    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. (Tyson's Corner, Fairfax, VA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Easy going. First there was an orientation then a one on one interview. What they offer seems crazy, but why not try it. There is an initial startup, but I'm not too worried about it.

    Insurance Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. (Milwaukee, WI) in January 2019.

    Interview

    My process began with fairly professional recruitment email from the HR representative from my state. I was able to request a phone screen time, but they were unable to match it. I ended up with a time two weeks out. At this point, I thought it was a more formal phone screen. The interviewer was very polite and called on time. However, she only asked a few light questions, and giggled a fair amount. In the end, it was clear the job was likely all cold calling and I have to pay some of the up-front costs. This is less an interview and more of a recruitment call.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. (Opelika, AL) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online and originally did not see response email as it went to my spam folder. Checked it and responded and wrote back and forth a little with the woman before having an interview set up for a week from then. There were no questions about the job, only the guy explaining what the job is like and telling me when and how to get training started up.

    Negotiation

    Was told it was commission-based so my success was upon my shoulders.
