    Intern Interview

    Interview Details

    Fairly simple. Met and discussed with a licensed agent as well as a partner of the company. In total there were three interviews. All of the interviews/meetings lasted no longer then thirty minutes. Interviews were in a relaxed environment. I was nervous going into it but felt comfortable once things got started.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were relatively general. How to deal with rejection, what are your world concerns, your greatest skill to attribute to the company. They threw a curve ball by asking what my favorite animal was and why.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Fairly strung out. Not completely clear as to what compensation would be.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at New York Life in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Contacted via email by HR to set up a preliminary behavioral interview. During this interview, I got to specify what areas I was interested in. Went on to have a second/final-round interview with the CVP that would become my manager. Was more like an informational interview with my manager than a behavioral/resume interview for me.

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

    Interview Details

    Relatively easy one-round interview. The questions were almost entirely behavioral in nature with a few simple technical questions thrown in. The interviewer was mostly trying to get a sense of how I would perform in a group with other interns as well as with potential and existing clients.

    Met NYL recruiters at a university career fair and applied for position online. Received phone call from recruiter to schedule a first round phone interview with HR. Second round interview was also conducted on the phone, this time with the hiring manager. Overall, questions were general and easy: "Why New York Life?" "What do you hope to get out of this internship?"

    I was promised many things so my negotiation was relatively easy. However, it was the minimal results that were not pleasing. Everything was said yes to, then when it was expected, the manager and others rarely came through.
