    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview first, took about 15 minutes. They asked me about my background and resume and then specifically about the executive compensation field itself. Then had two back-to-back face to face interviews at their office. Both people were friendly and asked basic questions - run through resume, do you know excel - nothing hard. Took about 10-15 minutes with the first person and then about 30 minutes with the second.

    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
