Senior Trial Attorney Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at AIG.

Interview Details – An AIG Talent Acquisition Consultant contacted me by email after I applied for the position online through AIG's website. She scheduled a telephone interview for the following week. The interview lasted approximately 37 minutes. During the telephone interview, the Talent Acquisition Consultant was well-informed about the position, its duties and responsibilities, and the timeline for hiring. The interview covered worked experience and reasons for seeking a new position generally, as well as with AIG specifically. Salary expectations were only generally discussed; however, the Talent Acquisition Consultant was well informed about the benefits package.

Interview Question – Overall, this was not a particularly challenging interview. The msot difficult question was probably asking for reasons behind a careed change.   Answer Question

Enterprise Infrastructure Architect - Virtualization and Storage Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Fort Worth, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AIG in August 2013.

Interview Details – I was approached by an external recruiter for this opportunity and had a phone interview setup approximately three days later.

The phone interview was with the Enterprise Architect (EA). We discussed my experience and he explained that the onsite technical interview would occur after the other staff returned from VMworld.

The recruiter scheduled the interview for a week later at their Datacenter/office in Fort Worth, TX.

I arrived on time expecting to meet with the EA and two other Architects, but was instead greeted by only the Database Architect. He was pleasant and lead me to the conference room which was currently occupied. We walked past cubicles that were double occupied with people working at makeshift desks outside of the cubicles. He explained that they were in the process of consolidating offices and were working on building out additional workspace.

We stood outside of the conference room waiting for the EA to arrive and for the room to be vacated. After about 10 minutes the occupants left the room. We waited another 5 minutes for the EA to arrive before deciding to start without him. I was asked to explain my background and after around 10 minutes I had explained my background and answered several of his questions. That's when the EA arrived (25 minutes late). He introduced himself, apologized and then started the interview over, asking for me to explain my background. Without skipping a beat I did. The EA interrupted several times to ask questions. Several of the questions had to do with Active Directory Domains and Forests in a large environment, even though I was being interviewed for a VMware Architect position. While I understand AD, I am not an expert and could not answer the questions. The EA explained that they were "easy" questions that anyone should know. He then asked a question specific to VMware (it pertained to VMware host configuration maximums), which I answered correctly, however he adamantly told me I was wrong. Not wanting to be rude, I did not challenge his response, however I did later verify that I was correct. After about 15 minutes the EA said he had to leave and left me with the Database Architect and the EA told him that he'd "leave it up to him", implying that the Database Architect would make the hiring decision.

A few minutes after the EA left the Network Architect arrived, introduced himself, apologized for being late (about 50 minutes), and he asked for me to explain my background. I did so happily and then the Network Architect provided a thorough history into the company over the last few years mostly explaining that the company was very disjointed and chaotic. He talked for about half an hour and then we all thanked each other for the time and the interview came to a close.

After the interview I spoke with the recruiter and explained that the opportunity wasn't something I wanted to pursue.

Overall: The EA and the interview process was unpolished and unprofessional.

Interview Question – I was asked technical questions that did not pertain to my technology vertical.   Answer Question

Summer Internship Interview

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at AIG.

Interview Details – Applied through campus career center. Was accepted for an on campus interview and then an on site "super day" interview. Everything was pretty basic - behavioral questions only. I think they really want to see if you would be a good fit for their office environment.
