    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Crum & Forster (Morristown, NJ).

    Interview

    I had a friend pass my resume along. I heard from the company about a week later to set up the interview and asked me a couple of questions about my experience. A couple days later I had the first interview. I met with two people in the department. Interview was pretty normal and was a great experience. An hour after I left, they called for a second interview. I had my second interview a couple of days after that, and met with two others in the department including the head. I got a call that evening with the offer, and accepted the following day

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Crum & Forster (Southfield, MI) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Quick and informal. I think they already kind of decide who they want to hire before the interview based on experience. I'm sure mine was awkward, but I got called a day later anyways.

    Operations Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Crum & Forster (Hartford, CT) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Received a phone call to schedule an in person interview then a second interview is required with the manager/Boss of that office. After the in person interview I was informed that Boss was out of town and he returned the following week for second interviews. When I followed up I was told it would be another week. It was two weeks from my initial interview and another phone call that I was asked for a second interview. Not even 24 hours after being asked to schedule a second I was called and told someone else was chosen. The process was unorganized and extremely unprofessional. This is a branch of the company so I hope the other offices do not lead on their other candidates to only abruptly tell them someone else was chosen.
