    Leadership Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Princeton, NJ
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Munich Re (Princeton, NJ) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I had three rounds of interviews. The first round was a phone interview given by HR, about 15 minutes with general questions about my information. The second round was a technical interview by phone. The program lead asked me something about my projects. The final round was an onsite interview in Princeton, NJ. It was four hours with six interviewers. Most questions were behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    Strategic Sourcing Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Munich Re (Plainsboro, NJ) in April 2015.

    Interview

    LENGTHY: Consisted of initial phone screening, phone interview with hiring manager and a colleague, onsite interview with the same two team members including the Director of the Group, and a third interview at a remote client site 3+ hours away which consisted of a presentation and a case study, and some additional Q&A (reimbursement for travel provided).

    I did NOT like the fact that I had to travel remotely to meet the team (video or telepresence conference anyone?). They need to make the process less impeding for candidates. Overall, I liked the hiring manager and the home office team, but was certainly not excited at the prospect of working at the other remote client site locations. At the end of the last process, it was clear that it would not be a good fit for either party. I did not want the job and they went internal (I hear this is the norm from other reviews).

    Client Solutions Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Munich Re (Atlanta, GA) in February 2019.

    Interview

    I applied by in-house referral and was contacted a week or two later by HR. The process was: initial phone screen, phone interview with hiring manager, online Excel skills assessment + Wonderlic, another phone interview with VP, and 5 hours of back-to-back in-person interviews with 7 different people. I received a response 15 business days after interviewing.
    Each person made me feel valued and truly invested in our conversations. No other interviews I've had have made me feel so important as a candidate before. Overall, positive experience, though it is a decent time investment on your part.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Munich Re (Princeton, NJ) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Asked all the canned questions. No at all creative with the interviewing process. Just to get through the interview and hire who they wanted. Not interested in working for a company like this. Very political and a lot of nepotism.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Munich Re in March 2014.

    Interview

    The first one was a phone interview. It's about 45 minutes, it is behavioral question based interview. HR went through my resume and it was a pleasant talk. Then HR started some questions about my skills and it was confusing.

    • HR asked some half-technical questions like giving evidence to show I am proficient in R. HR was not satisfied with the answer. I was very confused what she was looking for.   Answer Question
