    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Collins Barrow (Edmonton, AB) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Basically it was done via email through a single manager and not HR. Applied online, got an email from a manger saying can you come in on this day. Moved things around and therefore I could make it. They did make me wait in the lobby easily more than half and hour. The other manager wasn't even around and they had to chase each other to get ready. Wouldn't make a client wait like that or be unprepared for a meeting.

    Interview Questions

    • They took the time to ask one question, tell us about yourself. That was it. That was the full extent of the interview after waiting a considerable time in the lobby. They put no effort into asking questions or trying to understand you.   1 Answer

    Actuarial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Collins Barrow.

    Interview

    Within 1 week after my resume submission online, I got a phone call from the HR for a 5 minute interview at a time I didn't expect at all. The questions were pretty general regarding my resume, including why I want to be an actuary and whether I liked my current part time job. I didn't have my resume and computer with me but I did pretty well and the HR said they would contact me for an interview in the coming week. During the interview, I met with the managers of the department and they were very nice and laid back. They started from asking 'tell me about yourself' and checking my qualifications to asking questions to get to know my personality. Nothing tricky and they were very genuine in the questions they asked. I'm still waiting to hear back from them.

    Interview Questions

    • What were you doing after graduation? (I didn't work at all for over half a year because I was writing 2 exams to make myself qualified)   Answer Question

    Senior Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Collins Barrow (Toronto, ON) in November 2015.

    Interview

    First contacted by HR from a recruiting company, then the HR of the company, then the partner so three rounds in total. The HR rounds focused more on behavioral questions, and also asked about past experience. If you could describe what you did in the past, either work or study experience, in a clear and confident way, that would definitely help. In the conversation, try to raise one or two points that you think the position that you are applying to will be interested in, for example accounting experience or business problem solving experience that you have.
    Overall, good experience. Not too complicated, and the partner was nice.

    Interview Questions

    • The partner introduced the work that the team does, then asked about past work experience.   Answer Question
