    Contact John O'Brien in HR to get more information. The only tip I could give is that we love balanced candidates, who can confidently answer technical questions while not losing a relaxed yet professional attitude.

    Negotiation Details
    Didn't have to negotiate, since the offer was pretty reasonable and beat other offers in terms of $ and location.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Buck Consultants in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I met them at a career fair at my college. I gave them my resume there then applied online. I received an email asking if I could come in to interview. The interview was a very long process- I met with 4 different groups of people- each group had 2 people each. They all asked me situational questions and about managing time and working in teams. They asked about my strengths and weaknesses. The last group of people took me out to lunch and we talked at lunch, this was not what I was expecting.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Buck Consultants in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Got an email from a recruiter regarding my application to set up a time for a phone interview. A few days later had a 45 minute phone interview which went well, and a few days after that got an email asking me to come in to the office for an interview.

    The interview consisted of a 20 minute conversation with the office manager, 5 or 6 30 minute interviews with some senior and junior actuaries, and a wrap up with the manager.

    I was told I'd hear back in about 2 weeks. A month went by with nothing, I emailed the recruiter, and he said I didn't get the offer.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Buck Consultants in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Very simple. They want to know that you are a worker, will show up on time and wont try to steal anything. Background check and drug test are more important than the interview.

    The process took 2 months - interviewed at Buck Consultants in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I met with two people in HR at a college internship fair. The first round was on campus. I was interviewed by two people from the company. It was an interesting interview in that they had no specific questions but rather let me guide the conversation. For the second round interview I was interviewed by three people one-on-one with fairly standard questions and then I had a lunch interview with two of the more recent employees.
