    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Marsh (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in November 2016.

    This process consists of two stages:

    The first stage was a video interview where you are prompted with behavioral questions and given a couple of minutes to record a response.

    The second stage was a panel interview with members of Marsh's senior management and HR team. This interview takes place in Marsh's local office based on your location regardless of which office you are applying for. During this interview, I had to prepare a presentation regarding the insurance broking industry.

    Graduate Trainee Interview Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Marsh (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The Interview process consists of applying online and then receiving a video interview which asks behavioural questions. If you get through, you are invited to do a presentation on Marsh and the industry that it operates in. The presentation is in front of Sr. VP's. Very good interview process, not lengthy and judges based on communication skills needed in the real world. All of the hiring managers were very friendly throughout the process.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Marsh (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Very long interview process (started in October, finished in March). Started with a video interview following an online application. Lead to an in person interview at local office followed by a cased based interview 2 months later. Very difficult interview with case panel of Sr. VPs. Overall a very inense process that was worsened by the very long time frame.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Marsh (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    It was not a fun process, but what process is? Was asked why I wanted to be in insurance, what drove me there, and why I would be a good candidate. There were a couple of rounds but again, not that hard overall.

    Client Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Marsh (Las Vegas, NV) in May 2015.

    Interview

    4-person panel interview. Interviewers were all very nice, relaxed, funny and explained that they understand this process can be unsettling. We had a great conversation, even though many of the formal interview questions contain several parts within one question and require the candidate to use critical thinking skills, along with professional background experience from which to draw.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Marsh (London, England (UK)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Online application then a telephone interview. Pre-Telephone Interview difficult since it wasn't planned - therefore I wasn't prepared for the questions the interviewer asked. Interviewer very pleasant but difficult to convey your suitability when questions were only about the scheme itself.
