    Interview Details

    There are three rounds of interviews in total. The first interview is with HR to discuss your general information in the resume. The second round is very technical and I consider it very hard. If you passed the second round, you will invite to the final round in their home office.

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Allstate in January 2013.

    I submitted an online application in late October, and heard back from Allstate in early December. There was first a phone interview in December, after which some candidates were eliminated. There was then an on-site interview in January, where I had interviews with two Fellows. The questions in both the phone and on-site intervews were primarily quantitative and analytical, focusing on crititcal thinking skills. I heard back 2 weeks later, upon which I received an offer.

    Application Details

    The process took 5 days - interviewed at Allstate in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had met with an HR person at a career fair. I submit my resume through an email. There were 5 or 6 of us being interviewed on the day they were at campus. There was initially one interview, and then if they like me, they would set up a time later.

    As far as the interview was concerned: The wait wasn't too bad. We talked about my experiences of teamwork, how I handled people who I disagreed with at other jobs, and how I decided I wanted to be an Actuary. The interviewer was polite. The only thing that was a little different was the test I was given. I was given a problem and asked to work through it out loud. It was a brain teaser. They wanted to see how I think. It was actually very interesting, and that was the first time I had an interview of that kind.

    Overall it was a decent interview. Just know yourself and what you want out of the internship when you interview.

    Interview Questions
    • You have a balance scale. You are given 9 balls. Eight of those balls all weigh the same and one wieghs more. You can use the balance scale only twice. Find the ball that wieghs more.   View Answer
