    Applied online after visiting the Genworth booth at my college's career fair. Got a call a few days later to set up an initial phone screening.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Genworth (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    The interview process was simple spoke with Manager who I would report to. I applied for the position with the Workday application which the company uses which was very simple and did not ask a bunch of questions. This was a promotion opportunity. Heads up if applying in-house then no matter how many people interview you, its comes down the the hiring managers decision only.

    Actuarial Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Genworth (Richmond, VA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    While I did not get an offer for what I am sure are valid and legitimate reasons, I still felt that aspects of this interview process were not professional. There were 3 separate interviews that consisted of pairs of interviewers.
    -One interviewer of the 6 was not present
    -One interviewer talked poorly of the actuarial profession and his experience, which was something that I as an actuarial student needed to hear, but probably not during an interview
    -Another interviewer was on their phone for a good chunk of time,
     -Another interviewer had to conduct the beginning of the interview on their own while
    waiting for the second interviewer to arrive and was clearly uncomfortable conducting it on his own, as he did not ask good questions nor really listen to my answers
    Overall, the interview process as a whole left me seeing Genworth Financial in a negative light. They said they would get back to me in a single week, but they did not and at 2 weeks
    I had to call to find out their decision.
