    Talent Consulting Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Mercer in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied through Mercer's career page online as a college hire after being invited to an information session at their office. After applying, I received a call 2 months later asking me to come in for an interview. The on-site interview was 2 hours long, with four 30 minute behavioral interviews. Most questions revolved around my resume (education, how my previous experience relates to the job, etc.). One interviewer asked me common behavioral questions (tell me about a time when ...). I received a call two days later to take the writing test (I believe this is mainly for the communication practice). The test took me the entire 3 hours and it was very exhaustive.

    Interview Questions
    • No truly difficult questions. They are trying to figure out if you're a good fit for their organization.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They met my requested salary range. Not much negotiation needed since this was my top choice.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Mercer in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The lower level employees, who interviewed me were extremely knowledgeable, helpful and seemed to have a genuine interest in getting to know me. The executive, who interviewed did not even bring a pen to take notes. She did not even glance over my resume before sitting down for the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The difficult part was not the questions, but my inability to connect with the executive conducting my last interview. She seemed so uninterested that I left unsure of why I ever had an interview to begin with.   View Answer
