    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CNA (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Phone processed was quick and thorough. Very professional from hr person in Chicago. Passed phone interview, and HR person referred me to the underwriting director, said I will hear from him in a few days. I never did. After multiple phone calls, and emails, no follow up from HR person.Follow up is terrible. It just so happened, this same HR person had referred me back in October of 2014 for a 2nd interview and I never heard back. Glad I have a job and was not waiting on this one possibility. I was trying to relocated to FLORIDA.

    Policy Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maitland, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CNA (Maitland, FL) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online recv'd email for phone interview, then f2f with 2 managers. The f2f interview lasted only 20 minutes where managers seemed sort of interested. I was told that I would recv feedback from recruiter and also they were not sure of how soon they would decide. A month later never heard back and contacted hr recruiter to ask status of interview and position. HR is very unprofessional because to date after 2 months never recv'd a response for position. Mind you the same HR whom I contacted requesting if it was ok to apply for more than one positions and the same person responded immediately but never responded on status of position to date. I am sure by now it is clear I did not get the job but as a large company have some professionalism and contact applicants who took the time to ...prepare mentally, went and have an interview out of their day. Regardless whether it be we are the ones in need.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CNA in October 2015.

    Interview

    6 questions. Not very useful. Basically wanted me to know how difficult the job was by answering questions that I never asked. Two people interviewed me and they were courteous but they were not realistic as to what my resume showed in comparison to what the job required.

    Law Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at CNA in April 2013.

    Interview

    East coast office was looking for a law clerk. Interviewed: loved the office, environment, employees, management. Everything was set: just needed to get the paperwork in order. And, of course, Corporate got involved. It went down hill from there. The third party background check company never stopped asking, verifying, asking again... nearly ten years back. Then CNA's Corporate HR management asked me for W-2s to verify my salary from 8 years before. Then they called the previous companies to verify salary information. After more than a month of this, I received an email from the Corporate Director of Employee Relations, Erin Hitchcock, an attorney no less, saying they were no longer pursuing my candidacy. Really? Maybe someone should have told the office who intended to hire me. Or the third party screening company who continued to verify my information. And, a month of intensive time spent by corporate and a third party screening company invested on a law clerk position?
    The reason for not pursiung my candidacy was illegal and discriminatory. With ethically compromised corporate management, I would not want to be associated with CNA. I feel sorry for those who work there and are at the mercy of inept CNA leadership.

    • Please explain the discrepancy between your stated 2008 salary (in 2013) and that of your W-2 reported earnings?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    I was offered the job by the east coast office. Corporate opted to not pursue my candidacy. The salary was VERY LOW, but I liked the people in the office and wanted experience. Once I had dealings with corporate, I knew I would not have been able to work in such an ethically-challenged organization.
