    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Agency.

    Interview

    I was a referral, but boy, did I dodge a bullet. As other reviewers have mentioned, this place is incredibly fake. People seem fake happy where you know they only act that way to keep their jobs. The interview process is ridiculously long. After the phone interview there’s 2 hours of meeting with a recruiter, taking a pointless assessment, and then meeting with the department manager all to find “diamonds.” The department manager was rude, apprehensive and would talk down to me during their hour-long portion of the interview. Crucially, when I asked the manager if there was anything they would like to see changed with the company, they never said one “negative” thing, which should’ve been a red flag. Then after meeting with them, and if you move forward in their interview process, you meet with a IO Psychologist. But wait, before you do that, you have 3 other personality/knowledge assessments which take up to 3 hours to do all together. Remember, because they just want “diamonds.” Apparently, I’m not a diamond because I didn’t receive an offer, but I thank god I didn’t. Whether it was the tedious, condescending process (and people) or the fact that my referral wasn’t a family member, they took so much of my time to simply say “no.” It is more than apparent that they will NOT take the time to train you, you should know everything already. This place has a huge Boomer mentality and just takes so long, you’ll probably get an offer elsewhere before you hear back from this place. Come to find out from my referral, they also have a high turnover rate for most of the departments - which is why their job postings say “30+ days since posted” on them. Honestly, do not wait around, look elsewhere, you’ll be treated better.

    Account Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Agency (New York, NY (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    WASTED TIME - I believe the process is racially bias. I was referred by a current employee of Marsh. My initial interview was over the phone with Bill. He tried to convince me that I should take a lower position with less salary. At the in-person interview Bill behaved the same way. He was also present at the interview with the Director and continue to berate my abilities and ultimately the Director agreed with him.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were standard, but Bill the recruiter line of questions were odd and awkward. He laughed a lot to negate from the fact that he knew nothing about Account Management and even said it a few times, yet the company is using him to direct lead the hiring process.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Agency.

    Interview

    I had a connection which got me in contact with the recruiter. They were very responsive and scheduled me an interview within minutes after the phone call. During the interview the recruiter informed me about the internship and asked me how I felt about it. The interview was easy, simply because of the connection I had through the insurance fraternity at my university.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Agency (Worcester, MA (US)).

    Interview

    1/2 hour with the recruiter. 1 Hour phone screen with the director. She spoke more about herself than about my experience. 3 hour in person interview. Fake "happy sunshiney" personalities.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly spoke about themselves. Despite many employees leaving recently, acted like they were the best place to work. It was tedious to listen to. Noticed that everyone working there was under 30 and attractive.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Agency (Fort Lauderdale, FL (US)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I had a very positive experience, right up until two months later when their “sun shiney” personalities, open positive dialogue, and frequent communication ceased completely. Their lengthy interview, waiting and testing process went on for two months, during which I was all but offered the job directly. I was given flying colors for my references and background screening. The last friendly email I received actually said we should have the “green light” next week. All of a sudden, crickets. Bottom line, I jumped through hoops for two months and instead of an offer, I got a two month unemployment gap. I was given one of the standard generic reasons two weeks later by email, only to find it couldn’t possibly be true shortly after. I will never know why, but I can assure you I will never be that naive again.

    Interview

    After applying through a job website, I was given a video interview with 9 questions, before being brought in for an on-site interview. In the on-site interview, I elaborated on my past experience and my resume -- it was rather nonchalant, just a friendly interview over the table.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Agency.

    Interview

    I met with both the direct manager and their manager during the interview process, requiring two trips to the company for in-person interviews. The questions were standard and straight-forward, not at all difficult or out of the box. Unfortunately, the position that was discussed and posted was NOT communicated clearly.
