    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at New York Life (Fairport, NY).

    Interview

    This is a three part interview process. I have only completed the first step which was a 1/2 hour "interview" where they tell you about the job. At the end of it I had to take a personality test (which I think is available on their website) to see if I had similar answers to their top performers. If I pass that part I will be invited back for the second, longer, interview that focuses on compensation & benefits. I am not sure what the third would involve.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at New York Life.

    Interview

    I met with the interviewer and we discussed her background, my background, and how the company helps its agents succeed. We also briefly talked about how the compensation works but there is another meeting for that that occurs a week or so after the initial interview. Finally I was taken to another office to fill out a basic application that took about 10 minutes.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed 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.
