    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Selective Insurance (Branchville, NJ).

    Pretty typical. 4 rounds of interviews with individuals. Many of them asked the same questions. Offered a position over the phone, sent offer package to home.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Selective Insurance (Branchville, NJ).

    Interview

    Standard interview questions, (provide background, tell us how you found the job), then into the technical aspects of the position. Interviewed with 2 people first, then 2 more on an individual basis. Total interview took 2 1/2 hours. Questions were somewhat prying, as to insinuate or skeptical of your skill levels not meeting requirements. I got a question about "what is the difference between inner/outer join in SQL?", and to someone who is an established SQL writer it's like asking "You know how to tie your shoes?" Also had some strange behavioral/personal questions.. "If I was a bird, what would I be and why?. Poor interview tactics. Voluntarily withdrew from posting.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Selective Insurance (Branchville, NJ) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Very late back people. I went for IT manager position and Assistant VP was asking me technical questions how you will do the work? No manager level questions. The way he asked the questions wasn't right. He was critic. I went for NJ office for interview. IT team was good and good campus. HR person did not get back to me with decisions. I think doesn't matter you pass or fail they need to appreciate your effort.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Selective Insurance (Branchville, NJ) in August 2012.

    Interview

    My interview was face to face with 4 team members each taking approximately 45 minutes. Each interview covered a series of questions requiring examples (Behavorial Interview). I was prepared for this type of interview so it wasn't difficult.

    Interview Questions

    • Selective trains their employees to conduct Behavioral Interviewing so expect the typical questions and come prepared with examples of successes, failures and how you handled them, etc.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Although I tried negotiating there wasn't much consideration for my request. I was told the budget was tight and it would have been more than what they paid existing employees in similar positions. I had only asked for $2K more. I later learned this wasn't true. I still accepted the position to gain additional experience and have no regrets.
