Difficult Interview

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.

Service Desk Analyst Interview

Service Desk Analyst
Louisville, KY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies in January 2011.

Interview Details – My interview was far from technical, but I had a resume full of certifications. My interview was the standard, "give me an example of how you handle a disagreement with a supervisor?" type questions.

Since then I belive they have added a small technical test, seeing how you manage finding problems with a pc that has been purposely misconfigured.

Interview Question – Standard questions, about describing how you would approach situations. "describe a time when you worked on a project you were unfamiliar with?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I asked for more money than they offered, they said they would need to think about it, and they accepted.

Analyst Interview

Analyst
Hoboken, NJ

I applied online and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies in February 2012.

Interview Details – Applied online, received a call from HR. Initial phone interview was basic walk through of resume and then provided information of the position. I was then invited in for a group interview. Very friendly atmosphere. A few weeks later I had another interview with manager, big difference from the first interviews. She was rude and did not seem to know what was going on. Everything she said contradicted previous interviews in regards to the position and where they were in the hiring process. After the call I never heard anything which, judging by the impression I got from the hiring manager, was a blessing.

Insurance Broker Interview

Insurance Broker
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies in January 2012.

Interview Details – The first interview was very generally, practically a meet and greet. The second interview was more of meeting with the related team members (including the department head) the see how I would mesh with the related department and business related matters. It was stated that a call would be coming within a two weeks. Depending on each department and the complexity of the work involved, I would imagine that the interview process will vary.
