Delivery Specialist Interview

Delivery Specialist
Lincolnshire, IL

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Aon Hewitt.

Interview Details – Had a "digital interview" with the recruiter that featured recorded behavioral questions for you to answer with a webcam, as well as written questions. Was called back for a second interview within a week and interviewed via conference call with 2 hiring managers. Questions were behavioral in nature as well.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you worked on a project with a group of people and your outcome was not what you hoped it to be, and how would you have done it differently.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I could have negotiated, but they gave me a bump because I had previous experience with the company prior so I accepted the offer.

Easy Interview

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Lincolnshire, IL

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Aon Hewitt.

Interview Details – The company hires contractors through Randstad. This interview process is a lot easier than going directly through the company. Contractors can be temp to hire. I went this route and was hired on the spot. Where through the company directly I had to do a not so easy test and after that a phone interview was scheduled. I didn't get the offer after the phone interview.

Interview Question – Why should I hire you?   Answer Question

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative

Interviewed at Aon Hewitt

Interview Details – I was sent an invitation to complete a digital interview at the comfort of my home, after three weeks I received a call inviting me to continue on with interview process and meet with someone for a physical interview. The two ladies that interviewed me were really nice and made me feel very comfortable, of course being prepared (doing research on position, company, writing questions) helped. After, three weeks I received an email asking if I was still interested, and from there it took about a month to complete background check. Suggestion: If your goal is to get a job with Aon Hewitt, don't give up…be patient it is a long interview process, but in the end the reward is great!

Interview Question – Give an example of a difficult time you had to deal with a co-worker and how did you handle it?   Answer Question

Catastrophe Risk Analyst Interview

Catastrophe Risk Analyst
Chicago, IL

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Aon Hewitt in September 2013.

Interview Details – They first notified me via email that I would be getting a phone interview. After I had the phone interview, which lasted about twenty minutes, I traveled up to Chicago to visit them. I think they typically do their interviews via Skype, but I was going to be in town, so I decided to do the interview in person.

The interview was three hours long. The interview consists of five to six interviewers, each thirty minute segments. With mine, it was three thirty-minute interviews (where each person would come in and interview you separately). They will tell you the format of the interview ahead of time, though. The first two hours was an exhaustive list of typical interview questions. It felt like I was asked some questions more than once and sometimes even twice. The last segment of the interview, you actually get to talk about math and any sort of experience that will make you qualified for the job. This was the portion of the interview I felt most confident in. They don't really ask you too many specific questions about math, but they do ask some reasoning questions that allow them to gauge your critical reasoning skills.

Interview Question – How do you define success?   Answer Question
