Interview

Phone interview led by HR, then proceeded to interviews with consultants. A lot of behavioral questions that was pretty straight forward. When you get the final round be prepared to do a case study on the sector or industry you are applying for.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mercer (New York, NY) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Sent in by head hunter and interviewed in both 1 on 1 and group setting with team leaders. Reviewed structure of organization (always evolving) and reviewed my qualifications. Nice people though not entirely engaged in the conversation. No difficult questions or testing of knowledge of industry.

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Mercer (Zürich (Switzerland)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview started with a short company presentation given by the HR representative followed by CV related questions. Throughout the interview there was a very friendly and professional atmosphere. I’ve always had the impression that the interviewer showed a genuine interest in me as a person and was really interested in hiring me. Overall an excellent interview experience.

    Five rounds of interviews, including questions on core concepts of HR, group discussion, pannel discussion, written round etc. Also had an extempore speaking round introduced. The process was lengthy but not very difficult. It took a lot of time for the same to end.

    Interview

    We met for a "Super Saturday" interview process. We met with 8 people that day and rotated through all the interviews. Each interview was different - case study interview, excel interview, past performance / behavioral interview, an interview for us to ask questions of Mercer and an interview to learn more about the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mercer (Frankfurt am Main (Germany)) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Telefoninterview gefolgt von zwei Interviewrunden an zwei verschiedenen Standorten in Deutschland, dazu zwei vor Ort auszuführende Arbeitspakete. Die Interviewrunden waren sehr offen und sympathisch. Die Arbeitspakete waren ein Auszug aus dem späteren Doing in dem Bereich, keine klassischen "Berater-Cases" à la "Wieviel Golfbälle passen in einen VW-Golf." Das fand ich sehr positiv, Letztere können ja häufig schlicht auswendig bzw. vorbereitet werden und haben damit im Grunde kaum Aussagekraft. Zusätzlich wurden ein paar fachliche Basics aus dem Bereich abgefragt.

    Interview Questions

    • Es wurden fachbezogene Fragen gestellt, ohne "Hintertürchen" oder "Fallen", die jeder beantworten können sollte, der in dem Bereich arbeiten möchte.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Es gab wenig Verhandlungsspielraum
