    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Allianz in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very smooth. The recruiters kept you in the loop the entire time. It was mostly straight forward questions and the whole process went really fast. If you are non-local they can do the entire process remotely which is nice.

    Interview Details

    I was called to schedule a phone interview a couple weeks after applying online. The interview was scheduled for a couple days later with someone from the HR department. They mostly asked the usual strengths/weaknesses questions, but also asked me to go into detail about past projects I had worked on. I got an email shortly afterward saying I was no longer under consideration.

    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Allianz in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was quick and comprehensive. I had 6 interviews over the course of two days. Originally, I had all 6 scheduled on a single day, but I had to shuffle things around and was pleased with the willingness to accommodate me. The interviews were brief (30 min each), but they covered all the areas in a way that I felt like I was able to discuss how I would add value to the role and also perform my discovery to ensure the role was the right fit for me.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time you had to push back on a senior leader.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    In the initial stages of the interviewing process, I had informed the recruiter what salary would interest me in coming to the company. The offer met my initial request. I was not initially offered a signing bonus, however I was able to negotiate that prior to accepting the offer.

    Derivatives Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Allianz in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    After the phone interview, I was very excited about this job prospect before the in person interview. They brought me in a few days after the phone interview to meet with 11 different people. There was a simple oral skills test and discussion with the group I was applying with and then a series of short interviews with a lot of people who didn't seem to understand why they were talking to me or what they should be discussing. More than a few of the sessions degenerated into discussions of why anyone would want to work at Allianz. Very strange to hear an interviewer try to talk you out of the job.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at Allianz in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    I had worked for this company for 3 months as a temp. I had one interview with a mid level manager who after reviewing my file asked a few nominal questions and then I was offered the position in writing. After that process there was a one day session in which all expectations and conditions of employment were discussed. At the end of this session I signed my contract and began employment with Allianz-Life.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Munich (Germany)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Munich (Germany)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Allianz in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    First interview was over the phone with HR and the hiring manager. It was quite confusing and I was convinced I would not be called again. I was, but like 2 months later (so the other candidates probably said no). Second round of interviews were done on one day, three different people and one of them was good. My hiring manager was more interested in talking about herself than interviewing me and letting me ask questions.

    Interview Questions
    • No technical questions, more listening on the manager's tales of how good he was.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Drawn out, little wiggle room. Managed to get the personal bonus doubled, that's all.
