    Great culture, committed people, it was the most "human" place I have ever worked - meaning there was a genuine care for people.


    Definite "clicks", but you will find that anywhere. Career paths could be spelled out a bit more clearly, but many times you could create your own opportunities.

    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CNL Financial (Orlando, FL) in September 2012.


    There were three separate interviews. The first being a normal phone screen, the second being and panel-like group interview, and then the last being with the president/head of your division. Very long process (took me about 3 weeks to get all interviews done). The position itself has had shifting deadline dates since then.
