    Senior Agile Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Jersey City, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed 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.

    Went for initial interview with HR. Was asked some general questions and was also required to write two sample essays about insurance topics. They gave a pencil and some paper and said go. Not too hard just hurt my hand writing so much. Got called back for actuarial interview and met with two groups of people. About 3 ppl per group. Nothing out of the ordinary about the interview. Standard questions.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ
    Application Details

    The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Insurance Services Office in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    they had 2 tests, math and english. the math was SAT style with a twist and the hardest part was that there was 40 min 40 questions. a minute per question! i was not ready for that kind of speed. and the questions where all twisty, i passed my actuarial fm/2 exam so i know my numbers, but i found the time constraint realy difficult on this one.
    the english test was basically they give you a paragraph describing some aspect of insurance and then they want you to write a short essay on it. after that there is a 30 question in 30 minutes vocabulary test which was BRUTAL. they asked for negative definitions and best fit kind of questions and most of the answers were kind of right. the whole thing took two hours and then you do a 30 min 1:1 interview. the interview went fine but they never called back or responded to my follow up emails.
    over all worst interview ever.
    heard its a nice place to work though. whatev.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Jersey City, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ
    Application Details

    The process took 3 months - interviewed at Insurance Services Office in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter sent an email in March to which I responded immediately. Two months later I was contacted for a phone screening. A week later I was called for an in-person interview. I spent 1 hour taking an SAT-like test, 30 minutes waiting for my actual interview to begin, 1.5 hours with an interview panel of 3 upper level employees from various departments, and an hour in a lunch interview with two more upper level employees. I was called a week later with the job offer.

    All in all, the interview process was very different than at any of the other companies I interviewed with. The interview panels made it possible for the employees to ask specific questions about the field rather than fill 20 minutes each discussing the basics of my resume. It was intimidating, but I think they got a better feel for their candidates that way.
