Financial Representative Interview

Financial Representative

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Guardian Life in November 2011.

Interview Details – Lengthy!
The first interview is 1 on 1 with an agency head (GA)
There are then 2 tests one is a personality test the other is a skills test
Then there is a second interview with a sales manager
Then you fill out a background check and then a handwriting analysis
There is a third interview with the GA and Sales Manager- Go over background check and compensation
There is a fourth interview where the requirements are explained to get on contract
There is a fifth interview where you sign the pre-contract agreement
You go through pre-contract (working with no pay)
A month or two goes by (sometimes 3) then you go on contact and start getting paid...

But all this is worth it if you are good at sales and can handle a month or two with no pay. This process means they are serious about you, and that they don't just give this job to anyone.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you really struggled with something, how did you get through it?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Your salary is based on your pre-contract production so there is little in the negotiation unless you have/do an amazing job in the pre-contract phase.
