    Billing Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co..

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with this company on two separate occasions. Once in 2012 and again in 2014.
    The first was with a few high level individuals who were less than friendly and ultimately I was not offered the job. Again in 2014 I was working with an employment agency - Accounting Principals, who coordinated another interview with a new group of management. When I mentioned to the agency I had previously interviewed with the company, I was advised not to mention this during this interview???? I proceeded to interview with a Billing Manager & Supervisor, who were not too friendly or polite either. They both were drinking water, but didn't show me the courtesy of offering me anything. I really felt like the Manager was questioning everything on my resume as if she thought I was lying. Afterward, according to the Recruiter, the Manager said she thought my experience was only with automated billings rather than manual billings and she had her doubts.
    Oddly enough they asked me back for a second interview with the same Manager and another Supervisor (not sure why I agreed). I didn't feel positive or pleasant experience this time either. The Manager was actually yawning while I was talking to her.
    I was unable to ask many questions of my own since the agency Recruiter was knocking on the door shortly after each interview began RUDELY indicating the interview time was up. The Recruiter even referred to it as "speed interviewing".
    I was not offered a job after this go around either, but I can' say I'm upset about it. I feel like I dodged that bullet!
    This company is really scary. All you have to do on any given day of any year is look at the company's job postings for Billing, A/R, A/P, including Managers, etc. continuously peppered on the internet job boards to see the company has a seriously high turnover rate. Not to mention, 9 out of 10 calls I have ever received from recruiters for these types of roles is for positions with this company. What a joke!

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had one first round phone interview that was pretty straightforward. Mostly consisted of behavioral questions and questions about my resume. They also asked why AJG and why I was interested in sales. I then had a final round interview at the Itasca, IL headquarters. This consisted of three back to back 2on1 interviews. Really nice people who generally wanted to learn about you as a person and see if you would be a strong fit with Gallagher. Asked a few random questions, but nothing to panic about. Know about the company, and have a genuine strong interest in the industry.

    The process was efficient and very clear in their instructions. The interviewers were nice, but also tough. They really seek out great salespeople. Some of the questions are challenging, but just be confident, and you're fine. Make sure to do your research and know how to sell, and be ready to interview as a salesperson.

    Network Operations Center Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Itasca, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Itasca, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co..

    Interview Details

    Initial technical phone screening, where your strengths are (network or systems), previous experiences, what tools they use and whether you have used them and to what extent

    In person interview with supervisors mirrored the phone interview a bit, in person also included meeting with the NOC manager, and Operations Director.

    The manager interview was more so on the culture of the NOC group, where you see yourself, what can you bring to the group.

    Interview with Director was refreshing for me since I have yet to interact with a Director- was able to get his experiences, and where he would like to see the group grow, what hurdles they have lept to get the NOC running.

    Overall the interviewing was easy...if you have a grasp on basic networking, understanding of network components, servers/systems, and have work in an enterprise environment, have basic interpersonal skills you should be fine.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation phase other than start date, since this was a contract position, hourly wage was discussed before interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed 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

    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.
