I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at The Hartford in November 2012.
Interview Details Received a call from HO HR to complete an online application and a "Profile Assessment." The Assessment was rather straight forward, not as bad as others I have taken. I a few weeks I was contacted again by HR to interview with what would be my manager if hired. I drove 2.5 hours to meet for lunch. We had a nice interview, allowing me to also ask questions. I inquired as to the next step and was told they had other candidates, and it would be 3-4 weeks before I was contacted again. I waited 4 weeks and sent an email to the manager. He called me back and said that his boss in Chicago would like to interview me as the next step. I then received another call from the recruiter, she inquired if I was still interested in the position, since the time since the initial interview was quit long, indicating that the position was placed on "hold." I agreed to meet with the region manager, I drove another 6 hours, paid $80.00 in fuel, $37.00 for parking, and was never offered a drink of water. The interview as "behavior" based, lasted 2.0 Hr. My final question to the manager was "what is the next step in the process?" He indicated the same as the other manager. AsI was leaving the interview, the Region Manager told me " the next step is retirment," which floored me, since I am a seasoned professional. II waited another 4 weeks, sent a note to the original manager, he indicated a decision has not been made, and would not for some time after the holidays. 5 hrs after I received his email, i received a call from the HO HR person, informing me that they selected another individual, with more experience in "sprinkler hydraulics" then I. I was floored, we never discussed this subject matter in depth. After the holidays, I find The Hartford has posted the same position on Linkedin!
