Assistant Vice President Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
No Offer
Negative Experience

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Swiss Re (New York, NY (US)) in November 2018.

Interview

They called me for the interview thru consultancy. The consultancy kept on chasing every time the interview rounds were scheduled even on Sundays. Nevertheless, I attended three rounds of interview covering both technical and experience related and they called me till the final round. Post that neither the company HR nor the consultancy kept me posted on my interview status which was very disappointing as I'm an experienced professional. And later when I called the HR he said they have changed the profile from AVP to senior analyst and I'm over qualified for it. Extremely disappointing and unprofessional experience with them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Swiss Re (Zürich (Switzerland)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    First came a phone interview with the hiring manager and other team members. This stage also involved a simple numerical task. Then followed personal interviews with the hiring manager and another manager, as well as a separate interview with the director. At the end, a joint lunch with the team. Overall, pleasant people. Surprisingly, the hiring manager contacted past employer(s) without asking for permission in advance as required by the local law.

    Interview questions are odd. They don't focus on wether you'd be a good fit. Just want to know if you can answer their psychological questions
