    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Selective Insurance (Allentown, PA).

    Interview

    You are expected to jump through hoops and commit 4 hours interviewing with multiple people. HR is unorganized and rude when discussing your employment history. Waste of time. Interviewed with 6 people!

    Easy Interview

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Selective Insurance.

    Interview

    The interview was a phone call with the departments I met with at the open house. The majority of the questions came straight from my resume and the others were behavioral type questions. The interviewers were really nice and led the interview like a conversation.

    Way too long of a process. Seriously, way too long. Minimally 15 interviews with 15 people. Like, is this NASA or the Secret Service? Why all the travel doe interviews too?

    Scrum Master Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glastonbury, CT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Selective Insurance (Glastonbury, CT) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Received the first call in early NOV from HR about my application that I had submitted in AUG, we chatted and scheduled a call with the hiring manager fairly immediately. I had the hiring manager phone call the following week, then had the in-person interviews the week after that.



    I had 1x1 interviews at Selective's Glastonbury office with four gentlemen over four hours on one day: two managers of application delivery and two AVPs of application delivery. The interviews moved along smoothly, everyone was professional and polite.

    

I rate the overall experience as negative because Selective Insurance never 'closed the loop' after the interview process. I never heard back from Selective after my in-person interviews. I followed up via email twice with the recruiter but did not receive a response and still had not heard back four months later, as of 3/9/2020. Received an email response a few hours after my initial posting of this interview review.

    The interview process took three weeks total. However the time from application to interviews was approximately three months.

    Interview Questions

    • Some behavioral questions, some light agile-related questions, i.e. What metrics do you use to measure progress? Some Rally software-specific questions.   Answer Question
