    The process was extremely fast and easy. There were 2 rounds in addition to the phone interview with the staffing agency. Overall, it was a very smooth and fast process. The hiring manager was straight to the point and within 2 days, I had an offer in my hand.

    Project Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies (Chicago, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter to set up a phone interview. Surprisingly, the interview was scheduled for 8 am. This worked for me, but it seemed unusually early. I spoke with two women, both of whom were Senior Project Managers who had been with the company for 17 years. One took the lead and asked me a variety of textbook questions, mainly about my background. She seemed pleasant enough, if a little stale. The other was borderline abrasive, seeming uninterested in the call right from the start and asking/saying some pointed questions/observations, such as: - "Why would you leave San Francisco, where you had a job, to move to Chicago, where you don't have a job?" Her intonation suggested that she either thought this was a stupid decision or didn't believe me when I said that I had left my former company voluntarily. (I had also addressed the move in my opening summary about myself, clearly explaining that I had left SF due to high cost of living and my fiancee wanting to be closer to her family in the Mdwest) - "This position would deal with projects that are far more complex than those you managed in your last role." Her tone suggested that I somehow wasn't up to the challenge. (This was after I had explained that I was looking to get into a project management role with more complex projects, as I found my previous position unchallenging. Additionally, the job description only required one year of project management experience, so they clearly aren't looking for a senior candidate) - I asked about the team structure, adding that I assumed that I would be reporting to a project manager. She replied that I was "incorrect", and then preceded to repeat the summary of the job's responsibilities. She never actually discussed the team structure. The call lasted about 25 minutes and left me wishing I hadn't bothered with the interview. Based on the disdain I sensed from the second woman, I can't imagine I'll be invited to an in-person interview, but if by some chance I do, I'll probably turn it down; I wouldn't want to work at a company that saw leadership potential in this woman, let alone deal with her on a day-to-day basis. Neither woman seemed particularly passionate either (especially the second), which isn't a good sign for the company's culture.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies.

    Interview

    Interview was strange and a first for me. I used an App on my phone to record myself answering interview questions. I didn't care much for this. I love technology but this was very awkward. Later I received a phone call about the salary that I requested. She said that they couldn't give me what I was asking but that they thought their benefits would compensate. I agreed to meet with the management in Louisville who was on vacation. Next thing I know/ I received an email saying that they went with other candidates.

Must have industry experience &/or have contacts otherwise they feel it isn't a good fit regardless of what the job postings say. They missed a good one.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was via HireVue. Once you receive the invitation you have 48 hours to complete it otherwise it will expire. They give you ample opportunities to take a practice exam before you begin the actual interview. Once you start the interview you get a 30 second prep time before the actual recording begins. Once you start recording that's it! You can not make any changes what you say or do in front of the webcam will be submitted. This was my first video recording interview and it was a smooth process less than 10 minutes. I just took the interview so I am not sure if I will get an offer or not.
