    Very professional and concise. The recruiter was knowledgeable about the position and was prepared for the phone call. She contacted me quickly upon applying for the position and her assistant called to set up the interview. She called me on time with a list of relevant questions. She allowed me 30 minutes and that was time to also answer some of my questions. She gave me a timeline to expect the next steps in the process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Reinsurance Group of America in November 2012.

    Interview

    They have a list of standard questions. For everyone, they asked one or two questions about yourself as warming up. And then they went through the list of questions one by one. All of them are behavioral questions, eg. describe a most challenging time you came across, how did you deal with disagreements within a team, etc. The director of HR is always smiling and helped you come up with your stories, but the VP of the investment department was really poker face. I think quantitative skills are kind of important for the position, at least this time.
