    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Hartford (Charlotte, NC) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was like speed dating. You say and interviewed with 12 different reps. You had 90 seconds to answer their question. It appeared they used a 1-10 scale format. I thought I did well but I didn't get an offer. I interviewed once over the phone with a recruiter and then the 12 panel interview at the office.

    Interview

    Applied through indeed and got a call back a couple of days later. I had a telephone interview that was pleasant and was informed of job duties and responsibilities. I have to put this as one of my least stressful interviews I have ever had. The recruiters were very nice to speak with.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at The Hartford (New Hartford, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was asked to do a phone interview to go over my employment history. She was grilling me for exact dates for my entire work history and basically telling me that I needed to get myself together beacuse I didn't remember the exact date I left my very first teenage job. (Also telling me that they WOULD be calling EVERY old employer and needed to know EVERY detail in a very demeaning way). She repeatedly asked me if I would ACTUALLY pass a drug test and the background check even though I assured her the first time that neither of those would be an issue.

    I was offered a second interview. She then told me that the next interview process would be like speed dating and asked if I'd ever speed dated before (which I felt was an utterly inappropriate question) and that I would be answering rapid fire questions in front of a panel of managers and would only have 90 seconds to answer behaviorally based questions and that I needed to be more specific about situations than I was in the call.

    I ended up cancelling the second interview because I felt so uncomfortable during the phone interview.

    After speaking with friends, I feel that this was the right decision. They stated that they would cry regularly on the call floor and would hear others crying because of the insane expectations on the floor. If you're looking for money and no sanity, it's the place to work, they said.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at The Hartford (Windsor, CT) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The pay for this position is extremely low, approx $28000. I have managed a CSR team of approximately 60 staff members, so I know this role very well. I have been unemployed for awhile so I thought it would be a no brainier. But, the HR person told me my experience intimidated the hiring manager do there would be no interview. Truthfully, I probably would have not been happy doing this low level type of work for long and based on info on how they treat employees, not the company for me.

    Interview Questions

    • There was an online assessment for the CSR role. I was contacted directly by their HR dept & was told that my responses were 100% spot on. Most scenarios were basic math and scenarios that targeted behavior. Simple stuff.   1 Answer
