    I worked at Pacific Life


    You are proud to work at a company that cares deeply about its mission and its employees.
    It is profitable, generous, and pays competitively. It is transparent. Encourages education, training, and career growth. Remarkably stable! Privately held company. No shareholders to worry about last quarter. Annual bonuses are earned by a combination of individual, divisional, and company wide goals being met - very generous.


    Due to its conservative nature as a life insurance company, it doesn't change quickly, but it is always trying to improve and in the process of changing. Some times it seems that it will never get there.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Pacific Life.

    Interview Details

    HR phone screening, in-person interview with hiring manager, and in-person interview with 5 different people across various roles. Very basic behavioral and situational interview questions (i.e. Tell me about this, tell about a time when...). In my last interview, the interviewer (a managing director) asked about my age then proceeded to blatantly harass me about my former employer being "a bunch of Wall Street convicts and thieves". It was grossly unprofessional and an embarrassment to be in the same room as this man.
