    Claims Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Swiss Re (Toronto, ON) in January 2014.

    Interview

    After applying for a claims specialist position on their website, I received a phonecall and was schedule for 3 interviews on the same day. Each of them would last 45 minutes and would be individual with a member of Swiss Re's team. The first one with a Vice president, the next one with a senior vice president and the last one with someone of HR.

    Interview Questions

    • Almost all of the questions were basic questions you are asked in interview. Nothing very suprising.   Answer Question
