    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Phone interview first which was a more difficult interview. Don't take this lightly - prepare answers to difficult questions and research the company. I then had a face to face interview with the manager.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance (Aliso Viejo, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    It was a two on one interview, with standard "Tell me a time when... " questions. Nothing too bad, but I did happen to see that they had a ton of people interviewing for the position, so there was a lot of competition.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance.

    Interview

    The interview process was typical for the industry. I think I went through three meetings, the last one was to discuss salary and benefits. I have to write more, but I don't think that more is necessary. Be prepared, have a resume, look nice and know what you are talking about and you should be fine.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance.

    Interview

    All behavioral questions for the first round. Typical questions that ask you to tie in your resume with traits. I would recommend just knowing your resume. Also be prepared to answer questions about strengths and weaknesses. Also know a little about what the position does and why LIberty Mutual.

    Underwriting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance (Richmond, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed by the regional manager and a recently hired employee who started off in the same intern position. The feel of the interview was more of an ongoing relaxed conversation more than a straight question answer format, with the interviewer also giving their insight on questions and either disagreeing or agreeing with yours or each others opinions.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance (Boston, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was tedious. There was a phone interview and 3 separate interviews with different managers. They asked behavioral questions as they knew that I didn't have background in underwriting.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance.

    Interview

    Applied online through Liberty Mutual website. Received a call about two weeks later to tell me a little bit about the internship, what it entailed, and to answer any basic questions I had. Set up a date and time for a phone interview/screen. Phone interview lasted about 45 minutes. Rapid fire with mostly all behavioral questions. Started off with asking where and whom I learned about the internship from and why exactly I was interested in interning with Liberty Mutual and why as an Underwriting Intern. Heard back from them less than 2 weeks later to set up an on-site interview. Stay tuned...
