    I have been working at Argo Group full-time

    Pros

    Exciting growth plans; strong leaders in several positions.

    Cons

    Constant change; very high turnover rates.

    Advice to Management

    Laser focus on fewer objectives; Argo doesn't have to be everything in the market place to be successful.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Argo Group (Richmond, VA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process involved six steps.
    1) Pre-Screening interview with the recruiter
    2) Interview with the hiring manager
    3) Take home coding project
    4) 1st Competency Interview 90 minutes
    5) 2nd Competency Interview 90 minutes
    6) In person interview - 4 hours

    Interview Questions

    • The final interview was 4 hours and 45 minutes. They will profile your personality
      and Psycho analyze you. They started with high school, then college and nearly every job I worked.
      Before the interview started, their comment was "Time to spill your guts."
      The first question I believe was, "What teachers were your favorite in high school and how did they influence your life?   1 Answer
