    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at MassMutual (Sacramento, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Had initial phone interview, about a week or so later got called in for an in-person interview. Talked a lot about his experience, and why he came to Mass Mutual. (Interviewer had previously spent 18 yrs at Northwestern Mutual and I wanted know why he switched over- I had also interviewed with NWM before). Went over resume. Was sent a behavior/personality test afterwards, came back and we went over my results, got more info about company/job details, and decided not to continue since I would have to stay in my current city and I am looking to relocate.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at MassMutual (Walnut Creek, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I serendipitously connected with a mutual friend who closely works with a top-producing adviser. He badgered me for 3-4 months while I was in my last academic year at a CSU to consider a "position" at a financial services firm with which he was contracted. I agreed to meet with the senior partner at a office headquarters for the initial meeting. The meeting lasted for over 30 minutes. The senior partner got to know me, and I became familiarized with MassMutual dynamics. We followed up with a 2nd interview a week or two later. He was happy to endorse me, and set me up with a meeting between myself and my sales manager. I was offered a contract 3 weeks from the initial meeting with the senior partner.

    A recruiter called me about the role in Springfield.

I interviewed with quite a few people - most VPs and above - but the interviews were really straight forward.
