    Actuarial Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AXIS Capital Holdings (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The process was very smooth. HR did a great job with coordinating the interview. There was a phone screen, then I was invited to partake in three one-on-one interviews with their actuaries (who were really great people). A lot of behavioral questions for the most part, but there were a few tricky brain teasers.

    Human Resources Contractor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at AXIS Capital Holdings.

    Interview

    Initially had screening call which was brief with no difficult questions. Second, face interview with dept head who did not know how to interview and didn't ask me any skill or experience questions just wanted to get to know me as a person. Third round of interviews was with the team (4 people). Again, it felt like it was an interview for a sorority - as I was told in preparation we want to see if you can get along with them. The office space was nice - well maintained and newer furnishings, the people I met all appeared friendly on the surface but there was an undercurrent of feelings that I couldn't identify. Filled out employment application, they did background check (no credit check) and no other tests. Easy process, but the decision took 4 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Set my rate and they accepted. Normally I was told they do not negotiate. Take their offer or leave it! (Which is very inflexible and full of themselves.)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at AXIS Capital Holdings in March 2011.

    Interview

    The entire interview process went very well especially speaking to 3 individuals including a former boss of a former supervisor at one of my past workplaces. I assumed that I was in the running for the position but the end result was not in my favor as the company left me to hang & dry without a phone call, letter or simple e-mail stating that I was not selected for the job.
