    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at OneBeacon Insurance Group.

    Interview

    Initial screening interview via phone. Very laid back, general questions asked and recruiter was very nice. She followed up quickly to schedule an in person interview. That last about one hour and was also laid back. Overall a good interview experience. Met with three people during the in person interview and all asked similar questions. Great emphasis on multitasking for this role and dealing with different personalities.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OneBeacon Insurance Group (Denver, CO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First a phone interview to go over your resume, and overall goals. She will determine if you get the second phone interview. I didn't think I did well on the first one, so I was surprised / lucky to get the second. The second phone interview will last about an hour, and they will ask you many questions about yourself / experience / OneBeacon. Lastly, you will interview in person. If you do well in that interview, you will be offered the position.
