    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tyler, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tyler, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Association Member Benefits Advisors.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted for an interview. We met at a local hotel lobby, which I found a little odd. The interview was very informal, which was good. She said she liked me so much she was going to do the second part of the interview process at the same time.

    Interview Questions
    • She did not ask questions regarding my experience or how I think I would do in certain sales situations. It was almost like she was selling me on the job.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    It seemed like a scam. You have to pay for training and licenses to work for them. I have never heard of a reputable company making sales associates pay to be trained.

    Benefits Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schaumburg, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schaumburg, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Association Member Benefits Advisors in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted via email from the district manager to come into the Schaumburg office. I came in with reservations because this was A) a sales job, which is a job I hate and have done twice before with little to no success, b) straight commission, which can be hit or miss depending on the type of sales job, and C) the last job I wanted to take, so all of those I addressed in the interview. The district manager eased my fears a little by sharing her personal story with me about how she rose in the ranks of the company, as well as assured me that this position and AMBA are different because of their proven track record of delivering what they promise to teachers and employees of AMBA. I have given myself six months to give it a try as I'm trying to keep an open mind about it, but thanks to doing my research beforehand through Glassdoor and the BBB, I didn't go into this interview with blinders on.

    Interview Details

    This is the first interview and it went well. Very through and I did a 12minute math test. The interview was about the company and what they offer. The best thing I found out is that they give residual so eventually you could retire on the work you have already done.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Association Member Benefits Advisors.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted initially by phone regarding my resume. After a brief phone screen I was invited to come in for an initial interview. The manager asked about my previous work experience, etc. and then they called me back for a 2nd interview. They asked me to bring a detailed list of questions to 2nd interview and the manager answered all of them in detail. All the details were explained clearly without hiding anything. I got a good vibe from the recruiter and everything that was promised was delivered, and then some.

    Client Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Association Member Benefits Advisors in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Met District Manager at a career fair. Was invited out to local office in Schaumburg, IL the next day. Local office has since moved to Lisle, IL. Very professional and nice office. Was shown a power point presentation on the district managers laptop. Asked for a few days to research company prior to making a decision.

    Interview Questions
    • How would I handle a bad day? Example-- What if you set 3 appointments 2 hours away and your 1st appointment has a note on the door (sorry have to reschedule)--- 2nd appointment says the husband had a tee time, but you can present to me (wife)----- 3rd appointment has clear underwriting requirement issues they might not be able to meet (you see wheel chair and/or oxygen tank)   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    This process felt more like AMBA trying to find a warm body! Not really interviewing me to see if I was a proper fit. Would I represent the company values correctly? My resume does not reflect my selling background. Was told that was ok but no probe into my selling experience and why I felt like I would be a good candidate.
