Interview

Three interviews + lunch with two actuarial students. Questions were a mix of behavioral and technical. Very pleasant atmosphere. Questions were about what I had expected, but you can't prepare for everything they might ask you. I left very impressed with the organization and its people.

Interview Questions

  • Technical question where you are given a chart or graph and asked to interpret it.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance (Seattle, WA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    At first, things moved pretty quickly. I was contacted only two days after I applied online to schedule a phone interview. Two days after the phone interview, they contacted me to fly in to the Seattle office. I then waited for two long months to finally be told I was rejected. They're extremely accommodating of women and minorities.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance (Boston, MA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Met a recruiter who referred me to the actuarial recruiter. We exchanged some emails, one of which she prompted me to apply. A few days after online submission, I was contacted via email about reaching the first round of interviews (phone). Phone interview was about ~30-60 minutes long and consisted of the basic questions. Maybe a few questions about what you know about actuary. Two weeks later, they notified me of reaching the next round (in-person). They organized a flight, hotel, and date for me and soon enough flew to Boston for the interview. Interview is 8:00AM to around 1:00PM, then a lunch with two actuarial assistants (so kind of like a casual interview). Interviews actually went by very fast; all the actuaries were very easy to talk to and it was great to hear more about their experiences.

    Interview Questions

    • Phone -- Why Actuary? Why Liberty? Tell me about a time you had to deal with a difficult team member/deadline/multi-task? What has your favorite non-major related class been so far and why?

      In Person -- more technical and analytical, they want to know how you think/what you know about insurance/actuary

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I applied through a prior leadership event so the interview was an extension of the program. I had to apply for the program through an online data base, as a first round. Then they contacted me to do a follow up phone call. That consisted of basic questions such as why this major, what has your favorite class been so far and why, and so on. It was a 30 min interview. The conference was conducted by many of their senior campus recruiters so it was almost like a 3 day interview before the interview. Following the conference the interview was three 50 minute sessions, prior it had been five, each varied in style more person what do you know about the field/why do you want to do this work, behavioral, and semi situation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance (Seattle, WA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and within two weeks I was contacted to do a phone interview with an actuary. The phone interview lasted about 45 minutes, and was mostly questions about my resume and how/why I decided to pursue a career as an actuary. After about another week, I was asked to come in for an on-site interview.

    Myself and two other candidates went to an introductory presentation about the company in the morning where we were asked to write a paragraph about why we were interested in the opportunity, and then we cycled through four 1-hour interviews with actuaries throughout the day. It seemed as though interviewers had picked questions out of a question bank of general, behavioral interview questions. Two actuarial students were assigned to guide me around the building between interviews and take me to lunch.
