    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Harvard Risk Management (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was sent an email from a recruiter after posting my resume on Indeed. I was asked to watch a long and incredibly boring flash video of a PowerPoint presentation about Harvard Risk Management, and then at the end filled out a form to schedule an "interview."

    The "interview" was a 45 minute conference call sales pitch for Harvard Risk Management insurance that simply repeated much of the information in the online video. The only way to get the "job" that I was applying for was to buy their insurance, buy sales materials, etcetera.

    Harvard Risk Management does not have offices and does not have a regional support structure. The only opportunity you really have is to do independent insurance sales. Anyone who wants to can get a "job" with this company by watching the video online, filling out the form, and then buying their insurance.

    The insurance itself may or may not be useful, but the structure of the company is a pyramid scam.

    Not enough support offered by the parent company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Harvard Risk Management (Columbia, SC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I received a very professional phone call on a Monday requesting a telephone interview to be scheduled for the following day, Tuesday. Lisa handled the interview in the most excellent manner and worked with me through a myriad of inquiries as I have worked toward my, just today decision to join the team!

    Management Position With HRMC‏ Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Harvard Risk Management.

    Interview

    Terrible experience!

    The recruiter wasn't expecting me to start the interview by telling him I had a few questions before deciding if I was pursuing this opportunity or not.

    He was thrown off balance, and I say that because his interview questions were, "did you watch the video I sent?", "did you listen to the message I sent?"...that was the extent of the interview.

    He then put me on hold and came back saying these interviews are to check the applicants goals and not to answer questions.

    The recruiter was upset with the situation and became less courteous, aggressive even ...ended up telling me to watch the videos/messages again and call him back if interested....

    Interview Questions

    • did you watch the videos I sent?

      did you listen to the message I sent?

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Harvard Risk Management.

    Interview

    I received an email asking me to learn more about the company online and then allowed me to set up an "interview". Like the others, it was a 45 minute canned conference call. If you don't buy the product, you don't get the job.

    If I wanted to recruit others to recruit others to recruit others... I'd have a successful Avon or Herbalife. Steer clear of this one. They found my resume (which is only viewable to employers) on Beyond.com.

    I'm not paying money to apply for a job. I have a college degree and Series 7, 9/10, and 63 licensure. You don't need any of those qualifications to recognize this is not in the best interest of the applicant.
