    I first saw them at the career fair and gave them my resume. They had very quick turnaround time and had me fill out an online assessment. The assessment wasn't technical, it just asked me about things like my work habits. Then I had an initial phone screening that went over my resume.

    Applied on the company's website & had an interview two weeks later. Just the first HR round. Lady was talking about the position & the company. I got a rejection email a day later.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jackson National Life.

    Interview

    Personality Test with MS Excel test then phone interview. With that, you had basic interview questions, but the main problem was, to start off the phone call, the interviewer was just rude. She showed no emotion and acted like she was better than everyone. Recruiters need to remember: YOU ARE THE FACE OF THE COMPANY TO START OUT!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jackson National Life (Lansing, MI) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Entire process took one month from time of submitting application. HR contacted me to complete a 30-minute math & vocabulary test and personality survey, and then HR conducted a phone screening about 10 days after I applied. Then I had a phone interview with the hiring manager the following week, then a final presentation and interview about 10 days later, which allowed me one week to prepare my presentation of a business case for a project. After I presented, the asked about eight behavioral questions and their notes templates indicated they expected to hear the STAR method.

    Internal Communications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Franklin, TN

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jackson National Life (Franklin, TN) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed with recruiter then was asked to take a writing assessment, which consisted of creating three pieces of content. This took a lot of time and ultimately was a waste of my time.
    Advise to Jackson Recruiters - don't give someone an assignment that will take them hours to complete when all they did was pass the phone screen. Wait until they've gone through the interview process, then ask the top five candidates to devote their time.

    Actuarial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in East Lansing, MI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jackson National Life (East Lansing, MI).

    Interview

    If you are a foreign student, don't even bother to apply for jobs at Jackson. They only want to hire people who can "stay longer". Apparently they assume that everyone is going to stay for decades without leaving. But the truth is, people would leave if there were opportunities. There is definitely a discrimination against foreigners at Jackson. Please be aware of that. Jackson likes to hire internally, which means that foreigners will not even have chances to get internship there since you can't stay afterwards anyway.

    Also Jackson has a very sloppy HR department. My name was spelled WRONG in the email I received from HR. Absolutely no feedback when I tried to follow up. And the irony is that applicants should never make spelling mistakes in their writings. Also HR calls in at a DIFFERENT time that was agreed on, PLUS 8 minutes LATE. What a horrible experience.

    Application stops immediately once they know you do not have a green card. Even if you have all the skills and qualifications, they do NOT value them at all. I do not know how a company becomes one of the Fortune 500 when their standard is not hiring talents.
