    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Buck Consultants (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Contact John O'Brien in HR to get more information. The only tip I could give is that we love balanced candidates, who can confidently answer technical questions while not losing a relaxed yet professional attitude.

    Negotiation

    Didn't have to negotiate, since the offer was pretty reasonable and beat other offers in terms of $ and location.

    Actuarial Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Buck Consultants (Atlanta, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    There were two interviewers. The first one had no idea how the internship program was ran and the last interviewer thought I was interviewing for a full-time position the whole time. I had to clarify at the end of the interview what position I was interviewing for since I noticed some of the questions were odd. This was a very awkward and dissapointing experience. Poorly managed company. A huge waste of time.

    Actuarial Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Buck was very straightforward and quick about their interview process. It started with a phone interview with a recruiter. A couple of days later, I received notice that they wanted to see me in the office for in-person interviews. As a prospective intern, I was brought in with about 10 other candidates and had a sit down lunch with current employees and then four back-to-back interviews. The task seemed daunting at first but the company was so welcoming and efficient that the process moved very well. About two weeks later, I got a call saying I had the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Having strong Excel skills and knowledge of the company really helps with the phone interview. The in person interviews involved "typical" difficult questions regarding your character, work ethic, etc.   Answer Question

    Actuarial Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kirksville, MO
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Buck Consultants (Kirksville, MO) in September 2013.

    Interview

    It was an intense procedure for me. The interviewer kept asking questions to test my understanding of actuarial terms. I honestly was not really ready for the that. The interviewer seems like little bit bored at me. They asked me whether I need a visa sponsorship or not. Since I am an international student, I said yes. I did not get the internship offer but it was worth to try.
