Life Insurance Agent Interview

Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at New York Life in July 2014.

Interview Details

I was contacted by an manager's assistant after I posted my resume to a job website. She set up a meeting with a manager. He interviewed me then had me take a career assessment survey. After that I was to follow up with him the next day to go over my results. I passed, so I continued on to the compensation/training group interview. I chose at that point that the position was not for me.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at New York Life in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process involves a series of three interviews with the current manger. They do not care all that much about your previous work history, unless you have worked in the insurance field before. They are very picky with whom they hire and you must look and act professionally to even be considered. Even if you are called back for another interview, that is when they sell you the greed about being an insurance salesman. They are looking for greasy people to push insurance.
