    Life Insurance Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Urbana, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Howe Insurance Services (Urbana, OH) in August 2016.

    Interview

    First you apply on their website, you fill out a form asking for more information.

    Next a senior vice president calls you and asks some questions to see if you are a good fit.

    Then a mentor calls and does the same except they set up a ride along with them.

    Once all that's done and they like what you've said and they think you'll be a good fit for this line of work, it's up to you to if you want the job or not.

    If all goes well and you like what you see, sign some papers and get to work! I suggest you go and get your insurance license before the ride along point of it, they're not giving you a free trip to wherever they're flying you for the ride along.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lafayette, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Howe Insurance Services (Lafayette, IN).

    Interview

    I was recommended for a position through a friend who had worked in the territory I sales managed with another company. I was required to listen to and then demonstrate I'd understood the Howe sales process. This was not a "quick" process. Other than verifying my sales background and financial stability, there's not much I recall of the interview, vetting process.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview took place almost eight years ago and I don't remember anything daunting. My previous success in sales and references did most of the talking for me.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no "negotiating", The Howe's offered the best package available to me at the time.

    Insurance Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Howe Insurance Services.

    Interview

    Interview was very comfortable. First was over the phone to find out about myself and my past work experiences. He also explained more about the company and the job opportunity. I could tell that a lot of weight was put on my ability to prove I was a self-starter or self-disciplined. As this is a commission job, he wanted to know that I would be able to succeed without being micro managed (as I am essentially my own boss in a way).

    After the phone interview, we scheduled a time for a ride-a-long where I went with an agent for a day of meeting with clients and saw some presentations. I was able to see exactly what the job entailed and see how simple the process was. Helped me realize that I could definitely succeed in this field.

    Interview Questions

    • Thinking of a scenario to prove that I was a self-starter.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Full commission job. No negotiations
