Difficult Interview

Insurance Specialist - Metro Casualty Advisory Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies in March 2014.

Interview Details – 3 wks. after applying via LinkedIn, received an afternoon e-mail scheduling a next morning phone screening interview. Face-to=face interviews were to begin the following week. Position was in NY, but interviewer was in Kentucky. Standard screening questions including "what kind of salary do you need?" The interviewer said that Marsh never includes salaries in job postings. She also made a remark about the cost of living in NYC, which led me to believe that the $50k-60k salary range that I suggested was too high. In addition, she mentioned, in response to my question, that they had a very large number or candidates. This gave me the impression that were in a position to be extremely selective.

Placement Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies in October 2012.

Interview Details – Multiple interviews with numerous collegues. My first interview I met with 8 different people in small groups (2 at a time). Based on my prior industry experience (12+ years) most of the questions were about getting to know me. I was invited back for a second interview with upper management level collegues. Similar to the first interview session as I met them in small groups and was mostly asked about my working style, challenges I've faced in the work environment, etc.

Interview Question – Describe the biggest challenge you faced in your prior job. How did you address and find resolution to the challenge.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation is through a 3rd party that Marsh uses for hiring and backround checks. The process was easy as they agreed to the terms I asked for. Conduct a backround check.

Producer Interview

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies.

Interview Question – They ask a lot of questions about everything, and expect a lot of questions in return.   Answer Question

Certificate Specialist Interview

Certificate Specialist
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies in October 2013.

Interview Details – Online assessments, then phone interview, lastly an in-person interview. I did have the option of a video interview, but asked for an an in-person interview because i had not yet unpacked and installed all of my electronic equipment and could not find my webcam at that time. No drug test, but they do perform a background check and verify your education.

Interview Question – all interview questions are behavioral based and begin with: "explain about a time when....", my interview was scheduled with 2 supervisors and then i interviewed with the department manager after (same day). I was not expecting to be asked, "where else have you applied and interviewed". That was the last question the department manager asked me.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – the pay was advertised as non-negotiable at $12.50 per hour and since i was currently unemployed, I accepted the job offer.
