Interviewed at Allstate

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.

Interview Question – Very Technical in the second round phone interview   Answer Question

Actuarial Analyst Interview

Actuarial Analyst
Northbrook, IL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Allstate in February 2009.

Interview Details – Interviewed internally for an actuarial analyst position. HR was a positive, professional experience. Actuaries with whom I interviewed with were successful actuaries with normal-people personality skills. Nothing but professionalism in the interview on both sides. Easy to build rapport with analysts. Preparation was intense, and there were five interviewers (including during lunch with two prospective peers). A very rigorous experience. I would recommend people who can get into Pricing to work there.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time that you uncovered an aberration or anomaly in data.   Answer Question
