Application Details

I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Aon Hewitt.

Interview Details

Very quick process. Had a phone screening on Monday, interviewed on Wednesday, was offered the position the following Monday. Came into the office and interviewed with the manager and two supervisors. Each had their own distinct style and questions. All provided feedback and informed me of the pros and cons of working for the company.

Interview Questions
Negotiation Details
I negotiated, they met me a bit over halfway. I was "satisfied" but they could afford to provide me with a higher salary.

    Standard behavioral questions. "Tell us about a time you..." type questions. Very standard interview with few surprises. The questions were mostly general, but there were some technical questions as the role required some understanding of data and process flow.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Aon Hewitt.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a nice recruiter thru email who told me about the position. We then spoke on the phone and he was very informative. I had two 30 minute phone interviews the following week with the team manager and one of the team leads. Both were really fun to talk to. We spent more time discussing stuff like the military than we did the SAR questions. They had some that were required to ask, but those were pretty easy. I was told that I would be notified in two weeks whether or not an offer would be extended. I heard back in a week and a half. All done through email.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Aon Hewitt in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    This had to be the longest most mundane waste of time interview I have ever sat through. I accepted the bs only because the office was closer to my ideal work location. Otherwise, I would have flipped the bird and continued where I was comfortably employed. First a recruiter emailed me about interested in a role. I responded yes within a day. She responded after a week with an application link and a questionnaire. I completed the app and questions within a day. I did not hear back from her for three weeks. I followed up once every 3 days after the first week. Finally she said I was invited to interview in person. That interview was scheduled a week after this discussion happened. I get to the office. The interviewer is a half hour late. I interviewed with four people. All of whom seemed more disinterested in the role than me. (naturally, I couldn't be more interested without more knowledge of the role/company obviously). They asked behavioral questions, a ton of if this then what cliche questions, and almost nothing about technology or talent which I was ready to discuss. This took about 4 hours of the day. Yawn...I was told the recruiter would contact me within a few days. Nope, 2 weeks went by. I emailed her every 3 days again after her few days time limit was up. She finally wrote up a crappy offer in an email that looked like a cheap mail merge doc doctored up as a PDF.

    ADVICE: be calm and confident in your skills. This place is REALLY nothing to be nervous about because the people interviewing you don't care about you. Seriously.

    Negotiation Details
    What negotiation? They can't afford to pay you anything decent probably because of all of the lawsuits they are dealing with. If you are entry level, you will be paid on the lower scale of 40-45k. If you have some experience you will be paid in the middle of the scale of 45-50k. And then...you will stay there for a very very long time. Bonuses = garbage.
