I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at New York Life in March 2009.

Interview Details – My interviewer was very persistent and did not allow me enough time for responses. She was very rude and at times, stated that I would not get the position. But New York Life usually initiates a phone interview with all applicants. I highly recommend treating the phone interview like an actual interview

Interview Question – How did you hear about our company.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at New York Life in March 2011.

Interview Details – I had one initial phone interview with HR just talking about basic behavioral questions and what type of internship I was interested in. About a month later I had another phone interview with a manager in the division specific to what I was interested in. In both interviews the questions were mostly behavioral and about my previous internship experience.
