    Claims Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Zurich North America (Schaumburg, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and then went through a phone screening. They kept changing the recruiter I was working with, which was very confusing because more than one person was trying to schedule an in person interview with me. The in person interview was much more relaxed and insightful in terms of what to expect from the company and position than the panel interview.
