Application Details

I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at New York Life in September 2013.

Interview Details

As I understand it is a 4 part interview process.

I just finished the first part of the interview (the first round), and it was a very simple one. I applied to the position online through Monster, and a recruiter for New York Life reached out to me the next day with a personalized email saying that he would be delighted to have me come for a preliminary interview.
I went for my interview the following day, and I have to say that their building is very conveniently located- right next to Grand Central. My wait in the lobby was really short, and the Senior Representative that I met was really nice and he was very thorough when it came to describing New Life Insurance Co and why it would be a good place to begin my career.
After a 45min chat where he asked me simple questions about myself, my background, my goals, etc... He had me take an online assessment to see, on top of the preliminary face-to-face, if I was a good fit for the firm and if my values line up with those of the company. It only took ten minutes or so to complete, and it was very simple.
Several hours after my interview had ended, I received another email from the Senior Representative thanking me for coming to the interview, and saying that it had been a pleasure to meet me. The email also contained several pages of literature about New York Life Insurance Co. and he wanted me to give it a quick read and get back to him with a well thought-out response. Nothing too complicated. After my response, he said that he'll be in touch with me regarding a second round interview, where I will learn more about the Company, the position, and meet the Senior Partner.

I have to say that so far the interview process has been quick, and New York Life seems like a great place to start my career.

Interview Questions
  • One has to be super honest when answering the questions. All questions are easy but they are subjective. Give clear and concise answers and back them up with why you think your answer is correct. For example, they asked me: How much do you think an insurance sales person earns when compared to other sales people? How much do you think you deserve to earn your first year? How many hours make a successful salesman? What motivates you?   View Answer
