    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Hanover Insurance Group in August 2019.

    Interview

    Met with 2 groups of interviewers. They were managers from claims departments. They asked the typical background questions and a few customer service situational questions. They ask that you have questions ready for them about the company and position. If you ask intelligent and thoughtful questions, you're in.

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Hanover Insurance Group.

    Interview

    Don’t waste your time here. The recruiters won’t respond to you after the first round interview. This has happened two years in a row with me interviewing here. The campus recruiting team really needs to improve.

    Senior CGL Claims Adjuster Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Itasca, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    Hanover needs to review the candidate selection process. I applied on their site in April-clearly outlining my background/experience going back 10 years-and interviewed over the phone in mid May. I was then contacted to schedule an in person 1 hour interview on 5/29 w/3 managers, all of whom were provided w/copies of my resume. 10 minutes into the interview they inform me that my background is not what they are looking for. 1 of the 3 was gracious and apologetic but all everyone had to do was simply read what I had submitted prior to the interview. Big waste of everyone’s time & resources. If Hanover HR contacts you, make sure they have thoroughly reviewed your background before you take the time to talk to them in person.

    Interview

    Average interview with hr, then a final round with 6 actuaries at different levels. Each round had 2 people in it. They expect you to ask questions about the role and gauge how you will fit into their teams.

    Interview Questions

    • Many of the actuaries care about your transcript and want to know why you didn't do well in a class. They also asked why you wanted to be an actuary and what you were looking for. Not super friendly   Answer Question
