    Director of Information Security Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at National Life Group.

    Interview Details

    After the normal exchange of emails, an interview was set up for 4:30 on a Thursday. I hurried off my work con call (which was running late) so I would be available for the recruiter's call. But noting. She stood me up. After 15 minutes of waiting, I sent her an email asking if she wanted to reschedule, only to get an "auto responder" saying that she was taking Friday off and apparently started her long weekend early by blowing off my interview.

    Extremely unprofessional HR experience and I would only recommend this company to candidates who enjoy being treated with no respect. I have to wonder if this experience reflects the company's overall attitude toward their employees.

    Actuarial Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at National Life Group in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    There was only one round of interview with two ladies from the actuarial department. Questions were quite basic and involved mostly behavior questions and going through my resume. It lasted around 30 mins and I had plenty of time to ask questions about their internship program. I prepared a lot of questions in advance and did thorough research on the company, so I guessed I managed to impress my interviewers.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at National Life Group.

    Interview Details

    I thought I was applying for a management position but instead it turned out to be a sales position. I was not looking for a sales position so I declined the offer. I wish they were more direct with what the job entails before the interview process. They seemed a little bit desperate to hire sales people.

    The interview was in the cafeteria, and was a group event. One or two managers were at each table to interview you, and if you had multiple interviews, you just changed tables. I liked the format, because it made it seem much more relaxed and social.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at National Life Group in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    Interview team was about 15 minutes late. I guess they returned late from lunch as my interview was at 1:00pm. I was glad that I had worn a suit.

    Be prepared for one off the wall question at the end of the interview-What one word would your husband use to describe you? --REALLY??
