    Investment Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Reinsurance Group of America in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    They have a list of standard questions. For everyone, they asked one or two questions about yourself as warming up. And then they went through the list of questions one by one. All of them are behavioral questions, eg. describe a most challenging time you came across, how did you deal with disagreements within a team, etc. The director of HR is always smiling and helped you come up with your stories, but the VP of the investment department was really poker face. I think quantitative skills are kind of important for the position, at least this time.
