    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Penn Mutual (Horsham, PA).

    Interview

    Second interview was cancelled the day of without warning or explanation, with promise of reschedule. Then total radio silence. They seem to really enjoy spinning their wheels and wasting candidates' time, perhaps to gauge the labor market. Rude and unprofessional!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Penn Mutual (Horsham, PA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was about two hours in a half and involved meeting with five employees. I met with the head of the department, a director, a manager, a senior, and the director of HR. Everyone was easy to talk to and the HR director was surprisingly more intense, as far as asking questions, than the head of the tax department.

    Corporate Marketing & Communications Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Horsham, PA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Penn Mutual (Horsham, PA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I had never had a professional job or internship like this and in all honesty I was a bit nervous. I made sure to arrive early to sign into the building. Once they gave me a room to prepare myself, I was greeted by the first woman who actually became my boss. Soon after small talk we sat down and was greeted by another woman. The two woman called another gentleman on the phone to listen into and contribute to the interview via conference call. At this point, I did not know what to expect. However, they were very welcoming! I felt comfortable answering or elaborating on anything they asked. At the end, I made sure to leave with business cards and thanked them for this opportunity. Originally, there was only one position open that I was interviewing for. However, the way I conducted myself and expressed my interest for the company, I was offered a different position! I would still be an intern, but with much more responsibility given that I would be interning directly under the AVP of Engagement Marketing. The main takeaway is to go into the interview confident!
