Agent Interview

Austin, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Family Heritage Life Insurance in May 2014.

Interview Details – It was an easy interview. They were selling me as much as I was selling them. If you want to start a career in sales, they will teach you a proven way to do it but be sure to educate yourself on the insurance industry. You should try to follow someone in the field before you commit your finances and time to this career

Interview Question – They asked me to approach them as if I were on the job.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – they offered me a low contract

Sales Agent Interview

Sales Agent
Findlay, OH

I applied through other source and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Family Heritage Life Insurance in June 2012.

Interview Details – The interview was simply the manager going through exactly what Family Heritage is and seeing if I thought I was a good fit. If you believe it is you get to start the costly journey to your insurance certification. Once you get your certification they send you to either Dallas or Nashville for a week for your training. This time, the costs are on them, which is nice. After the week is up you head back to your home office to start working.

Interview Question – There honestly weren't that many questions. They give you a lot of information and let you make your own decision about whether you'd be right for the position. Beware. If cold calling sales is not your cup of tea, then tread no further. If it is, you have the opportunity to make a LOT of money.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation. Salary is purely commission based.

Sales Agent Interview

Sales Agent

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Family Heritage Life Insurance.

Interview Details – Found the ad on Craig's list and applied. Received a call the next day asking if I could come interview. I interviewed with my sales director, team leader and the VP of the Texas district. Interview was very laid back, questions were asked about specific things on my resume. After they asked questions about myself they started to demo me the product. Then they asked how many people I could sell it to a day and asked for my overall interest in the position on a scale from one to 10. After that they offered me the position and flew out to sales school 5 days later.

What they are looking for is someone who is driven, very personable and can be highly productive with out someone telling them what to do.

In order to qualify for the job, you must have reliable transportation and cannot have any felonies because you have to get an insurance license to sell.

Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Family Heritage Life Insurance in July 2012.

Interview Details – There were actually five steps to the process, beginning with an initial telephone interview with the State Director. This followed the same week with two separate personal interviews at the office, then a follow-up meeting the next week with the team leader who would be field training me. The process was consumated with a final "signing" meeting where we entered into a written contract agreement.

Sales Professional Interview

Sales Professional

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Family Heritage Life Insurance in June 2010.

Interview Details – Initially, I was contacted by phone and had a ten minute interview. The job was described as sales to business owners and CEO's. I was invited to a group interview which consisted of a sales presentation to the potential candidates complete with video presentations about the company. Followup interview was again by phone. The position required an insurance license paid for by the applicant. This was acceptable for the position as described in the interview, however, at training it became clear that the job was door to door sales to individuals and not to business as described. Training involves air travel, hotel and a week of classes with other new hires. Memorization of presentation is required. If new hire does not stay with the position, they are billed for all training costs.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – Nothing was negotiable. I advise applicants to research the company before the group interview. I would attempt to negotiate costs for insurance license if I had it to do again. I truly believe they would have hired any warm body that was willing to absorb the costs.
