    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies (Boston, MA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    detailed, lengthy, detailed, thorough. Several steps were required and testing - drug and criminal background tests were required. You really needed to be prepared as they put you to the test. They created simulated situations and saw how you reacted.

    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.

    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

    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.

    There were 2 people interviewing me in person they were both very nice. The questions they asked me were about my past work experiences mostly, they asked how well do I do under pressure. Rest were just small conversations. It does take a while for them to process you to get started but they let you know whether you get the job or not.
