    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Thrivent Financial.

    Interview Details

    Professional process. I was contacted by a recruiter, but not hounded... invited for a meeting prior to the interview where I was free to ask questions. Senior management was the final interview, which I found to be helpful. Very professional and prompt group of people, but senior management was exceptional.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Thrivent Financial in December 2007.

    Interview Details

    I had a face to face interview, then I came back for the personality/skills test. Then I had a 1 on 1 interview with one of the senior partners(new rep managers). Then it took forever to get my fingerprints, background check, approved for testing, etc...

    Interview Questions

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Thrivent Financial in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had several interviews. First with the recruiter, then with the person that would be my launch manager, and then with the managing partner. They were very clear that the interview process was as much for me as it was for them, and that they wanted to make sure I thought it over thoroughly and knew what I was in for.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Thrivent Financial in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview is pretty easy. Thrivent would rather you be good at customer service than make money. They are really looking for people to be independent and driven. They don't do a good job of accurately explaining the large amout of time and large amount of your own cash needed to make it the business. The recruiters have a good portion of their compensation tied to hiring people, so they are pretty easy to hire someone.

    If you are licensed you can try to negociate a signing bonus, if not there really isn't any negociations available.
