I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Hartford

Interview

The interview panel did a thorough job of determining qualifications and experience for the role. Several rounds of interviews were conducted. The HR/Recruiting team dropped the ball in communication. No responses were given after multiple attempts. Corporate communication completely dropped out of sight and failed miserably. Eventually, the automated rejection was received more than a month after the final interview. Treat all candidates like adults. We can handle rejection, but at least inform us when you have made a decision.

Interview

I’ve been applying to this company since 2021. Back in january 2023 I applied for a position and the recruiter reached out to me to set up a phone interview. The day of nobody reached out to me and returned my email. Recently I was going through my email and seen the message so I thought it would be worth a try to reach out to the recruiter again. She immediately apologized and sent me a job to apply for and stated once I applied to let her know. So I did that, a week went past and I heard nothing. So I emailed her again. She stated that my app was denied because the amount I wanted was out of the pay range. Even though it was in the middle of the amount they had posted in the job description. We agreed to a different pay and I told her I was still interested. I check online and my app was now in a “pending” stage. Only to receive another denial for the same position that she pulled the app out of. This whole recruitment process was horrible and if this is a reflection of the company that I once thought so highly of I will never apply again.

Interview Questions
  • None, I was not contacted as stated and instead was ghosted.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Hartford (Hartford, CT) in Oct 2023

Interview

I was scheduled for a fifteen minute phone interview that turned into four minutes with HR. They rushed me through the first two standard questions and didn't really answer any of the ones I asked. They then told me they'd let me know if they thought I could be brought in for additional interviews and ended the call. The representative from HR rushed through her piece, didn't listen to anything I had to say, and did not care about communicating anything related to the role. I was referred to this position because of my qualifications and was completely disregarded on the call. I would have preferred not to get an interview at all and won't be applying to this company again.

Very friendly and understanding. Would definitely recommend. We spoke hours and I wasn’t able to work the hours after training. My recruiter informed me he loved my honesty and to please let him know if anything changed.

After submitting my application and resume on September 11th, I heard back within a few days from the hiring team. Then was offered a second interview with two managers. The interview process was good overall. I used the STAR method to answer the few carefully curated examples I had of “times when”

Graduate Student

Hi! Looking for some advice regarding hiring processes. I completed 2 interviews with the company and they emailed to say they "want to put me forward for the job" and asked for references, passport, and for me to do a background check. I didn't hear anything for a week, so then emailed to check on my application status. They responded saying they would get back at the end of that week. Its been 2 weeks since. I emailed last week to ask for an update and have not received a response. Thoughts?

Got booted from my former position about 4 years ago, which I LOVED. I have the impression I was "kept" in sympathy. Now that I have my feet beneath me, I feel like I'm running in place. Over the past 2 years, I've probably applied for about 100 positions in other departments. True, a few were unlikely moonshots, but for the most part I didn't misrepresent myself. Am I the world's worst interviewer? Otherwise.. shouldn't I have been accepted elsewhere, by choice?

Administrative Assistant

I haven't worked since Jan. 2020 when my job as administrative assistant for the Hospitalist group was eliminated. I can't begin to count the number of applications submitted, interviews I've had, jobs that I was told were mine then they weren't, etc. Several jobs have fallen through or not panned out. I am not a job hopper and want to stay where I go. I have a zoom interview tomorrow for a front desk receptionist position at an oral surgeon's office. Any interview tips are appreciated.
