    I went in for my initial interview and spent most of my time just getting to know the interviewer. For the most part he just went over the structure of the company and how he came to work for them. He showed me how rep's get paid and we spoke in length about how profitable this industry can be. After that, I was called back for a second interview. It was then that I was offered the position.

    Associate Financial Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Springfield, MA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at MassMutual (Springfield, MA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    It was a two-on-one interview. Brought resumes to the interview. One of the branch managers glanced over it and began with a scripted line of questions, followed by a small presentation of company stats. Obvious from the get-go that this was going to be a sales position. Huge emphasis on pushing insurance rather than security-related products. The direction is very much self-dependent on generating your own book of business outside of "their training" which mainly consists of Sandler.com stuff as well as some Brian Morgan sales literature. From the looks of it they are mainly reaching out to a clientele that is more middle-income. Interview was followed up by a psych test which tried to goad if you knew a lot of people. The process was smooth, timely, great office, just very sales intensive.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at MassMutual (San Antonio, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was a group interview. It was more of an info session. The specific job ended up being more of a sales position for insurance. The woman was very polite and enthusiastic and the interview left with the group of interviewees responsible for contacting for further information. The first interview was mostly an information session and I need not continue with the opportunity.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at MassMutual (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    I was contacted within a day of posting on an internet job board. They were accommodating to my schedule for an interview with a follow up confirmation email. Everyone one was very nice and my interviewer was not intimidating at all. Luckily I did research on the job before going as they were not very informative on the day to day activities. Pros: Some sort of training that may be worth it. A stipend during training that may be decent money, they didn't provide a number Cons: You have to find your own customers through cold calling or friends. Post training, only commission.
