- Accepted Offer
There was an initial phone screen done by the recruiter. Based on the conversation, an on-site interview was scheduled. At the site, I met with three different people for 30 minutes each were they asked mostly behavioral questions and one or two questions about information listed on your resume.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Aon (Charlotte, NC) in October 2014.
Initial phone interview was about 45 minutes, with the recruiter. Two days later, I received an invitation for a second phone interview with the hiring manager. If selected, the next steps will be an in person interview with the team executive. Both interviews were more like conversations and not drills.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aon (Ithaca, NY) in October 2014.
Applied through career services at my college and found out that I would have an on-campus about two weeks after applying, with about one week before the interview took place. The interview was 30 minutes long and entirely behavioral. The interviewer essentially looked through my resume and asked me questions, and I would elaborate and talk about my experiences. The interviewer was extremely friendly and very engaged. The only problem I had with the format of the interview is that it didn't allow me any opportunity to showcase my skills beyond what was on my resume. I'm not sure how the interviewer really was able to differentiate between the best candidates through this interview. As a result, I was not invited for a final round interview.
- No difficult or surprising questions as the interview was entirely behavorial and based off of my resume and experiences Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Aon.
Very interactive, friendly, with good rapport and to me non-stressful. I connected well with the hiring manager. It quickly appeared that I had everything they were looking to satisfy the job requirements and many extras I had to offer and "bring to the table".
- It was a very positive interview with no surprises. I connected very well with the hiring manager. Answer Question

I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Aon.
Long process, but worth it. Several calls were made, and a couple interviews. Interviewed with several people in one day. Manager that was supposed to interview was called away fro a trip but it worked out.
- Most of the questions were expected, especially looking back. Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Aon (Little Rock, AR) in September 2014.
The Onboarding by HireRight was insanely difficult and laborious. Almost a turnoff to the role and company. They finally had to resort to reviewing my old w-2's to verify I wasn't a liar. I was put off a bit but ultimately, understood.
- We essentially have 2 distinct Sourcing roles; which would interest you more given your experiences and diverse industry background? 1 Answer

I applied online. I interviewed at Aon.
Quick and simple process. I met with HR on the first round after a brief phone interview, and then second round of interview was a casual meeting with the CFO, which was not an actual interview. I was then offered the job, which I accepted.
Helpful (3)Declined OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Aon in August 2014.
If you are somewhat smart or talented, do not apply for this company, they are just crap. HR is the most unprofessional and low intelligent people I've ever dealt with. I was interviewing for a consultant position, had phone screen, in person and intelligence test. Did well on all of them, and then after I received the offer, the salary they gave me is less than what I was paid 3 years ago. So, they didn't even screen me for salary requirements, went through all this process only to find out they couldn't compensate. HR was even embarrassed when they realized they didn't screen. Normally HR is a reflection of the overall firm. When HR is this bad, you can make judgement on the quality of overall firm.

Reasons for Declining
HR is unprofessional and low intelligent. Extremely poor reflection of overall comapny

Standard panel interview with behavioral questions.

Helpful (4)No OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Aon.
Applied online and received a phone call from a recruiter at their HR department a few days later. Upon speaking with this person, I was asked the basic/average interview/screening type of questions. After the 15 minute conversation, she stated that she would recommend me to the hiring manager at the office. A few days later, I received another email from someone different in HR to set up an interview day/time with the hiring managers. The day they scheduled was about 2-3 days out, and from my understanding, there were other candidates interviewing the same day with other "assessors".
- The questions were as expected- nothing out of the ordinary. Answer Question

Benefits like 401(k) matching, health insurance, tuition reimbursement, PTO (personal holidays, vacation, sick), ref incentives, etc. And all the benefits start from day 1! Managers are approachable, my team is considered large and I honestly feel privileged to have all of them as co-workers. Everyone is very supportive and truly strive for personal and professional growth. The job itself can be stressful, but when you have a great team like I do everything just seems fantastic! I honestly can't describe how much I like and appreciate my job, I'm a critical thinker and my position requires just that from me on a daily basis. With that said, I feel right at home every day. Glad to be part of the team.” – Full Review
