    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Gallagher.

    Interview

    Intimidating- I interviewed 3 times for 3 different positions. Each time is intimidating with at least 2-3 supervisors eyeing you down. Practice in the mirror, slow down & smile. Now a days they give a commercial insurance test... there is no faking it either you'll know the basic p&c questions or you won't. Lastly- it's all about who you know. If a referral recommended you, play that referral throughout the entire interview. They recommend I work here, I've heard nothing but phenomenal things from her/him...

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gallagher.

    Interview

    I was emailed and scheduled for a phone screening interview with HR. We discussed my related experience and preferences along with current benefits. Then I was asked to come in for a face to face interview with multiple people that you will potentially work with. After the first interview took place I was called for a second interview to meet with department supervisor who I would report to.

    I thought the interview process was easy. The staff makes an effort to make you feel comfortable. Just be yourself.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Gallagher in January 2018.

    Interview

    First interview: Phone call with recruiter, they describe the role and opportunity and do 90% of the talking.
    Second: Second call with recruiter, they review your resume and ask questions about past performance. You do majority of speaking as candidate. Have stories to tell about key wins to date, makes this call a breeze.
    Third: Phone interview with hiring manager (area president). Looking to make sure you have the history of performance in a sales role worthy of the in person interview. Will ask about individual contributions as well as team selling. Opportunity to ask questions back and forth. You will do 70% of talking if asking appropriate questions. Highly recommend you review the last earnings call/press release before this call to demonstrate that you understand recent happenings in their company and can ask questions about them.
    **personality quiz between interviews**
    4th interview: in-person peer interview with future teammates to make sure it is a good cultural fit. Area President will be present when you arrive to meet you but will not be in the meetings with peers. Be excited/energetic but not over the top if it's not your personality. Ask a lot about them and have succinct stories to tell about yourself to common questions. They won't know anything about you other than that you are a serious candidate as many people don't get this far.
    5th interview: Interview with Regional Manager (area president's boss). Likely a phone interview unless a slow time of year. This can be hardest but is often just to 'check a box' if the Area President and team really like you. Hyper prepare for this one with stories and wins to review and you are likely to get an offer.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gallagher (New York, NY (US)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    HR Interview was good.
    Hiring manager did not ask me on leadership related question about a manager role, ever wonder how bad managers get hired, this is how. Good accountant do not translate to good accounting managers always, good programmers are not always good leaders.
