    I worked at Pacific Life full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, good people, stability.

    Cons

    Discipline required to power through repetitive and mundane assignments. Unless you are a superstar, or have the energy to remain actively social with management, internal growth is at a glacial pace.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your ears and doors open. That's all.

    Underwriter Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lynchburg, VA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pacific Life (Lynchburg, VA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed with HR person, and then a panel interview with the Director and Manager of Underwriting. All behavioral questions. Behavioral questions were less open-ended, and midway throughout the interview, I almost felt like I was interviewing for the wrong job and didn't belong.

    Interview Questions

    • "As you know, we in Underwriting will be working with Protected Health Information (PHI). Tell me about a time when someone asked you to give up health information on someone else, and describe how you handled that situation."   1 Answer
