    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mercer.

    Interview

    It was a half day event. You are interviewed individually by 4 people, each at a different level in the company. 30 minutes each person and they kind of ask pretty much similar questions. This makes it hard to incorporate different experiences and stories. However, everyone was very friendly and professional.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Mercer.

    Interview

    Had extremely bad and unprofessional experience .
    Was contacted by HR for the position and hiring manager was going to update me for the first interview. Never heard back from them for 2 months and was finally updated that they have decided to pursue another candidate . I was never interviewed and waited unnecessarily for 2 months. Disappointed !

    Research Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Mercer.

    Interview

    Hiring process moved fairly quickly as the company was looking to fill the position following the move of a prior employee. I interviewed twice, once with two hiring managers, the other with the department head. All levels were communicable and friendly, provided insight into the industry, and made the interviews more conversational than simply reading from a list of questions. HR was also excellent throughout the process and very timely in responding to my emails and questions.

    Actuarial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mercer.

    Interview

    Whole process was very straightforward and relatively laid-back. First round was a 30 minute phone screen. I was then invited into the office for a three hour interview with 8 people. Two employees at a time, about 45 minutes each round. First round was with higher-ups who just wanted to chat about my experience and thoughts on healthcare. Super easy and fun. As I got further into the rotations, questions became more analytical/Excel based, some regarding healthcare. Trickier questions, but also very interesting to talk through. Be prepared to know your Excel projects!

    Heard back a week and a half later (mind you, this interview was around the holidays, so I was very impressed with how quickly everything moved). Didn't get the job in the actuarial department, but was told my resume would be sent to another department to be considered as they felt the strengths suited the other department more. Overall very positive experience.
