    First it started with a phone interview, then an interview at their Denver office followed by a second in person interview. After the second interview you find out immediately if you got the job.

    College Financial Representative Interview

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    Applied for Olson Financial Group in Morristown, NJ. Very friendly on the phone, easy to talk to and love to hear about good communication skills (because the job is primarily cold-calling and expanding on established warm-markets such as friends and family). When I went in for the second and last interview, it took about 5 minutes for them to give me the job. I was a bit skeptical by how quickly they accepted me but they are legitimate and it is possible to make lots of money if you work ruthlessly and intensely to expand on your warm market.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult or unexpected, which made me skeptical.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Commission and fixed weekly stipend, negotiating was not an option.

    Interview

    the interview was rather informal and more like a conversation, the internship however is more of a sales position where they have you on the phone calling people most of the time. they expect you to use your extended family and their network to be successful in the internship.

    Insurance Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer

    Interview

    Something about yourself. Details on the resume. The whole process was pretty comfortable. The really hard part is the interviewer would give you a form and fill in contact information of 10 people into it. I think it's pretty fair . Anyway, they are recruiting sales person and I think get to know how to contact people, whether familiar or not is the first step. The recruiter who interviewed me was a really nice lady. But for some reason, I give up the chance of second round interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Find 10 person's contact information and give them to a insurance firm.   Answer Question
