I applied online. I interviewed at Hiscox

Interview

The initial two stages of the interview were good. I had to do a series of tests for the first stage, which I passed, then went for a second interview with two HR personnel who were professional and encouraging. I was then put forward to attend an interview in the London office. This time I was interviewed by two Clowns - younger lads who were more interested in how they appeared rather than me. I got the feeling if I had been ten years younger, slimmer and blonde, I would have stood more of a chance. Whoever thought that these lads were capable of conducting a professional interview were sorely mistaken. I travelled home feeling completely despondent despite the fact that I had sailed through the earlier interview stages. It's put me off ever applying to work at Hiscox again.

Very tough process but well worth it. Multiple interviews and a Watson Glazer. The people they hire are very important and the interview process reflects that. It’s worth reviewing a Watson Glazer before attempting it.

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Hiscox (Atlanta, GA) in Apr 2021

Interview

I had a very positive experience with everyone I interviewed with at Hiscox. I had an initial HR screen and was then interviewed by would be marketing colleagues, and strategy and operations colleagues in addition to the hiring manager. In total, I spoke to 8 people in 5 rounds of interviews. Throughout the process everyone was responsive. I received some nice feedback along the way. After what I was told was the final interview, I heard nothing. Literally crickets. I followed up with both the HR contact and the hiring manager. I didn't receive a reply from the HR contact and the hiring manager told me I would receive an update shortly. That never happened. I discovered on LinkedIn that someone else was hired for the role. I totally understand that I may not have been the right candidate, however after investing weeks of my time and making it so far along in this process, the very least I expected was a phone call letting me know I wasn't moving forward.
