    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Towers Watson.

    Interview

    I came in for a full day interview and everyone was incredibly nice. The day started out with an introduction to the interviewees about TW, was followed by multiple interviews, and then a very nice lunch. Although I originally thought the experience was going to be very long (as it was multiple hours), it was actually as enjoyable as an interview day can be.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Towers Watson.

    Interview

    I applied online and then got asked for a phone interview. After the phone interview, they asked me to come to their office to have an in person interview. These people are very nice and will try to place you within the company. They will recognize if you do or do not want the job, so bullshitting is going to get you nowhere.

    Interview

    Process took about 3 weeks. Was called and I did a phone interview with very basic questions about my resume and the like. Was to asked to do on site interviews a few weeks later. Interview set-up was just 3 30 mintue sit downs with upper level people within the company. Half the time they asked me questions situation and behavioral that are typical. The other half, I was allowed to ask questions, and I had to fill up the time with what I asked. The interviews were followed by an hour lunch with some newer employees that was very informal. In the interviews be sure to know the difference between consulting and insurance actuaries.

    Interview

    I applied on the school career center and got the on campus interview. It was a thirty-minute interview. Most of the questions are behavioral questions. It was like a conversation. But I found that they are not interested in sophomores. There was no reply after the interview to inform you the result.

    Interview

    Long, tedious, you'll have to wait at least 2-3 Months to get any answer, by that time you've moved on, HR is useless.

    You'll have a phone interview, with basic questions, you move on to 2-3 interviews, with 2-3 people asking the same repetitive questions. There is no knowledge or skills with the interviewers.
