Corporate Actuarial Intern Interview

Corporate Actuarial Intern
Southfield, MI

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ally Financial in March 2011.

Interview Details – Applied online, got called in for an interview three days later. The interview was with three groups of two people along with the person who was hiring for the position. They were all very nice and made me feel comfortable. It was laid back overall but they are definitely looking for someone who can contribute so they ask a lot of questions to get a feel for how effective you would be in the position.

Interview Question – No behavioral questions, nothing particularly difficult. Just a lot of expanding of my résumé. They also asked what I wanted them to take from my résumé.   View Answer

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Ally Financial in June 2012.

Interview Details – Interviewed with 3 people and lasted an hour long. Got asked many questions by only a single one of them though. 2 of them were cheery, one of them was the most condescending woman ever. She could not put a smile on her face. Asked mostly behavioral questions about what I would do in hypothetical situations. Some questions about skills with certain programs too.
