Summer TRAC Interview

Summer TRAC
New York, NY

I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies in March 2013.

Interview Details – Phone interview was basic fit and behavioral questions. Interviewer was incredibly friendly. It started with the interviewer giving me a walkthrough about what the Summer TRAC program is, and what I would be doing as an intern. No technical questions; interview was about 45 min long. Most of the time was spent with me asking her questions about the company.

Interview Question – All questions were "tell me about a time when.."   Answer Question

Advisory Specialist Interview

Advisory Specialist
Dallas, TX

I applied online - interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies in January 2013.

Interview Details – Submitted application online. Received an email requesting time for a phone interview which was scheduled and completed within a week. Nothing difficult about the phone screen, straight forward questions about my background. A few days later I received another email requesting when I might be available for in office interview. This was agreed upon in a few days giving me a week before my scheduled meeting. My interview was scheduled from 1:00 to 2:45 with meetings with 4 different people. I was greeted upon arrival and was personally guided by same girl from meeting to meeting. I met with head of department as well as immediate team members. I was supposed to meet with the local HR Director but there was a conflict and she was not able to see me. As in the phone interview, the questions asked by all persons were pretty much straight forward. Everyone was engaging and professional. I enjoyed the visit. It was just a few days before I got a call for HR in discussing an offer.

Interview Question – The following was included my resume Executive Summary "Forward-thinking leader .......". I had my resume professionally written and those words were not mine. My interviewer as me was if meant by forward-thinking leader. I was not prepared for that one. Moral of the story is if you have professional help writing your resume, be sure you agree and can explain everything the writer includes. I fumbled on answering with a stammering about how much more productive it is than going backward....................UGH!   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – because they did not offer Advisory Specialist job in Dallas siting a weekness in customer interface (I was coming from a wholesale underwritering background) but alternately thought I would be better suited for a Broker Placement role. This might have been acceptable except the position was not in Dallas but 4 1/2 hours down the highway in Houston. The job did not excite me enough to relocate (I have a 3000sf home and LOTS of stuff).

Credit Analyst Interview

Credit Analyst
New York, NY

The process took 2 months - interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies in November 2009.

Interview Details – Interview process was relatively straight forward. First was a screening/very preliminary phone interview with HR that acted more like a buffer to make sure you were at a minimum competent enough to answer a phone professionally and set up in-person interviews. Then, once I set up the in-person interviews I met with 3 senior members of the team and was on my way. I was then brought back 2-3 weeks later and interviewed with 2 young members to ensure there was a good personality fit. The interview was more about experience and how would handle the everyday grind of office work that often resulted in adding to sales/business retention presentations/demonstrations.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – I was offered a higher salary than my current and was coming in with no relevant experience. I had no bargaining chips.
