    Interview

    Phone interview after assessment then an in branch face to face interview with a manager meet and greet other employees and review the location discuss day to day operations and responsibilities. The phone interview was a drawn out explanation of my resume. The face to face was question and answer at the location I would be working at it took a while to confirm an offer. And even longer to get things squared away overall probably one of the least efficient job processes I've been involved in

    Underwriter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Direct General (Nashville, TN) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process is very formal and antiquated. They bring a booklet of "standard" interview questions like "What wild animal are you most like". The kinds of interview questions that you find when you do a google search for oddball interview questions. When we sat down they told me they would be asking me 50 questions and I believe they asked me 50 questions. Lots of "Tell me about a time when you..." questions that are in no way related to the role or the even the department.
