    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Zurich North America (Schaumburg, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I received a call from an internal recruiter about a position for which I was well suited. I consider myself to be open to opportunity although not actively looking. As I thought this would be a good fit, I pursued the opportunity, Which, it turned out, was not an opportunity, rather a colossal waste of time, based on Zurich's never-ending reorganization. The interviewer then proceeded to read questions off of a sheet of paper, avoiding eye contact throughout the process. When it was time to move to the next question on the list, the question just answered was crossed off of the list. As more than three months have passed since the interview and I have heard nothing back, I am going to say no offer is forthcoming. Which is fine. I could not imagine being desperate enough to work for the person who interviewed me or in an environment that treated me with such a stunning lack of respect.

    Risk Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schaumburg, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zurich North America (Schaumburg, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I had five round interviews. Three phone interviews and two interviews in person in the span of six months, which were all behavior and nothing technical. Each of the five people that I interviewed with asked me the same generic questions. I assumed that after passing four rounds of interviews I would get the job; but alas, they told me that I was the next person in line if the other three in front of me did not accept their offers.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time where you had a group project and a conflict occurred. What was your role and how did you attempt to solve it?
      Why did you apply to this specific role?
      Why did you apply to Zurich Insurance?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Zurich North America (Chicago, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied on Linkedin and got an email for a phone interview. I thought it went well; asked why Zurch, why insurance, and basic behavioral questions. I am a college student so also asked me what I am involved with on campus.
    I was told I would hear back within 2-3 weeks, about a month passed and I still hadn't heard anything so I emailed the HR person I spoke to on the phone and no response. Obviously I didn't get to the second round but they didn't even have the decency to ever contact me to say they were going with other candidates. Very unprofessional.
