    Actuarial Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Esurance (San Francisco, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was with a HR representative, HR was really nice and explained the position in more detail. A few days later I had a phone interview with the hiring manager, nothing out of the ordinary, questions were more related to my past actuarial experience. Three weeks later I was invited to a skype interview with two team members (I lived in the east coast at that time). Questions were pretty straightforward and all pertained to my specific experience, but more in depth. Finally two weeks later I had an onsite interview in San Francisco (travel expense paid for) with 4 members. I didn't hear back from them until after 3 weeks (I did follow up multiple times in between). HR was very helpful.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Esurance (San Francisco, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and within 2 days received an email to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview consisted on several 5 Star questions concerning how to deal with difficult staff and what your weaknesses are as a manager. Then asked straight out what salary you want, not a range but an actual amount. The interview took about 25 minutes. Never once discussed the job responsiblities.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Esurance (San Francisco, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and the recruiter got back with me within a week. However, she said they weren't moving forward with the role I applied for, but she was interested in my experience for another role. That role was not at all related to my experience, but we spoke on the phone anyway. Her second question was about my salary requirements. My range was well above her budget for the new role but she said she's talk to her manager and get back with me. She called me 4 days later to let me know I was over her budget. No surprise there.

    Interview

    Recruiter called to talk about the position, good discussion for 30 mins. Promised to speak to hiring manager and schedule a follow up interview.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Esurance (San Francisco, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    There are three rounds

    Round 1:

    I got call from recruiter and he discussed few things with me to check I am compatible with this position or not.

    Round 2:

    Telephonic interview, which was very nice. After couple of days they asked me to fly for face to face round to their San Fransico's office and they provided flight tickets and hotel accommodation.

    Round 3:

    They scheduled five different interviews with different level of people..All of them went very nice apart from one which was taken by Indian project manager and I see some negativity in that person.

    Good thing about them is they provided update on each and every steps.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Esurance (San Francisco, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    A phone screen with a recruiter first, followed by an online analytic quiz (very easy). Then two more phone interviews with the hiring manager and a team member before an on-site interview. During the onsite one, I was arranged to meet seven people after a SQL/Excel/Stats test. Nothing too difficult.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Esurance (San Francisco, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview: This was technical and entirely based on SQL. I think the interview went well. At the end of it the interviewer said he would send me a list of problems for which I need to build the queries within 20 minutes. I sent the response within 10 minutes but never heard from them.
    Unprofessional to not inform me or update me of their decision!
