    Application

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email from a recruiter about a week later.
    Did a phone interview, which was mostly HR screening questions and a few behavioral questions.
    Set up an interview at their offices. It was a handful of candidates and four interviewers. We rotated through the interviews and they were split up into four different themes. One of them was a technical interview where they wanted to know about my knowledge of the industry and my knowledge of computers.

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Zurich North America (Newark, NJ) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a phone call two days later requesting a phone interview. The phone interview was scheduled a day later. The phone call lasted about 15 minutes. Spoke with the recruiter in which I was drilled with questions after questions. It seemed robotic, so I know she was reading from a script. I was first asked screening questions like was eligible to work in the U.S., do I have proof to show that I can work and so forth. After that I was asked to go over my background. Then I was asked what did I know about zurich? why did I apply for the position? how do I organize myself - wanted detail examples. how do i stay focus daily? how did I ever deal with irate customer? How do I multitask? After all these questions, I was then briefly given a description of the position. I was told that my resume would be forwarded to the hiring manager and that I would receive a phone call or email if they wanted to schedule an in person interview.
