    Pros

    Good working environment, good working conditions, good compensation for what they expect. The work can be tedious but it's not difficult. Expectations have gotten more realistic over the last few years.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement are largely dependent on who you socialize with, not how hard you work or how good you are at your current job. Lots of bat-shit politics. Crappy health care benefits and minimal retirement benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a strategy and stick with it. Trying to be something you're not hasn't worked, so just be who you are.

    Insurance Sales Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Torrance, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Transamerica (Torrance, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I had a one on one with a lady who never indicated her role or position, she did have her own office, but no business card. Attempts to acquire straight answers ( I have been in the business 30 years and she said she has been doing insurance for 10 years) was impossible. Vague, evasive, hyperbolic, circular.

    Interview Questions

    • Basically do you fog a mirror! Stupid and desperate with time and cash!!   1 Answer
    • Asked me to come back to a "cattle call" or Open House for a presentation on an evening.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    My due diligence indicated the ethics, corporate culture, and credibility and legitimacy of this "opportunity" was very low to nonexistent.
