I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies in July 2014.
Invited me out to the hoboken office which was pretty cool coming from north jersey. Initially was contacted on the phone from their outside HR department which threw me off a little. Interviewed with a manager and another manager both seemed rushed and unhappy to be there due to the busy season.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies.
The hiring process can be lengthy but well worth it. I has 3 interviews, one by phone, the second one on one with the department manager and the last was with the department. I have to admit the interview with the department was very insightful as I was able to see the strong bond and relationships between the colleagues
- The unexpected questions were why I was leaving a particular company who was very popular for turnover and what my commitment was to the company I was currently interviewing with. Answer Question
The company worked with me met many of my requests. They were fair. Officer titles were kept, and salary negotiations went smoothly.

I applied to this position internally. From the time that I applied on their official website to the my interview was almost three months. After the interview, it was another month before they let me know that I had the position. If you are applying externally, the length of time will be about the same; however, you will also have to undergo a very basic background check.
- What makes you qualified for this position. 1 Answer
No negotiation, they offer you the position at a certain pay; take it or leave it.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies (New York, NY) in March 2014.
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.
