### Actuarial Analyst at Allstate was asked...

Nov 17, 2011
 You have seven balls and a two sided scale. all weigh the same but one. In two measurements find th odd bal3 AnswersI'm pretty sure that you have to know if the odd one is heavier or lighter than the other ones to do this in 2 measuresIt took me like 2 minutes to figure this out. I'm not fond of word problems either lol. I'm assuming this is correct. Okay put 3 balls on each side, hold onto 1. If one side is already leaning down with more weight, I know the heavier ball is that group of 3. If both sides are equal on the scale, then I’m already holding onto the heaviest ball and their is no need to continue. Okay, assuming one set of 3 balls is heavier, clear off the other lighter side and repeat the process with the heavier set of 3 balls. Again hold onto 1 ball, put 1 ball on the left and 1 ball on the right. If one ball is leaning down, that’s the heaviest ball. If they are both equal on the scale, then I’m holding onto the heaviest ball.Just wanted to state that you can do the same thing / process for finding the lighter ball, you would just keep the lighter balls on the scale and remove the heavier ones or if there equal you know you're holding onto the lighter ball.

### Associate Consultant at Liberty Mutual Insurance was asked...

Feb 23, 2011
 How many people can you fit into texas?5 AnswersAll the people in the world will fit in Texas.Added to the previous comment: if with the population density of NYC.Depends on how much cubic feet of space each person requires; then requires analysis of total people in world/usa, and total space they require. Then compare with total space in Texas.Show More ResponsesIf they are just occupying the space and there is no need to live there, the entire population of the world could theoretically be in Texas at the same time.Presuming you aren't given the size of texas... Population of New York City: 8 million. Population of the world? 7 billion. Could you fit 1000 New York Cities in to Texas? Probably not. You can check it with numbers, 300sq mi for NYC, 250k sq mi for Texas. You could then go a step further and say that if we were only concerned with how many people can we cram in there, then we could probably increase the density of NYC by an order of magnitude at least, in which case yes, we could probably fit the whole world in there. An assumption that you can fit NYC in a 100 times (a reasonable if not low estimate), and that you could probably fit 80 million people in to New York city if they all squeeze together, you would get a total fit of about 8 billion people could fit in Texas.

### Account Representative at Aflac was asked...

Jul 26, 2012
 That's the weird part, I wasn't asked a thing!3 AnswersUGH!They put you in a room with other people. They don't ask you nothing at all but how are you doing. They give you a piece of paper to fill out. Then they say they will meet with you one on one if you have 600 bucks.This is not a real position!!!! The only position to start out in at Aflac is Insurance Salesman only. Do not believe this if you see an opening for this Fake Position!!

### Policy Service Representative at CNA was asked...

Aug 24, 2013
 On your last review tell me some thing you were ask to work on?3 AnswersCNA Insurance needs to be more professional with the people who take their time to come to the interviews.... Have some manners and be more preofessional to let candidates know thank you that we have selected another applicant.Same here! I interviewed with them and my recruiter never got back to me or H.R. I received an email 2 months later saying I didn't get it. I'm glad I didn't get it because that tells you how much they care about their employees there. Sad!Very unprofessional and definitely agree with you two. The waste of peoples time and no consideration. Not a good look at all and even HR is a disgrace because you contact them for status/updates no response so that shows you that they represent their company quite well
