The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at New York Life in March 2010.

Interview Details – I applied through my college career website and was offered an interview the following week. I met with the head of a local office for an interview that lasted around an hour. After the interview, I took an online personality test with it implied that I would advance no further if I failed. Apparently I passed as he called the following day and wanted another interview on-site in his office. All went well in this interview and he offered me a job on the spot. I wasn't ready to commit yet so he told me I could take a week and come back the next week with a list of "practice leads".

Interview Question – What is something about you that will get in the way of your success in this career?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – After given a practice lead sheet, which asked for 10 friends or family to offer three leads themselves, the whole thing just gave a crappy vibe. I didn't really want a career of pestering and bugging my family and friends simply so I could gain a commission.
