    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at New York Life in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    First interview went well. Second interview was disappointing since hiring manager never showed up. He left me waiting for over an hour. They don't validate parking. The hiring manager called me 15 minutes after 3pm to see where I was and stated that we had an interview at 2pm. I laughed it off since I am looking for training and support. If the manager is too busy to meet with me on time, then how will the support be? I waited in the lobby for an hour before I left. Maybe that's some kind of a test to determine how much of a push over you are.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at New York Life in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied through college career center, got a call back within 1 week to set up an interview. I find out on arrival that it is a group interview and am kept waiting 45 mins. Guy struts in with slicked back hair and shirt half unbottoned. Real boiler room type guy. He was rude and short with everyone. Dismissed me not long after, thank god.

    Interview Questions
    • If you read the top section about the hiring and interview process then this will make sense: why do you want to work here was the most difficult questions (and the same time the easiest questions). I didnt want to work there but was too embarrassed to say so, so I fumbled through it talking about starting a career and making money to provide for my family.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at New York Life in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed initially with managing partner. AsI left I took a personality test. The next interview at the same office with the same person was basically to tell me why my personality was not a fit . (So why was I called back?). I left he interview with a bad taste in my mouth from that interview and felt the person was a complete jerk. I took another position and sure enouh, his secretary emailed me 4 weeks later asking if I wanted to move forwad. (?) I have heard your initial employmen at NY life begins with you giving them 200 names and addresses of friends and family that they start soliciting.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at New York Life in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    HR Rep called me a few weeks after my online application and invited me in to discuss possible career options. Set the interview for the following afternoon. Interview was one on one in the HR reps office. She told me that it would take about 30 minutes and was the first of 3 potential interviews. The second would last about an hour and a half and I don't remember what she said about the third. Interview went pretty well, but I realized that it was not a job that would fit right now. 100% commission, calling friends and family, getting referrals, and extensive prospecting. She gave a really brief company history presentation which included a quick breakdown of commission schedules and pointed out that you continue to get paid every year that a life insurance policy is renewed, creating an ongoing pipeline of residual income. I stopped her there, because I have been sold this story before. I thanked her for her time and said that this was not a position that was going to work out.
