    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at MassMutual (Fort Worth, TX) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Applied online and interviewed for a few minutes with a representative. That same representative asked me to come in to MassMutual's office here locally and talk further. After everything was complete, I was asked to think about the position, look over the material presented, and if I thought it would be a good fit I could continue on with the hiring process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at MassMutual in October 2011.

    Interview

    Interview consisted of four 1 on 1 interviews with actuaries and a lunch with two students in the program. Employees were very friendly and were down to earth people. The student program also seemed to be well organized. Questions on the interview were pretty standard and nothing too technical was asked.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to be an actuary? Are you fully committed to taking all exams?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Mainly because of location in Springfield, MA. If the program had been closer to where I lived, I might have taken it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at MassMutual in October 2011.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview. Questons they asked were why sales and why mass mutual. They also ask you to rank yourself from 1-10 in competitiveness. Seems like they use the same questions for all the interviews because allthe questions they asked, I've already seen on glassdoor. I think not having sales experience probably hurt me the most
