Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (Dallas, TX (US)) in January 2020.

Interview

Applied online, 2 weeks later I received an email asking to record a video on Hirevue to answer a series of questions. After another 2 weeks, I had a live video interview. The interviewer didn't ask any resume or behavioral questions, but I was asked if I knew what the position was a few times. When I had the opportunity to ask the interviewer some questions, they seemed annoyed and defensive. Left the interview with a negative feeling towards the position.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Willis Towers Watson (Dallas, TX (US)) in August 2019.

    Interview

    Applied through their website, and had 3 separate interviews.

    First, there was a hirevue interview, where I was asked 7 questions and sent video responses. Had 3 minutes prep before answering each question, only one take each.

    A couple weeks later, I had a video interview with the department manager, where we mainly talked about why I was changing industries.

    Within a few weeks, I was flown to the office and had a fairly intense day of interviews. First, there was a basic 30 minute math/logic test. Then, there were 4 half hour interviews with various people in the department. Finally, there was a 90 minute lunch with 3 different people who work in the department.

    I knew the result of the interview the next business day.
