I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co..
I applied online and was also referred by a current employee. I was contacted by email to set up an interview. It was a one on one interview in a large conference room. I was asked most of the normal interview questions. Strengths and weaknesses, responsibilities at current job, etc.

Intimidating- I interviewed 3 times for 3 different positions. Each time is intimidating with at least 2-3 supervisors eyeing you down. Practice in the mirror, slow down & smile. Now a days they give a commercial insurance test... there is no faking it either you'll know the basic p&c questions or you won't. Lastly- it's all about who you know. If a referral recommended you, play that referral throughout the entire interview. They recommend I work here, I've heard nothing but phenomenal things from her/him...
- Please give an example of a stressful client situation and how you handled it? Think: I brought them from ^ to - and here's how. If you had to describe yourself in one word, what would it be? Think: "Commitment to Quality" Tell me about yourself. Think: Team, attentive to detail, time management, can handle 100+ e-mails a day. Answer Question

It consisted of an on campus interview and an onsite interview the first last 30-45 and second was about an hour. The second was a large group of about 8 different higher up individuals that made it a little intimidating. I met the people in the first interview previously at a career fair so it was much more laid back.
- They asked me why I had not liked some of the previous experiences that I had. Answer Question

They will not ask you anything that is written on your resume. They simply want to understand if you can make a cold call, if you are good at networking, and do you have what it takes to sell insurance.

Submit an application online. Wait a few weeks and then receive a phone call for a phone interview. After awhile they called me back and invited me into the office for a more formal in person interview. Talked to 5 guys around the office. It took about 3 hours.

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.

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. (Itasca, IL) in June 2015.
Pleasant. Everyone I met was nice. They spoke highly of the company and they clearly communicated they enjoyed what they did. Provided a lot of insight into the position which is what i was looking for. All my questions were answered and I did not feel like i was rushed. Follow up after that point did take awhile.
