    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at New York Life.

    Interview Details

    I received an email from a recruiter who set up an interview at their main office. There is a series of 3 interviews. I attended the first which was geared more towards the manager/interviewer getting to know me. The next two interviews are geared toward the job expectations and the salary. I will see if the job is something I want to do after I attend the second interview. Overall the manger was very nice and easy to converse with.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at New York Life.

    Interview Details

    They have a 4 interview process, that I found to be very repetitive. I suppose to make sure that you were consistent in your answers to the questions. Each time we met we also covered a part of their business plan or how they would identify a client.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions were straight forward. What your biggest strength? Whats your biggest weakness? ETC   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    They say they don't cold call, instead they wanted me to badger my friends and family. I wasn't comfortable trying to persuade friends and family to buy policies.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at New York Life.

    Interview Details

    Very simple, the company is looking to sell you on the position and the benefits that can come with success. They really are looking to make sure you can hold conversation, and can represent the company in a positive way. There are four interviews but after the first, they focus more on what the company offers, more than your actual skills

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at New York Life in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by an manager's assistant after I posted my resume to a job website. She set up a meeting with a manager. He interviewed me then had me take a career assessment survey. After that I was to follow up with him the next day to go over my results. I passed, so I continued on to the compensation/training group interview. I chose at that point that the position was not for me.

    They found my resume on the wed, contacted by phone, set up an interview. Basically they were not interviewing me, but advertising this position, trying to convince me to work for them. Since it was 100% commission based position, i decided not to proceed.
