    Customer Support Tech Spec Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Philadelphia, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted by a recruiter through an employment agency and was hired as a contractor, but advanced in my position, skill level and training and was hired as a full-time employee. Before I was hired as a consultant there was a relatively rigorous interview process including a one-on-one skills test, a personality test with two quality advocates, and finally meeting the manager of the team. I received a call within a week with the offer, got drug tested and began training.

    Interview Questions
    • I did not find any of the questions to be unexpected, they do ask technical questions just to see your skill level and ability to troubleshoot. I thought it was interesting because they had a computer set up to show them what you would do to troubleshoot customers.   View Answer

    AEDP Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Philadelphia, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Cigna in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. I was contacted about a month later for a phone interview. The phone interview was a combination of basic resume review and behavioral questions. Be prepared for the behavioral questions, they are a significant portion of the conversation. A few days later I was asked to come in for an on-site interview. The interview day included lunch with an "actuarial buddy" who also took me from interview to interview that day. Then I had an opening presentation with the head of the AEDP program. Then three interviews with actuaries at various levels in their career. The interviews were pretty standard, a mix of resume review and behavioral questions. With a couple technical questions thrown in. I got the sense early on that the key things they were looking for were leadership and initiative qualities and a willingness and ability to learn. A couple days later an offer was made. It was a very pleasant interview process.
