Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Swiss Re in May 2017.

Interview

First round, one of the analysts in team interviewed me. Basically go though the resume and ask about the details in previous experience. Second round, I interviewed with the hiring manager though Skype. He asked me some technical questions rooted in my previous experience and introduce the job tasks involved in the internship. Then I also had a brief talk with an HR about the internship details. Overall, all the HR and interviewers are very friendly and nice.

    Interview

    I did an on campus first round interview. The interviewer was very friendly and it was mostly behavioral questions. I am personally not very good at answering behavioral style questions so my advice to students applying to Swiss Re for an internship: prepare adequately beforehand different answers to different kinds of behavioral questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Swiss Re (Armonk, NY) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I had my first round interview with an HR lady who asked me a couple of behavioral questions: "tell me about yourself" "describe a situation where you had to make a difficult decision." Then 5 days later I got an e-mail telling me that I have qualified to the second round interview. I had another phone interview with the Vice President of the department I was applying for and another analyst. The questions were really hard and I don't really remember what they asked.
