    Process was easy as each agency is run locally. Met with the General Agent in the office and he went through the resume and asked me questions about sales and interacting with people. Had to take an assessment online which tested if I was the right candidate for the position. Passed. Once hired I had a week to take my Life Agent exam for my license.

    Field Agent Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Knights of Columbus (Bridgewater, NJ) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Interview process stressed that a field agent needed to be able to handle rejection and walk into the office every day feeling as if they were unemployed. You will be asked to do a drug test and personality test which will determine if you are a good fit for a commission-only job. Expect to have 4-5 interview meetings before coming on-board. Also, you will need to obtain your insurance producer license before being hired, which in NJ requires you to also take a course either in person or online.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Knights of Columbus (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Had to take a personality profile. General agent answered most questions for me or asked them in a leading way. Felt like they were looking to have a warm body and the general agent just needed to make his hiring quota. Just the usual sales related questions and very boring. refused to discuss contract until actually making offer and then expected signature on the spot.Do not try to high pressure sell a salesman

    Field Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Knights of Columbus in January 2013.

    Interview

    General agent meets with you to see how well you will work for him. Then if he likes you, he will promise you everything under the sun to get you to work for him. I trusted him and he lied about so many things that I found were not true until I had already been into the job for a few months. This ultimately hurt me and my family for years. Keep in mind, the GA is a salesman just trying to get money out of you as that's what they were trained to do.

The interview is in front of pretty much the entire team so be ready for that. You really have to know your accounting if you're going to go for this job. I took 2 years of accounting in college and they were asking about concepts i've never even heard of.
