    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MassMutual (Springfield, MA (US)).

    Interview

    Submitted my resume to a recruiter. Was contacted directly for an onsite interview. Spent a day at the headquarters. Had four interviews, a lunch break and a tour with current students in the program. Interviewers ranged from senior-level actuaries to actuarial students. Everyone was nice and friendly. Most interviews were not very formal. I ended up talking about insurance products and extracurricular activities with some of the interviewers. I heard from the HR a few business days after the interview.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at MassMutual.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter who was very upfront about the position, salary and basic duties. The recruiter asked more interview questions than the hiring manager, which is interesting. The interview was easy because I practiced and prepared with a friend who was a former hiring manager. My friend was a harder interviewer than the MassMutual hiring manager. They were very professional but the interview seemed very rushed and the hiring manager seemed disinterested in me as he checked his cell phone.

    After applying they contact you to schedule a phone screening behavioral interview. To help you prepare for the phone interview, they email you a list of potential questions as well as potential ways in which you should answer them using a STAR approach (Situation Task Action Result). If you pass the phone interview, the next step is a in-person interview at one of their offices.

    If was fairly easy because it was a right after college interview. General questions were asked and mostly the interviewer talked about what work he did for the company and how new hirea would fit in.
    Then he asked me about my background and my interests. This was just the preliminary interview before the application was submitted

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at MassMutual (San Antonio, TX (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was a group interview. It was more of an info session. The specific job ended up being more of a sales position for insurance. The woman was very polite and enthusiastic and the interview left with the group of interviewees responsible for contacting for further information. The first interview was mostly an information session and I need not continue with the opportunity.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at MassMutual (Richmond, VA (US)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty simple. I applied online and within a couple days was contacted by an HR manager. A week or so later I interviewed with her in person. She was very friendly and easy to interview with. A couple months later, the executive called to interview with me in person with his team. For that interview they didn't seem as prepared or have any questions ready but they said it was because they never really hire because their office has no turn over. They said how much they liked me and I was a perfect fit and even called to tell me, yet never offered me the job.
