    Interview

    This was a good, comfortable interview. I didn’t feel belittled or unappreciated at all. Still, I wasn’t convinced the interviewer enjoyed working for the company. That’s definitely a red flag for me.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Swiss Re.

    Interview

    Horrible experience. There was one round of video interview which has super easy behavioral questions. Then came the final interview. There were three people who interviewed me at the same time. And they were too stingy that they did not fly me out to their office so the phone interview was very awkward with three people whose faces I did not know. The interview was more like an interrogation with no reciprocation of what I just said. Overall, terrible experience. They should know that this is a two-way interaction. After the interview, I would not want to work for them either!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Swiss Re.

    Interview

    I submit the application through Handshake, and I receive an on-campus interview about a week after. It is a one-to-one interview, and it takes about two weeks to a month to receive the result of the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Excel-related questions, like how to use the pivot table.
      2. What kind of data processing language do you use? (R or SQL). Show me an example of your past projects related to those languages.
      3. Pricing problem. Given a man of 35 years old, healthy, if you want to sell him insurance, how much will you charge him?
      In general, they won't ask you too many questions related to Excel or other programming languages. I'm double majoring in actuarial math and data science. I guess that's the reason the recruiter asks me a lot of details about R.   Answer Question

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Swiss Re (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Went in for an interview in June 2019. The people were nice. They were not honest in their promise to respond. They told me I would be contacted within 2 weeks with a decision. They never responded to me, and its 2 months later. They are ignoring my requests for an update. This company is notorious for ghosting applicants.
