Hi guys- so I've applied for both Mercer and Marsh, for Career analyst and Client advisory, respectively. The forms were basic and simple to fill out.

I had received an email from HR stating video/phone interviews will be handed out from next week so I was wondering if anyone has any experience of these from MMC? I found an old forum on this site where some people were saying Marsh will call you up with a surprise phone interview which must be done on the spot with no opportunity to rearrange- seems harsh and Im not sure if this has been changed by now? Should I be prepping for that?

Thanks!

I've received a HireVue invite from Marsh and McLennan with a video interview invite for the Mercer Graduate Analyst role. Hope this helps?

Hope you excelled in the video interview! It's been more than a month that I have applied for Grad role, but no communication, how much time did it take in your case?

I don't remember the specifics, but if you prepare as you would for an interview, it should be fine

Good luck!

It took more than a month to hear back when I received the video interview invite, and I haven't heard anything now, sincerely my interview!

Hi,

I have a video interview for the Mercer 2019 Graduate Scheme and was wondering if anyone who has done the interview would be able to tell me are they testing knowledge of Mercer or Marsh and McLennan? I.e. If I was to get asked What do you know about xyz, would xyz be Mercer or Marsh and McLennan?

Well I would advise you guys to keep on applying for other things because these guys take their sweet time, I applied end of November, invited for video interview on the 13th of December and no response since. Although they did say they will contact me and I wouldn't need to contact them.

Hey guys so I’ve got an invitation for the hirevue mercer internship interview and I was wondering if they just ask mainly competency questions like why mercer, why this role? Etc.

Also how many questions do they ask?

Thanks

I don't think it's fair to give details on the video interview, but if you prepare as you would for a face to face interview, you will be fine!

I’m not asking for specifics just the general idea... if the questions are competency based or not? And also the length as I can see majority here have applied for the graduate roles whereas I’ve applied for the internship roles and I’m not sure if there is any difference in the style of the two.. like if one is longer or not.. that’s all. I’m not asking for details
