    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MassMutual (Buffalo, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    It was pretty long, I went through a series of interviews, a personality test, and examination for getting licensed. The process is long so they ensure the candidates they hire are going to stick around - this isn't an easy career AT ALL!

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MassMutual (Hunt Valley, MD) in May 2009.

    Interview

    First interview will be with a sales manager. They will review the sales process and the products that you will be able to sell. This can last about 30min to an hour. You will be questioned as to your self motivational skills and internal need to succeed. You will need to exhibit a competitive nature and provide examples. You will have at least one more interview with the sales manager and the general agent after the initial. At this time, the compesation schedule and bonus structure will be reviewed. Typically the interviews end with a decision on your part. They will ask you if you want the job. This is a sales position and if you are willing to put forth the effort, there is minimal chance that you will not be hired. There is no base salary, so from a management standpoint....they have nothing to lose in giving you a shot. I met many hires from numerous educational and professional backgrounds. So industry experience is not necessarily required.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you willing to make cold calls? No questions were particularly difficult or tricky as far as provoking thought. Just simply are you willing to do what is required. I was unsure if I was willing to cold call. That is why it was a difficult question for me.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no base salary option. So you are offered a few incentive based commission schedules. I chose the one with the highest potential payout.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MassMutual (Nå (Norway)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    4 interviews. All easy and pretty standard. It seems like they don't hire you until you ask to be hired or ask what the next steps are to starting at the company.
