    Financial Advisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Max New York Life Insurance.

    Interview Details

    I was able to get an interview immediately after the career fair at my university. I went to first round interview not knowing what to expect. My interviewer asked me if I had any questions. I asked what would be my job responsibilities. The responsibilities for the job were to assist clients with their necessities and ultimately recommend them a financial path. Everything seemed fine until I asked her what I would be doing. She explained that I would be cold calling people to "develop my own business list". This literally meant I would have to call people I did not know, or even worse, people I knew to sell them insurance. To top that, I would need a 400 list of names as potential first customers. Finally, I found out that at that the pay if 100% commission, which means that since you will not have a customer network at the beginning, you will probably not have any income to start with. The interviewer was very nice.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Max New York Life Insurance.

    Interview Details

    Applied Online- received a call the next day. I went in for the interview a few days later, felt more like a sales pitch than an actual interview. The manager kept talking about his success, and how I can be just as successful if I work hard enough. After the interview they had me fill out a brief personality questionnaire.

    Insurance Agent Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Max New York Life Insurance in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Found the job at a job fair. When the recruiter called, she was very nice. I sat with a partner for my first interview. Honestly, it felt more like a sales pitch. My first interview consisted of maybe three questions and the rest was listening. I'm not very impressed in the "unlimited potential" angle. Especially with a sales background, I've heard it before. I have no doubt it can be a great business but it will be a grind, and I mean that like a hustle and grind all day for the first couple years to get off the ground. Don't get burnt out. A lot of people do and will.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews - 1 HR and 1 with project Manager. HR questions were general behavioral ones which didn't go into depth. The question asked by project manager were the ones related to what they expect you to do over the course of your internship within the company. They were straight in their approach.
