    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Very Short overview of your resume with a few leadership questions. Most of the interview was about finding out what I had done in the past jobs and what was my reason for applying. Compensation plan description was used to motivate me into taking the job. After the interview be ready to be unpaid for a month or longer in order to get licensed by the state and company and wait for materials to get in ( business cards ).

    Interview Questions

    • How have you displayed self discipline in the workplace?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Its a commission based job so there is no negotiation. Be ready to not be licensed or paid for the first 30+ days. Taking the insurance test takes a week of studying then you need to be licensed by the company and that takes 1-2 weeks then your business cards need to come in 1-2 weeks.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. (Renton, WA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    LOL.. this is like every other 1099 JOB!! You work for your self!! FREE!! You work with and for rookie managers. Therefore this is one of the easiest job in sales to get!! No sales experience of anykind needed. They are hiring anyone that can afford to work for FREE without any benefits for a year and on a 1099. They don't pay for anything nor testing nor licensing. It takes a month to pass the test and 90 days from that to make a sale and another 90 days to get your 1st check. It takes a year before your covering expenses. You should expect you to work/train 7AM to 9PM for a full year. Mamangment works harder on hiring your replacement then working with you in the field.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work here was asked over and over?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They try to tell you over and over.... your a 1099 not W2. They are interviewing hundreds a month. Hoping one will work for FREE for 90 days ! If they really want you... and believe in you, They'll cover all classes and license and more. Plus give you a free computer and phone, plus more. Hold out for all that and more.
