Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. (Whitehorse, SD) in August 2009.

Interview

They basically will except anyone, so there really isn't an interview. Basically they just give you a presentation on why you should work for them and "how much money you can make".

A professional business appearance is necessary. Tell me about yourself. What are your strengths and weaknesses. Do you have reliable transportation? Are you willing to travel? Are you able to work on your own? How do you feel about making cold-calls? Phone calls?

    Interview Questions

    • How do you feel about working for commission only? Are you financially able to do so until while you are building your relationships and acquiring accounts? Do you have existing relationships with life and brokers and/or business owners?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co..

    Interview

    I was scheduled for an interview and when I got to the office location no one was in the building. I called the number I had been given and I emailed the person who had scheduled my interview and until now…no response! very unprofessional and a waste of my time. Not worth the drive, my effort, and the money I spent on a babysitter.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co..

    Interview

    A territory recruiter reached out via email to schedule a call with me, and then never responded to my email response. A week later I got another email from the recruiter, asking if we could schedule a call. I respond by email once again, asking if she read my previous message. No response. A month later I get ANOTHER email asking for a phone interview; this time I leave a voicemail on their direct line, figuring I'd hear back this way. Again, no response. A month after this, or two months after the original messages, I get a fourth email about the same opportunity. At this point I'm annoyed at the poor communication and record-keeping and use all communication channels to ask this recruiter to stop contacting me; I only heard back via text message, of all things. I am disappointed with the recruitment practices of Colonial Life, assuming there are established practices to begin with. Thing is, I'm not even looking for work as I'm already employed... I hope this is not the standard for how Colonial Life treats hopeful job-seekers.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. (Grand Island, NE).

    Interview

    Very basic questions about the life insurance business. It was more of a sales pitch of the company. This is a two part interview and with two people in the room. I got the second interview, but it was scheduled to far apart, so I changed my mind and cancelled the interview.

    Interview

    The whole process was informal and non professional, and only 1 interviewer showed up in this process, which made like a joke interview. Also, the first run wasted all candidates time since nothing interview happened just PPT that presented their company product and how it operated.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. (Waltham, MA).

    Interview

    Had a phone interview before an in person interview. Went for my interview that was at 2 PM... around 35 minutes later it was clear they forgot about me. I was approached by someone else before headed out, who was very nice, but I’m no longer interested in the position. TWO hours later I received a phone call with a very weak apologetic voicemail. I was iffy on this interview going into it and this was pathetic.
