    Interviewed with a HR recruiter, then was ask for an on site interviewed. It took 2 hours with 2 VPs and one consultant.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Travelers Companies (Buffalo, NY (US)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Very long process. First if your application online is approved, you will have a 20-30 minute phone interview, very basic and simple. If approved, 2 weeks later you come in for a 6 part, 3 1/2 hr general knowledge test involving simple typing, math, and English comprehension excercises. You must pass all parts of the test, and if you do, 2 weeks later you will have an interview lasting 45 minutes to an hour, this is the final step of the process

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Travelers Companies (North Houston, TX (US)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I only had a phone interview and it lasted approximately 20 minutes. She asked me to describe some of my previous experience and how it relates to this position. I was also asked if I was willing to travel and that during a disaster would I be prepared to be ready to leave within 24 hours. One question was why I am interested in this position and why I specifically chose Travelers.

    Interview

    I first met with a recruiter on campus where we did an interview that lasted approximately 45 minutes. She was very nice and the interview went well. I was asked back for a second interview at their office, which ended up not being the best experience. I was instructed to call the interviewer upon my arrival, however had his phone turned off and went straight to a voicemail saying he was out of town on Thursday (I was there on a Friday). I spent about 30 minutes finding his office, as they were going through reconstruction of the building so everyone changed offices. When I arrived he said he forgot that he had an interview today and didn't really apologize. The feeling I got from the company was very unprofessional and lazy. I didn't end up getting an offer, but from the experience I had with my potential boss it seemed to be a blessing in disguise.

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Travelers Companies in January 2015.

    Interview

    Had a 1st round interview which was mainly behavioral questions. After passing 1st round interview, was told to prepare a 10 minute presentation to present at the 2nd round interview about tech in the business world. 2nd round interview at their Hartford location included 5 interviews(1 was technical). The interviews were again largely behavioral questions, a lot of "tell me about a time..." style questions. Would recommend having at least ten STAR stories prepared. Technical interview was largely about how you would approach client issues in app development, and other case study questions. Everyone was very friendly and location was gorgeous. Get there early however, easy to miss the parking entrance for interviewees.

Standard interview questions (situational/behavioral stuff). Interview ended with me asking them questions. No offer, unfortunately, but overall experience was positive.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Travelers Companies (Wyomissing, PA (US)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Long, tedious unnecessary interview process. Applied December 12 and received a call about a week and a half later to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview consisted of going over general duties of the job and then asking basic questions.

    Passed that and had to come in to take a 3.5 hr assessment in their office, which consisted of data entry (how accurate you type information into the computer), listening to customers on the phone and reciting what information was exchanged, easy sections for math, reading, literacy, and reading a map. Test itself was easy, however, you were given very little time. None of us managed to finish the auto property/comprehension section on time.

    Anyway, passed that and received a call within the same day to schedule an in person interview next week. Sat down and interviewed with two department managers and first thing we did was go through my resume. Asked me what I liked and disliked about each job I had. I was then basically asked a question or two from each page from a packet. Interviewer said she wanted me to recite specific experiences for each question. It was very repetitive. Total of maybe 20-25 questions. Lasted about 40 mins. Received a letter in the mail a week later saying I didn't get the job.
