    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Aon.

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend and was able to meet with the recruitment specialist in a week. Apparently the assistant was supposed to e-mail me an interview prep package but I never received it or knew about it. The interview were mainly behavioural based questions but they weren't anything out of the ordinary. The recruitment specialist said that I should hear back a week later and if I didn't I could follow up. He also mentioned that the hiring manager was also interviewing people. Anyways, a week passes and I don't hear back from them. I follow up and he said interviews are still going on so I should follow up in a week. I followed up and didn't hear back until two days later that the hiring manager chose someone else.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Aon (Toronto, ON) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview with a recruiter, followed by a video interview to be reviewed by management team.
    The phone interview went well, however the video interview was horrible. Aon sent a link to an online application where I read a question and had 60 seconds to respond. My answers were recorded on video. I felt like I was being interviewed by a robot.
    After the video interview, the recruiter called to say they are delayed in reviewing it and will get back to me after the weekend. I called a couple of time the week after and left a message asking on the status but never heard back.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Aon (London, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    One whole day Assessment Centre, consisting of 4 parts - 2 group tasks, 1 fact-finding exercise, and 1 interview.
    The first one was group debate on 3 out of 4 questions chosen by all the candidates together. Not difficult, just try to be relaxed and express your ideas clearly.
    The second one was fact-finding exercise, which was simply a case study. An article with limited concept was given and you have to ask the interview about questions related with the case study, and finally write a thorough report.
    The third one for me was the interview. Lots of competency-based questions were asked, but all were typical ones.
    The last one was a group task again. All the candidates work together for a case study.
    It was an extremely long ,tiring day. You should definitely be well prepared for that.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Aon (Las Vegas, NV (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted to do a video-interview at my leisure. I registered with a link they sent and had the opportunity to practice before actually answering the questions. Process took about 2 hours with prep, combination of speaking into my video camera and typing "essay"-style answers. Next step was a phone interview, duration approx. 1 hour. Spoke with 2 individuals from the team that I would be working with. I was not brought on-site and received an offer over the phone. Overall straightforward, steam-lined style with no surprises.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Aon (Minneapolis, MN (US)).

    Interview

    Got an initial e-mail to request a phone interview. The phone interview was short, asked a few basic questions about resume but was mostly to describe the company and position. The next interview was at the office. It was 5 rounds (about a half hour each) with 2 people. I was put in a room with 4 other people who were also interviewing for the same position so it was a little weird, but the interviews were pretty straightforward with basic behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of behavioral questions.
      Tell me about yourself, strengths, weaknesses, etc.
      Fairly decent amount of group questions, such as a time when your group worked well together, when you didn't work well together, when some didn't put as much effort in, etc.
      Talk about a time when you bargained something, what would you have done differently?
      Be prepared to talk through your resume as well.
      There were no real technical questions besides asking what familiarity I had with some Microsoft Office programs and statistic programs.
