    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Marsh (Chicago, IL (US)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I reached out to a recruiter through a personal reference. I interviewed at Chicago, IL office with two managers. The questions were all behavioral. We talked about my past experience and projects that I took at the university. They asked about what I would like to do at the workplace since the position offered diverse opportunities. Both the interviews lasted for half an hour each. A week later, I interviewed on the phone with three people, from the Atlanta office.

    Accounting Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brooklyn Park, MN (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Marsh (Brooklyn Park, MN (US)).

    Interview

    The process initially took a while. I applied online on October 12th and wasn't contacted for a phone interview until November 5th. The phone interview went over information about the company, why the position is open and I was asked why I was looking for a new opportunity and to walk through my resume. The in-person interview was what turned me away. I met with the controller and the accounting manager and the controller appeared to be too busy to meet with me as they kept looking out the office. The in-person interview was only 20 minutes long and I did not have a good feeling about it afterwards. I did not believe I did very well since not all questions correlated to the new position, but instead was about my former employer and why I believed the changes were happening.
    I received a call the next day with an offer and the job had a robust benefits package and great pay but my feeling after the in-person interview was not positive enough for me to accept the offer. I do not believe 20 minutes is enough time to know whether or not you want to hire someone, and wasn't sure how many other decisions were made this way.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you walk me through your resume?
      Why are you looking for a new opportunity?   Answer Question

    Legal Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Marsh (New York, NY (US)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Straight forward, contacted initially by HR -- phone interview, then in person with two people. Be very careful with your on-line application -- it should match your resume, your cv and the hire application (yes, they ask you to fill out an application in addition to online application -- think it is called a disclosure document or something like that).

    Interview Questions

    • Strengths and weaknesses, where do you see yourself in five years, and tell me about your software skills.   1 Answer
