Actuarial Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Nationwide (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2015.

Interview

I had one interview at an actuarial career fair at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh, PA. The interview was very laid back, not intimidating at all. The women was very friendly and didn't ask questions that you wouldn't expect. She was very receptive of what you had to say and put her input in as well, almost like just having a discussion with her. I then followed up with her a couple of weeks later to see where they were in the hiring process. She told me that she would put a word in for me for their last position open. I then received a call about a week later to set up a phone interview for the next day. Again, it was laid back, more as a discussion about the answers to your questions. Not intimidating and very friendly. He kept in touch with me about where they were at in their hiring process afterwards and when they would have decisions made about the position and such.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Nationwide (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I had two separate 30 minute interviews. I met in person both times because I attended two career fairs. The first one was with actuarial students and the second one had someone from the recruiting committee. I was asked mainly behavioral questions and it very relaxed and positive conversation.
