    Underwriter Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at QBE (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    HR team seemed to be a bit of a slow down in making the process move along. Also not very communicative especially when asking for feedback on the interviews. QBE interviewers and employees on the other hand were fantastic! Very dynamic

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at QBE (Madison, WI) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Multiple phone screens and an onsite. Phone screens seemed a little confused, multiple people called me without knowing anybody else had called me. Overall, positive experience, despite a little bit of clear miscommunication.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at QBE in April 2016.

    Interview

    First it started off with a brief over the phone screening and I heard back same day that they wanted to move forward with a formal interview. The HR department tried to schedule me a flight in from school but it didn't work out so the interviews were conducted over the phone. I spoke with multiple individuals on the FP&A team. Depending on their role the questions varied. They really wanted to know about skill level with Excel and Powerpoint.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at QBE (Philadelphia, PA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Came in and met with the VP of the department, asked some questions about my background and my experience. Went over the job and answered any questions I had. Very straight forward and was maybe 30 minutes long. Also had a phone interview afterwords with my direct manager who was out of the office, again generic questions about my background and just seeing if i was a good fit.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at QBE (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    They asked me to fill a questionnaire before the interview but nothing happened then. I asked them several times but no one replied. I guess they send the questionnaire to everyone who applied.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at QBE.

    Interview

    I've definitely got mixed feelings about this interview process. First of all, the people with whom I interviewed with were very cordial and amiable. I was interviewed by three people--all of whom were incredibly professional. The process took over two hours--we discussed the work environment, what was expected of me, the corporate culture. All went well. I went home and sent off my thank-you notes--making sure to personalize each one. Trust me, I have absolutely no expectations when it comes to being hired because let's face it--you can have great skills, but it comes down to two things. Chemistry or who you may know. So I'm pretty-much ok if I don't get the job--it's important to just roll with the flow.
    What I'm NOT ok with is no response. I had the interview over three weeks ago. I was told that the spot needed to be filled ASAP. So--why couldn't the Hiring manager not get back to me to let me know I wasn't hired? There is this little thing called "common courtesy". Obviously the HR department hasn't been well-versed in common courtesy.
    Thusly, I have no opinion on this company.
