    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Unitrin (Chicago, IL) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I got an e-mail from an HR lady asking if I was interested in the Product Analyst position. I was given an initial skills test. I passed the initial skills test and was given a more complex skills test. I interviewed during a time where they were transitioning HR people, so it was extremely unorganized. They did not get in contact with me, I had to get in touch with them. The new HR lady sent me an e-mail saying that I did not score high on the second skills test and was out of consideration.

    This company posted online. I applied online. I received a phone call and a phone interview was set up. I had 2 separate phone interviews. Then I had to take a SQL test online. I was told 2 others were inline for the position from within the company. I did not hear from them again so 1 month later I contacted them. I was still in consideration for the job. On June 1, they reposted this position online again like it was a new position. Still haven't been told that they want me or not.

    Actuarial Analyst I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Woodland Hills, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Unitrin (Woodland Hills, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    I got the interview by cold e-mailing the Senior VP of Actuarial with my resume. He then forwarded my information to HR who contacted me for a phone interview and subsequently scheduled an in-person interview soon after. Though I lived over 300 miles away, Unitrin did not provide any travel expense reimbursement, nor would they offer any relocation assistance with their offer.

    The phone interview with HR was pretty standard fair. Leading up the the live interview, my HR contact mentioned that the dress code was business casual. Of course, I still maintained business professional. But upon arriving at the office, I found that "business casual" encompasses t-shirts and shorts. The live interview consisted of a 3 person panel with the Director of Actuarial (he was wearing the t-shirt and shorts), a Senior Actuary, and an Actuarial Analyst. This was actually my first panel interview. But it went pretty well considering it was the Director that did most of the talking between the three in the panel. The panel interview lasted about 2 hours. The 1:1 interview with the Senior VP of Actuarial was much more brief. HR e-mailed me a link to a skills test a couple of days later. The skills test was pretty easy. Anything I didn't know how to do, I googled it.

    HR contacted me a little more than 2 weeks later on a Friday with an offer. The offer was much lower than what you'd expect for an entry level actuarial analyst (with 2.5 exams). Also, I was only given the weekend to consider the offer, which felt very rushed. When I asked for more time to make a decision as I had other pending interviews, it was not granted. So of course, given the current economy, I accepted the offer the following Monday. I did not bother to negotiate the offer as I didn't want to risk losing a job offer in this economy. The job offer came with no relocation assistance or signing bonus.

    Customer Service Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Scranton, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Unitrin (Scranton, PA) in April 2008.

    Interview

    First the HR Dept conducts a phone interview. Then if you qualify are brought in for a skills test and to meet with the department manger (of which you are applying to). If all goes well here, you are brought back again to interview with some supervisors of that department. If you are selected from there, they run a very thorough background check, and really do contact your past employers. It is best to be honest about everything when interviewing here.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions they ask are standard for a Customer Service position. Focus on handling of irate customers since that's their focus and what you will have to deal with primarily.   Answer Question
