    Inbound Sales Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Antonio, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Hartford (San Antonio, TX) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I was referred by current employee. I applied online and next day I received an email to setup a phone interview.

    The phone interview was great, professional and encouraging. Ms. Shari, the Recruiter, went over the position's job description, asked questions about my work experience, and behavioral questions related to customer service. I was given a date (2 weeks after) to interview with Management.

    The in person interview was a fun experience. Everyone was accommodating, nice, professional and knowledgeable. They asked behavioral questions all related to customer service. Make sure you study the STAR method. Each of the 10 interviewees spoke with 2 different Managers.

    Next day I received a phone call and got a job offer!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Hartford (Hartford, CT) in September 2009.

    Interview

    Initial interview was with Personnel. They asked typical questions regarding past experience, education, why I wanted the job, why I would be good for it. The next series of interviews were with 3 different attorneys. They were all very relaxed and asked typical interview questions, nothing unusual. The atmosphere was very relaxed, the department and staff were very supportive and close knit. It was definitely a team environment.

    Associate Claims Adjuster Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aurora, IL
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Hartford (Aurora, IL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty simple and took about a month. I applied online, passed the initial phone interview and was scheduled for an in-person interview the next week. The in-person interview consisted of standard behavioral questions, all pretty easy. It went fairly well except that halfway through one of the supervisors came in to conduct his portion of the interview which was basically the same set of questions I had just answered. It all felt very rushed after that and I could kind of tell he wasn't really too invested in the interview.

    Applied in 2006, i was given a relatively easy verbal and arithmetic exam. Should not be a problem for any individual to pass that has a college degree. This was followed up with a interview with the Head of the underwriting department. Interview was very relaxed. All behavioral questions, nothing technical was asked. Even spent a quarter of the time talking about hobbies and regular cocktail type conversations. Overall very good experience.

    STD Claims Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Hartford.

    Interview

    7/31/15 Applied Online. Completed a 90 min or so online assessment. 8/5/15 Setup phone interview via email 8/7/15 Phone interview with recruiter. She was nice and knowledgeable. She went over my background and asked basic questions. She proceeded to explain the job in detail including the salary and told me the job was "black and white." The job was mostly organizing claims and said it would be a simple job for me. She suggested that I apply for the LTD Claims position instead since she believed it was a better fit and they were urgently trying to fill the upcoming training class. She proceeded to say that she knew the hiring manager at my location and would speak to him/her about me. At this point, I was under the impression that I would have a follow up phone interview or an in-person interview soon. Anyways, I completed the online application for LTD Claims Analyst that day and afterwards on the job page, the STD position was updated to "thank you but you're not considered..." It was prompt but expected. I checked the job page on 8/13/15 and the LTD position was re-posted. I still didn't get a response which worried me since they responded quickly to the other position. 9/10/15 I decided that 5 weeks of inactivity was enough and decided to write this since it's unlikely that they would schedule interviews the week prior to their announced training date.

    The process left me feeling that either I was lost in the shuffle between recruiter and hiring manager or that the recruiter misled me.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at The Hartford (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    The entire hiring/interview process was horrific. Extremely unprofessional and serious lack of communication. They originally told me that I would hear back within a week, but after a month I had yet to hear anything. The online portal didn't show any updates either. Complete waste of time.
