Difficult Interview

Insurance Specialist - Metro Casualty Advisory Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies in March 2014.

Interview Details – 3 wks. after applying via LinkedIn, received an afternoon e-mail scheduling a next morning phone screening interview. Face-to=face interviews were to begin the following week. Position was in NY, but interviewer was in Kentucky. Standard screening questions including "what kind of salary do you need?" The interviewer said that Marsh never includes salaries in job postings. She also made a remark about the cost of living in NYC, which led me to believe that the $50k-60k salary range that I suggested was too high. In addition, she mentioned, in response to my question, that they had a very large number or candidates. This gave me the impression that were in a position to be extremely selective.
