Application

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Aon Hewitt.

Interview

Interview process wasn't that difficult. You show up with a bunch of other people. You take a simple skills assessment. Then ask you back for a 1:1 interview. However, they don't hire like that anymore. I think a lot has changed.

    Interview

    There was one interview by a couple of people on the client that considered hiring me. They ask scenario questions whose purpose is to determine if the applicant has very strong logical, analytical, problem solving thinking skills. This is the most valuable asset as their systems are proprietary. They want to know if the applicant can think well enough to learn quickly, solve problems, and produce results efficiently and effectively.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain a very hard problem you had and how you solved it. Explain how you came to the solution and why you felt it was the best solution.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Ask for more than your lowest acceptable salary so that you have wiggle room in negotiations.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Aon Hewitt in March 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter on March 8th, Interviewed on March 21st and was in limbo for 8 weeks waiting to hear back about their decision. The process seemed really disorganized and was frustrating. The recruiter contacted me via email and set up a phone call. The recruiter called about 20 minutes late, no apologies. After she talked to me she decided that I would be a good candidate for several jobs and wanted to set me up with interviews right away. 3 weeks later, I was scheduled for an interview. The face-to-face interview was with 2 managers and one manager on the phone. The managers were friendly but seemed a little nervous and they asked so many questions that seemed really generic for such a niche job. It was like they wanted details on my skillset but didn't know how to ask the questions or what questions to ask. They stressed that they had to have perfection in the job and would accept nothing less - that put me off a little bit. I don't need that kind of stress. I left the interview feeling confused about whether I wanted to work there. I was asked to follow up with the recruiter after the interview and did. She said the managers said interview went well and that I would be hearing from her soon. She contacted me again in mid-April just to make sure I was still interested. I finally contacted her again on May 30th to see what was going on and she told me she forgot to tell me they had selected another candidate. I thought that was very unprofessional and my perception of the company is that they are poorly organized and I'm not sure if I would give up my job for them.
