    Interview

    1st interview phone screening. 2nd interview in person one-on-one with manager. Very standard questions. 3rd interview with panel of people, who kept bringing up an entirely different position, that lasted for over two hours. Then I got a generic rejection EMAIL. I've *never* received an email rejection after a face-to-face interview. Let alone after several interviews. I can easily accept not getting the position, but I did expect at least a phone call.. Real class act.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I filled out the application in mid-March and was sent the Wonderlic assessment a few weeks later. Once it was determined that I met the qualifications on my Wonderlic, I received an email stating I was being scheduled for a phone interview in April. I didn't actually receive the phone call until May, but it will definitely keep you on your toes on anticipation. Once I got the call I interviewed with a branch manager who was really extremely pleasant, any question that I didn't understand she gave me an example of what she meant. There were a lot of situational questions, "tell me about a time..." Overall the phone interview was concise but relaxed/professional. She gave me immediate feedback and was very thorough in her explanation of the position. She let me know right away that I would be coming in the following week for my in-person interview. The next week I received a phone call from another branch manager to schedule me for the in person. When I arrived I was met promptly by the branch manager who immediately made me feel welcomed, he smiled and was very warm. The process started with me re-taking the Wonderlic, I assume to ensure that you didn't cheat on the one you took at home. I breezed through it and then began my three personal panel interview, led by the lead branch manager. It was much again the situational what would you do type questions, some of them the same as phone interview but most of them different. I did notice that your responses are scaled. At the end I was given a sheet that asked my proficiency in different functions of Microsoft Word and Excel, then told the next step in the process is to undergo a background screening and then offer letters would mailed out from there. I am currently awaiting the results of my background screening.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. (Miami, FL).

    Interview

    The interview process was very unprofessional. I first received a random phone call from a manager whom immediately began interviewing me via phone. The manager developed an interest and requested to see me in person. I later met with the manager and a Client. The mood in the room was very blain and lackluster. Some of the questions asked by the Client seemed to stir away from the actual job title and responsibilities. I wish I had read Glassdoor's reviews on this company to prepare me for this debacle. On a good note, the employees seemed very nice and welcoming.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. (San Francisco, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very disorganized - they rescheduled a few times. I worked with a Recruiter and I met with them 2 separate times. After meeting with the leaders I followed up and there was no feedback to me or the Recruiter. Two months later they said they had decided to take the position in another direction
