    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Hartford (Hartford, CT (US)) in September-2009.

    Interview

    Initial interview was with Personnel. They asked typical questions regarding past experience, education, why I wanted the job, why I would be good for it. The next series of interviews were with 3 different attorneys. They were all very relaxed and asked typical interview questions, nothing unusual. The atmosphere was very relaxed, the department and staff were very supportive and close knit. It was definitely a team environment.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a couple of questions relating to underwriting of policies, which I was unfamiliar with at the time.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate, accepted the offer.
