    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Colonial Penn Life Insurance.

    Interview

    The interview was fine. Interviewed with two managers who seemed nice. They let it be known, that this job requires hard work and that an employee is expected to succeed of be fired.

    Interview Questions

    • What was unexpected was the faulty computer. After the one-on-one interview which lasted for about 20 minutes. After which a computer simulated exam of a typical work day was taken. The computer that I took this exam on was so slow it took me three hours to complete a 40 minute test. The computer kept stopping and starting, clicking things I did not click, and ultimately leading to me, failing an exam that was of infant complexity.   Answer Question
