    I have been working at Travelers full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have worked here almost two decades and time has moved quickly. The folks are the best asset, down to earth, friendly. I recently participated in the company's Innovation "InJam", where a team of us from diverse offices, backgrounds and lines of business worked together to create a product that our company could use to help us do our best work. Needless to say, working with our "technical folks", claims manager and corporate lawyer on the team, really helped us come together to create an idea with a vision, and we actually produced the product and presented it! Now Sr. Management will review it. Now that's novel, to ask employees to create and communicate with Sr. Mgmt on what we need and they are listening. It's a great experience to participate in the InJam but also to know that it's not about "drill down" but about participatory innovation and implementation of ideas that help us work better. Now that's real communication amongst all of us at the company.

    Cons

    The work is intense, and sometimes time-pressured so that it can be a challenge especially when dealing with more complex issues . We also have to keep abreast of the new evolving laws as it pertain to claims (in my line of work).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to "hear" what employees believe in when in comes to working smarter and continue to encourage all of us to work together.

    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hartford, CT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Travelers (Hartford, CT) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and had a phone screen within a week. The "talent acquisition rep" and I stayed in touch via email after I took an online test/screen but it was almost 4 weeks before I was contacted for an in-person interview. I interviewed 1:1 with 6 people in succession over 2 hours. I was ultimately offered the job about a week and a half later, and started about 2 weeks after that.

    Interview Questions

    • I did not have any difficult questions - it was more of a conversation than a test.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate but my offer was so amazing that I did not need to negotiate anything.
