Actuarial Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA

Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mercer (Pittsburgh, PA) in September 2016.

Interview

I did not even really apply for the job. They got my resume through a resume book at a career fair. They had me come in for a on-site interview where I met with three groups of two people each. Most of the questions were behavioral, but they ask you some odd questions that make you think.

    Interview

    I'm glad I found out that this is an unprofessional company before I made the mistake of working with them! They invited me for a second round interview but cancelled my eligibility due to rescheduling on their end.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Mercer (Richmond, VA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Brief HR Screening interview followed by a full day of individual, 45-minute interviews with 5 members of the Actuarial Team. The day included lunch. Most of the questions asked were about items on my resume. The on-site interview was mainly for the employees to gauge my fit within the company and whether or not they could see themselves working with me. Little to no situational or critical thinking questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Mercer (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    I applied via Taleo online. Four days later I was called by a recruiter about the position and we talked about the position (interview format) for about an hour. A week later I talked with one of the heads of the company at the site I'd be working at and we interviewed for about an hour. I then was flown out for an interview at their Phoenix location. I interviewed with 9 people back to back over lunch. The time in the interview was from 8am-12:30pm and then I flew home. Such a shame I wasn't selected - their company was very professional and I would have liked (and still would like) to work for them. Luckily the recruiter told me he's looking to put me in other positions - very professional of him.

    Interview

    I applied through the school website and get the interview on campus. Around 15 students at our school get the interview, and I think the process goes well. Not many difficult problems and it is a conversational format. Received notification after a while to say result comes out in a week. The second round is on site interview. But did not get it.

    Communications from Mercer were a little slow. The final round interview was a half day of interviews followed by a lunch. The interviews were just them getting to know you to see if you fit.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Mercer in November 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through the university career website and was invited for an on campus interview. It was a 1 on 1 interview that lasted 30 minutes. The interviewer just went through my resume and had me talk about my experiences. There weren't any particularly difficult questions.

    I found out that I was invited back for an on-site interview just 2 days later along with 5 other people. That was a half day of 1 on 1 interviews which ended with a group lunch. Those interviews were rather informal and were mostly similar to the on campus one. The interview really depended on the person doing the interviewing so the difficulty varied. They didn't ask me any technical questions. It seemed like they were trying to assess your work ethic and competence but also your personality to see if you would fit in.

    I believe that between 20-25 of us were invited to the 1st interview and 6 were selected.
