    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Bankers Life (Parsippany, NJ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was placed in a room with twenty other people while someone from the company described what Banker's life was about. Afterwards you are asked to fill out a questionnaire based on their presentation. If you fill out the questionnaire to their liking, then they will call you back for a second interview. This job was not what I was looking for.

    Insurance Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in University Place, WA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Bankers Life (University Place, WA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    When I got an email about interviewing with this company I felt excited at the prospect of working at such a good job. Once I got to the interview however, it was a group presentation rather than an interview. The set up made me feel that their credibility was questionable. It started off with what seemed like a lot of sob stories and "I was down and out.." until "Bankers Life came along and now all of us who were destitute and dying are making $40,000 a year and up". It is a great concept but, I felt like I was being sold rather than selling myself to them for a job. They also let you know at the end that start up costs for the license, etc will be about $300 coming out of your wallet. Doesn't sound very legitimate to me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Bankers Life (Las Vegas, NV) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Well I was surprised to be going a group interview but I could see why after hearing her sell me on selling final cost insurance to the baby boom generation later to find out Bankers Life doesn't even help you pay for the license and no base pay during training. A great opportunity if you can pay your bills for 2 months with out income
