    Actuarial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at SEI Investments.

    Interview Details

    Applied and received a phone call from an HR representative the next day. Scheduled a phone interview which was later cancelled due to poor reception (I am certain it wasn't on my side). Resecheduled via email but one hour before the interview I got an email in which they asked me to reschedule because HR representative was sick. I wrote back with a list of times I was available. I never heard back from them until four weeks later. Finally, I had a phone interview. While the HR representative was nice and professional, she seemed unprepared and didn't facilitate the interview process.

    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at SEI Investments in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied on their website, and received a phone call one week later to set up a phone interview. This phone interview was followed by two on-site interviews. Phone interview was with an HR rep, and was pleasant, with basic questions, mostly behavioral. On-site interviews were with people within the position's respective department, and again, the process was very pleasant. Also was given a tour of the campus prior to the first interview.

    Mathematical/Actuarial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oaks, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days - interviewed at SEI Investments in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter called about 15 minutes late. She apologized and I said it was OK. Then she said that the position I had applied for had already been filled but she had another position that I could be interested in. I was annoyed that she had wasted my time by scheduling an interview for a position that had already been filled.
    This company is a joke!

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at SEI Investments.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter reached out to me and asked if I was interested in the position. I went through a phone interview and then an office interview with 3 supervisors. The recruiter asked what my salary expectations were before the office interview and then told me what the salary would be and asked if it was okay. The salary is way below the industry average, but the company culture is innovative and awesome.

    Internal Account Executive Advisor Network Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Oaks, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oaks, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at SEI Investments in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had 6 (yes six) interviews over the course of the day, 3 with junior associates, 2 with seniors, and then another junior after the director got pulled into a meeting. The interviews themselves were okay, but having six was just extremely repetitive. I found myself sharing the same background info ad nauseam and asking the same questions and getting the same answers. After the day I was told I'd hear back in a week or so. I never heard back. Nothing, despite numerous attempts contacting the recruiter. Very unprofessional process and organization.
