    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at MassMutual in February 2008.

    Interview Details

    Very short and straight forward.

    Had to take a "personality test" that was primarily questions like "sometimes I feel hopeless" and asked if you agreed or disagreed. Yep.

    There were two interviews, one with the recruiter and one with the general agent. Traditional interview with simple questions.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at MassMutual in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Actuarial Student Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Enfield, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Enfield, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at MassMutual in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of four 1:1 interviews, all with actuaries from different departments. After the first two interviews, I had lunch with two Actuarial Students who recently became FSA's. The interviews on the whole were straight forward; one of the interviewers didn't even really ask me standard questions, we just ended up in a discussion about one of my volunteer experiences. The first 1:1 interview was 45 minutes, the other three were 30 minutes. A few business days later, someone from HR called me and told me that MassMutual would not pursue my application.
