    Talked for about 20 minutes with interviewer and then took a 20 minute personality test on computer. It didn't seem like a very good work environment, there were a lot of cubicles where I think I would have worked.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly easy because it is a commission based job. The most interactive part of the interview was when manager asked me to fill out 10 questionnaires by asking people what they think about the financial service industry. I found out that these 10 people I asked to fill out the questionnaires would be my potential clients.

    Normal interview questions about why you think you will succeed as a rep. Have to consent to a background check and credit check before being hired.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bala Cynwyd, PA
    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MassMutual (Bala Cynwyd, PA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Met at a job fair, had an interview with the hiring representative and multiple interviews with an Accounts Executive manager. The interviews spanned multiple weeks, with the first several being behavioral-based. They refused to speak about compensation until I had proven that I had a "network" I could tap into. The job is 100% commission based. They will pay you back for series licenses, but you have to front the cost. You really have to remember that all the people who are interviewing you are sales people themselves, as they try to soften the downsides of working there using standard sales tactics.

    Interview Questions

    • Provide a list of 200 people in your personal network, with their contact information.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    100% commission based, have to sell to "your network" of family and friends

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Springfield, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at MassMutual (Springfield, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The process is very slow at MassMutual. They seem to want you to talk to everyone so it takes a long time to complete the process. In the mean time, what the hiring manager or his boss wants changed. Not sure the PMO has worked out all of what they are really looking for and how to structure the interviews and on boarding. Some behavioral interview questions were included about risk management and dealing with the project team.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe that largest project you have managed, how many people on the team, what was the cost?   Answer Question
