HUB International – Why Work For Us?


HUB International was formed with the merger of 11 privately held Canadian insurance brokerages in 1998. Today, we are ranked among the largest insurance brokers worldwide.

The entrepreneurial spirit that formed HUB is evident today in the way we do business. Our company is organized around large regional “hubs” with over 330 satellite offices. Our structure enables us to be proactive in addressing local market needs while centrally managing the growth of our business with consistent standards.

While global, our strength lies in our commitment to the communities we live and do business in. We are here to help you evaluate your risks and develop solutions that are tailored to your needs.

    I have been working at HUB International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company support, room for growth, and coworkers. HUB wants everyone to succeed both personally and at a team level.

    Cons

    None that I can find since I have been there. Coworkers with more company experience have indicated little to none as well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. The consideration that is taken from employee suggestions is appreciated.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at HUB International.

    Interview

    One in person and 3 or 4 telephone interviews. Ultimately discovered the people interviewing were not the decision makers for hiring, despite having titles which imply authority. I never spoke with the decision maker. We discussed one position in at least 4 interviews. I disclosed my current revenue numbers and number of accounts. We agreed on a compensation plan. In the next call the interviewers stated the company wasn't actually hiring for the position I applied for and they hoped I'd consider a similar position, which was a role that has never interested me. When I stated that, the interviewer stated the company wouldn't make an offer. All interactions were pleasant and professional but in the end a waste of time. Appears office managers and regional managers do not actually have authority over their offices, which I'm happy to have realized on the front end.
