    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at The Standard in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online in September, received call back for 30-minute phone interview two weeks before Thanksgiving. Phone interview focused on behavioral questions and only briefly touched technical matters. Call for final interview at Portland office came Tuesday before Thanksgiving, scheduled for early December. Final interview was 4 hours, encompassing 11 people, before having two people for lunch. Interview questions matched those posted here pretty closely, focusing on teamwork and experience dealing with difficult situations. Surprisingly, almost no technical questions, and only a few on technological/computational experience; no actuarial questions.
