    Insurance Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boise, ID
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bankers Life (Boise, ID).

    Interview

    The interview process in essentially a two round interview process. The first consists of a career presentation along with a "get to know you" application. This first meeting is a group application meeting with multiple applicants. If you advance to the second round, you will have received a phone call that same day if not soon after. The second interview consists of a one on one meeting with you and the branch sales manager. If the employer extends the job offer to the applicant, the next step is to obtain your insurance license at your expense of roughly $300 unless you are a veteran. During this time, you sign up for online classes that will help you study leading up to taking your exam. A final interview will help the branch sales manager establish scheduling, training and expectations for your employment.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Bankers Life (Cary, NC) in June 2017.

    Interview

    All candidates sat through a briefing session that lasted one hour. The purpose was so that we could decide if this is the right fit for us. At the end, we were asked to write no other back of the survey if we felt it wasn't the right fit for us. If we liked what we heard and felt we could do this, we were asked to write what we could bring to the company on the back of the survey. He said he would compare our resume with our answers. If they felt it was a good match, those chosen would be called by that afternoon or Monday to come back for the second phase.

    Insurance Agent 1099 Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bankers Life (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    No real interview. Made statements about the great earning potential of the job and that you are your own boss. In hindsight, should have asked more questions about the job prior to accepting it. 1099 position, so no base pay and no benefits, but 100% commission. Great company to work for, but know what you are getting yourself into.

    Interview

    They start with a presentation, which is weird, but the whole time they're bragging how much they help people and even after the second interview I left with high hopes until I got home and read these reviews and realized it was all too good to be true. Don't waste your time

    Insurance Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bankers Life (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    WOW...... It all starts with a presentation where you will get yelled and screamed at for about an hour. The lunatic giving the presentation will often stop talking about the company and scream at you to not pass judgment on his company when no said anything at all. After that you will hear a couple incoherent statements like people are going to live to 130 years old and that they don't understand why people have dogs when they could have kids instead. My personal favorite part of the presentation was when they said that they don't believe in education..... Sound like a scam yet? And to top it all off they will tell you that if you don't want to work there then you are afraid of your own success. They act like the only reason people have a career is for the money and thats it. Once again, sound like a scam yet? By the end of the presentation me and three others left because we saw this place for what it was..... a total scam.... Save yourself some time and don't even show up. They wasted a lot of my time.
