  1.  

    Interview

    First, there was a phone interview with an individual in HR. This was pretty straightforward with typical interview questions, including strengths and weaknesses. There were also behavioral questions, but nothing unexpected. This part of the hiring process seemingly judged your ability to interview. Second, there was an in-person interview in Schaumburg, which was mostly conversational. This part of the hiring process appeared to be judging whether you would be a good "fit."

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Zurich North America (Woodland Hills, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through their website, soon after received an email inviting me to do a phone interview. Both the recruiter and I set up a time to speak. On the day of, he never called me. I called his number and emailed him back but he decided to play the ignore game. Does this company post job openings to troll people? I understand it's an employer's market, but to disrespect potential employees is only disrespecting the company.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Zurich North America.

    Interview

    Submitted resume online. Received phone screen from HR. Very simple, and set it up for a next round phone interview with a statistician. This did not go pretty well. I updated with them right after I passed SOA/CAS exam C/4. This helped and I got a chance for on-site interview. There are 6 rounds of interview with senior employee and mangers. I gotta say the questions are fair, although they were a little difficult to me. And I learned a lot from the experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Most likely focused on my past projects and technical details, such as what kind of modeling did you use? What link function is it for that model?   Answer Question
