    Average Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Argo Group (Jersey City, NJ) in May 2017.


    I was connected to an HR representative through a previous employer. The HR rep put me in contact with two employees at the office I would be working at. I spoke to each of those individuals over the phone for about thirty minutes. I heard back from the HR rep about two weeks after the interviews.
