Actuarial Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee in Northbrook, IL
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Allstate (Northbrook, IL) in January 2013.

Interview

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

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Allstate (Northbrook, IL) in September 2010.

    Interview

    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.
