Life Insurance Sales Agent Interview

Positive Experience
Easy Interview


The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at New York Life (Pittsburgh, PA) in December 2011.


Very easy. They're trying to figure out if you're a total lazy bum that can't even sell to your folks. If you are not that kind of person, you move on. The process is very professional and they make you feel at ease. If you don't know the insurance business, barriers to entry are almost nonexistent. It's staying and building a client base that's a butt-kicker, especially if it's commission/bonus-based like NYL.

Not there yet. Have me doing the 10 Personal Market Questionnaire to see if I have the minimum initiative to ask 10 people about life insurance.
