    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Swiss Re (White Plains, NY) in November 2018.

    Interview

    one HR round with two on call technical interviews. In technical interview in depth knowledge of all the projects you have worked was very important. Interviewer assumed that I already know basics of linear and logistic regression, so asked more questions on NLP

    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!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Swiss Re.

    Interview

    I submit the application through Handshake, and I receive an on-campus interview about a week after. It is a one-to-one interview, and it takes about two weeks to a month to receive the result of the interview.

    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

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Swiss Re (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Went in for an interview in June 2019. The people were nice. They were not honest in their promise to respond. They told me I would be contacted within 2 weeks with a decision. They never responded to me, and its 2 months later. They are ignoring my requests for an update. This company is notorious for ghosting applicants.

    Corporate Real Estate and Services Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Swiss Re (New York, NY) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening arranged by HR. Interview email invitation was addressed to the wrong person. Phone screen was confirmed via email then rescheduled. Interviewer was a VP being chauffeured in a car and warned me that we may get cut off. Call kept going in and out. VP kept cutting me off mid-sentence. Bad first impression. Unprofessional to conduct a telephone interview in a moving car. Decided on the call that financial background was key to the role so mutually agreed would not be a good fit. Advice: train HR on how to set up interviews and train execs on how to conduct professional interviews. Totally unimpressed with Swiss Re.

    Interview

    Very brief but friendly process. The hiring manager asked a few questions but was more interested in hearing about my background. Seems like a nice place to work but the position would require relocation which was not an option at this time.
