    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I got an email from a recruiter to schedule a phone interview. First interview was just behavior type question, "tell me about a time when...." After that I was scheduled another phone interview with a hiring manager at their corporate office in Boston. More behavioral questions. Finally I interviewed with 3 different people in the Chicago office. These interviews were much more casual and conversational. They asked me a little about myself and told me a lot about the position and the office environment.

    Pleasant process- phone interview with the recruiter on my experience and was able to do a Skype interview with 2 managers the next week. The following week I was offered the position contingent on the background check, which was told should be about 2 weeks.. the managers were very nice and set a comfortable tone.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied on line and received a response the next day. Had a phone interview with the recruiter and it went well. He asked a couple of behavioral questions and asked to describe the first thing that comes to mind. I was told I'd get an email within the next 2 weeks. Received an email a day before the 2 week mark and was asked to meet with the manager. I met with the manager and was really asked nothing but two or three questions at the most. The manager talked about the position more than anything and seemed to be in a rush. I felt as if I was being interviewed just because I was already scheduled. I received an email exactly two weeks after the interview advising that I would not get an offer. The whole process took about a little over a month.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance (Atlanta, GA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted an online application and received a call back/email from HR a week later for phone interview. Was contacted 2 days later by HR to schedule a face to face interview. Essentially had 3 different interviews the same day. Spoke with UW supervisor, UW manager, and an Underwriter to see if I would be a good fit for the role and the rest of the team. The interview was professional and easy going. They really made me feel welcomed. Next steps after initial face to face will be to speak with a higher up from corporate office via telephone (haven't yet gotten to this stage). Was informed that the hiring process is a little lengthy and may take up to 2 months before a decision is made. No difficult or tricky questions; the STAR method is used during the interview so prepare to talk about past experiences and how you've dealt with those situations.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance (Boston, MA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied on the company website. Received a phone interview request a couple days later. The day after the phone interview I received an in person interview request. Three separate interviews, roughly 30 minutes each.

    The interviews were conversation and very friendly. Typical interview questions, a couple behavioral questions too. If you prepare by knowing what skills they are looking for and having a few stories in mind to use as example you will be fine.

    Interview

    The recruiters need better communication with the candidate and the interviewer. I missed out on an interview because the company recruiter failed to give me the name of the interviewer(s) when I requested it in a timely manner and went on vacation. I thought it was strange, since the recruiter email said I was confirmed for that time. When I asked who I would be seeing, she said she would need to get it confirmed and let me know. I replied thanks, and I please send me the information. No reply. I emailed her again and nothing. I finally called and that is when the out of office voice message came on saying she was on vacation and to contact the general email address. I did, but no reply. I tried again the day of the interview but no reply. I thought that they were not interested anymore. I got a call (voicemail) from the interview asking me if there was a miscommunication and if I was still interested. I was driving at the time and couldn't call back. I replied within the hour and got his voicemail. I left a nice message explaining the situation and that I was still interested. I also emailed him. I followed again with the general email box and they said they apologized for the delay and that I didn't get the information. Nothing about an interview. I then emailed the interviewer, who said he was not ignoring me, but trying to figure out what happened. Within the hour, I got a call form the original recruiter saying they went with someone else, apologized, and also said that my email address used on to register on the company site was different than my resume. I told them that my email had my name and email address to use, and my cell number, and at no time before did the recruiter mention anything about my email address being different on my resume from the registration.
