    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I experienced wonderful communication right off the bat from the hiring manager. I did a phone interview and was told the recruiting process up front with clear timelines. All ran smoothly and I was updated on progress as time passed until I was hired. The onboarding was painless and most done before you start.

    Account Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 interviews at this company. It appeared to be a small subsidiary of a larger company which had a lot of promise. The interviews were short and rushed. The first interview was with the hiring manager which kept her word by getting back to me after the interview. The 2nd interview was first with the hiring manager and then with her boss. The 2nd interviewer was not to inviting and again the interview process was rushed. I was told that I would receive a response by the end of that week to no avail. 2 weeks later, I sent a follow up email and received no response and no regret letter. Very unprofessional.

    Claims Representative Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial phone interview, which involved a lot of "tell me a time when thus and such happened and how you reacted" type questions. They sent me an online aptitude test to take. It was pretty much an easier version of the SAT or GRE. The questions involved basic math and vocabulary. A few weeks later they called me and asked me to come in for an in-person interview. They asked a number of the same questions that were asked in the phone interview. Again it was mostly "what would you do/what did you do" type questions. After about a week they contacted me via email and asked me to verify the details of my online application so that they could give my information to the company that does their background checks. The background check company emailed me and had me give them seven years worth of work history, including company contact information, supervisors, and salaries. After my background check came back clean, HR called me with a job offer and then sent an email with specific job offer details.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't any curve ball questions. Be prepared to answer questions like, "Tell us about a time you had to solve a difficult problem/how you reacted to criticism/how you prioritize to get everything done."   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I made no negotiations. I was content with the offer as it was.

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co..

    Interview Details

    Applied through indeed.com and received an email to take an assessment. I did ok on assessment and moved on to a phone interview the following week. After doing well on the phone interview, I was invited for an in person interview which you take the assessments again. You only have the in person interview if you pass the assessment. Passed the assessment and moved onto interview. Find out a couple days later, I made it to the background check phase, if you make it this far they are definitely considering you, but it does not mean you got the job. A few weeks passed and I was offered the position and accepted.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co..

    Interview Details

    First spoke with the talent acquisition specialist who laid down the foundation of the company, and where the company was headed. Then spoke with both the Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable supervisors who provided more detailed information about what the position would entail, including a general overview of the processes. Overall, the meeting was very laid back and general, where they provided me with more information then they did questions.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process was pretty smooth. I was contacted by the head recruiter to schedule an interview and the process was seamless from that point going forward. I had 3 interviews with 2 AJG employees in each interview. Following the interview, I was contacted within a week or so with notice that I had been offered the position.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I was unable to negotiate and they gave me a rather small amount of time to accept or decline the offer which I felt was overbearing for a decision carrying so much weight.
