    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hartford, CT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Travelers (Hartford, CT) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and had a phone screen within a week. The "talent acquisition rep" and I stayed in touch via email after I took an online test/screen but it was almost 4 weeks before I was contacted for an in-person interview. I interviewed 1:1 with 6 people in succession over 2 hours. I was ultimately offered the job about a week and a half later, and started about 2 weeks after that.

    Interview Questions

    • I did not have any difficult questions - it was more of a conversation than a test.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate but my offer was so amazing that I did not need to negotiate anything.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Travelers.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter to set up an initial phone interview. Phone interview lasted about 20-25 minutes. She just asked me to walk her through my resume and then she told me more about the position. I was contacted last that day to fill out a formal application and to set up an onsite interview with the hiring manager.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Travelers (Des Moines, IA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Process took about and month from phone screening to hire. I had a phone screening and an in person interview was scheduled right after for the following week. The in person interview was conducted by two individuals that you would be reporting to. One person read from a sheet with behavioral questions (Tell me about a tie when...) and the other asked follow up questions about your resume and deeper questions in regards to your behavioral answers. They seemed very interested in you as a person and not just another candidate.

    Associate Account Executive Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Travelers (Saint Louis, MO) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process overall took about a month to complete. I was first contacted by a HR member from Travelers' Headquarters, to setup a phone interview the next week. The phone interview was quick, only took about 20 minutes and was mainly to verify my background (resume) and to then forward my information over to the field office that I was applying for. I then received an email from the field office manager to setup an in-person interview. At this first in-person interview I met with three people in the department I would be working for, including the direct manager. This took about 3 hours and I was asked general interview questions about the position and my history. After this interview I was then contacted to complete one more in-person interview in the office again to meet with my potential manager's boss and to complete a case study. After speaking with the Regional VP and completing the case study I was contact the next week with an official job offering.

    Interview Questions

    • Every manager or department member is going to ask different questions, mostly about prior experience and what interests you about the position you are applying for. There was nothing out of the ordinary that threw me off (or anyone else I would think). I would look up general interview questions online and prepare this way.   1 Answer

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Travelers (Hartford, CT).

    Interview

    Applied for the position online, got a call from the recruiter about 1-2 weeks later. 20 minute phone interview for the position, then about a week later got a call for an on-site interview. Met with recruiter for 15 minutes, then manager of the position for about 30 mins. Then met with someone from HR who asked all of the same exact questions again for another 20 mins. Overall friendly people. I was suprised I was really not asked many questions. Most of the interview was the manager describing the position to me and what I would be doing.

    Interview Questions

    • Some of the basic ones I was asked were:
      - how would I rate myself with Access, Excel, etc.
      -describe my current job/myself
      -how do I work under pressure and in situations where change happens frequently
      -how do i handle working on mulitple projects at once

      None of the questions were unexpected or difficult. Very straightforward.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Travelers.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume online and was contacted by a recruiter within the week. Had a brief phone interview discussing the role and very quick background questions. Was brought in for a first round interview about a month later.

     First round was with four team members, one at a time. The first was with the hiring manager who asked typical STAR interview questions. The next three interviews were mostly me interviewing them and talking briefly about myself. They didn’t have any standard questions for me. It was an opportunity for me to interview them I guess and for them to get a feel for my personality.

    I was notified of a second round interview a week later and came in a few days after that. It was a case study interview with emphasis on financial statement analysis. It was tricky but manageable. Mostly because I had never done something like that in an interview. I got an offer a week later.
