Started with a phone interview (just to screen out the applicants and gauge their interest).
Followed up with a first round 1-on-1 interview where he explained the company's goals, objectives, and pay structure.
Next step was an IQ and Personality test online, where the results were reviewed in the second interview.
Lastly, a background and drug test was required before contracting was an option.
Interview Question – Would you be alright accepting a position that is entirely commission-based? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – 100% Commission, nothing really to negotiate
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Woodmen of the World Life Insurance in December 2010.
Interview Details – The interview process is pretty straight forward. Be prepared to take a test online that the manager forwards you the link for shortly after the initial interview. Seemed like an IQ and personality test. As with any insurance carrier, ask a lot of questions, even the ones that seem too dumb to ask. Remember, the manager that is interviewing you is a SALESMAN.
Interview Question – I asked "how the pay works". View Answer
Negotiation Details – Somewhat on the "transition pay" which amounts to about $2000 the month you go to Omaha for a week.
