    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Towers Watson.

    Interview Details

    Shifted me around to 3 different recruiters before a phone interview was finally scheduled. Recruiter never called, rescheduled,then informed me the job was closed because the salaries of the qualified candidates applying for it were too high, so it was to be reposted at a lower level? Disaster. Time for self-reflection from a company that sells HR Comp and Onboarding software!

    Actuarial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Towers Watson in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the University Career website and got an on campus interview. It lasted 30 minutes and I was interviewed by one of the actuaries. The interview itself was not particularly difficult as he basically went through my resume and asked me questions about my experiences. They notified me in about 2 weeks that I was invited back for an on-site interview. It started with a lunch interview with a couple of the analysts and was rather informal. I then had some 1 on 1 interviews with some more senior actuaries and those were similar to the on campus one. It really depends on the person how the interview goes. My feel is they want to see if you fit in and if you're competent.

    Entry Level Actuarial Assistant Interview

    Interview Details

    Made first contact through a career fair. Was invited to attend an info-session later that evening. At the info session I asked if I could be squeezed in for an interview. My soon-to-be interviewer took a look at my resume (seemed to be checking for exams passed) and then said I could come in tomorrow morning for an interview. Interview was half-an-hour, as there were other interviews scheduled after mine. The interviewer was very friendly and most of the interview had to do with me walking her through my resume.

    I applied through LinkedIn, got response in a week. Was interviewed following week over the phone. It lasted for an hour.

The interview was held onsite. There were 3 rounds of interviews. One was with the Director of IT, the other with PM and the last one with Architect/TL. The architect asked question specific to the project. This was followed by some technical discussion about Sitecore architecture. This was then followed by code to debug and improve.
