    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson.

    Interview

    I bypassed the on-campus interviews and went straight to an on-site interview. It took around a few weeks for them to actually schedule an interview date for me. After the interview, I had a final phone interview the week after. I heard back in about 2.5 weeks from the initial on-site interview. The interview seemed to go very well but unfortunately, they had many applicants for one slot.

    Interview Questions

    • Many of the questions were standard behavioral. They typically have a set of questions that they ask. They'll ask about 1 or 2 of them and then stray off with questions of their own.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (Dallas, TX) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting. Completed a phone interview in which I was asked basic questions about my excel skills and ability to work within a team and was invited to the final round. Final round was 4 30 minute interviews with different staff members. Some were friendly and engaging and some were cold and unhelpful. Questions were basic behavioral and resume review. No cases or exercises. Heard back in 3 weeks that I didn't get the offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (Atlanta, GA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The interviewer was very open and friendly. However, he asked if I had any questions after about 15 minutes out of a 45 minute interview which I took to mean the closing of the interview. Weird miscommunication.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (Zürich (Switzerland)).

    Interview

    Interview in person. Interview lasted for about 1.5 hours since the potential direct future manager was involved, then the upper boss and afterwards HR - very intense but good interview with the possibility to ask a lot of questions. There was also a lot of questions from their side but nothing that couldn't be prepared upfront, nothing that would be a big surprise. Very open interview.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, got contacted for a phone interview with the HR. HR spent lots time explaining the role. Questions were mainly about the resume. The entire phone interview lasted 30 minutes. Overall a nice chat. They look for candidates with specific set of skills as the role is niche.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson.

    Interview

    Phone Interview was standard, AC was split into 4 parts - interview (competency), presentation, group exercise and written exercise. The first was standard, the presentation - you were given a brief and then asked to present it, it was on two companies merging and how you would restructure their salary schemes. The group exercise was laughably easy - come up with 5 words that describe TW.
    The written exercise was the hardest but everyone does better than expected - you're given several pages of a document detailing executive compensation for two employees and based on their base salary, stock related bonuses, pension, retention bonuses etc. you had to calculate their total income. Overall, the day was really fun and everyone really friendly.
