    E-Commerce Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Aviva (London, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Smooth but lengthy process. First simple phone interview directly with hiring manager followed by presentation preparation and actual face-to-face interview. Very unprofessional response from HR though throughout the process. As an email feedback after the final interview, wrong email template was sent over to me

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Aviva (London, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I got an email from my university senior, his friend who works in Aviva London as a director in the market and operational risk team. His team needs an intern/part-time position to conduct some market risk modelling project. I got interested, so I send my CV to the director. He replied immediately and we agreed to have an informal interview in a week later. On the next Thursday, we had a 1 hour chat about what I have done in the past that are relevant to the risk modelling. The next day I received the offer.

    Insurance Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norwich, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Aviva (Norwich, England (UK)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Thorough, but fair. Given chance to shine rather than being tricked/undermined. Strong competition at assessment centre. Around 600 applicants overall for 5 jobs so quite competitive! Similar process to most grad schemes; submit cv/application, pyschometric tests, phone interview, assessment centre. Tests were easier than some other schemes, although I am comparing them to finance/banking ones. Assessment day was a full day in Norwich (although has been London/York in the past), and had group exercise, presentation, interview, networking.

    Two stage and competency based. Not great follow up from HR. I had to chance to get my offer letter to resign in time to join when discussed. Could be improved.

    Actuarial Placement (Norwich) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norwich, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aviva (Norwich, England (UK)).

    Interview

    had 2 interviews: 1 telephone interview lasted 30 minutes, they said it was going to be competency based but in fact it was pretty technical, and ask questions regarding regulation and how policies are prices, how a profit is made and what are the key risks. 2nd was a strength based interview, about 20-25 questions ranging in complexity, it is important to think openly as these are not competency questions, questions include: - how do you develop an idea? -how do you turn an idea into a proposal

Process was spread over most of the day. presentation to senior managers was ok, 40mins to prepare a 5-10min presentation on the case study provided.

    Controls Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aviva (London, England (UK)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Everything was planned by a head hunter. I wasn't too sure whether this role would be suitable for me just by reading the job description but went in for the interview to find out. Interview started off by the senior interviewer detailing roles and responsibilities, which was really helpful to understand acronyms in the job description and get a feel for work at Aviva. Interview itself was quite relaxed, lots of opportunities to ask questions to the interviewers.
