Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Towers Watson in October 2014.

Interview Details

Filled out application form and was contacted within a week for a telephone interview. Interview process was pretty straight forward. I was interviewed by an associate in the Actuarial Department. She guided the it pretty well and it was more of a two sided conversation than one sided and I felt completely at ease. Basic competency question and then the usual why Towers Watson and why this division.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Towers Watson.

    Interview Details

    I was reached out by someone in Human Resources who wanted to screen me for the interview. She asked me about my past experiences and how each experience related to the position. A few weeks later, I went in for a skills assessment which was based on communicating with clients and organizing and presenting material. The next phase, which was a few days later was to interview with four employee within the departments. The questions were all behavioral question based on time management and organizational skills.

    Interview Details

    Thorough selection process - kind interviewers.

    Telephone interview was as predicted but questions overlapped with the application contents.

    The call back after the telephone interview was disappointing. It was arranged by someone in a different branch. The interview information given on the phone was vague but detailed information was promised in the confirmation email - which arrived 2-3 days later after I called the office about it a day before the interview.

    The face to face interview was relatively informal. Comforting atmosphere but the questions seemed to be improvised (something I didn't expect).

    Application Details

    interviewed at Towers Watson in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied via university career website, then received an interview on campus. The interview process was smooth, and I had a great time talking to an ex-intern-now-full-time employee. However, here would be some more room for improvements. Besides on having a conversation going, there would be better to drive each session by specific topics. I like the working environment at Towers Watson, so I wished the interviewer would bring that atmosphere, or more likely the spirit, into the conversation. I believed that an interview should be each party mutually presenting their interests and working on the subject with efforts of both.
