    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Swiss Re.

    Interview

    I was called in for 2 one-on-one interviews with 2 different low level managers and then a week later called in for another one-on-one interview with the head of the department. It was a fairly easy process but did take a long time for them to call back and make an offer. 3 months from beginning to end.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Swiss Re in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by actuary who is also VP. She spoke at a slow pace. Started by introducing this position as well as relationship among departments, and asked me some general questions. Went through my resume first, followed by some behavioral questions. Left about 7 min for me to ask questions. I prepared 4 questions, but she spoke too slow that I only asked 2 and then time was out. Still waiting for response tho.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Swiss Re (Middlebury, VT).

    Interview

    Simple phone screen interview, all the questions were straight forward and it was a getting to know you sort of thing. Asked about a project I'd worked on, why I was interested in the company, etc. Fairly predictable and straightforward questions. I was surprised when, based off of that, I was told I was not being considered for a second more technical interview.
