Senior Claims Examiner Interview

Senior Claims Examiner

I applied in-person and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co..

Interview Details – Nothing much out of the ordinary, but it was kind of on the unprofessional side, with a lot of humor displayed by the interviewer, no eye contact, and it just seemed not to flow well. Possibly the interviewer lacked good interviewing skills. They were pretty laid back, which unfortunately made it a little unclear how you ranked in their process.

SharePoint Administrator Interview

SharePoint Administrator
Itasca, IL

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. in November 2012.

Interview Details – Interview process was very difficult. A really pushy assistant asked me irrelevant questions and made me feel very uncomfortable. Hiring director was great. Had good vision for the company's SharePoint environment. A lot of interviews turned into more interviews and then I got a call that the assistant didn't like my answers so they were passing on me.

Interview Question – Asked me some difficult scenario questions.   Answer Question

Health Benefits Consultant Interview

Health Benefits Consultant

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. in September 2011.

Interview Details – Applied through recruiter and heard from the hiring manager the next day. I schedules and interview for the following morning. I was called the afternoon after my first interview to meet the Vice President. Then I was asked to come in for an Excel test. After that I didn't hear anything. When attempting to e-mail the hiring manager I was ignored and only got a response after e-mailing the Vice President. Then I never heard from them again. I resented the fact that they wouldn't keep me in formed after I visited their office three times, and would not consider working for the company in the future.

Interview Question – Very basic questions about your work preferences. There was nothing technical.   Answer Question
