    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at XL Catlin.

    Interview

    For an entry-level position: I applied online and received an email from HR within a week. I had a phone interview with the HR rep, who then called me back later that day to set up an on-site interview. The company paid for transportation. I interviewed with six people, all actuaries or actuarial analysts, as well as a short interview with someone in HR. Most of the actuaries were the people who would work directly with me on my team. Questions were mostly behavioral, no huge surprises. I got asked about my internship experience and also about what I knew about the company. I got a call the next day saying that they expected to extend an offer, and then I got my formal offer maybe a week or so after that. Overall, the process was very fast and efficient.
