    Average Interview

    Application

    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Zurich North America (Philadelphia, PA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Don't bother applying if you don't meet the GPA minimum. Applied and was scheduled for a phone interview, only to find out I wouldn't be considered for the job at all because I fell .08 short of the GPA requirement, even with a high major gpa and relevant work experience they refused to consider me for the position. Big waste of Time.
