Actuary I Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Aetna in December 2011.
Applied online and had my resume submitted to HR by a friend.
Got a phone interview which went well and led to them flying me in for a 1 on 1.
The in person interview was a day at the office+dinner the night before. Most interviewers were nice but did not ask any challenging questions. (It was mainly a personality thing.)
At the end of the day, I don't think I would have ever been hired. I have not studied actuarial science and had only begun taking exams. Most of the people there studied actuarial science in college and have passed several exams. The emphasis of their hiring process is more on whether or not you can pass exams and have a good GPA than it is on testing your intelligence.
Overall, the people were nice and the culture was good (not relaxed like a newer company though). I think if you have a decent GPA, 2-3 exams passed, and can talk while making eye contact, you have a good shot here.
