  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.
