Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at WoodmenLife (Rockville, MD) in May 2013.

Interview

Information provided by managers during the interview process was very selective. They only tell you what you need to know, when they want you to know it. Weeks or months later they tell you new information that would have been very helpful in making that decision whether or not to work for WoW.

Interview Questions

  • You are told upfront that you are an independent contractor, not an employee. However Area/State managers still like to micromanage to the smallest details. They don't tell you that you are a captive agent until you have already invested a couple of months of time, money, and energy into getting licensed.   Answer Question

Negotiation

They were very pleasant and agreeable in the interview/negotiation phase but play hardball when the contract is underway. Managers encourage competition rather than cooperation among the field reps.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at WoodmenLife (Cary, NC) in November 2010.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • Would you be alright accepting a position that is entirely commission-based?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    100% Commission, nothing really to negotiate

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at WoodmenLife in February 2010.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • I asked "how the pay works".   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Somewhat on the "transition pay" which amounts to about $2000 the month you go to Omaha for a week.
