Hmmm. Well, from the IT side of things and living in St.Paul, MN, it took me 5 months to go through there hiring process and it all depends on the level the role is responsible for. You WILL/SHOULD be working with your recruiter then entire process. Do not go around him/her. Heard bad stores of recruit's doing that and getting Null'd out of the system. I filled out for my role on travelers career site, took the assessment, and was called 3 weeks later by a Travelers Recruiter. Not a heavy interview, just another assessment of your skills and where you want to go. My resume was then sent to the hiring manager and it lingered for 3 months and was contacted by the recruiter they were interested. I was phone interviewed by that groups senior staff (the weeding out period would say the hardest part as they don't ask you how to generally mow the lawn, but how the lawn mower works, effort, etc). roughly 2 hours. Was given a positive experience and it was sent to my future boss. Sat for 3 weeks and was interviewed (1 hour). At this point, since the senior staff did the technical interview, my boss did the team, personality and VERY small tech questions. Passed. Was informed by the recruiter that I was going to be flown out to Hartford, CT and interview by the team. Now team means many things, but team mean't this (in phases). interview 1 - Senior Staff again, Interviews 2-5 - leadership staff (at my boss level, which was 4 interviews in all and 30-40 minutes each), interview 6 - Senior Leadership. Stayed in Hartford for 24 hours and was flown out. Was offered there after. Please note to all: DO NOT LIE ABOUT PAST ROLES/RESPONSIBILITES, TITLES or ANYTHING else in your application. They WILL background check everything and if there is one error or lie detected, your out. Knew a few who misrepresented their info and they caught and released.

I applied for the position via their website. I immediately received the assessment test. I took the test at 12am and passed It. The test at the end told me that based on my results someone would be contacting me. At 8am I received an email to schedule an phone interview. I replied with my availability and was then scheduled for an interview the same day at 2pm.

The assessment was extremely easy for me. There is a portion of the test that is 18 questions with 20 minutes to answer them. I got 16 out of the 18 answered within that timeframe. It’s gauging your ability to critically think under stress and in a short amount of time. Not everyone has that skill. It wasn’t hard at all but if It isn’t your strong suit, you may not pass the assessment.

(CLT location Auto blend trainee position) First when you submit your application you are required to take an assessment that took me about 2 hours. Your application will not be reviewed if you don't take the assessment Had a lot of riddles that you had to solve and behavioral type questions and math problems. I then received a call from a recruiter that asked a lot of behavioral questions- phone call took about an hour of straight behavioral questions (no lie) after the phone interview I has an in person face to face interview at the CLT office with about another hour of straight behavioral questions with 2 employees going back and forth. After that I job shadowed for 30 mins with an employee. After that they told me they will call me back for a final interview but that that they are still interviewing other candidates and would let me know!

Management is horrible, they like to micro manage and the workload is ridiculous.

The online assessment was beyond overkill. You are given 20 minutes to answer 18 riddle type questions. The time was nowhere near enough for me and I was only able to answer half of the questions and of course the unanswered questions are counted against you. I've passed similar online assessments for better and bigger companies. This assessment was a joke and I don't feel bad about not finishing it.

Very long process. Submitted application 30 days later I get an email to set up a phone interview. They told me they would move me forward to a in person interview. That was a month later, I was told in the interview I would be called in for a second interview but its been 2 weeks and haven't herd anything. Didn't have to take any assessment test but I do have a finance degree. Good luck to all

Very lengthy. At the time I worked for Travelers, they didn't hire just anyone into the sales position. There were a variety of computer based evaluations you performed during the application process (they were sent separately) and then, if that went well according to what they were looking for, you would have a phone interview and afterwards and in person interview. Over-all, it took 5-6 weeks before I was offered the job.
