Supervising Agent Interview

Anonymous Employee in Woburn, MA

Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at American Income Life in January 2015.

Interview Details

I was contacted by phone by Jeff, a hiring manager, from the LaFond Agency in Woburn, MA. They had seen my resume on Monster.com. He introduced himself and said that there were two positions they were hiring for: a customer service-type position, and a entry-level management position. He asked me what I thought to be very few questions before he invited me for a first interview.

I went in a couple days later for the initial interview. As I waited, there were more and more applicants that came in. This had me a bit off guard, for they seemed to all be applying for the same position. Competition is expected, but who knows how many other days this has happened. The process continued similarly to how the phone conversation went. I met with a hiring manager for a few minutes, and was then invited to the conference room for a presentation. (Note here that they made it seem like this guy just so happens to be in the office that day and you should check it out, when in reality it was a standard company overview/recruiting presentaion.) This was the second red flag.

The details of the presentation were inticing:
- Prospect of making a lot of money and your own schedule
- Not stuck in an office all day
- Working with young professionals like yourself, building your own career
- Lead system suggests easier sales

But this was not without some flaws:
- Needed to pay about $350 for insurance license, school, and exams.
- ONLY get paid on commission from sales, and this could take time to obtain
- Staff at this office seemed disinterested and cold, save a few members

They called me the day after this first interview to come in for a second interview. They said to bring questions, as they "move pretty quickly." I accepted the interview, but later canceled after further consideration of the points above. I did not study insurance in college, so it was not a great fit.

Interview Questions
  • I am concerned about the scripted nature of the employees. It seems that they are very keen on marketing and selling their brand to applicants. I respect this, but it makes me question how "tight-knit" their "team" is.   Answer Question
Reasons for Declining

The industry is too far from the field that I studied. I want to utilize my skills while avoiding sales positions.

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at American Income Life in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went in expecting a one on one interview and instead was thrown into a group "presentation" explaining how the company works and how successful other employees were. They made it sound like a really great opportunity and had us all fill out a packet full of questions and explained that if you received a phone call at 4-6pm, you've been selected to move on to the next step of the interview process and sent us home with a packet of information outlining the company and career track with possible salaries. The presentation specifically was geared toward "leadership" candidates, which was attractive, but then when they called me later on, they told me that everyone has to start out as a sales associate. Nice bait and switch! I chose not to pursue this company based upon reviews I read here and for the fact that I felt "swindled" or "tricked" into something that wasn't what they presented. If that's the way the company presents their employment, that's probably how they present their products, which didn't sit well with me.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions, but we were given a more of a behavioral multiple choice question packet to fill out.   Answer Question

    Company overview for the initial interview. Second interview was via phone. Third interview was an in-person, one on one interview. A mutual decision was made to invite me on board and it was the best decision I ever made.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at American Income Life in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was looking for a job and had my resume posted on Monster.com, the company saw my information and called me to come in for an interview.......while working for the company I was promoted to Supervising Agent after 2 months and then I was told had had to have 30 interviews per week booked and so did all of the other agents thats how desperate AIL is, we would hire anyone and everyone who had the slightest interest in the job because thats how you make more money..... with my expierences it was impossible to make more money than you spend this is why they want to hire so many people. Its sad to need at least 3 or 4 agents working under you to just get by with bills, they also hire so much because most people dont stay with the company over 2 months if they even last through training. I wish I had been smart enough to realize the dead end sooner than now!!
