I applied online. I interviewed at LiveOps (Ferguson, MO) in July 2014.
Its awful, lengthy, and you don't know where you stand. They lure you in with promises of the moon, but you will soon find out that you are better off truly working for yourself ANYPLACE ELSE! I've never experienced such a hateful, malice filled abusive company and I strongly discourage any Insurance Agent or any Agent from working here!!!
- Will you work for anything? Will you take VERBAL ABUSE for a little bit of money? 1 Answer
There is no negotiation. All you will make as an insurance agent is 5.00 a sale and that's it! No residuals, no nothing. I barely made 80.00 last week. They lure you in with the promise of making money, but you will make none here.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at LiveOps (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2011.
after all the testing is complete they make a call to you and there is a set of questions asked you. After you complete the phone call the interviewer tells you what you did wrong and if you passed. At that time you do have the option to study again and schedule another call or just schedule another call for the next day. They were very interested if you could talk to customers, read the script exactly as written and close the sale and very importantly read all the legal verbage required for selling over the phone. That was very important because companies are regulated and fined if their agents don't read the legal information.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at LiveOps (San Jose, CA) in November 2014.
industry referral. 8 interviews. Very difficult. 2 on site trips. Great travel prep by the company. Appropriate accomodations. Me and my family were very happy with the process. The HR Staff at LO are tops!

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at LiveOps (Remote, OR).
Never really happened. Just got an email. After taking the tests, the interview was basically can you pay $85 for a background fee and also when can you start work? It was one of the easiest interviews that I have ever had. After that, I began downloading everything as well as beginning the self-paced training.
- Just how soon can you start work. There really was no interview. The only real interview was how and when can you start. After passing the initial tests, I just began the self-paced training which could be done on my own time. 1 Answer
- Really once you pass the initial tests, it is up to you to just dive into their home portal and begin your individual training sessions. 1 Answer

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at LiveOps (Redwood City, CA) in February 2011.
They told me who I would be meeting and the steps in the process. I met people from a number of different areas. I had a competing offer pending and they weren't willing to wait.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at LiveOps (Redwood City, CA) in March 2012.
Standard Panel interview. Phone screen and then technical Quickly filter out the technically inept by asking half a dozen basic technical questions – Atwood calls this “the FizzBuzz filter.” Ideally you can do this online. You’ll be amazed how many people fail. (If they’ve been recommended to you, you can skip this step.) Talk to them–in person if they’re local, voice-only if they’re not–about technical problems they’ve faced, tools they use, decisions they’ve made, pet peeves, etc. This is the “behavioral interviewing” that Google’s data shows to be actually useful. Note, however, that while you’re discussing technical concepts, you are not grilling them with technical questions that must be answered correctly. Above all, discuss their past projects, how they got them done, and the decisions they made en route. Maybe have them talk you through some of their code on Github. To reiterate my own line: Don’t hire anyone who hasn’t accomplished anything. Ever. If a developer doesn’t have a portfolio they can talk to you about, not even any side or pet projects…then don’t waste your time talking to them at all. Try to establish “cultural fit” … although be very careful that you’re just talking about work culture, eg enterprise vs. startup, and that this doesn’t lead to “subconsciously excluding people who aren’t just like you.” Don’t become a frat full of brogrammers. Finally, if they’ve gotten this far, give them an audition project. Something relatively bite-sized, self-contained, and off-critical-path, but a real project, one that will actually ship if successful. Hire them on a paid basis for a week or so to build it, and keep a close eye on their code and progress. (If you do pair programming, have them pair with your existing team.) Hire them. Or don’t.

I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at LiveOps (Austin, TX) in August 2015.
15 minute phone interview with recruiter, 1 hour phone interview with VP of HR, onsite interview with CEO and recruiter. While it didn't work out I enjoyed meeting LiveOps' CEO. He seems to "get" Austin and is a true leader. I felt that his vision for LiveOps is exciting and am dissapointed that I will not be able to work with him. I hope we meet again in the future as I believe that this would be a great environment to work in.
- Pretty typical. Went over experience and what I liked doing on the weekend which I thought was a nice change of pace. 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at LiveOps in September 2010.
All I had to do was read a script over the phone into a recorder very enthusiastically without making any mistakes. If I was not satisfied, re-record until I was satisfied before submitting. You never actually speak with a live person with this company. Nothing else was required except a decent credit report, which you pay for.

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at LiveOps (Tempe, AZ) in February 2013.
The interview process consisted of 2 phone interviews, a face-to-face, followed by 1 last phone interview. The hiring manager, HR rep, and NOC engineer I interviewed with were all extremely friendly, flexible, and easy to talk to. Overall, it took around 1 week to complete the entire interview process.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at LiveOps in October 2014.
The hiring process was an extensive questionnaire, a background check, several system checks. I was also asked to submit a recorded script read. After waiting on the background check I was selected to continue. It was a little confusing because I was offered the contract before the background was complete so I stalled on purchasing equipment. I have already started training and I am preparing to take live calls next week. The interview process from the time I filled out the application until I was contracted and started training was less than 10 days.
