Underwriter Interview

Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Berkshire Hathaway Homestate Companies in January 2011.

Interview Details

Asked a lot of logic question such as: What rate would you charge for a cabin at the bottom of a mountain when there is a 70% chance of a avalanche occurring overnight. Asked questions about probability, underwriting skills, financial knowledge, knowledge of the industry. Lasted about 2 hours and was somewhat intimidating. They expected you know know a lot about the ideals of Warren Buffet and his investing strategy. It seemed like the office setting would be very competitive and cutthroat. Overall did not catch a good vibe from the interview. The interviewer was somewhat pompous and direct. Not the easiest interview that I have ever had but as long as you can do logic and probabilities on the fly, then you should be good.
