    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    HR phone screen followed by in-person interviews with team.

    The team was very nice and the conversations went well. Talked about background of group, goals and outlook of the position and team.

    However, poor communication throughout process in terms of updates. After reaching out to HR for updates on the status of the position weeks after the interviews, was told they would be in touch during the week. A week later, had to reach out again to follow up and was told verbatim from previous response that they would be in touch. Meanwhile, according to the MMC website career section, the position is "inactive" and no longer taking submissions. So either HR is misleading to imply the process is still ongoing or the position has been filled already without any communication.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    We had a nice large room all to ourselves, like a big conference room. I waited in the lobby for about 1/2 hour before I got called. I had to get a security badge and go through a turnstyle. I sat with another applicant whose uncle was an employee, his uncle came over and encouraged his nephew. Seemed like friendly and cordial people. They said a nice place to work.

    Senior Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies (Boston, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    It started off very well. I applied on their site and received a response from their talent acquisition team the same day to complete a recorded (HireVue) interview. Once I completed the interview, I check in with the recruiter weekly. Finally, I was informed after 4 weeks that the position was in the process of being filled. This wasn't the first time it happened to me. I previously had applied to another position where I was selected as a finalist and they even took it upon themselves to contact my references. At the end, I was contacted and informed that they decided to move forward with an internal candidate. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME APPLYING TO THIS COMPANY. THEY ENJOY STRINGING PEOPLE ALONG. THEIR RECRUITERS ARE HELPLESS AND IT FEELS AS IF THEY DO NOT DO THEIR JOBS. They are big on employee referral but don't give you much consideration.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies (Hartford, CT) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was a bit slower than most companies from the initial application date to the 1st interview. Hirevue was use for the interviews which is like Skype. It's a one-way interview where are asked a series of questions. Your answers are recorded, saved and downloaded where the HR staff can review.

    Client Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, SC
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies (Columbia, SC) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I arrived on time but sat in the front area for approximately 10 minutes before the interviewer, a supervisor in that department, came to get me. The email stated to dress formal so I arrived in a nice, navy blue pants suit. However, the interviewer had on jeans and a sleeveless casual top. Evidentally, there's no dress code. The interview consisted of a few questions but more so the job description which consisted of several different roles in one. The interviewer told me they needed people badly and right now, everyone is a bit overworked and the environment is a bit chaotic. (Paraphrasing). I was concerned about that part but I'm a hard worker and am used to challenges so I didn't scare easily. Anyways, three months later I received a rejection email.

    Interview

    Too long of a process do not interview here and bank the job, if you have other offers elsewhere take them. recruiters communications is not consistent. Rejection was sent via a generated email would have been better if it came directly from the recruiter you actually dealt with.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, and after 2 days I received an email for video interview. In my opinion, it was quite awkward (answering questions to a computer screen). However, I answered all of the questions correctly. After the interview, it's been more than 2 months, I've not heard from them and I'm guessing I was rejected. It's really unprofessional of them, not to reply, even when it's a rejection.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    I first had a brief phone screening and then completed a video interview through an app called hirevue. To be honest the video interview was pretty awkward and I did not think I did well. I did receive a phone call about two weeks later to go to the office and interview one on one. The interviewer was extremely nice and personable and all we really did was go over my resume. The majority of the interview was conversational once we got past my resume and skills. It seems that they are really looking for strong interpersonal skills. Regardless of whether I am extended an offer I would definitely say that it was an extremely pleasant experience.
