    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Marsh (Chicago, IL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Overall, the process was pretty typical: HR phone screen, in-person interviews, etc. It was a bit more drawn out than it perhaps should have been. Make sure you get a full picture of your responsibilities and really dig into the benefits information!

    Interview Questions

    • Explain your experience handling a book of business of large P&C accounts.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Another offer at another firm was more attractive based on the information at hand. In retrospect, would have been a better decision to go with Marsh.

    Summer TRAC Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Davis, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Marsh (Davis, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied for position through University job posting and met with a recruiter on campus. Initial application included a resume and a submission of a brief "selfie" video through hirevue. The video included three questions with ~3 minutes to answer each question; the questions were very simple and personality based (e.g. tell us about yourself, why do you want to work with us?). Following the application I got invited to an interview with a recruiter on campus. I was kinda nervous but he was very engaging and he made it easy to open up and talk a bit more. The interview questions were also personality based and had typical scenario/behavior-type questions.

    Overall positive experience with the interview process. Only drawback I would say is that because the recruiter was so friendly and talkative I thought I nailed the interview, which made it a little more disappointing when I found out I was declined an offer :(

    Interview Questions

    • What do you know about MARSH, and why do you want to work with us?
      Talk about a time you had to deal with a difficult teammate/someone who won't cooperate.
      Do you have experience working with large amounts of data?  
      Answer Question
