    Retirement Actuarial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (Philadelphia, PA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    An interview process similar to other large companies who hire actuaries. This was a scheduled interview day from 8-3, where I was interviewed by 6 more experienced Actuaries in the department. I was also given a math aptitude test (which tested your ability to do basic math in your head), and a test to see if you understood the basic concept of pensions. There was generally no break, however we had lunch with 2 younger analyst who we casually chatted with and talked about the job (and many other things). Overall a good interview experience. For someone who hasn't done it before, the all day interview may seem daunting, but while it is exhausting, it is also less nerve racking than a single high pressure interview. The interviewers have a few standard interview questions to ask you, but for me they felt more like good conversations for an hour each.

    Benefits Service Center Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (Mount Laurel, NJ) in September 2014.

    Interview

    40 minute phone interview covering my work history with A recruiter/HR manager within another state. Once I passed that round, then I was brought into the office the following day for an interview with 2 women. One of them seemed very standoffish and not friendly or welcoming at all. The other was asking all the questions and seemed nicer and more approachable. They asked me a few situational questions based on the job I was applying, customer service type, as in how I would navigate systems, If I had a system for learning uptraining in an environment were information changes daily, also how I dealt with a difficult customer or situation on call in the past.
    I was not hired for this position. I was told I did not dress professionally enough. I may not have the associates or bachelor's degree but I am not in idiot, if I had a more professional or newer attire I would have wore them. I guess my interviewers have never been in a position where they were out of work for months struggling to take care of children on their own without anyone to help them out. WTG TW.
