    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National Federation of Independent Business in December 2009.

    Interview

    I had to do a personality test first, and according to how they score you on your test they determine if you are right to do this position, then I was contacted for a personal interview and was hired on the spot. Most of the people are professional however, what I was promised as far as territory and amount of renewals wasn't even close to what was promised in the interview.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    It is straight commission, so there is no negotiating other than there is flexibility in the territory that they will assign to you

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National Federation of Independent Business in February 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was largely behavioral, asking for my impressions or wide ranging topics and what different ideas "mean to me". My resume was completely ignored, as it was expected that I provide my experience through story telling that fit the interviewer's needs. I felet the interview went well, but was not offered the position.
