    Vice President Audit Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at XL Catlin (Hartford, CT).

    Interview

    I was interviewing for a Senior Audit role at XL Catlin and after a series of phone and skype interviews had been selected to come and visit the group in Hartford. Everyone was very professional. I met all who I would have been interacting with if I had been offered the position. It was a grueling day in that it was 5 to 6 hours of group interviews regarding my management philosophy as well as work style. I felt that after the interview was over, there was not much else I could have added to the process.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at XL Catlin (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Online application, video interview, phone interviews with senior analyst and portfolio manager, superday at the office with head of department, two directors/PMs, and with HR. Everyone was very nice and made me feel comfortable, but one of the PMs was incredibly arrogant and condescending. They also told me they'd have decisions in two weeks, but did not give me a response until I followed up twice.

    Interview

    Really general questions but did not get into the next round. Mostly the recruiter asked the question about the resume and also asked some computer skills. But recruiter said she would give me feedback after two days. Actually, after a week, I sent an email and she said I didn't get into next round.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at XL Catlin (Hartford, CT) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a outside recruiter for the position and had a 30 minute initial interview. The recruiter did not know much about the position and had yet to talk to the hiring manager regarding the job. She was familiar with the company as a whole, and provided me with solid next steps in the process and got back to me when she said she would.

    Service Desk Analyst II Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at XL Catlin (Scottsdale, AZ) in July 2016.

    Interview

    It involved interviewing with the management team which went from the local, regional, and then global management team. The questions asked were a mix of technical and customer service type questions. I found the interviewers to be very professional but also laid back, I felt at ease and did not feel as if they were trying to exert too much pressure. I found the XL Catlin office to be very clean and modern, they had just been given new equipment so I had no qualms about the quality of the tools they had at their disposal. Overall it would be a nice place to work at.
