  1. Inland Marine Underwriter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    A screening call with their recruiter/HR staff, then a call the following week from the hiring manager/direct report. Recruiter was pleasant, hiring manager was condescending. At first it seemed like they just had a dryer sense of humor. Not the case. Would be a difficult person to work under, which can make or break working for a company. They literally told me the candidate pool for the position hadn’t been great, and that I wasn’t the most ideal either but they might give me a call back...they, “Weren’t sure.” LOL. Then why are you calling me back for a 2nd interview. Are you kidding me? Completely unprofessional. They weren’t shy in basically saying they only care about making lots of money. Just a slimey vibe in my opinion. I haven’t gotten an official offer and would turn it down.

    Why RLI? Where do you want to be in 10 years? Things like that.
