Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cigna (Hartford, CT) in October 2014.

Interview

I applied through campus recruiting. First round interview went very well. Asked about normal behavioral questions and some technique questions. Describe xxx to a non-math major student. I got a phone call and was invited to second round interview. Due to my personal reason, it was a live video interview instead of a company visit. I interviewed with 3 persons, director of the program, a senior director, and an actuarial analyst. I think it went well but I did not get the offer

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cigna.

    Interview

    Kept me well communicated. There was an informal get together on the day before, which was great because we got to meet the recruiters. The interview process was great. The recruiter kept me at ease and was very friendly. A lot of standard behavioral questions were asked. A lot of questions about actuarial positions were asked too. There were also some random questions- estimate the number of quarters that could fit in the room, the number of leaves in a tree.

    The first interview was on-campus and was a general behavorioural interview based off my resume. The second round was on-site, with about 4 back to back interviews including a lunch interview with the program coordinator, full-time ASA and FSA actuaries. All interviews were mainly personality based, with emhpasis on being able to explain your specific projects in detail, demonstrate interest in the healthcare industry and the actuarial profession

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cigna in October 2009.

    Interview

    This was an on campus, first round interview for an entry level position. Prior to the interview candidates are asked to submit their resume and fill out an application on the company's website. The interview lasted half an hour. The questions fell into two main categories: behavioral and technical. The behavioral questions were fairly standard: Tell me about a time you worked in a team. What challenges did you experience? How did you deal with difficult team members? One that seemed completely inappropriate for an entry level position was: Tell me about a time when you instituted an innovative process at work. Another difficult question: Tell me about a time you explained something technical to a nontechnical person. The other style of questions were technical. For example: If you have a single stack of pennies as tall as the empire state building, how would you determine if those pennies would fit in this room (the room we were interviewing in)? The answer to these questions isn't as important as the thought process. I was also asked industry specific questions concerning health care. The interviewer was insufferably arrogant and condescending. I spoke to some of my peers regarding their experience and they felt the same way.
