Actuarial Analyst Interview

Actuarial Analyst
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at PwC in November 2012.

Interview Details – On-campus interview followed by an on-site interview in Chicago, IL. The HR contact told me she would call me with in two weeks. I e-mailed her 5 times and called their office trying to contact them after the two weeks was up. The got back to me 4 weeks later. Thanks PwC.
Had a panel of people we could talk to about full time work. No actuaries, all consultants. We were under the Tax people for some reason, apparently, we did not get our own department or area.

Interview Question – The basic behavior based questions.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The HR contact took look to contact me so I took a different offer.
