    It was a campus recruitment. Only one manager interviewed me and she was very kind. She explained the programs very detailedly. And I saw she read my resume very carefully and ask a lot of questions about myself. I sent a thank you note after the interview and got reply very quick.

    Assistant Client Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Willis (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Interview process was pretty scattered. It took about 6 months from first contact to being made an offer and I was asked to come in for five separate interviews. The interviews themselves varied in difficulty but they were very clearly trying to get to know me as a person to see if I'd fit in well wtih the group, instead of as a worker.

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Willis (Nashville, TN).

    Interview

    It was an overall bad and humiliating experience. It was so rushed that I felt like cattle being herded and shuffled through. I just felt like a number to them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Willis.

    Interview

    Process is quite lengthy and positions will often be put on hold. Company is not diverse in any manner there are absolutely NO minorities in the Nashville HR function, which shows the organization is not progressing towards diversity. Interviewers are somewhat unprofessional in look and their body language shows especially if you are articulate and a minority. I can definitely understand why the HR function is not as effective as it possibly could be.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Willis (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty lengthy. I applied for this position in the beginning of December and finally got an interview near the end of January, but then pushed 1 week later due to inclement weather. Met with the Service Delivery National Manager and Office Manager. They asked many questions. They want to know if you looked into the background and culture of Willis. They also wanted to get a feel for your personality and technical skills. I actually enjoyed the interview process more than any other interview I have been to before. It was easier to engage with the gentlemen. Even when they asked tough questions I was comfortable to speak with them and respond to most of their questions. At the end of the hour long interview, I was invited to come back for a second interview. One of the gentlemen even showed me around the office and all the different conference rooms they had. The second one did feel more intense. The first two gentlemen were there as well as the Team Lead and a Project Manager. They asked random questions about technology and scenarios. Mainly they wanted to know if you were honest about your answers. Some scenarios or questions you were actually suppose to answer "I don't know" because they are common things that not every professional knows. At the end of that hour long interview, I was given more of a tour of the office and the Team Lead gave me excellent insight on what the company is all about and showed me the server room, the office and staff that works with him (and the candidate) and explained to me the operations of support from every office nationally and internationally. I must say it was definitely a process where I thought they would hire me but in the end it did not luck out for me. I was still pleased with the individuals and the interview. I was myself at all times and don't regret it. I hope whichever candidate that they chose is reliable, loyal and technical as I am.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Willis (Chicago, IL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Made 1st contact with Willis at my school's career fair. Was able to talk to an employee currently going through the RMA program. I then applied online, 3 weeks later (on a Friday), I received an email and a phone call that I had made it to the next round (that Tuesday). The turn around was a little quick, but manageable. The next round consisted of a business case presentation one day. I had 90 minutes to prepare and 10 minutes to present. That night I got a call saying I was invited back for the final round. That consisted of 4 individual interviews with directors and hiring managers. These interviews were pretty casual, just asking about my experiences in the industry and within school.
