Anonymous Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Guardian Life.

Interview Details – It can be very, very quick. Just focus on the basics- know your work history and sell yourself. Anything you can display to verify previous success should bode well for you. Trial close, close and then try to close again...if you don't show you can close and have determination they won't consider you...but make sure you have the acumen to do it correctly- youtube/google it if you don't know.

Interview Question – I can't really recall anything tricky.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Through a recruiter. The one-year guarantee for experienced reps is 50 - 75k. But I am sure this will be decreasing soon.
