    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at National Interstate (Richfield, OH) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewing process took from August 21-November 8. This was the longest interviewing process I had experienced. I would hardly ever get updated unless I reached out and I still wouldn't hear back for days after. I first had a phone interview then was asked to come in and meet with three people. I felt the interview went great and got great feedback. I didn't hear anything for a few weeks so I reached out. Then I was contacted to speak with the HR Director, again a few weeks went by so I reached out then in my email I received a Personality test (2 hours) to take. Did that right away and again didn't hear anything. A couple of weeks later got a call from HR to talk salary. Was told I was a front runner. Then got a call a couple of weeks later that I needed to come and meet with the CEO and again with the CFO. Was told she was worried I was moving along on other interviews with other companies and would make a decision soon. Probably 3-4 weeks went by I reached out via email, about a week after was emailed back and said they just finished up with other candidates (even though I was told was down to me and 1 other) and she would get with me by Friday. I heard back on Wednesday the following week that they decided to go with someone else. I have never had such an unprofessional interview experience in my life.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at National Interstate.

    Interview

    Interview process is extensive and drawn out takes a few months. First you have a phone interview with HR. If they feel you are a good fit your resume will be forwarded to the hiring manager for review. They will call you in for an in person interview after the hiring manager gives their approval. You meet with a minimum of 5 people individually. Questions are not difficult. Also have to do a personality/ aptitude test.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National Interstate (Richfield, OH) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Three 30 minute interviews; one with another supervisor, one a manager and the final a director. Very ackward interview they would ask one question and then ask for a question from me. Director was fiddling on his phone during the first two minutes of the interview very unprofessional and an immediate turn off. Withdrew from the process after that interview.

    Risk Management Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at National Interstate in August 2016.

    Interview

    A very odd experience. I applied to the position after a recruiter reached out to me via LinkedIn. The recruiter had said via her message that "I thought you would be a great fit!" But her demeanor was anything but cheerful . . . or professional.

    The telephonic interview started OK. The she asked me what I did. I proceeded to tell her. A few words in, she cut me off to tell me what she thought I did. I corrected her, politely mind you, but I could tell she had lost interest.

    In addition, I had no idea what the company's expectation were for me. The recruiter said I would be based on the West Coast, have a roster of clients and would be autonomous. And that was basically about it. There was no elaboration on how I'd reach out to these clients (e-mail, phone), if there was a schedule or log I should follow, if a claim or other event (i.e. auto accident) would prompt a response from me. Nothing more.

    I asked four or five questions of the recruiter to try to extract information and learn more about the position, but her one-line responses were no insightful. The last half of the interview was like pulling teeth. Finally, I gave up, said I had no more questions. She did me the courtesy of thanking me for my time (which surprised me due to her lack of professionalism).

    Not surprisingly, I received a template e-mail the following week advising that I had been passed over for the job. Good thing too, because it saved me the trouble of contacting them to remove myself as a candidate.

    Assistant Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richfield, OH

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Interstate (Richfield, OH).

    Interview

    Phone screen with a recruiter, three consecutive in person interviews, etc...There is supposed to be a call back point with the nod to move on for a final with the CEO or a decline. Unfortunately it's at this stage where the communication became thin. The recruiter never contacted me at the milestone dates she provided and I simply got tired of calling. If they can't deliver a turn down, or can't handle the decision process to get to a Yes/No point, I would hate to see how getting anything else done pans out.
