    Average Interview

    Interview

    I applied to the Summer TRAC program through university recruiting. The first interview was with one person, and I found out after a few days that I made it to the second round of interviews. In the second round of interviews, four people interviewed me for about half an hour each. In both rounds of interviews, everyone was extremely personable and interested in telling me more about Marsh. Overall, the process of interviewing for the position was very positive, and I look forward to working at Marsh this summer.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    I had a very positive experience during the MARSH Summer TRAC Associate Interview process. During my time, my recruiter was incredibly helpful, and worked with me to ensure that I was as prepared for each meeting. My interviewers, both during the on campus interview portion, as well as the on site interview, were incredibly patient, understanding and wonderful to speak with. Contrary to popular belief, the MARSH interview process itself was more reminiscent of a captivating conversation, rather than a stress inducing experience. I saw my interview time as more of an opportunity to understand and speak with leaders of the insurance and risk management industry, and I was very delighted and humbled to have been extended an offer for the position.

    Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Overland Park, KS
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Marsh (Overland Park, KS) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a phone call from the Talent Acquisition team in New York. After a couple rounds of phone tag, we finally got connected and the phone screening was quick and to the point. She immediately sat up a time for an in person interview. I received great communication from that point forward from everyone involved. It was an extremely comfortable interview where I felt I could really be myself and also clearly speak to her questions. I then had a Skype interview with the VP of HR, and again extremely comfortable. Great conversation, and I got a real feel for how HR is lead. I then had a phone call with another HR Generalist to really get a feel for what I would be doing.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Marsh (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was kept well informed of my candidacy status. The process took longer than usual due to a restructure in my group, but the Marsh staff and HR team took great care to find a place where I would be the best fit.

    Summer TRAC Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Marsh (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The first thing Marsh asks you to do once you apply is send them a 'selfie video.' Basically, it is a set of questions that you answer by recording yourself. You do not get to redo your answers.

    My first interview was with a recruiter through an online video conference platform. At my interview time, I was having technical difficulties getting onto the site. The interviewer then called me and sent me a new link. Although we started the interview a bit later than planned, the interviewer gave me his full attention and did not attempt to cut the interview short. He was easy to talk to and was very understanding. He asked the basic questions, like "why Marsh?" and a few behavioral questions. Also, be prepared to give your preference for office location.

    The second interview was with senior managers from different practices at the office to which I was applying for a position. I was flown out to the city and put up in a hotel. The next day, I participated in the super day interview. I came into the office and there were 3 other students that was to be interviewed at the same time. We were put into 4 different rooms and the 4 interviewers rotated rooms every 30 minutes. They spend the first 10-15 minutes asking me behavioral questions in which they seemed uninterested. I assume that is because they knew I was prepared to answer such questions and they were required to ask these. The rest of the time, I had the opportunity to ask them questions and just have a conversation, which was much more engaging and enjoyable.

    Less than a week later, I received a call with an offer.
