    Health and Benefits Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Mercer Health & Benefits.

    Interview

    Really difficult process from start to finish. Recruiter was not helpful and often didn't respond to emails or phone calls. It took a very long time to set up interviews and I'd have to send multiple requests to confirm dates and times. I heard at 3:30 on a Friday that I had an interview on Monday. When I met with the people I was interviewing with, none of them were in the role or were doing the role I was interviewing for. There also were 6 interviews in 3 hours so there was a lot of cramming with a lot of people who hadn't bothered to read my resume. The worst was the comment about loyalty-that because I've had 4 jobs since I graduated college over 15 years ago, I wasn't loyal and wasn't deserving of this opportunity. Very disappointing process from start to finish-probably the worst interview process I've ever gone through.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Mercer Health & Benefits (Des Moines, IA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    1st interview was a recruiter interview, couldn't tell much about the company as an employee. 2nd interview was fairly simple but reserved and standoffish. HR would be in contact within a few days, ended up taking 2 weeks to hear anything.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mercer Health & Benefits in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was brief because the position was relatively new to the company. The Interviewer was nice and easy going, but he did not share much information about the position and or what it entailed. We went over the resume and he asked about relevant experiences. After that, straight to questions. Overall, an easy interview, but come prepared to express your interest to this particular position because it is pretty new relative to the other intern positions available.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mercer Health & Benefits.

    Interview

    The interview process was not too hard. Usually if you're a target school, they'll first interview you at your school, and if you make it to the next round, you'll meet with 4-5 consultants. You'll have a 30 minute interview with each of them. Just know why you want to work for Mercer and what you want to get out of the experience. Other than that, prepare for it like you would any other interview, and you'll do great.

    Client Service Analyst II Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mercer Health & Benefits (Norwood, MA).

    Interview

    The first interview was cancelled the morning of, with no excuse. The makeup interview was quite boring with two people that seemed to be quite below my experience level. They had nothing to say except specific keywords about their job. They didnt like what I said so they passed me off to another recruiter to interview for this lower level position. On Interview two, the first interviewer had no idea that I had interviewed for a higher position, so they didnt care about me basically. At least three of the interviewers were sky high and didnt really have any good things to make me want to work there. One interviewer said she has been there the longest, currently, 1 year. Everyone acted as if they were looking at my resume and didnt prepare at all. Of the 8 people that I was supposed to interview with, 5 showed up.
