Why Underwritng?

Do you enjoy analyzing information and paying close attention to detail?

If so, then underwriting can be an excellent career choice. It is important for underwriters to demonstrate good judgment in order to make reliable and sound insurance decisions. Because much of the underwriter’s work involves dealing with agents and other insurance professionals, excellent communication and interpersonal skills are also essential.

Why Claims?

Do you enjoy investigating and verifying facts? Do you love to negotiate?

If so, then a career as a Claims Examiner might be for you. Claims Examiners verify and analyze data used in settling claims to ensure that claims are valid and covered under the policy provisions and settlements are made according to company practices and procedures.

    Claims Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at GNY Insurance Companies (New York, NY).


    Met with the head of HR and three executives. It seemed as if they just wanted to have a conversation and get to know you. They all asked pretty basic questions regarding my resume. There were no trick questions they just wanted to get a feel for who I am and how my background got me to the process of applying to be a claims trainee.
