    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Starr Companies (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was invited to an onsite interview with a person from HR and a manager. The HR person was very nice and I enjoyed my interview experience with her. The manager barely looked at me during my interview with him and seemed uninterested the majority of the time.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Starr Companies (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through employee referral, was contacted within 1 week for an interview the following week. Interview consisted of 4, 30 min meetings- 1 with HR, 3 with managers/ directors/ people the position works under. I thought it was very well organized. It was great to meet with people I could potentially work with, as to get a better feel for what the position would actually be like. HR contacted me within a week of the in-person interview to request a background check and let me know they're putting together an offer for me. Seamless, easy process and great getting to know the people I could be working for.

    Junior Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Starr Companies (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process commenced with a phone screen with Talent Acquisition Manager & then I was called in for an in-person interview with the Talent Acquisition Manager and HR Director. I thought the interview itself went well, as they mentioned they would follow up in regards to next steps but I never heard anything. Considering the reviews the HR department received on this site alone, I'm not surprised.

    Interview

    Interview with HR And the hiring manager. Also ended up interviewing with a few other people in the group and the Chief Actuary. Good discussion about the role and what my contributions would be. Not a lot of technical questions but more of a general discussion on my prior work history and skills. Ended up going to lunch with the hiring manager and also coming back the next week to meet with an executive.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Starr Companies (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online and notified within a few weeks to come in. Went in and spoke with just one manager. Very respectful and straight forward about the job.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Starr Companies (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Probably the most unprofessional series of interviews I had so far in my career. First interview was cancelled a few hours before on the day of due to a scheduling conflict (good thing I often check my emails). Second attempt, I arrived on time only to be told to come back in two hors due to yet another scheduling conflict. When I finally met with the HR representative, the interviewer was insulting stating that the company was looking for a "mature" worker, "not some 20 something year old" to help support the team and back-up support the senior executive. (Let's put it this way: if it was not for a tight job market, I would have completely blown off the follow-up interview.) Second interviewer was at least pleasant and on time.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to explain one of my bullets on my resume regarding one of my previous positions.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Didn't appreciate the ageist tone of my first interview. I also know two former employees who commented the company in general was not supportive off its employees.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Starr Companies (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I had two back to back interviews on the same day. I met with a woman in HR and she asked me questions about my resume. She also asked me behavioral questions. This part of the interview lasted 30 minutes. Then, I met with an underwriter working in the profit center for which I had applied. We talked more about the internship details, and I was able to ask him more questions about the company and the position. This part of the interview also lasted about thirty minutes. The entire interview was very easy and straight forward. No surprises or trick questions. Both interviewers were very outgoing and made me feel very comfortable. I received an offer about 6 weeks later and I accepted.
