    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    They used a piece of proprietary software to assess candidates' competency when I applied, which
    I thought clever. There 2 rounds of interviews, during which my hiring manager told me " you know you won't get a promotion here or rise up in the hierarchy." The people seemed pleasant enough, though very cautious. What a surprise - caution is the name of the game at MMC.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Marsh & McLennan Companies in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    3 wks. after applying via LinkedIn, received an afternoon e-mail scheduling a next morning phone screening interview. Face-to=face interviews were to begin the following week. Position was in NY, but interviewer was in Kentucky. Standard screening questions including "what kind of salary do you need?" The interviewer said that Marsh never includes salaries in job postings. She also made a remark about the cost of living in NYC, which led me to believe that the $50k-60k salary range that I suggested was too high. In addition, she mentioned, in response to my question, that they had a very large number or candidates. This gave me the impression that were in a position to be extremely selective.

Similar to the first interview session as I met them in small groups and was mostly asked about my working style, challenges I've faced in the work environment, etc.
