    Commercial Underwriter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sheboygan, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Acuity Insurance (Sheboygan, WI) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and heard back from them within a week. The first interview was over the phone and the second was in person at their headquarters. They put me up in a hotel the night before and then on the day of my interview I got a tour of the company and had an interview with two managers from the Underwriting Department. I then received a response by the end of the week. The whole process was timely and efficiently managed.
