Financial Services Representative Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at MassMutual (Richmond, VA) in March 2015.

Interview

Three in person interviews. A lot of the process was the interviewer explaining to you the commission based salary. One interview was an hour long info session. Otherwise, normal interview questions (strengths, weaknesses, tell me about yourself, why are you interested, etc.) The interview process was long, I originally applied in September and received the offer in March.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MassMutual (Saint Louis, MO) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Interview Process was great. The first interview was a casual conversation over the phone. At the end of the interview they gave me a homework assignment which is similar to what I would be doing with the job. The second interview they did really well with educating me on everything that i needed to know about the job before I a made a decision. It was all very smooth and they did a great job in the interview process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MassMutual (Conway, AR) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I went in for my initial interview and spent most of my time just getting to know the interviewer. For the most part he just went over the structure of the company and how he came to work for them. He showed me how rep's get paid and we spoke in length about how profitable this industry can be. After that, I was called back for a second interview. It was then that I was offered the position.

    Interview

    Normal interview questions about why you think you will succeed as a rep. Have to consent to a background check and credit check before being hired. First exposure was a group setting in which the agency recruiter gave a presentation. From there, I had a one on one interview a week later. I then met the sales manager for an interview and was then offered a position.

    No negotiation - 100% commission job

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at MassMutual (Denver, CO) in September 2014.

    Interview

    First interview was mostly an introduction to the company and how they operate. Seemed like a genuine and very employee centered atmosphere. Explained in detail sales strategy, commission structure and benefits. They expect you to have a large friend/family (etc) base to begin your sales however are helpful in finding others. Their focus is on adding value to their clients and are dedicated to treating and providing the best service for each client. The company atmosphere seems very positive and conducive to growth.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at MassMutual in June 2014.

    Interview

    I met a recruiter at a university career fair, he asked for my resume and contacted me a few weeks later. We interviewed at the university then later a couple of times at the office. The interviews were mainly to check for the right personality type. There was also a market survey process that was less stringent that the competitor Northwestern Mutual's. I recommend that if you do not enjoy the market survey 100%, do not take the job. The surveys should literally be the easiest thing in the world. If they stress you out at all, go do something else. Seriously.

    Reasons for Declining

    The office was located in a suburb, and I preferred to work in the city (I got another offer from a competitor in the city)
