I worked at Economical Insurance full-time
They re-imagined the entire insurance experience in Canada and make it as a digital channel convenient for end user.
Very complex business needs as they are migrating from legacy system to new cutting edge technology in big-data and guidwire
The whole qualifying process with Economical has been quite upsetting or even humiliating. There was the telephone interview, a lengthy personality assessment test, two different typing tests, one Q & A interview digging out how you dealt with difficult former co-worker(s), or difficult situation based on real experiences from previous insurance companies, etc.etc.. They required three references too.
I achieved my CIP designation and I have more than five (5) years of experience working as a Commercial Underwriting Assistant. They didn't even ask to see my CIP certificate. They turned me down!! I asked why, they only provided a blanket statement!!
