Difficult Interview

Programmer Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
London, England

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at AIG in November 2011.

Interview Details I applied through a recruitment Agency and after 3 weeks the process began with an hour of Telephone interview going through my Profile, and I was able to share at L2 my experience, expectation-the interviewer explained the role in detailed and AIG & its culture & future strategy. This was followed by 2 face-to-face interview

Interview Question – The majority of the Questions were competency based - so make sure you are well prepared for this approach as some of them can be quiet challeging if you have not prepared. eg "Give me an example of when worked with a difficult stakeholder, how you resolved issues with him/her and what did you learm from it "?   Answer Question

Analyst - FP&A Interview

Anonymous Employee
New York, NY (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at AIG in April 2014.

Interview Details Applied through 3rd party recruiter - had an initial phone screen with HR that lasted about 15 min to go over typical phone screen questions (why I am leaving my job, what are my computer skills, etc). Invited to have an in-person interview with dept hiring manager few days later. In person interview lasted about 1.5 hours - met with hiring manager, former dept team member, and two other members that gave me a simple excel test. Basically went over my resume, past work experience - nothing difficult or surprising at all. Great interview experience overall.

Interview Question – Nothing difficult whatsoever - the only unexpected part was the excel test, but it was very simple.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I went through a recruiter that negotiated on my behalf.

Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Atlanta, GA (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at AIG in October 2013.

Interview Details I was contacted by a talent acquisition manager about 10 days after applying for the position to set a time for a phone interview. The phone interview was about a week later, where we discussed mainly my resume for about 20 minutes and we set a in person interview for 10 days after that. I did not hear back from the company for 2-3 weeks after, and the position was cancelled or never filled. I contacted the recruiter about it, and was told they needed someone with more experience.

Client Advisor Interview

Anonymous Employee
Houston, TX (US)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at AIG in March 2014.

Interview Details I applied for the position in January 2014 and was contacted for an interview in February 2014. I interviewed with the VP of the business unit, the reporting manager, and an associate in the marketing department. The interview was very casual and flowed as if it were regular conversation. It lasted about 30 minutes.

Interview Question – There were no questions that were unexpected for a typical interview. I practiced with previous interview questions and questions from job websites. One behavioral question was asked: "Name a time where you were the first to notice an issue and what steps did you take to resolve it?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I'm sure there was room to negotiate, but they made an offer so high above my current salary, I didn't negotiate.

Vice President Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at AIG.

Interview Details Typical interview process, asked information about experience in several rounds of interviews...

Interview Question – Very relaxed - there were no difficult questions - interviewers just asked questions based on CV. This process will vary by interviewer but they were not very sophisticated in my case.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – AIG was very slow because everything had to go through NY seems Japan is unable to make offers without NY approval and then, went through a round of counter negotiations to receive higher salary and benefits. I advised negotiating for as much as possible as AIG does not give salary increases for years so get as high a salary as possible upon entering the company.
