Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Swiss Re.

Interview

Horrible experience. There was one round of video interview which has super easy behavioral questions. Then came the final interview. There were three people who interviewed me at the same time. And they were too stingy that they did not fly me out to their office so the phone interview was very awkward with three people whose faces I did not know. The interview was more like an interrogation with no reciprocation of what I just said. Overall, terrible experience. They should know that this is a two-way interaction. After the interview, I would not want to work for them either!

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Excel-related questions, like how to use the pivot table.
      2. What kind of data processing language do you use? (R or SQL). Show me an example of your past projects related to those languages.
      3. Pricing problem. Given a man of 35 years old, healthy, if you want to sell him insurance, how much will you charge him?
      In general, they won't ask you too many questions related to Excel or other programming languages. I'm double majoring in actuarial math and data science. I guess that's the reason the recruiter asks me a lot of details about R.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Swiss Re (Westlake Village, Los Angeles, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email from a recruiter a few weeks later to set up a phone screen interview. I had a 30 minute phone interview with a Vice President Senior Property Actuary and then another 30 minute phone interview with a Vice President Property Actuary immediately afterwards. Both Actuaries were some of the nicest people and made the interview process very comfortable. Got an offer a week later!

    Interview

    Pretty standard. Applied through school, got a on school interview. Basic questions about why I wanna be an actuary, plans for passing exams, that sort of thing. It wasn't too technical, just asked if I was familiar with excel and what not.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Swiss Re (Armonk, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through their online career site, and contacted by a week. It was a typical behavioral interview by a phone call. They just want to know who you are, and your past experiences. The lady who I talked with was very kind and nice, but I was not invited to the second round interview with a line manager, because it was a first interview in my life and I was so nervous.
