Catastrophe Risk Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Aon (Minneapolis, MN).

Interview

Got an initial e-mail to request a phone interview. The phone interview was short, asked a few basic questions about resume but was mostly to describe the company and position. The next interview was at the office. It was 5 rounds (about a half hour each) with 2 people. I was put in a room with 4 other people who were also interviewing for the same position so it was a little weird, but the interviews were pretty straightforward with basic behavioral questions.

Interview Questions

  • Lots of behavioral questions.
    Tell me about yourself, strengths, weaknesses, etc.
    Fairly decent amount of group questions, such as a time when your group worked well together, when you didn't work well together, when some didn't put as much effort in, etc.
    Talk about a time when you bargained something, what would you have done differently?
    Be prepared to talk through your resume as well.
    There were no real technical questions besides asking what familiarity I had with some Microsoft Office programs and statistic programs.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Aon (Chicago, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Completed a virtual interview through HireVue and heard back 2 weeks later that I was invited to the super day in Chicago. 5 30-minute interviews with 1:1 and 2:1 scenarios. 3 behavioral, one problem solving/critical thinking and a technical/data interview and then they took us out to lunch. All interviewers were associate directors or directors and have been with the company for 10+ years. Still waiting on a decision. Good experience even though I believe I could have answered the problem solving questions more eloquently.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your personal brand?
      Tell us about a time where you had to change the way you approached a project/presentation.
      What data would you collect from a client to best assess their risks?

      How would you explain a data process to an audience with no experience?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Aon (Chicago, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    My interview consisted of three separate phone interviews. There was an initial screen, one very long one with multiple people, and one follow up. All were pretty standard with questions about strengths, weaknesses, data quality, some basic technical skills questions. It's important to be technical but still be able to talk to people and convey some warmth since it's a client focused role.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about components of catastrophe models and data quality.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aon (Bloomington, MN) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I found the position on my college website and also spoke with recrutiers at a career fair. They sent me an e-mail to confirm the interview and scheduled it a month ahead of time. The employees were really friendly but be prepared to be there for almost 4 hours. For me, there were 3 other people interviewing at the same time but do not worry- its not a group interview. What happens is that you have five different interview, each one with 2 or 3 people asking you questions. The questions were almost all behavioral which was pretty difficult.
