    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Conway, AR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed 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+ weeksinterviewed at MassMutual (Fort Smith, AR) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Multiple calls and interviews with different people. The process was a little bit lengthy but not too bad. It was kinda bad about not describing the reality of much of the industry but that is fairly common in this industry i believe.

    Financial Services Representative () Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pompano Beach, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at MassMutual (Pompano Beach, FL) in January 2011.

    Interview

    There was an in person meeting at a on campus career fair followed by a meeting with the agent in charge of the office. Both processes were kept short. The interview with the agent in charge of the office was extremely brief because he produced (I believe he did quite well). Overall the interview was exceptionally simple. They may have wanted people more than people may have wanted them. Commission only, just like the regular agents.

    My initial contact was by telephone with a recruiter. This was then followed up with a skills test on-site. Received a call later that same afternoon requesting a in person interview with a Panel of four directors. The panel interview went well, although in hind site, they did not really answer questions about the department culture, choosing instead to focus on the corporate level.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at MassMutual (San Diego, CA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    It was very different than other companies. I met the CEO of the firm, I was taken to lunch and dinner which I am assuming happened because of my track record at my previous firm. They talk a lot about themselves and how great they are.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at MassMutual.

    Interview

    I was given the interview as an employee referral. The interviewer was very nice throughout the whole process. Entering the interview I didn't even have my resume nor had he seen it, this didn't change much. I believe that they care more about the person they are interviewing and how you can help each other.
