    Actuarial Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Interview Details

    Two 30 minute phone interviews, first with HR and then an actuarial student. They were very enthusiastic and encouraging, asking normal behavioral questions.

    Final round interviews in the home office. Three 30 minute interviews, one each for company fit, technical and analytical skills, and business acumen. Be prepared for non-stop grilling in the technical interview. Have technical school or work projects that you can talk about extensively.

    Very positive experience overall.

    Human Resources Consulting Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at CNA.

    Interview Details

    Found the job through a search firm. They handled all the details and negotiation. CNA uses a firm for all the HR jobs because Talent Acquisition is a joke. Interviewed with a blend of HR and business people. The CHRO is an odd duck. She had a blank stare on her face the whole meeting. I had my doubts about the job after meeting her but my future boss told me not to worry about her. She's apparently always like that.

    Interview Questions
    • None really. They call their HR BPs "generalists" so it was a bit of a throwback to hear that term as they described the role.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I got WAY more than I expected. Six figure salary, 15% bonus, signing bonus and a guaranteed bonus for March.

    Data Management Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at CNA in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied through company website. Phone interview with recruiter was quick and easy consisting of mainly past experiences/ technology knowledge although I was asked to visit the office in LESS THAN 24 HRS, which was the only option presented to me. On-site interview with manager and supervisor was interesting. Consisted of vague/confusing behavioral questions. Also they were interested in coding/programming experience (the supervisor had a CS degree) which didn't parallel my skills.

    Senior Tax Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at CNA in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed separately in the Managers and VP's offices. Questions were relatively easy. There was no STAR method. They just went over your resume and you pretty much try to sell yourself. Somewhat uncomfortable.

    Actuarial Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at CNA in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was a standard interview - mainly behavioral. The interviewers were young and pretty much read the questions right off the page. I get the impression this company is looking for "young with exams.". If you don't fit that prototype, you may have a hard time getting a job. Come prepared to tell short stories about about many different situations ranging from teamwork to overcoming obstacles. Hope this helps.
