    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Allstate (Northbrook, IL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    There were three stages. First I had a phone "interview" with a computer system. It was very short and asked basic questions about background. Second I had an online, Skype-style interview that took about an hour. They asked some questions about charts, looking for whether you could spot data that didn't make sense, or try to analyze trends. Finally, I had a half-day in-person interview at the Northbrook headquarters. I met briefly in a casual way with three younger actuaries still working on exams, and had longer more formal meetings with three more senior employees. The interviews were not generally too difficult or scary, though I found some of the questions they asked to be so broad that I wasn't sure what kind of answers to give (e.g. "tell me about a time that things didn't go how you planned.")

    They asked behavioral questions and let you do a few problems, some of them are probability related. There were two teams that interviewed me. One handled more technical questions, and the other one more behavioral ones. Each part went about 30 minutes. For technical questions, the managers were very helpful and they might give some hints

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Allstate (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process is composed of two phases. A first interview which is comprised of a behavioral interview and short case study.

    The second phase is on-site half-day. I met with several employees for interviews. For the most part it felt relatively simple. Remember, you will not know who you are interviewing with beforehand and will not be able to google them in time. Be prepared.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Allstate (Northbrook, IL).

    Interview

    The process took about 2 months. There were 3 rounds: the first was with HR, second was a very technical interview aimed to assess your problem solving skills, and the third was at the home office with 3 different interviewers (a mix of managers and analysts). There was math test during one of the one-on-one interviews, and a business case you had to reason through. It was a very rigorous interviewing process.

    Interview

    There are three rounds of interviews in total. The first interview is with HR to discuss your general information in the resume. The second round is very technical and I consider it very hard. If you passed the second round, you will invite to the final round in their home office.
