    I interviewed online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Travelers Companies.

    Went to a career fair for resume drop and initial screening. Passed my first interview at career fair and got an on-site offer three weeks later. The on-site interview lasted 6 hours including a lunch meeting. All one-on-one meetins with manager on different teams within the group. Recieved the verbal offer very shortly.

    Interview Questions

      Most unexpected question was "what was the biggest risk you have taken?"
      Most difficult questions were to "plan and state all the necessary steps to run a complete project?"
      and "What do you think is the most difficult and time-consuming phase in a project and how did you overcome obstacles?"

    Worker's Compensation Claim Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Saint Paul, MN (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Saint Paul, MN (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Travelers Companies in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I received an email for an interview within a week of applying. I was brought into an empty office and asked a series of standard questions about working in a fast-paced environment (highly emphasized), handling disappointed customers (since you will be denying some claims), and other generic questions (greatest weakness, etc.). The interview was fantastic, but it took them a few weeks to get back to me with their offer. By the time I was offered the position, I had already reached a deadline to accept a promotion within my current company.

    Interview Questions
    • Very typical questions. Most difficult was probably "Give an example of a time you were disciplined at work" which I interpreted as "greatest weakness"   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I was offered a promotion at my current job before I heard back from Traveler's.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Travelers Companies in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact with recruiters was through a university career fair. On-site interviews were conducted the next day with two recruiters, and around 12 people out of maybe 80-100 who screened at the career fair were selected for the morning-after on site interviews. After that, perhaps 3-4 of the initial 12 were invited to Hartford for final round interviews. Mostly behavioral questions, but included a couple of interesting situational questions as well. A great experience for my first ever interview!

    IT Risk Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Travelers Companies.

    Interview Details

    I was called by the HR Recruiter, had an initial 30 minute screen. Recruiter was heavily focused on my salary requirements which I consistently reassured I was negotiable. I then had a 30 min conversation with hiring manager, who was very open and informative. Sounded like he was trying to hire and groom a person so he could retire soon. I then went for in person interviews. All went well - very skill focused rather than behavioral, except when interviewed by HR representative. She was very open and communicated the company had a lot of professional development opportunities. The VP interview was different. I felt like this person was threatened by my experience. Tried to give me a pressure interview which I answered calmly and thoroughly. All and all, the interviews were fine except for the last one where I don't believe I would have done well working for the VP which I think would've happened if the hiring manager retired. The company is old school - old technology which was unsettling. Looks like people have been there for 20+yrs on average. Could be good, could be bad. In the end, the HR rep called and told me it was between me and another candidate and they decided not to choose either but to re-post the position...makes you wonder how decisions are made within the company.

    Interview Questions
    • All skills based related to my previous experience. 'Tell me about yourself" is always the opening question...   Answer Question
