    Account Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 interviews at this company. It appeared to be a small subsidiary of a larger company which had a lot of promise. The interviews were short and rushed. The first interview was with the hiring manager which kept her word by getting back to me after the interview. The 2nd interview was first with the hiring manager and then with her boss. The 2nd interviewer was not to inviting and again the interview process was rushed. I was told that I would receive a response by the end of that week to no avail. 2 weeks later, I sent a follow up email and received no response and no regret letter. Very unprofessional.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview with a recruiter. Had a second phone interview with a manager in CA and two onsite interviews in Itasca. Followed up with recruiter #1 she said she was just in a teleconference with the hiring group and I would be receiving an offer. Two days later, I received a call to go in for another interview with the newly placed hiring manager. Had my interview with the hiring manager and she decided I didn't have the skill set she wanted. No offer. I passed up 2 other jobs while waiting on AJG to drag their feet for 2 months. Don't wait on these guys, they do not seem to know what they are doing.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was very difficult. A really pushy assistant asked me irrelevant questions and made me feel very uncomfortable. Hiring director was great. Had good vision for the company's SharePoint environment. A lot of interviews turned into more interviews and then I got a call that the assistant didn't like my answers so they were passing on me.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied through recruiter and heard from the hiring manager the next day. I schedules and interview for the following morning. I was called the afternoon after my first interview to meet the Vice President. Then I was asked to come in for an Excel test. After that I didn't hear anything. When attempting to e-mail the hiring manager I was ignored and only got a response after e-mailing the Vice President. Then I never heard from them again. I resented the fact that they wouldn't keep me in formed after I visited their office three times, and would not consider working for the company in the future.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Internship interview for Gallagher Benefit Services. After submitting my application materials, I had a 30 min. phone interview with the employee who referred me to the position. Questions included academic projects of which I was proud and questions about my strengths and weaknesses. This was followed by an on-site interview with a former intern, senior consultant, and area vice president. I met with each person independently for approx. 45 mins. The area vice president was running the internship program, and he explained the program rather than asking interview questions. Suit recommended for this company.

    Customer Service Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a Customer Service job. They wanted me for another job that I wasn't interested in doing. They didn't tell me that until we were part way through the interview. It was confusing because they were asking me what I liked to do best and I said Customer Service. I think they thought I was over qualified for that job and needed a Benefit Analyst. I could have done the job but I felt burned out after doing a similiar job for many years. The other job included both Customer Service and Benefit Analysis. I wrote thank you notes after the interview and followed up with them but they didn't return my calls or emails.
