    Contacted by MassMutual Rep for a 1:1 interview after applying online. First interview was an overview of the company and products they offer, basic questions about myself (i.e. Do you have a large contact base, would you be willing to work off commission, etc...). Second interview consisted of a more in depth view of the company and systems/processes used to prospect and keep clients, and an offer.

    Financial Services Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at MassMutual in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Met with hiring manage, interview lasted a little more than an hour. Explained how to job worked either got $30,000 base + 50% commission or no base salary and 90% commission of your sales. Not sure about sales positions myself, they make me a little nervous but I thought it might be worth a try. You only receive a small stipend for the 2 week training that you have to attend in San Antonio, TX that doesn't even cover your food for the time so the rest is out of your own pocket. No compensation for mileage or cell phone either.

    SAP Basis Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Springfield, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days - interviewed at MassMutual in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Even though I was referred to the hiring manager by a mutual acquaintance, I was still asked to log onto the Mass Mutual web site and register myself into their system. Then from this site you have to select what job you are applying for and attach your resume. I just found all this odd. Not hard at all, just odd.
    I received a phone call from the HR rep who proceeded to screen me with standard interview questions: Are you currently working. Why are you looking to leave? Explain some of your current responsibilities etc etc. A follow up phone interview was scheduled with the Basis Team manager and their lead Basis Admin. Started off with one on one with the manager. She was very nice. Gave a quick review of their environment and what they were looking for. When the Lead joined the call (also very nice) he proceeded to ask some technical questions. It wasn't a grilling by any means. The tone of the interview was very cordial. Following this 2nd interview, the manager said she would speak to HR to set up a time for me to come visit the office and meet the rest of the team. No offer has been made, and i have yet to hear from HR.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at MassMutual in February 2008.

    Interview Details

    Very short and straight forward.

    Had to take a "personality test" that was primarily questions like "sometimes I feel hopeless" and asked if you agreed or disagreed. Yep.

    There were two interviews, one with the recruiter and one with the general agent. Traditional interview with simple questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at MassMutual in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview. Questons they asked were why sales and why mass mutual. They also ask you to rank yourself from 1-10 in competitiveness. Seems like they use the same questions for all the interviews because allthe questions they asked, I've already seen on glassdoor. I think not having sales experience probably hurt me the most

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at MassMutual in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview consisted of four 1 on 1 interviews with actuaries and a lunch with two students in the program. Employees were very friendly and were down to earth people. The student program also seemed to be well organized. Questions on the interview were pretty standard and nothing too technical was asked.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to be an actuary? Are you fully committed to taking all exams?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Mainly because of location in Springfield, MA. If the program had been closer to where I lived, I might have taken it.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Enfield, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at MassMutual in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of four 1:1 interviews, all with actuaries from different departments. After the first two interviews, I had lunch with two Actuarial Students who recently became FSA's. The interviews on the whole were straight forward; one of the interviewers didn't even really ask me standard questions, we just ended up in a discussion about one of my volunteer experiences. The first 1:1 interview was 45 minutes, the other three were 30 minutes. A few business days later, someone from HR called me and told me that MassMutual would not pursue my application.
