The in person interview consisted of a math test, microsoft word test, and microsoft excel test. All three were very easy. Then the in person interview was with two representatives, supervisors to the job. Very typical and easy questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Milliman in May 2015.

    Interview

    Had he phone interview with a Milliman employee. The interview lasted about 15 minutes and was very general and basic. It was for the healthcare department so there was one or two questions related to that specifically. The questions were mostly why do you want this position, why Milliman, etc. Nothing was overly tricky since it was only a phone interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Milliman.

    Interview

    Phone screen was typical questions (strengths, weaknesses, career goals, specific job experiences). Standard consulting interview. Behavioral interviews (plenty of "Tell me about a time when..." questions). Case study. Day long project. This is as normal of an interview process as exists. The whole process was pretty quick and straightforward, only took a few weeks between submitting resume and receiving an offer.

    Compliance Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Milliman (Tampa, FL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    At first glance, it seems like a great, refreshing, personal and "old school" idea to have candidates completely bypass the dreaded electronic application and resume submission abyss, by making direct contact. However, considering the company isn't public, this can leave plenty of room for bias and unfair hiring practices--almost like a country club admissions process.

    Ultimately, after what seemed like a potential opportunity (for which I am very qualified), the "gatekeeper" went from being extremely positive, responsive and engaged, to acting like I didn't exist. Like I Never happened. Odd and disenchanting to say the least.

    I rarely get discouraged, as there are always other opportunities to explore, but with an un-monitored and seemingly arbitrary hiring process like theirs, it's not worth my dignity or talent to keep pushing the issue. I'm a believer in spotting "signs" of long-term trouble.

    Hint: Check out the profile for the local office of interest to make sure you "fit in" before applying.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Milliman (Indianapolis, IN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. He submitted my resume and I was contacted to do a Montage video interview in which you post video replies to 10 common interview questions. I was called in for an in-person interview 2 weeks later. The in-person interview was very laid back. I had ample opportunity to ask questions about the position, the healthcare consulting field and Milliman. I met with 5 different actuaries over a 4 hour period and most asked about my programming experience. This was perhaps the best interview that I have ever been to. I met with two Equity Principals and they focused on informing me of the culture and the ethics of the company and their own personal views on traits the candidate should have. It was really informative.
    I went away feeling great about the interview and I had an offer that night.

    Actuarial Student Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Milliman (Denver, CO) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The following information pertains to the Denver Health Practice ONLY. Interviews at other Milliman practices may be completely different.

    After sending a cover letter and resume, I was asked to fill out a work history form. This form served as a sort of pre-interview; and contained behavioral questions as well as a survey about my values and priorities. Then came a brief phone screening, followed by an intense 3-day round of interviews. There were long pauses in between each step (over a month each).

    The on-site interview process was much more rigorous than I was expecting; I think I was in one-on-one interviews for a total of 12-15 hours. They asked every possible question you might think of, so prepare, prepare, prepare.

    I was also asked to give an hour-long presentation on a healthcare topic, which I was purposefully not warned about beforehand. This was meant to simulate a real-life pressure situation which an actuarial consultant might face.

    The whole process was very taxing and stressful, but I gather that that's the name of the game in actuarial consulting.

    Interview Questions

    • There's no way I could prepare you adequately here. They asked me hundreds of questions. None were that unusual, but you've got to be ready for every question in the book.   Answer Question
