    Problem Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies (Jersey City, NJ).

    Interview

    I applied to the position through their website and heard back from HR about a week later. The call was a brief phone interview followed by a HireVue video interview. HireVue is just a site you logon to to answer between 5-10 questions already selected for you. It is not a live video interview but when you are ready, you click Go, and have 2 mins or so to answer the question displayed. After the HireVue, I had 2 additional phone interviews - one with manager and one with a peer. After the interview with the peer, I was called in for an in-person with the team (not the hiring manager) which went great. A few days later, I was called for another phone interview but with a different peer in a different country. I was a little confused since I had already spoken to the hiring manager and met with their go-to/lead person who was local. Didn't receive feedback after that. Different culture afraid of newcomers co-located with the rest of the team perhaps?

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked on HireVue and again by 3 different people the difference between a LAN and a WAN. A very basic question... yet very important. I sensed a lack of communication between the team members.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies.

    Interview

    Met recruiter via a virtual job fair event which led to a request for an online recorded video interview. Questions are posted, you have 30 seconds to prepare yourself to deliver your response, then the recording starts...and your timer starts...you have 3 minutes to answer your question. There are no do-overs or second attempts. You do have the ability to practice with questions to get used to the format and being recorded...you can watch your response to see you you sound, look, present yourself before you do the actual interview. This is the first step and follow up meetings/interviews come after this. There is no job offer at the end of this (or rejection either)...just an email saying thanks for completing it. Expect to be contacted by someone later to discuss next steps.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I got a call from a very friendly recruiter on a Thursday, a few days after I applied for the position at Monster.com. From there we set up a video interview with my prospective boss for the coming Monday. The interview was brief but to the point and a day later the recruiter called to set up a second video interview with the individual who oversees the department. That night the recruiter called to offer me the internship. Both interviews took around 25 minutes. The whole process was very smooth and efficient.

    Insurance Specialist In Chicago Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies in May 2017.

    Interview

    I received a voicemail message from a recruiter stating she was calling to complete a phone interview. I returned her call the next business day, prepared to do the phone interview. The recruiter did not complete the interview at that time, but she scheduled a call for later in the week. Other than the recruiter laughing at the possibility that I could be unemployed and looking for a job for four years, the interview was easy.

    The recruiter never answers her phone in a professional manner (for example, Marsh & McLennan, Recruiting, this is "______"). She never provided her full name. When she did state her first name, it was always with a cough or some background noise or static on her end so that I could not clearly hear her name. I got the impression that she was working out of her home, possibly sitting at her kitchen table making these phone calls. Her phone presence was very unprofessional.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies (Atlanta, GA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Note: I truly think Mercer is a great company that I would love to work for despite my experience. I can tell the people that work there are genuine and caring; which is rare. General Process: Submit online application and recruiters at corporate will sift through the applicants. If they like you then HR calls you and schedules a phone interview. They usually do a few phone interviews, aptitude test(s), then an in person interview or HiVue interview if you're remote. This was a 2 hour interview with 4 interviewers having a budgeted 30 mins with each applicant. I wonder the effectiveness of jaded interviews. Those who interview are not actually recruiters, so they have a bunch of other responsibilities they need to get to... I imagine they want to do things that help them keep their job moreso than focus on an applicant trying to answer a question correctly.
    My experience: The process lasted 3 months. I was a referral from a respected employee and enjoyed visiting with the employees I interviewed with. The high level of ambiguity during the interview process was difficult. Long story sort, I made it to 2 final round interviews (the latter interview suggested after the original final round interview). HR sent me emails to links with the wrong job description attached so I literally was not sure what job I was interviewing for since different emails were saying different things. Mercer was impressed enough for me to be a "runner-up" to a senior position that they would move me to an entry level position to gain a proper foundation. I loved this about them! However I found it odd that they would not seek clarification of my responses to their questions nor give me any feedback after denying me twice.
