behavioral based interview questions were not difficult. Not strong HR support for managers. It took them forever to set a time for the interview. Then HR did not get back to canidates for quite a while

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Swiss Re (Bengaluru (India)).

    Interview

    Resume forwarded through a recruiter. Had 1 HR round, then dotted line manager from Zurich, Manager interview followed by HR director round. Mostly they were trying to assess if I am a good fit. Most of their questions were behavioral type. All the rounds went for more than 45mins and all of the interviews were over the phone.

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Swiss Re in January 2011.

    Interview

    First, it's a phone interview via HR. Then a phone interview with your hiring manager. Then they fly u up for a live interviews. Felt that the entire process was pretty fair and casual. They were very friendly and patient and did not pressure you with deadlines. Salary negotiations typically go back to Zurich, Switzerland if you have semi high level position.
