Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Towers Watson in April 2014.

Interview Details – The process was long but worth it. It took about 3 months from the time I applied for the job on their website to the time I got the in person interview. I think this is because they are currently doing lots of hiring. It was very much worth the wait. The people I met were great and I enjoyed speaking to and meeting each of them.

Interview Question – None of the questions were too difficult. They all related to the job I was applying for. They wanted to find out what I would do in a given situation etc. It was a very comfortable process. I felt like I could relax and be myself.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation needed. They made me a great offer and I took it.

Health and Group Benefits Interview

Health and Group Benefits

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Towers Watson.

Interview Details – Applied via campus recruiting. Had a first round interview with a woman who was incredibly dry to talk to and showed no emotion. She also didn't work in the particular division I was applying to, so wasn't helpful in answering my questions. From what I gathered, the day-to-day work seems a bit boring (just a bunch of Excel)

Interview Question – Typical behavioral questions: why TW, why consulting, etc.   Answer Question
