    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Towers Watson (Denver, CO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had a screening phone interview that ran short. I had a list of questions to ask the hiring manager that I didn't get to ask. She began asking questions about my graduate degree research (which is directly relevant to the position) but stopped the interview without asking additional questions.

    The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Towers Watson.

    Interview

    Process consisted began with one on-campus interview. Deliberation took roughly a month before being moved on to second round held at local offices a month after confirmation of advancement. The second round interview session consisted of 2 phone interviews, 4 in-person interviews, and 1 group luncheon with 3 interviewers and all the applicants. Overall I found this process to be very informative regarding the company and the job requirements.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I 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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Towers Watson.

    Interview

    I bypassed the on-campus interviews and went straight to an on-site interview. It took around a few weeks for them to actually schedule an interview date for me. After the interview, I had a final phone interview the week after. I heard back in about 2.5 weeks from the initial on-site interview. The interview seemed to go very well but unfortunately, they had many applicants for one slot.

    Interview Questions

    • Many of the questions were standard behavioral. They typically have a set of questions that they ask. They'll ask about 1 or 2 of them and then stray off with questions of their own.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I 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.
