    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at New York Life (Edina, MN) in August 2013.

    Interview

    4 interviews with projects (homework) to prepare for the next. Your work must be satisfactory just to advance to the next interview. This involves interviewing family, friends, neighbors, and other acquaintances to prepare. They also test your skills to identify places or businesses as sales opportunities. One of the most challenging processes I've been through but the opportunity is great if it is a good fit for you. It turned out to not be for me.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, you start part time with no base salary, only commission.

    Solid interview. Went for two meetings and after the second meeting I gathered all the information I needed in deciding that this was not a job for me.

    It's a 3-4 step interview process depending on your Recruiting Partner. After your 1st interview, you will have to take a personality test before you leave. If your personality fits the position you will move on to the next round. You will also have to attend a few meetings to insure this is the right fit for you.
