    Assistant Client Service Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Willis.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the Assistant Client Service Specialist (Chicago) position online at willis.com. A Senior Vice President & Chief Administrative Officer from the Chicago office contacted me directly to schedule an in-person interview. I interviewed with three people (the Senior Vice President & Chief Administrative Officer who initially contacted me, a Chief Administrative Officer, and a Senior Vice President & Director of Operations - Risk Solutions & Risk Specialties). I was interviewed separately by each person. The interviews took a total of 1 1/2 hours. The questions were typical. The interviews were conversational and relaxed in tone. I was advised a decision would be made within a week. I followed up with a call at one week to the person who initially scheduled my interview. She sounded very stressed and indicated she would call me and let me know. I should note she had also sounded very stressed when she left an initial message for me regarding scheduling an interview. I get the impression she is overworked. I waited another two weeks after my follow-up call and since I had not heard back, I followed up with an email to all three interviewers. Four days after I sent my email, I received a call from Human Resources in Nashville, Tennessee, indicating I had not been selected for the position. I asked if there was any feedback he could provide me with, but he did not show anything in the system other than I had not been selected. He strongly encouraged me to continue checking their website and apply for any positions I am interested in that become available.

    Interview Questions
    • None. Questions were standard interview questions. Many of the same basic questions were asked three different times in three slightly different ways by the three interviewers.   Answer Question

    Client Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Willis in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I discovered the position on LinkedIn and applied via website. I was contacted via email by a recruiter about 2 days later. Completed initial phone interview with recruiter (about 25 minutes or so) and she advised me I'd hear back by end of the week. By the end of the week I was told I made it to a phone interview with the hiring manager. Very informal, conversational interview and lasted about 45 minutes. From there, the hiring manager invited me to dinner the following week to further our discussion about the position. After the dinner the hiring manager said I can expect to hear back by the end of the week. I thought I completed the interview process, but was thrown a curve ball because then the hiring managers boss emailed me to schedule a phone interview. This interview was more formal, structured, and lots of behavioral style interview questions were asked. Two days later I got a call saying they wanted to extend me an offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Willis.

    Interview Details

    Went on 4-6 interviews with 8-10 individuals for an entry level position and they dragged me allowed for a few months and never got back to me. They never officially called me to tell me that I did not get the position. All of the interviews were formal and we discussed the same topics over and over. I was at a point where they knew everything about me and still dragged me in for more interviews.

    US Global Real Estate Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Application Details

    The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Willis.

    Interview Details

    The process was very frustrating, as Willis was entirely non communicative during the entire process. I had good information on who the hiring manager was, sent emails and postal letters twice over a 60 day period, and never once received a response. I met the job qualifications to a 'T.' The only response from Willis came 5 months after my initial submission indicating that someone else had been chosen for the position.
