Benefits Advisor Interview

Benefits Advisor
Schaumburg, IL

I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed 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.

Benefits Advisor Interview

Benefits Advisor
Irving, TX

I applied in-person - interviewed at Association Member Benefits Advisors in September 2010.

Interview Details – I interviewed with a Manager and took 2 tests for aptitude that day. We had a very comfortable interview. I was already licensed to sell Life & Health products and the company seemed like a good fit. I was a bit apprehensive about the 100% straight commission but she assured me I could be trained the AMBA way so I could learn the skills I needed. This made me feel better about sales since I did not feel that I had enough experience to know how to be really successful. She said they would help me until I was successful and they did!

Interview Questions

  • Where would I like to be in 5 years?   View Answer
  • What did I consider to be my best quality that might help me in sales?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate but I wanted to know why some agents were successful and why some do not make it. I was told they get too impatient about a big salary starting out so they don't wait until the renewals start building your business. She said if I would work hard and not focus too much on salary that I could do well and be successful as an agent with AMBA - and she was right!
