    I worked at National Western full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It depends on the department you work in and also your supervisor. Some departments are very flexible and they give opportunities of Friday party and birthday party for employees to be happy.

    Cons

    Not very good benefit. Quite some people gossip around. Very high turnover rate. Not a stable place. Policy changes every day.

    Assistant Actuary Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    Positive Experience
    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.
