    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Bankers Life.

    Interview

    Super easy interview. All they did was talk to me about the company. I don't even remember being asked any of the standard interview questions like where do you see yourself in 5 years, etc.

    Interview

    I got a phone call from a lady that said that they found my resume (I didn't understand where, but I didn't applied there) and I perfectly fit the job and offered 4 different jobs from HR and up to financial advisor. This was very weird since I possess a well defined profession and am not interested in "wide range of different positions" and I really don't understand how I can perfectly fit all this different positions. The lady talked like she was reading the text and asked to come dressed in professional attire and bring my resume, despite they already had one.
    All this seemed to me strange and unprofessional and I decided not to attend.

    Management/Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Medina, OH

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bankers Life (Medina, OH) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter called me saying they came across my resume, asked me to come in the following week for an interview for a management position. She called me that morning to wish me luck and I asked again what exactly is the position for since she was so vague when we originally spoke on the phone. She said it's a management position and agent, they will get a feel for where they think I would best fit in. When I got there, there were 13 other people in the room for a "group interview". They had us fill out a form and sit down and listen to a guy talk for 45 minutes about the company. For them to call that an interview is a joke. 6 people walked out during the "interview", he went into so much detail about what annuities are and the different types of insurance they sell. It was completely inappropriate if they want to consider that an interview. At the end of the guys powerpoint he had us fill out a form about if we would be interested in moving forward... which is when I walked away. They wanted us to pay $200 a month for something that he brushed over quickly and chose not to explain, along with getting licensed before starting (again, you pay for) and if you want to go to the management route, you still do those things and then be an agent for 3 months before having the opportunity to manage. It was a complete waste of time.

    Insurance Sales Agent Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Bankers Life (Tarpon Springs, FL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I received a call based on my resume posting online. I was specifically told it wasn't a sales job and it is. It wasn't an interview at all. It was a group setting, but really just an introduction to the company. The title was financial planning/insurance specialist or some nonsense, but really it's insurance sales. Complete waste of time.

    Interview Questions

    • The few questions presented were basic knowledge and opinions. Nothing specific was included. I felt most were rhetoric even if others in the group answered.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Bankers Life (Davenport, IA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I got a random call from old lady. I don't know how they knew my phone number cause i didn't submit resume. (I assume they found my resume online and contacted me.)

    There was no interview session. They just started explaining about their company and how to do insurance sales job(why did I prepare everything just in case? what a waste of my time!)

    It is 100% commission based job. If you are okay not making money for a while or have a second job, go for it.
