    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 months - interviewed at CSAA Insurance Group in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Fairly rigorous interview process with several steps involved. Process was relatively slow but appropriately methodical. I sensed a desire to make sure it was a good fit for both the Company and myself, which made a lot of sense and was shared by me too. At the end of the process, I felt that it was a solid company that shared my values and genuinely wanted to do well and do right.

    Actuarial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Walnut Creek, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Walnut Creek, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at CSAA Insurance Group.

    Interview Details

    1. The recruiter contacted me for a phone screen interview. She asked general clarification questions about my resume and set up a phone interview for me at the end of the call. Call lasted 15-20 minutes.

    2. Phone interview occurred a few days later with the manager. Asked about my experience at my previous job and about skills I listed on my resume. Asked about my exam progress. Gave me the chance to ask questions. Call lasted 30 minutes. Received a call from the recruiter after less than a couple days saying they would like to set up an onsite interview for me the next week.

    3. On site interview consisted of about 4-5 separate 30 minutes interviews with other actuaries from different teams and managerial positions. They mostly asked questions about my past experiences and questions to get me to broadly justify the skills that I had listed and statements that I had made about my experiences. After the interviews, I went to lunch with another actuary in the department and went home.

    4. I did not hear back for several days... it felt like a very long time, and I gave up hope.

    NOTE: Everybody I interviewed with was great. One person asked questions quickly and did not let me finish my whole answers, but was probably just trying to be an aggressive style interviewer. He seemed like a nice guy when I asked him questions at the end. Overall, I was very impressed by the people I interviewed with at AAA, especially compared to other interviews I have been a part of. I felt like they were honest, straight-forward nice people.

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at CSAA Insurance Group in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    The recruiters are clueless and couldn't keep appointments. The hiring Manager seemed like he was more interested in his lunch than finishing the interview.

    Reasons for Declining

    The people I worked with were not professional and it just did not seem like a place that I should work.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at CSAA Insurance Group in December 2010.

    Interviewed with the recruiter for the actuarial group. Asked me a few general questions, as well as a couple of brain-teasers.
    Some of the general questions were:
    1- Why do you want to become an actuary.
    2- What do you think the day to do day job of an actuary looks like.

    etc.

    A couple of days later got a "thanks but no thanks" email from "no-reply@no-reply"

    Interview Details

    i worked for this company for three and a half years before accepting a full time posiiton. i thought i knew what they were about, but as it turns out, i didn't know the depths of evil within their soul. they are nepotistic and let the highest level people pass by the scrutinty they wield on their underling sweat shop workers. better to be a boss at this company and be incompetent than make a small mistake as a worker bee.
