    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Juan, PR
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Aon Hewitt in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    They had a job fair for about 2 days, but I missed it. Knew a person who worked there who told me they were still hiring even after the job fair, so I went. First part of the interview process was actually a test of 2 parts. We had to translate a paragraph from english to spanish and another paragraph from spanish to english, in a limited time. I was able to finish it but some people didnt, it didnt mattered if you finished it. Then got called over to be interviewed with one of the managers. She was very nice and the interview was quick and easy. That afternoon i got called saying i got the job and that i was supposed to show up the next day to fill the paperwork and for the onboarding. I officially started working the next day after that, with a 1 month training. So everything happened very quickly.

    The interview was easier to obtain going through Randstad. Once you are hired you are a Aon employee and paid by Aon not Randstad. I was interviewed by two men . The questions i got were
    easy. I was the first one they interviewed that day.

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Aon Hewitt in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through their website. A recruiter called me a few days later and asked basic screening questions (what I knew about the company, how I heard about the position, etc.). She said she would forward this information to a hiring manager and they would contact me if interested.

    A day or so later, I receive an email requesting an on-site 1:1 for a few days out. A few hours before our scheduled time, they cancelled the interview, claiming they were "going in a different direction" and were suspending the position.

    Benefits Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Lincolnshire, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Lincolnshire, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency - interviewed at Aon Hewitt in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had the worst hiring experience with Aon Hewitt in Lincolnshire, IL. The offered me the position and only allowed me two weeks to move to IL and obtain my Life and Health licenses. The back ground check people they use Hire Right is the worst back ground check people I've ever experienced. They asked for pay check stubs and W2's the verify employment. They don't just call and verify employment. If your credit is less than perfect than you need not apply. They will check your credit and tell you that you have to setup payment arrangements and provide them a receipt and proof you made payment arrangements. Then you show them proof and they will turn you down for the job but offer you a position that is $20,000 less in their support department all because your credit is less than perfect. This company has cost me $1000 dollars. I would not recommend anyone apply with them unless you like to be judged and have time and money to waste. The only good thing I got out of the horrible experience is I got my IL Life and Health license. So they can't take that away from me.

    Reasons for Declining

    The job they offered me first they decided my credit wasn't good enough so they offered me a lower paying job like I had no experience or education.
