    Underwriting Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Zurich North America (New York, NY (US)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    A couple of days after applying on online, I received a phone call on a Monday from HR to arrange for a phone interview the following day. Basically went through my resume and asked questions about my last job. Also, asked about certain skill sets the job was looking for and how I used those skills at my last job. Interview lasted 20 minutes and at the end she said I would hear from them by the end of the week. A couple of days later I received an email to take a psychometric exam which I was not familiar with at all. Exactly a week after the phone interview, I received phone call from HR saying that the job was filled. She was very pleasant and I appreciated the courtesy call.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Zurich North America in November 2017.

    Interview

    It was an incredibly slow interview process, probably took about a month for the entire process.
    The managers I met with asked mostly standard and basic questions and some very random questions that had nothing to do with the role. Overall, they seemed very disinterested and as if reading from a script. Interviews with potential team members too and was surprised at some of their lack of knowledge. Overall, not very impressed and declined the offer.

    Claims Adjuster Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Addison, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Zurich North America (Addison, TX (US)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online then was contacted by phone and email by a recruiter to set up a brief phone interview. The interview was basic yet the recruiter didn’t seem enthusiastic at all just more concerned about moving you on. She then passed me along to someone who helped set up in-person interviews. The in-person interview was a panel interview of three managers over different departments that I may encounter. They each asked “tell me about a time” overused questions and questions about my past experiences as well as what my future career outlook was. Overall, the interview went well. The main person so to speak stated he was hoping there would be a lot of good competition and that he would have the recruiter follow up with me for feedback & decisions. 2 weeks later I reached out to the recruiter and the “recruiter assistant”, with ZERO response which is very UNPROFESSIONAL. Overall, glad I wasn’t chosen, because the lack of professionalism shown let me know the company was not a good fit.

    Underwriting Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    First I had an unscheduled phone interview on a Monday that lasted about 30 mins and consisted of typical interview questions. I was contacted two days later to set up a face to face interview which happened that Friday. It was very casual and seemed to go quite well. They told me I would hear back in a few days but it has been over seven business days and no word. Disappointed that I didn't even get a courtesy call especially since I sent a follow up email to both people I interviewed with thanking them for their time.

    Underwriter Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Zurich North America (Dallas, TX (US)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed with Zurich through a career fair. They seemed very interested in me and ended the interview with, "We look forward to having you on board."
    Very excitedly, I waited about two weeks and had a member of HR reach out to me to complete a Wonderlic assessment. It took three attempts to actually be sent the link, and after finally receiving it, I took it. I scored what I believed to be higher than average. Immediately after, I sent an email to inform them I had completed the assessment. No word back.
    Waited a couple weeks and emailed about the status, no answer.
    Would've been nice to be given a rejection and feedback, especially after being told what I was told in the interview.
    The culture sounded great, however!
