    Easy Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at The Hartford.


    My internship advisor sent out my resume and I received a response within 3 days. Then the recruiter scheduled a phone interview with me that lasted about half an hour. She asked me a lot of situational questions and what I've been doing in school. From then, I received an email for an onsite interview. This lasted about 45 minutes and was held by two team members. They were both very interested in me and what kind of experience I had in the past (not necessarily relating to the position). They did not ask that many questions, we mostly talked back and forth about my past work experience and my school coursework. Not a difficult interview, very friendly and inviting atmosphere.
