    Underwriting Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at The General (Nashville, TN) in November 2009.

    Interview

    This was straight after college and I needed some work so my brother in law referred. To be honest you really would have had to know someone within the company to get a good chance at the job. It seems very internalized. So I applied online and my brother in law told the HR department about my application. We interviewed on the phone and then in person. I was called back three days later with the offer.

    Attorney Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The General (Nashville, TN) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Feedback from interviewer was thorough and prompt. Every step of the way was outlined and person interviewed could know what was expected. Growing company moving to improve revenue and image in industry. Evidently under new management or capital infusion. I was not offered a position, but feel the offered salary amounts are likely somewhat below industry standards at present.

    Claims Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Independence, OH
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The General (Independence, OH).

    Interview

    Worst experience that I have ever had with in person interview. We did a total of two group interviews with different departments and mangers. They asked me the standard corporate questions that lack good conversation. The HR rep failed to inform me their process and that I would be doing two sets of interviews. Received a call a week later with the HR who was unprofessional and told me that I was not qualify for the position and thought I wasn't interested. The next day they offer me the job and I turned them down because of how they treated me in the process. Why would I accept that job if that is how they treat their employees? The HR rep should be fired on how unprofessional she was with the candidates.

    Reasons for Declining

    I was treated poorly and the HR at the General was unprofessional. I would rather work for a place that wants me for what I bring to the table. I believe that others wanted more pay and they couldn't afford it.

    Claims Adjuster Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The General (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted pretty late after putting in my resume, which had no claims experience on it. I say hold tight. Once I had the interview I felt really good about joining the company and I don't regret taking this job at all. I love it here. I actually passed up an offer I got two days prior because I wanted to work here more. The interview was extremely casual more of a get-to-know-you session than anything, I feel like they kind of picked their candidates they wanted to hire before they brought them in.

    Also the drug test here was kind of intense, not going to lie. Nobody sits in the room with you if they stand right outside the door and it was creepy haha.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The General (Nashville, TN).

    Interview

    The interview process was very simple. Lot of behavioral questions and how prior experiences can help with the stresses of the job.

    Negotiation

    There is none, it was take it or leave it. Very weird, also if you applying internally HR states that they do not disclose the salary hiring range. Weird.
