    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Modern Woodmen (Atlanta, GA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Modern Woodmen of America has a very intense interview process. There are a number of things that you have to complete if you decide you want to contract with them. It may seem like a great deal to overcome at first. However, if you want a career in this business and want to be with a company that is not only selective, but supports you, then it is worth it. Since I am only knowledgeable about the manager I worked with, I'm sure other's experience may differ greatly.
