Pros

My experience has been great so far at Burns & Wilcox. Management is understanding and approachable, the teammates are open to help and have a lot of knowledge, onboarding has been easy and training

Cons

I wouldn't consider this a con, but I would not suggest that a brand-new licensed insurance employee begin working at Burns. It is high paced work and could be overwhelming if you're not used to it.

  1. Assistant Underwriter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Burns & Wilcox (United States)

    Interview

    Phone screen by HR then an in-person interview with 5-6 people - although, the number of people involved was not disclosed prior to arrival. Felt like being interrogated by the cops instead of an interview. Hands down worst, most bizarre interview experience of my life, I ran out of that building.
