    The first run is a campus interview and were all behavior questions. The second run interview was on-site. It was pretty intensive with five actuaries back-to-back interviews. The questions mixed with behavior and basic math logic questions.

    Two phone interviews, then brought into the home office for several in person interviews. Mostly resume type questions with some technical ones thrown in, really depends on who interviews you. Got back relatively quickly with each new step of the process, about 1-2 weeks between contact.
