    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Aon Hewitt (Lincolnshire, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Internal hire. First had a brief screening with recruiter, then separate interviews with the hiring managers. Entire process from application submission to offer acceptance was about 1 month. Typical behavioral interviewing questions like "tell me a time when.." I also could tell they were assessing me based on the questions I asked them and the follow up discussion to their responses.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you had to bring multiple parties together to address a problem and come to a common solution together.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was provided some time to "think about the offer" but the salary was above my expectations so I accepted without negotiation.

    Associate Partner Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Aon Hewitt (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The process was extremely disorganized. After having 3 phone interviews, the Recruiter kept asking me to hold various dates for onsite interviews and then she did not respond to my email and voice mail messages inquiring as to whether there would in fact be an onsite interview.

    Finally after several weeks an onsite interview was scheduled. I was initially told I would be meeting with 5 people. Then it changed to me meeting one person. I was quite surprised to get a call from the recruiter 1 hour before my meeting asking if I could come to my interview within 15 minutes because the consultant with whom I would be interviewing was "very busy". I rushed and arrived to Aon Hewitt 15 minutes later only to sit and wait 40 minutes for my interview.

    I interviewed with a consultant who appeared to be more focused on his upcoming vacation than my interview. He made no apology for being late for the interview, despite the fact that he had requested for me to come early. Then he proceeded to read a series of behavioral interview questions from a booklet. It was very apparent that he had not even looked at my resume and he was not listening to my response.

    I was given no opportunity to ask questions during my interview. When I asked about timing and next steps he replied that he was going on vacation the next week and he would not have a chance to discuss my interview until he returned.

    I received 2 offers for comparable positions from other consulting firms and completed 8 interviews in less time than Aon Hewitt was able to schedule 1 onsite interview. Aon Hewitt said they were looking to fill the position quickly and that they felt that my background was a great fit. Nonetheless, the Recruiter never responded to emails that she herself did not initiate, which I find highly unprofessional. Aon Hewitt showed a complete lack of regard for my time throughout the interview process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Aon Hewitt.

    Interview

    Applied through college job board. First round was online through some HireWire site or something. 12 questions, about half written essay, half video recording. Not too hard, caught me off guard cause I was under prepared but I was still selected to the next round. Second/Final round was at their office. Basically you network and listen to employees and former interns for half the day and then you get one interview with two people. Pretty basic behavioral questions and questions about your resume.
