    Interview Details

    Had one 30 minute phone interview asking basic behavioral questions. There were no technical questions asked and there was no case style interview for the first round interview. Overall, they seemed most interested in your interest in the company and industry and how your relevant experience made you a qualified candidate.

    Interview Details

    Group interview. Took 4 rounds and each had 2 people. Basic questions about yourself and behavioral questions. The recruiters were nice and not harsh. They all understand that people don't always recognize their potentials. You need to know the company and why you think you can stand out.

    Senior Health and Benefits Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral - interviewed at Mercer Health & Benefits in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications came from the office leader. He requested I fill out the online resume for a specific posted position. I then spoke with a Mercer recruiter. She set up a phone interview with the main person in the office in charge of vetting interview candidates. After that I was invited for an office visit. I interviewed with two Associates and a Principal, and then met the Senior Associate who preformed my phone interview. It took a great deal of time to hear back on whether or not I had gotten the position. I was finally called by the recruiter to complete paperwork and preform my background check. The whole process took approximately 4-6 months until my start date.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question I received was if I planned on attending Grad School. It seemed a little like a trick question... 1. Did I value continuing education or 2. Did I plan on leaving them in the future?   Answer Question
