galveston, TX

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at American National Insurance (Galveston, TX) in December 2016.

    Interview

    First the environment at the office in Galveston is both depressing and old fashioned. I felt as if I had been taken back in time to the 70s.

    The interviewers lacked any personality. They just asked question after question and it felt as though they were going through the motions. The questions were prepared and they just selected from a list. They were also not prepared. It was obvious none of the interviewers had reviewed my resume before the interview.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at American National Insurance (League City, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    HR will coordinate with you through out the interview process, but they don't really inform the status. The hiring manager is very subjective and already have a candidate in his mind.

Months later the hiring manager call and said the position is filled, but he encourage to continue to apply for other open position.
