Sales Agent Interview

Sales Agent
Saint Louis, MO

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at American Income Life in February 2013.

Interview Details – Wasn't so much of an interview as a presentation to a group of 20 or so prospective employees. It felt like a timeshare presentation. The setting made me think that they'll take absolutely anyone willing to do the job. The "interviewer" didn't ever say that all the positions they have are 100% commission based; I had to ask.

Interview Question – Didn't ask any questions at all. It was a presentation and breakdown of the company, sales pitch, and commission structure.   Answer Question

Orlando, FL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at American Income Life in December 2012.

Interview Details – They called me to schedule an interview and I have never heard of the company. Seems like a company I would work for. Interview was fairly quick and then they transfered me to a group inteview. It was more of a company overview that took a little too long but answers most ,if not all, questions. Had a little quiz and a personality test and done.

Interview Question – How do you feel about working 50-60 hrs a week?   Answer Question

Sales Agent Interview

Sales Agent
Tampa, FL

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at American Income Life in October 2012.

Interview Details – I received several calls and emails from different people at American Income; they found my resume on Monster and kept calling/emailing. Because of them, I may actually remove my phone number from my online resumes.

First, they encouraged me to set up an appointment/interview without telling me exactly what job it was for. I told them I didn't want to do sales; they told me that there were entry-level jobs, as well as some training for management.

After arriving at the interview site, the interviewer told me "Yeah... basically, we're looking for sales." He also told me that they have customer service reps who get $5 to set up an appointment. This makes me think that maybe all the people trying to contact me were customer service reps trying to get some extra cash, willing to fudge the job details in order to get people interested.

I told him I was interested and left; he had me take his card in case I wanted to get back in touch.

Sales Agent Interview

Sales Agent
Londonderry, NH

The process took 2 days - interviewed at American Income Life in August 2010.

Interview Details – I received a call from AIL that they found my resume online and wanted to interview me for a sales position. They set up the interview for the next day at their Londonderry office. I arrived for a 9:15 interview at 9:06, to a packed waiting area, with people filling out applications. I was asked to fill out an application, and then a manager would see me. I was called into a small conference room, where the regional director briefly looked at the application and my resume, and asked very few questions. The receptionist then lead me to a larger conference room with about 12 other people, where were given a presentation about the company and asked to fill out a personality test.

The product seemed reasonable enough, but the requirements were absurd. We would be a 1099 contractor, responsible for the use of our own cell phone, laptop, and vehicle without any reimbursement. Travel would be all over the state of NH with hours consisting of nights and weekends. We were required to get our insurance license through the state of NH, which totaled $400, without reimbursement. Later we were told they would want us to receive our license in Maine and Massachusetts, which would be an additional $290 every two years. Salary appeared to be 100% commission based, but he couldn't explain the details because it was "very complicated."

There were no direct benefits because of the 1099, but they would provide information on providers we could use.

The whole process was supposed to take 15 minutes, and it turned into 2 hours of wasted time.
