    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at GNY Insurance Companies.

    Interview Details

    I saw GNY was hiring entry level positions in the paper in March and applied then. They didn't contact me until 2 months later when they asked if I was still interested and called me in for an interview. I went to the interview and interviewed with the recruiter, the trainer, and 2 VP's of the company. The recruiter emailed me a few hours later and basically told me I had the job pending a background check. A week later I got the official offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 7+ monthsinterviewed at GNY Insurance Companies in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Although there was a misinterpretation of my passion to want to bring my confirmed successful track record as a marketing manager to GNY Insurance Companies it would be extremely disappointing to not have an opportunity to be a part of this firm. I approached them as the research I did showed GNY to be an exceptional company from the top to the bottom as well as their product line and potential for profitability for many years to come. Their HR department was extremely gracious, polite and enjoyeable people. Mr. & Ms. Heck were very intelligent forward thinking leaders whose vision would be a pleasure to strategically map out a short and long term marketing plan. I found the atmosphere and people to be welcoming and comforting. This company has the potential to profitably double in 10 years with the current leadership that is in place and the right person leading their marketing strategy.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult or unexpected questions but truly pay attention as they have a vision and they will require a very talented person in order to have an opportunity to put it in place.   Answer Question
