    I have been working at Great-West Financial full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They help you with your education. Cover parking garage, health insurance for you and your family, paid vacation, bonus, life insurance and 401k. You can move around within the company for different positions. Excellent training, they believe in quality, so they make sure you know and understand what you are doing to help you become excellent in what you do. Amazing co-workers, seniors very knowledgeable, they help staff and we work as a team.

    Cons

    I work with investments and is a very fast paced environment, but it is doable. The stress is manageable once you understand procedures and what needs to be done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers are very knowledgeable, hard workers and team players. Keep up the good work, this is the first company that I work for that I see they hire good people with good attitude and skills.

    Retirement Specialist - Client Services Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Overland Park, KS
    Anonymous Employee in Overland Park, KS
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Great-West Financial.

    Interview Details

    This was for the call center position in Overland Park, KS. The application itself was super short and easy with an upload of my cover letter and resume/cv. Began with phone interview which included an overview of the job. In the phone interview they checked to see if you were interested in moving forward and doing the steps required in the job. It was short and I think I was only asked 2 real interview questions. Tell me about your work experience/customer service experience. Tell me a time when you went above and beyond for a customer. Second step was an in person interview with two managers at the same time. They took turns asking questions and had pages to fill in with notes. Began again with outline and description of job and outline of expectations of training. Questions included: how can you handle toggling between multiple screens, applications, and tabs? Tell me about a time you went above and beyond for a company. And a customer... Tell me about a time when you disagreed with a policy change that you had no control over. Tell me about your worst job. Tell me about your ideal job. Tell me how you use organization to stay productive.
