    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co..

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university's career portal. Got a response within a few days. First interview was 30 min over the phone. Basic questions regarding my resume and why I wanted to work at Gallagher. Immediately got invited to interview at office location. That interview took 90 minutes (30 min for each interviewer). All were easy to talk to and seemed very smart. One did not ask me a thing about my resume but rather hosted a conversation about the industry and asked me a few strange questions. Overall warm welcoming into the office and the people seemed like they would be great colleagues.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    Interview Details

    Nice people. Everything went smooth. Had two one-on-one interviews within a week of each other. Simple interview questions. No behavioral questions asked. They seemed to appreciate me jumping in and telling them about myself rather than the traditional interview setting. In the 2nd interview, I was given a contingent offer as long a my background cleared. Background was complete the next business day. Received a call from HR with an offer 1 week after background cleared.
