    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at MassMutual in July 2017.

    Interview

    There were a total of 3 interviews before the offer meeting. The interviews were very laid back, more of a casual conversation with a subtle digging for facts. I think you are really judged as much on the type of questions you ask as you are your answers to their questions. I believe this type of interview leads you to be more candid and less rehearsed with your answers which is better for both parties in the end. Asking questions that show your knowledge of the industry and the company/agency or at least the fact that you did some homework and applied critical thought are a huge plus.

    Interview

    a very causal setting, feels like you are having a casual conversation with a friend rather an employer. I have done two of the three recommended interviews, and my last one is this upcoming week.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MassMutual (Newark, NJ) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter called to set up a interview couple of days after submitting online application. First interview, met with two VPs. Very informative first interview, where they informed you of what the company is about and what kind of person they're looking for etc. Second interview was more in-depth of your background/experience and if you're a people person (basically you'll be answering 8-10 detailed questions asked by interviewer) and they will conduct background check, and send assessments prior to second interview. Third interview very brief, they assign homework for you to seek roughly 200 people you know to build your network of clients and ten short surveys. Once completing these tasks, you'll be determined if you're a right candidate for this position; if so, training and licensing will begin shortly. Please keep in mind, this is a 100% pure commission position (+bonus from company, down the road) and you will need to find your own network of people to sell insurance to (lots of calls, seeking people on the field, etc). If you're not able to speak in front of people or not able to easily communicate with random strangers and getting rejected numerous times, this position would not be for you. However, if you are, the earning potential is there through lots of hard work.

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at MassMutual (Spokane, WA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Fairly lengthy without proper expectations set. The seems fairly personable but at the same time detached and holds himself on a pedestal. He had me meet other advisers to see if I would be a good fit and most of them were very kind and helpful.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MassMutual (Richmond, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was a 1-1 interview in the office. It's mostly for information - they will go over exactly what the company does and the kinds of roles you play in it/ways to advance. They ask some questions about strength and experience, but is more emphasized on information about the company. He heavily emphasized that this is difficult work, and asks you if you would be interested/capable of it. I was asked back for a second interview, but decided to remove my name from consideration. Although there is potential to make a lot of money, you have no base salary and have to start with trying to sell to friends/family. Unless you have funds you can live off of for a few months without a salary, I would hold back on this job. Not ideal for recent college grads.
