    Director, Project Management Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CNA (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The interview was very easy. The process was courteous and polite. There were not aggressive questions. Just be bold and try to gauge the atmosphere in the room. The company is generally looking to fill particular position and it is not very clear from the description or the title of the position what the actual job in the position is. Hence you have to really push to determine the exact expectations of the position. I enjoyed the interview process.

    Underwriter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at CNA (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Spoke with a recruiter who reached out on LinkedIn, and all seemed well. On the phone call, hey were interested in my background and experience, which went very well. The conversation then turned to compensation. As I answered the question "what are you making now?" I gave a range that I would find appropriate to make me move companies. The recruiter rudely responded with "that's at the top of our range for this position, are you sure that's what you're making?" After being asked that, I decided I wasn't interested in coming to a company more focused about pinching salary pennies rather than paying competitive wages for talent. I declined to schedule an interview. Shame, as I work in a niche that's hard to find experienced people in and CNA is such a great competitor that I thought the opportunity would have been good for both of us. C'est la vie!

    Financial Analysis Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CNA (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Process was a little unique because they asked me to interview for two positions at the same time. Started with two over the phone interviews with HR. The first was with a lady that wrote down every single thing I said word for word. It was grueling. The second was a higher up recruiter a few days later. She was very pleasant to talk to and I worked with her going forward. This was followed up by two in office interviews. First was a 1 hour panel interview with the first hiring manager and 2 directors, followed up with a 1:1 with the second hiring manger. Second in office consisted of three 1:1 interviews with the VPs a week later.

    Initial communication with HR was great. I got consistent updates on the process and where I stand. After the interview process was over I was told I would know within a few days. After a week I still didn't have an answer. HR communication got progressively worse but I was not told I'm out of the running. Two weeks in HR still told me they were making a decision so I just took another offer I had.
