    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at National Western (Austin, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Was contacted by HR half a week after applying. In-person interview was set up for a week later. When I arrived, I checked in and waited to meet a woman from HR, who led me upstairs to the interview. I had a relatively casual one-on-one with a VP from the actuarial department who would have been my direct supervisor. I left feeling great about the interview and waited two weeks for a response, when I was told that they had chosen another candidate for the position.
