    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.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Towers Watson (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I saw the position on a job board and applied on the company website. I received an email over a week later to schedule an interview by phone.

    The phone interview was with two people and was not particularly difficult. Following the interview I was told that HR would follow-up with me two weeks later, after the remainder of first round interviews.

    HR called when they indicated they would, but I was working and could not answer the phone. A voice mail was left indicating that they would call back within two business days, but when they did not call I called them, left a voice message and never received a reply again until 2 months later saying:

    "My sincerest apologies for not getting back to you sooner. Unfortunately, we have not been able to reach each other by phone.
    I received the feedback on your interview a while ago. Although they were very positive and would definitely see a role fit, they have chosen a local candidate with the same fit.

    Thank you for applying and please keep an eye on our website for future possibilities."

    I will not be applying to this company again.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Towers Watson (Denver, CO) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview that I had was a panel type interview. The first panel was composed of what would be my co-workers. After I passed that three person panel I then had an interview, immediatly afterward, with the associates. This was also a three person panel. Following that I finaly had a panel interview with the head of the department and his two juniors. The entire interview took more than three hours. Even though that seems long, it was one of the smoothest most well organized interviews on which I have ever been.
