- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Pacific Life in October 2014.Interview Details
I applied online and was contacted for an interview about two weeks later. The first interview was very easy. Just stuff like "why do you want to be an actuary", "do you have experience with excel, C++, etc.". Then they tell you about the job and you'll hear from them in about a week or two if you get past the first one. The second one is ten questions long and you'll be interviewed by a panel of about 10 actuaries along with 5 or so other candidates. They mainly ask basic behavioral questions, but at the end they open it up to the actuaries to ask any additional questions they want (don't worry they'll just ask any additional questions they have about your answers). Then a little over a week later they called me and told me I got the job and after they run a background check on you they'll send out a packet of paperwork to fill out.Interview Questions
