General Insurance companies assistant interview planning
General insurance companies are conducting a common recruitment exam for recruitment of assistant post.The exam consists of two stages written test and interview.The total marks is 50.Written test marks will be calculated on scale of 35.Interview will be of 15 marks.
So written test will have 70% weightage an interview will have 30% weightage.The total marks in written test is 250.So your marks on scale of 35 will be calculated as (marks you got / 250 * 35). Very good marks in written test will help you secure your place but interview will play important role in determining the border cases.
So you should take interviews seriously and start preparing for it.General Insurance companies interview will be different from that of IBPS interview or other similar interview.IBPS exam is for banks and General Insurance company exam is for Insurance company.
You might face questions from Insurance domain.This adds in complexity of interview.Also the recruitment format is new so candidates are not aware of interview questions and pattern.I have written this post to give an idea of interview questions,Insurance questions and also interview tips which are applicable for all interviews.
So this post will help you plan your General Insurance companies interview.You should start planning for the interview right away without waiting for written test result.The reason is the effort you put during this period will help you score over candidates who start preparing for interview after written test result declaration.Also it will help you in other interviews as well.As most of you have filled more than one exam application it will be beneficial for other exams as well (barring the insurance questions) which might not be helpful for other exams like IBPS.
General Insurance companies assistant interview questions
General Insurance companies interview questions can be divided into below groups.
- Reasoning ability questions
- Basic Insurance questions
- Basic profile based questions
- Situational questions
- HR questions
Basic Insurance Questions
This is probably most difficult section of interview questions.There is no such information shared by General Insurance companies about syllabus and area to be covered under Insurance domain.But they expect basic insurance knowledge from candidates.
Since you are going to be part of Insurance industry this basic terms and terminologies will be asked in interview.You might be aware of general flow and process but this is not sufficient.Knowledge of technical terms used in Insurance industry is expected.
I have created a document with basic knowledge of Insurance industry.This document is created specially for candidates appearing for General Insurance companies interview.The document consists of questions and answers both.You can download the document using download link given.This will be sufficient for your interview purpose.But in case you feel you want more information feel free to update me.
I will update the document with more questions or questions asked by you and upload it so that you can download the same.Basic insurance questions will be asked to candidates who do not much experience or who have experience in other industry.Candidates who have experience in Insurance industry can face questions relevant to their experience.
HR questions are other difficult section for experienced candidates.It is not that tough for freshers.I might sound bit strange but this is reality.Experienced candidates face questions like Why you want to join as General Insurance companies?
To help you answer this question and questions similar to this it is good to have idea of General Insurance Assistant job profile.As General Insurance assistant you will be responsible for claim processing.You will have to take insurance forms,do necessary documentation,process the forms and maintain records.
The job profile is at par with Bank clerks but you will not have people dealing as much as bank clerks.So job profile is not too demanding.Also you can get promoted internally to higher posts of AAO and Manager as well.So it is good career to opt for.It is stable have growth potential and is very promising indeed.
I have included list of HR questions along with answers in document.You can download the document using the download link above.

You will have few questions on your profile as well.These are filler questions but sometimes become difficult.They might ask you about gaps in education.They can ask you about gaps between education and job.These questions if not tackled in appropriate manner does make thing worse.They will follow up questions based on your answer and that will end the interview in failure.
