    Life Insurance Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bethesda, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at New York Life (Bethesda, MD).

    Interview

    By far the best interview I've had so far, mainly because it didn't feel like an interview, it was more like a casual conversation with a friend.
    Everything became clear after the first conversation and I left with no doubt regarding the job applied for.
    Not frightening at all, very friendly

    Life Insurance Agent Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at New York Life (Lubbock, TX).

    Interview

    First interview was just a get to know you and very relaxed with a personality test before I left. Second interview was a little more about the job and telling you what the job entails. Third interview was how the pay works and how you generate names and people for you to call on. They tell you no cold calling, but once you are done with your own friends and family list that's what the job would consist of. Very good people there though.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at New York Life in June 2015.

    Interview

    The first interview was merely a compatibility assessment by the Partner. He was asking about my experiences and why would I want to work in this industry. Discussion was based around the job process and training, and concerns and questions that I had about the company and the industry. Information was limited, "we'll discuss that if the process continues". Invited from that meeting to second phase, to discuss further marketing and compensation for an agent. The third step was to meet a managing partner in another city. Still in the process, and waiting to hear from recruiter. Idid not get an offer or decline at this posting.

    Financial Services Professional Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at New York Life (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    There was a 30 minute assessment test on a provided computer which required an internet connection. Followed by a person to person interview with the Recruiter, who was very pleasant and only asked very few and basic questions. It was not a very thorough interview at all. Also you have to make sure you bring proper id just to be admitted into the high rise building located near Wall Street.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you know about our company?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    The job description was very vague, and the follow up requirements were never communicated to me. This an awful way to start a job. How can you expect the employee to be excited if they are constantly left in the dark and confused.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at New York Life (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Three interviews that last over an hour. A lot of prying into my personal life which I felt was borderline inappropriate. The interviewer was nice but I felt that he was telling me what I wanted to hear. He did mention that I would be required to try to sell to friends and family.
