Insurance Agent Interview

Insurance Agent
Brea, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at MetLife in March 2014.

Interview Details – I got the opportunity to get interviewed by met life brea branch. Very professional hiring process. Interview focuses on what you want with your life and if you are available for the job. I advanced for the second interview and given the package to study for the next interview however i didnt feel like i should be in insurance sales. So i didnt pursue the next step. In general if you are ambitious and want to work for commission only. This job is for you

Interview Question – Are you ok to work for commission only?   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Insurance Agent Interview

Insurance Agent
Tampa, FL

I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at MetLife in January 2012.

Interview Details – One of the major issues with a company that has high turnover is that the hiring managers frequently lack the experience to conduct a proper interview. Having managed sales people before, I was shocked at the simplicity of the process. Truly made me feel that they were just looking for bodies and not interested in my actual experience or abilities.

Interview Question – None really come to mind as being difficult questions. Easy to get hired, tough to meet goals and hang on.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate a higher base salary than their average due to my experience, but it still was only for a short period of time.
