    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Insurance Services Office in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    An actuary I know that works there passed my resume to the appropriate people, and I was immediately contacted about openings that might fit what I am looking for. I was brought in for an interview within 3 days(on a Thursday). At that interview I met with an HR representative for about 45 minutes, after first completing two writing samples on insurance related topics.
    The following Monday I was contacted that a second interview was desired. The nest day I went back and met with two groups of people, each for about 45 minutes. Group one was the senior managers of the three areas with openings. Group two was two more junior managers.
    Now, 3 weeks later, I just was informed they are looking elsewhere.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Insurance Services Office in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initially contacted by a Specialist in Human Resource. I sent my resume, asked a few questions, and she arranged the next step. I was told to expect a call at 3:30 from the team. The interview would be with 3-4 PROJECT managers. Interview was via teleconference with two men that did not share their names, functions or levels within the organization.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked to tell about a typical day at my recent client engagement. The work at my recent client engagement did not correlate to the role I was interviewing for. Unfortunately he continued to focus on the role, instead of asking questions about my previous engagement which was similar to the role with his organization.

      Unexpected Questions: Please explain, "What is a Sprint Planning Meeting"? Please explain "Planning Poker".
