    Application

    I applied online. The process took a 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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at MassMutual (Springfield, MA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Many different interviews, including a panel. Does not look like one person coordinated or talked woth others, about the candidates or the position. Left doubts who was running the place. Watch IT jobs, most IT jobs are in the business not in IT.

    Interview Questions

    • There was no difficult questions, but since this company s not cost or schedule driven, I suggest ou talk about scope.   1 Answer

    Applied online and interviewed for a few minutes with a representative. That same representative asked me to come in to MassMutual's office here locally and talk further.
