    Interview Details

    Buck was very straightforward and quick about their interview process. It started with a phone interview with a recruiter. A couple of days later, I received notice that they wanted to see me in the office for in-person interviews. As a prospective intern, I was brought in with about 10 other candidates and had a sit down lunch with current employees and then four back-to-back interviews. The task seemed daunting at first but the company was so welcoming and efficient that the process moved very well. About two weeks later, I got a call saying I had the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Having strong Excel skills and knowledge of the company really helps with the phone interview. The in person interviews involved "typical" difficult questions regarding your character, work ethic, etc.   Answer Question

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied 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 applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.
