    Commercial Underwriter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Westfield Insurance.

    Interview

    The first step was a typical phone interview. Afterwards, you were invited for an on site interview. Accommodations were provided at their on site hotel. On site interview consisted of a tour, lunch and panel interview. Interview was panel style that consisted of 2-4 employees at a time. The on site interview process was quite lengthy and took the better part of a work day.

    Interview Questions

    • Be prepared for a group interview containing several situational questions. I would recommend having a good background story in place as most questions were designed to see how you would fit in with the company. Questions were not as job specific oriented as I had expected, mostly personality based questions.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Westfield Insurance (Knoxville, TN).

    Interview

    I was recruited to interview for this position. The hiring manager was very friendly and made me feel at ease. They flew me to Westfield for the interview. I initially met with the person I was going to report to. Then I met with executive management for lunch. They put me to ease and the questions were "under the radar" and instead of direct.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Westfield Insurance.

    Interview

    Most contact was via email. The interview process started with an initial phone screen from HR. Then a first interview was scheduled with basic/typical questions. The second interview was scheduled by the end of the week for the following week. These were done as a committee, the first interview with one person asking the questions, the second had a round of questions one right after the other each from a different person. Just be prepared for multiple interviewers in one room at the same time, stay calm, and answer honestly.

    Interview Questions

    • "What is the biggest misconception people have about you?"   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It was a very fair offer. I have heard people suggest to get what you can up front like vacation time the first year, higher pay (mine was very fair) since the raises seem to average about 2%-3% each year.

    The hiring process is different in many of the departments. But the one I interviewed for was typical for the area I interviewed for.
