    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Insurance Services Office in November 2015.

    Interview

    I started with two phone interviews as the hiring manager lives over 1000 miles away. After I passed those, I met with a Regional Vice President at a library, as the company has few 'brick and mortar' offices outside of New Jersey. I thought that the interview in a public place felt cheap and odd. It would have been more comfortable to meet in an actual office which can be rented for an hour or two from a place like Regus. Should have learned from the interview that the company is cheap!

    Interview Questions

    • Started as a typical format interview. Work experience, how would you handle specific situations, etc.. Finished with a written test and then a laptop-based test to determine computer skills.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Insurance Services Office in May 2013.

    Interview

    An actuary I know that works there passed my resume to the appropriate people, and I was immediately contacted about openings that might fit what I am looking for. I was brought in for an interview within 3 days(on a Thursday). At that interview I met with an HR representative for about 45 minutes, after first completing two writing samples on insurance related topics.
    The following Monday I was contacted that a second interview was desired. The nest day I went back and met with two groups of people, each for about 45 minutes. Group one was the senior managers of the three areas with openings. Group two was two more junior managers.
    Now, 3 weeks later, I just was informed they are looking elsewhere.
