    Rigorous process. Total of 6-8 week process. 1st interview with the recruiter then the final round. The final round is an entire day of interviews by four different VP's from the company.

    Risk Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I went through a phone screen with HR, then had a phone interview with the hiring manager the next day. I was told by the hiring manager that he would like me to come in for an in-person interview and I was in the process of scheduling that interview with HR. Then I get an email saying I'm no longer being considered for the position as "the hiring manager had decided to pursue other candidates whose qualifications more closely match this position" when I have ALL of the preferred qualifications on the job description and I'm a veteran.

    7.6% of the US population are veterans and only 2% of the employees at Zurich are veterans. Think about that. I'm not saying I'm entitled to the position, but don't advertise that you care about veterans when you don't back it up.

    Underwriter Account Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zurich North America (Chicago, IL (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Horrible, I wouldn't work for this company because their HR Department is horrible. Don't tell the potential client to wait on an email from your third party company for the next step in the recruitment process, when you have no intentions of hiring the party. I watched for that email since the beginning of October and just got a email that I didn't get the position. I didn't get the second interview when she stated I would. How unprofessional!!!!!!

    Claims Handling Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Woodstock, GA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zurich North America (Woodstock, GA (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process was kind of intense but smooth. I was contacted to have a phone interview with a recruiter. She asked behavioral questions, nothing out of the ordinary. From there I was selected to move on to the face to face interview. During the interview me and about 3 other candidates first had lunch and then you break up and interview with different claims managers for about an hour. The interviews are based on different things. Technical, Leadership, Project Management, and Conflict Resolution. They want to see how you interact with others so try and make small conversation with the other candidates and the managers during the lunch. I was contacted the next day and told I would be offered the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Zurich North America (Independence, OH (US)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    I really enjoyed the interviewing process at Zurich. The recruiter was extremely communicative. It was easy to schedule my interviews with different individuals in the department. Though I did not receive an offer the recruiter and the regional manager clearly explained the decision. I wish all companies treated prospective employees with such care.
