    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (Houston, TX) in October 2018.

    Interview

    I Interviewed in Houston for Business Analyst 1. It is a 5 hour long performace from listening to what the company is about, having lunch, to drawing on a board explaining what you think your role would be, 4 back to back interviews, and an office tour.

    This company values its applicants. Not all companies will buy you lunch and create name tags for you just for an interview. If you made it to the second interview, you should applaud yourself.

    Interview early October, didnt hear back until late october for 2nd interview. Within a few days, got an offer.

    Very pleasant people.

    Pension Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (Philadelphia, PA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    It was an internal interview. First it was a phone screening, and then an in person interview. I interviewed with three different people. The interview was kind of non-traditional, since I was an internal candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • Why are you looking for another position, what are your strengths, tell us more about your experience. The remainder of the interview questions were kind of waived because it was an internal interview. I was an internal candidate who applied for another position in another city/town. The project manager I interviewed with was extremely nice. Once I was hired, she was very involved and had an open door policy.   Answer Question

    Pension Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (Denver, CO) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Got a call from a recruiter based out East. Had a phone interview with her. Passed the interview so another recruiter scheduled my interview at the Denver office. I interviewed with 5 different people, one at a time. Took about 5 hours. Really lengthy process. Kept calling me back for about a month to check on my status while they were interviewing other candidates. After a month, asked me to have a phone interview AGAIN with another person. Finally got a job offer that was a big stingy. Try to negotiate but no - they won't negotiate.

    • Describe a time you had a problem with a client and how you solved it.   1 Answer

    Pension Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (Denver, CO) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by an outside staffing company who did an initial Skype interview. Then I did a phone interview with someone from WTW, but she didn't really sell me on the position. I later found my notes from that interview and saw that I had written, "Sounds boring!!" I am glad that I did go in for an in-person interview because the two managers I met with totally changed my perception of the job overall. The questions were pretty standard and I was completely comfortable talking to the managers.

    The most important thing I learned from the contrast between the phone interview and the in-person interview is that it really is so hard to tell very much about the job from just a phone interview.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you manage your time when you have a large workload? (Or something to that effect- I don't remember exactly how it was phrased)   1 Answer
