Document and Presentation Specialist Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Aon in April 2014.
Interview Details – Recruiting arm of the company called me to discuss salary requirements and skills required for the job. We discussed the requirements and a brief rundown of what was expected. First and Second interview were quickly after that. But then I didn't hear from them. Upon contacting the recruiter 3 weeks after my 2nd interview (twice) I was told they hadn't made a decision yet. It has now been 2 weeks SINCE that email and still no word. I'm assuming they went with a different candidate, which is fine, but I'm bothered by the lack of follow up from the recruiting arm. I thought everyone at the company I met with (about 8 people) were lovely and friendly, and the job seemed interesting and challenging, but I dissatisfied with the lack of communication from the Recruiter.
Interview Question – Questions were actually pretty straight forward, but given the nature of the job, the interviewing manager did give a small text to be sure you could handle what the job would entail (Use of MS Word), without too much hassle; and so that you'd understand the job fully. I thought this was a really good idea, and enjoyed doing it. Answer Question

Catastrophe Risk Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Aon in March 2014.
Interview Details – I found the position on my college website and also spoke with recrutiers at a career fair. They sent me an e-mail to confirm the interview and scheduled it a month ahead of time. The employees were really friendly but be prepared to be there for almost 4 hours. For me, there were 3 other people interviewing at the same time but do not worry- its not a group interview. What happens is that you have five different interview, each one with 2 or 3 people asking you questions. The questions were almost all behavioral which was pretty difficult.
Interview Question – -an example of when technology broke down and how you handled it
-an example of when you delegated tasks
-an example of when you disagreed and stood up for your beliefs
-example of when you bargained and what was your strategy
-tell me about yourself
-failure and how you handle criticism
-something about customer service
-example of when something went wrong in a project and how you handled it
-what happened if you realized that your data was incorrect and you had a strict deadline
-are you a leader or a follower
-time when you were stressed and handling multiple projects and technique when going through them
-tell me about a time when were was disagreement and how you handled it
-what other companies are you applying for
- how do you stay organized
-what would you have done differently in bargaining, any regrets?
-what would you do differently in customer service situation, any regrets?
-These are just a few examples so be more prepared with examples for every behavioral question you can think of Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Database Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Aon in March 2014.
Interview Details – One of the Head hunter in Chicago called sends me a message in LinkedIn. Ask me if i was interested for this position opened in Maryland. I was not in market since my current job need lot of drive so i said why not if its near to home. Then she sends me 10 questions including why you are looking for moving what is your current salary? how much salary will move you to Aon? what is your immigration status? weather if you need sponsorship in future? I filled in and send it to her. I didn't hear until next 10 days. After 10 days I was sent the same email asking same questions. I replied then she passes to one of the HR person who schedules half an hour phone conversation. Conversation was fantastic and he said at the end of conversation that you most likely will be scheduled for the in person interview. In couple of days I don't hear anything I sent him an email to check if he was moving ahead? He sets up with one of the lady who actually sent me an email after a week and calls me set up some time to have in-person interview. She was very slow responding the email and she finally sets up something within the week and try to see if i was available in one of those days. I was given short notice of 18 hours Thursday 6 PM they asked me if i was available for Friday 4-5 for interview which I said no i couldn't manage then they scheduled me on Monday. Monday Maryland saw the big snow. Most of the day we had the snow so i sent an email to check if the interview was still on @ 11 am. The lady didn't respond me until 2:30 and was trying to see if we can postponed to Wednesday. I asked her if the office is opened today I am ready to do today since i already took day off. she told me yes it could be done.
I got there 15 mins earlier to the slotted time. I was received very casually and there was no hi nothing. An Indian man shows up dressed very casual and walk me down to one of the conference room from stairs though they had elevators.There was no politeness and offering of any kind of drinks or even water. He was not interested to talk nor he was willing to discuss about the position and hear about me. Asked me couple of Database related questions. Ask me to write the code on the paper. Those were very simple question which i answered very well very generic question.
I was told there will be three interviewer but he was only one who interviewed me and he was uninterested while talking to me. he asked me if i have been in such situations kind of question so while I was responding if i give example of my past work related such situation then he used to make faces and cunning smile. He walk out twice during the interview and there was no formal ending of the interview someone comes in open the door and asks him something during the interview. Interview last about 40 mins of which 20 mins he leaves me alone in room and come back and forth. I don't hear back until a week and I asked one of the HR personnel if there is any updates for me he send me email after 2 days they are pursing other candidate.
Very Unprofessional, no common sense and no common etiquette appreciation or anything.
