Insurance Agent Interview

Insurance Agent
North Hollywood, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Bankers Life & Casualty in August 2013.

Interview Details – The hiring process lasted about an hour, we were asked to join a group for panel interview. Than they made us do a personality test. After we had a one on one interview with our managers, it was easy and straight to point interview. They disclose very little information about the company.

Interview Question – Questions are simple and straight to the point. Any person can answer their questions with ease.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They expected me to get Life Insurance license in less than a week while they were watching us study for the exam. Very unsettling, to have your supervisor , watch you study. After all we are paying for our exams, and we can work independently, or with another company. Some people walk out on the first day, it was not for them.

Insurance Agent Interview

Insurance Agent
East Fishkill, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Bankers Life & Casualty in May 2014.

Interview Details – There is a three step process: a presentation, a written test, and a one-on-one interview. The presenter will draw the line in the sand pretty early on, or as he put it "polarize" you from the very beginning. When you walk in you receiver their packet and a short test. The info is interesting, but not as thorough as a personal online search.

Interview Question – How interested/invested are you in this position are you really?   View Answer

I am not interested in having my time wasted.

Programmer Analyst/Web Developer Interview

Programmer Analyst/Web Developer
Parsippany, NJ

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Bankers Life & Casualty in February 2012.

Interview Details – I was an unemployed web designer when received a phone call from Bankers. I told them I was not interested in sales jobs but was asked to attend the interview anyway to learn about other employment opportunities with the company.

I was very disappointed finding a large group seminar instead of an interview that talked about sales position ONLY.

Worst interview ever! Waist of time!

Interview Question – No questions asked. This was Bait and Switch.   Answer Question

Interview Details – Bankers recruits by bringing a group of potential candidates into a room, markets the benefits of working for Bankers and then informing you your being considered for a position as an independent agent. Though they offer a Q&A period, the answers are generic and lacking substance. After the presentation they ask you to submit your personal info and any questions you may have on a form and include a resume if you have one. They only respond if they like your questions.
