Assurant Health Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Inside Sales Agent Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Assurant Health.
Interview Details – They make you sell them something. Here's how to do it:
1.) briefly small talk them about what they are looking for. They came in for a reason so uncover WHY.
2.) ask them ?s to better understand how they will use whatever they came in for. Also how much they want to spend.
3.) find the product they want, briefly go over what they told you they wanted before and ask them if that's what they're looking for.
4.) Pitch your product the best you can. Highlight the things they mentioned to you about using it. At least 2 items.
5.) ask if they've got any ?s
6.) ask if the product will work for them, and once you get yes you tell them the price. Knowing the price will be under their budget.
7.) assume sale. So jerry the stove will be on the road at 3pm Tomo, so I just wanted to make sure we have your address right, so I show u at...
BOOM! That will get u hired. Or just wait until open enrollment they hire anyone really.

Entrepreneurial Intern Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at Assurant Health.
Interview Details – I interviewed for this position over 3 weeks ago. At the time I had another offer on the table, so I mentioned to the HR rep that I would like an answer at her earliest convenience. At the end of a 5 hour interview, meeting with 7 different team members, the response was overwhelmingly positive. The next week I asked the HR rep if she would be able to give me a date when I would have an answer by. Here I am, 3 weeks later, with no answer. Thankfully I accepted the other position because I had a bad gut feeling about this company and the hiring manager. I can't speak for the whole company, but the entrepreneurial team is simply disrespectful. They string along multiple interviewees in parallel. Not to mention, the odds of a full-time offer after the successful completion of the 3 month internship is 1 in 5 based on their previous hires.
Interview Question – The hiring manager asked me to explain my previous startup business model via business model canvas diagram. Answer Question

Interview Details – I applied for this through my school's career services website, got an interview through that. Had half an hour where she went through the general internship process, what I knew about Assurant Health, some HR behavioral questions and some actuarial type questions.
