    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Applied Underwriters in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied and 2 weeks later was called by a recruiter that said they like to bring candidates in and try to match them to a position. Went in and took the Wonderlic test and made a 34. That is in the top 5%. Also took a personality assessment, got the results back instantly which generally said I was a caring person with an analytical and artistic streak. The recruiter took me into the office and praised my performance on the Wonderlic, but said the personality test came back inconclusive. Due to this the interview would cease immediately. He said I could try again in 6 months, but I will not be back.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Applied Underwriters.

    Interview

    I was approached by a recruiter on linked in and had face-to-face preliminary interview (30 min) on campus. After this, they had me take two aptitude tests (wonderlic and CPAB). After passing this, I was scheduled for a programming test. They gave me a day or so to solve an insurance-related problem using visual fox pro. At this point, I had never worked in depth with a database or even heard of visual fox pro. I managed to get something that did the calculations, but it didn't pass some of the bench marks.

    Interview

    The recruiter reached out to me on Linkedin and I had one phone interview with him.

    After the phone interview, I was scheduled for a written test onsite. The written test was based on two tests, one was based on a generalized test and the other one was more technical. However, with my visa restrictions they could not go ahead with an onsite interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Applied Underwriters (Omaha, NE) in August 2015.

    Interview

    When I went in, I took a personality test and then had my interview. I felt at home at once. The best part is that the recruiter found my resume online and called me in to apply. I was impressed that this company looks at experience first and age second. As someone past 50 and was looking for a new position, this aspect made the decision to work here very easy.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Applied Underwriters (Foster City, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I met the initial recruiter at my schools career fair. I was in contact with him but he left, I then talked to another recruiter and he also left. It seems like they had a revolving door on recruiters. i finally got in contact with them at our next career fair and they invited me to interview.

    I was brought into the office on an off day where we were given a battery of exams. I took the Wonderlic, CPAB (computer programming aptitude battery test), then I took a basic mathematics exams and advanced mathematics exam (which they have now discontinued). The ideas in the basic and advanced mathematics exam can be gleaned from an undergraduate number theory course, although the advanced exam was quite challenging.

    After 4 hours of exams, I was exhausted. The interviewer wanted to continue with an excel exam but he allowed me to go home.

    I got a call back a few months later and they had me follow up with a project, which was designed to get an idea of my programming experience, problem solving and general econometrics knowledge. I was then brought back into the office to give a presentation.

    Interview Questions

    • We had a follow up after the testing battery that were generic questions.

      I remember the interviewer asked us a question that could be solved with conditional probabilities.   Answer Question
