    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (San Diego, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    It was a digital interview which lasted about 35-40 minutes. Questions were mostly related to my business analysis career experience. There was one scenario question where I was asked to understand the scenario and describe how will i approach this situation. There is some preparation time and some answering time. I mistook the answering time for 1 of the questions as the preparation time and hence missed it. There was no way in which I could answer that question again or let the team know. Wish the interface were more friendlier.
