    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Marsh (Houston, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straightforward and simple. The first round consisted of easy, common behavioral questions with a senior vice president from one of the sectors. Then the second round consisted of 3 back to back, 30 minute interviews. Two interviews with senior vice presidents, and the third interview with an HR employee. Overall experience is that it was easy. Just know your resume, and be able to explain what you have done, and the outcomes.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Marsh (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    It was not a fun process, but what process is? Was asked why I wanted to be in insurance, what drove me there, and why I would be a good candidate. There were a couple of rounds but again, not that hard overall.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Marsh (Las Vegas, NV) in May 2015.

    Interview

    4-person panel interview. Interviewers were all very nice, relaxed, funny and explained that they understand this process can be unsettling. We had a great conversation, even though many of the formal interview questions contain several parts within one question and require the candidate to use critical thinking skills, along with professional background experience from which to draw.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Marsh (São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The process was conducted in a bad way, the HR seemed to be disorganized and the HR analyst lied to me many times. They also have never given me an answer about the result of the hiring process. I got extremely disappointed with Marsh, which was a company I used to admire.

    Summer TRAC Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Marsh.

    Interview

    Applied through my university's career website. Sent cover letter to HR team in New York who forwarded it to local University Relations team. In several weeks, received request for on-campus interview. Interviewed with senior vice president, who asked several technical questions about my previous internship experience, then proceeded to discuss lighter topics such as sports and my university (which the SVP also attended). About a week later, received invitation for final interviews in downtown office. Final interview day began early with a very informal briefing of what to expect with a Campus Recruiting specialist, followed by the actual interviews. Four candidates were brought in that day and each of us was put in a separate room. Four interviewers rotated between all four rooms, one visit from each interviewer to each candidate. My first three interviewers were VPs who asked moderately difficult behavioral questions, but were easy to socialize with, two in particular because they had graduated from the same university as me and knew many of the same people in the industry. The fourth interview was by far the most difficult, as the interviewer was an HR professional (in fact, the person who developed the TRAC program as I understand it) and asked very subjective and abstract questions. I felt that the order of my interviews put me at a disadvantage to the other candidates, because I was the person who was theoretically the most fatigued during my interview with the HR professional. However, I was told that all four of the interviewers would have some say in the decision, and to the best of my knowledge I was the only person who received an offer from that interviewing day. After the round of interviews, all of the candidates were taken to a conference room to have refreshments and ask questions to current full-time TRAC Associates (This is a two-year rotational and formal training program which is the entry-level job upon completion of an internship). We were advised that this Q&A session would have no bearing on our interview decision, so we were free to ask anything we wanted without fear of consequences. After that session, the Campus Recruiting specialist told us that a decision would be made by the weekend (this interview day had been on a Thursday). I received a call the next day from the Campus Recruiting specialist asking how I thought the interview process went and informing me that I was being extended an offer.
