    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CNA in February 2016.

    Interview

    I found the job posting on linkedIn and applied online. About a week later I got an email from a recruiter in Chicago for a brief phone interview and a copy of my transcript. Once the phone interview began the recruiter seemed to be very relaxed and all over the place, giving me the feeling that it would be a very basic and casual interview to learn more about the position. She began to ask me about the college courses I had taken and my GPA. From there she asked what I knew about underwriting and CNA and what I could bring to the company. We ended with personality type questions and was told that if they decided to move forward I would receive an email for an in-house interview within the next two weeks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CNA.

    Interview

    I first received a phone interview which went into detail about the position and they asked a few behavioral questions. I was then asked to do an in person interview the following week. The in person was a meeting with two people, an HR specialist and the branch director. The HR specialist was very nice and easy to talk to. I had a great conversation with her. My problem was with the branch director from the moment I sat down for the interview I knew he didn't want to be there. He only asked me one question about how much I knew about surety bonds and explained to me why he's not happy with his job. That was a bit of downer and nobody wants that in their interview. I got a call a week later saying I didn't get the job, but was a very competitive candidate. At least they let you down easy.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CNA (Anaheim, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a phone call a couple weeks later. The phone interview took about 30 minutes. The person who interviewed me was of the opposite sex, which was a plus. Overall, the phone screen was some what of a challenge but if you have researched basic behavioral quesitons, you should be fine.
