    Claims Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Baldwin & Lyons (Indianapolis, IN) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online for a claims rep job on their website. I was contacted the same week by an HR rep to schedule an initial 20-30 minute interview the following Tuesday. The HR person confirmed the time via email. Come interview time, they did not initiate the call and I emailed them back requesting a new slot after they had missed it. HR person responded they have decided to go forward with another candidate. I have read a review on glassdoor with a similar experience of not keeping scheduled interviews. That is a pattern, not a one-off accident.

    Very unprofessional to schedule the interview and not proceed with it. Also very unprofessional they would not notify of the cancellation and I had to pursue them for a reschedule at all. It's clear they do not value your time as an applicant. I doubt they will value your time as an employee. This became even more odd when the exact same job posting was re-added onto jobs boards the following week. I would not be frustrated had just a better candidate got the job, but the circumstances are very suspicious.

    Interview

    I applied for four qualified positions over the course of a year. They never email you back for status updates or rejection. They don't have an online portal or contact to check status. I recently applied again and had the same result. I reached out to a hiring manager to see about a position and check status. She forward my email to an HR intern. Really? The HR department is horrible and never keep you informed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Baldwin & Lyons (Carmel, IN) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied Online. Got an email asking what times I am available for a phone interview. Phone interview was straight forward enough asking me why I wanted to work there and why that position. Some behavioral questions. lasted 30 mins.

    Within two days I get an email asking me what times I am available for an on-site interview with the manager of the position. (the person I would be working directly under). Interview lasted an hour and was very informal. I was expecting tough "why should we hire you?" kind of questions but it was mostly him explaining the role and answering any questions I had about the company and position.

    I was told I would hear back from them within 2 weeks.

    Project Management Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Baldwin & Lyons.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview conducted by one of the HR interns. It lasted about 30 min. Only approximately 8-10 questions. There were a few behavioral questions, a question pertaining to my resume, and the rest were logistical questions pertaining to the job like, how many hours are you willing to work? when can you start? The interview was short and sweet. My only complaint is that after about 1.5 weeks i had not heard anything back. I believe that once you start a screening process with a candidate it is professional courtesy to let that individual know whether or not they are moving along with the hiring process.

    Reinsurance Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Baldwin & Lyons in May 2016.

    Interview

    I received an email to set up a phone screening pretty quickly after I applied online. The phone screening went well, but instead of emailing me to set up an interview, the recruiter called me and asked if I could interview one day later. Because it was on the phone I felt pressured to say yes. So I had to take a short notice day off work for the interview. The hiring manager didn't seem interested in getting to know me at all, just kept asking condescending questions about my work experience, for an entry level job that didn't really require much specific experience. And worst of all she didn't even acknowledge the fact that I took a day off of work with no notice to drive 2 hours both ways for this interview. Even though the interview was rushed, I didn't hear back for more than a month. I emailed the recruiter every week for four weeks asking about the status of the position and never heard a word back. Until about a month later when she said that the position was put on hold and they wanted me to come in for another interview. At that point I was very upset that they wouldn't even email me back to let me know anything, and my suspicion was that they were just lying to me because the first choice fell through somehow. Also, I wasn't willing to take another day off of work on short notice for a company that had been so unprofessional up to that point. So I emailed them and explained that I didn't really feel like I should have to come in for another interview, I asked them to clarify what exactly the interview was for, whether it was for negotiating or to ask more of the same questions I was asked by the four others I interviewed with. They again showed zero professionalism by not even emailing me back after that. I'm so glad that I wasn't even tempted by a job offer because this company seems like a horrible place to work, and I just got a job at a million times better place.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Baldwin & Lyons in February 2016.

    Interview

    I met an individual at a career fair, and then received a call about the position. I went through a phone interview, followed up with the interviewer who was very nice, and then never heard back. Really, all I wanted to know was whether or not I was still a candidate. I just wish I would have been given that since I was very excited about the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Baldwin & Lyons (Cumberland, MD) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview then quickly was scheduled for an onsite interview. The whole process has went by very fast so far. The HR recruiter was very nice and professional. I'm looking forward to the onsite interview. I was sent an email to have papers filled out for the interview including a lot of personal information that, in my experience, usually isn't filled out until after an offer and acceptance. Hopefully this is a good sign!
