AXA Application Process

After you have explored all the job opportunities at AXA you can apply to several positions that might be of interest to you. After that recruiters will analyze if you meet their pre-screening criteria and get in touch with you. Depending on the specific position you applied to the selection process is specially tailored to suit the requirements of the advertised position. Your AXA contact will inform you of the recruitment process and if this will involve assessments such as (online) tests, interviews and/or presentations.

If you are applying to a position at AXA you will usually be asked to perform a few assessment tests published for AXA by CEB/Gartner (formerly SHL). If you successfully complete these assessment tests, AXA will invite you to a competency-based video interview.

For some positions, AXA may invite you to an assessment centre, which is designed to measure a range of different skills to tell if you fit within the company. The contents of the assessment day will vary per position, but as a candidate, you have the right to know in advance what you can expect.

AXA Interview and STAR-Method

If you pass the psychometric test part of the application process you’re usually invited for a video call, also called a video interview. Make sure you have access to a PC equipped with a webcam, microphone and good internet connection. Approach the interview professionally and stick to a formal dress code you would wear for a ‘normal’ interview. 

During this interview, you will have to answer several behavioural questions. The answers to your questions will give the recruiters information about your past experiences and thought processes as they relate to the position you applied to. Their goal is to understand how well you would fit within the culture at AXA. 

A series of standardized questions will be asked about for instance your past experiences, think of questions such as: 

  • Provide an example of when you have influenced someone to the benefit of a particular approach or idea.
  • Provide an example of a time when you made a significant contribution to the success of a team.
  • Give an example of a time you achieved something ambitious, how you did it and why you were proud of it.
  • What are your long-term goals and explain how you have developed a plan to achieve them?
  • What did you study and how will this benefit you in the role you are applying for? 

You can also expect questions about AXA itself, for instance, what you think is the most interesting thing you have learned about the company from your research. Therefore, make sure you research the company and its policies thoroughly before you take the interview. Figure out answers to basic questions, such as ‘why do you want to work here?’. 

It’s important to give a complete response to the behavioural questions to let the interviewers thoroughly understand why you acted the way you did and what your thought process was. In order to provide a comprehensive response, you can use the STAR method. 

The STAR method is short for Situation, Task, Action, Result. Each concept is a step you can take to answer a behavioural interview question. By completing all four steps in answering a question you can provide a thorough answer. The concepts in the STAR acronym include: 

Situation: This is where you describe the context within which you performed a specific job, task or faced a challenge at work. For example, you were working on a project in a team where you got into a conflict with a coworker. 

Task: Next, describe your role and responsibility in the earlier mentioned situation. What were you doing and what was expected of you? 

Action: After describing your task, describe what actions you took to complete this task. Focus here on what you did, rather than what team members, your boss or other coworkers did.

Result: Finally, explain the outcomes or results of the actions that you took. Emphasize what you accomplished and what you learned from the particular situation.

CEB/Gartner Numerical Reasoning Test

Numerical Reasoning Tests are designed to assess the understanding of tables of statistical and numerical data, as well as the ability to make logical deductions. It is common for this test to be related and relevant to the workplace, requiring the job candidate to solve realistic numerical problems. Candidates are usually permitted to use a rough sheet of paper and/or a calculator. Depending on the job level, this test typically lasts between 15 to 25 minutes. 

ceb-numerical-reasoning-test-example-question

Example question of a CEB/Gartner Numerical Reasoning Test. Click here for a free practice test!

The correct answer of the example question above is 2008. This can be calculated as follows:

Step 1: Calculate the proportion of students to non-students for the years

- 2012: 45,000 / (320 + 3,500) = 11.78

- 2011: 44,000 / (480 + 6,300) = 6.49

- 2010: 44,000 / (520 + 4,500) = 8.76

- 2009: 36,000 / (360 + 3,400) = 9.57

- 2008: 37,000 / (470 + 5,700) = 6.10

Thus the correct answer is 2008.

CEB/Gartner Verbal Reasoning Test

Verbal Reasoning Tests are designed to measure the ability to understand written information and to evaluate arguments about this information. Candidates are usually provided with a passage of written information, often relevant to the workplace, and are given some statements. The goal is to determine if the statements are true, false or whether you cannot determine if the statement is true or false without further information. Depending on the job level, this test typically lasts between 15 to 20 minutes.

The correct answer in the example question above is B, "False". The Hastings Line not only served as a way to transport miners and passengers, it still does. 

CEB/Gartner Inductive Reasoning Test

Inductive Reasoning Tests measure a candidate's ability to draw inferences and understand the relationships between various concepts independent of acquired knowledge. Inductive reasoning questions typically involve a number of diagrams or pictures. Candidates will be required to identify patterns, rules and/or associations between them by thinking conceptually and analytically. The Inductive Reasoning Test is also referred to as Logical or Diagrammatic Reasoning Test. Depending on the job level, this test typically lasts between 20 to 25 minutes. 

ceb-gartner-inductive-reasoning-test-example-question

Example question of a CEB/Gartner Inductive Reasoning Test. Click here for a free practice test!

The right answer to the example question above is C. There are two patterns to be found

Pattern 1: The coloured box jumps one position clockwise every time.

Pattern 2: The amount of coloured boxes increases alternately with two and then one.

CEB/Gartner Reading Comprehension Test

The CEB/Gartner Reading Comprehension Test is used to evaluate your understanding of the English language, across beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. It measures a candidate's ability to extract relevant information from written sources and make objective judgments on the basis of that information. The questions that are asked can either be specific questions that can literally be found in the text, like a date, or the questions may be general, where the answer can only be found by understanding the meaning of the full passage. This test usually lasts around 10 to 30 minutes with a multiple-choice, randomized and adaptive question format.

ceb-gartner-reading-comprehension-test-example-question

Example question of a CEB/Gartner Reading Comprehension Test. Click here for a free practice test!

The correct answer for the example question above is D, 2.1 degrees. This can be calculated as follows:

3 hours and 20 minutes are the same as 3 1/3 hours. The total number of degrees that the temperature increased with is 32 – 25 = 7 degrees Celsius. 7 : 3 1/3 = 2.1. Thus, the temperature of the water rose by 2.1 degrees Celsius per hour.

CEB/Gartner Deductive Reasoning Test

Deductive Reasoning Tests measure a candidate's ability to draw logical conclusions based on information provided, identify strengths and weaknesses of arguments, and complete scenarios using incomplete information. Sometimes people confuse the definitions of inductive and deductive reasoning. They are both parts of logical reasoning. As said, deductive reasoning is a method in which one applies a certain rule given by a statement or argument to reach specific conclusions. In contrast, during an Inductive Reasoning Test the statement or a set of repetitive occurrences help one define or identify a certain rule, pattern or association. 

Inductive Reasoning: A specific given example or a set of repetitive occurrences lead to a rule, pattern or association.

Deductive Reasoning: A rule or general principle lead to a specific conclusion.

The most popular and common form of deductive reasoning is the Syllogisms Test. The CEB/Gartner Deductive Reasoning Test is administered online and typically lasts between 15 to 20 minutes. 

ceb-gartner-deductive-reasoning-test-example-question

Example question of a CEB/Gartner Deductive Reasoning Test. Click here for a free practice test!

The answer is A, only the conclusions I, II and III are valid. 

Conclusion I is valid. Some rivers are a lake or some lakes are rivers or not all lakes are rivers.

Conclusion II is valid. Some lakes can flow since some lakes are rivers and all rivers can flow.

Conclusion III is valid. Some rivers are a lake and can flow because some lakes are rivers and all rivers can flow.

Conclusion IV is invalid. No oceans can be concluded to be rivers because no relationship is established between two premises.

CEB/Gartner Calculation Test

Calculation Tests assess your understanding of mathematical equations and your ability to solve problems. It measures your basic numerical ability using problems that contain missing variables. In order to solve the questions, you will be required of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing but also manipulating equations. 

ceb-gartner-calculation-test-example-question

Example question of a CEB/Gartner Calculation Test. Click here for a free practice test!

The right answer is 22. This is calculated as shown below:

(60 ÷ (-20)) + ( 3 * 5/3 * 5 ) = -3 + 25 = 22

CEB/Gartner Situational Judgement Test

The CEB/Gartner Situational Judgement Test is designed to measure a candidates’ ability to choose the action that is most appropriate in a workplace situation. With your answers, a company can assess how you would handle certain situations that you might encounter in the job that you have applied for. In a CEB/Gartner Situational Judgement Test, you will be given a certain problem related to the job you are applying for, and a few possible actions are given. Your task is to rate the different possible actions from highly undesirable to highly desirable.

ceb-gartner-sjt-test-example-question

Example question of a CEB/Gartner Situational Judgement Test. Click here for a free practice test!

In the example above the most likely to do should be the second response and the least likely the first response.

The first response is the most effective response as you are trying to solve his problem without having him to do more. By contacting the person who initially received the complaint, you are avoiding having to duplicate functions as the person might have gained some ground in trying to solve the problem.

The second response is less effective because requesting him to call back the next day is unnecessary and you are putting extra stress on him in addition to the problem he already had with his software. You can take out a few minutes and gather the necessary information you need to help him before going home.

CEB/Gartner Error Checking Test

CEB/Gartner’s Error Checking Tests are used to assess a candidates ability to compare information quickly and accurately, which would ensure the quality of work. The task consists of a given row of 5 to 10 numbers or letters on the left side. On the right side, 5 rows of the same amount of letters or numbers are given. All of these rows on the right side have slight deviations, except one. Your task is to pick the exact match with the left row as quickly as possible.
