    Associate Underwriter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Zurich North America (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Contacted about a week after applying online for a basic phone screening with an internal HR recruiter. Mainly discussed my experience and the job description. Two weeks later met with the hiring manager discussed my experience and the job duties and a little more about the company. A week later had a phone interview with the Regional Manager again discussed my experience and the job description. They asked more behavioral questions focusing on working with a team. The next day I received a request to submit for a background check. They use a third party company and they contacted me 4x for info. Background check took 3 weeks to complete. Once the background was done HR said they would see how the manager wants to proceed. Got a message 3 weeks later from the recruiter saying they want to offer me the job but need internal approval. I followed up 2 weeks later and was told they still want to hire me but the hiring was put on hold for a few weeks and they will contact me at that time. Never heard from them again. This process took almost 4 months. Very unprofessional to lead candidates on like this and not even give a phone call or answer follow up emails not to mention this is a very drawn out and repetitive hiring process for an entry level position.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Zurich North America in May 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted from recruiter exactly 1 month after applying. Fairly simple phone interview. Scheduled in person interview afterward. Really awkward. Didn't ask any behavioral questions. Interviewers were 15 minutes late. It only lasted about 20 minutes; they seemed completely uninterested at "Nice to meet you"/ I was properly dressed so I'm not sure what the issue was.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Zurich North America.

    Interview

    I initially applied online, then contacted a recruiter whose number I found online. After introducing myself to the recruiter they said they would let me know if anything came up. 3 days later the recruiter called to set up an interview, that interview lasted around 15 minutes. A week after that the recruiter called back to schedule an interview with a hiring manager for the following week. That interview lasted about 30 minutes as well. I received an offer via phone call the next day. The entire process took just over 3 weeks.

    Things to note:
    -Mostly behavioral questions
    -Be prepared to talk about your resume
    -Do some research on the company
