Financial Services Professional Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at New York Life (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

Interview

Fairly straightforward. A lot of work early on in the application process, in my experience this is consistent with positions with a high earning potential. I would suggest to do research and prepare for a long ramp up time. I did some research and NYL compensation estimates were verified by someone I trust in that field

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at New York Life (Bridgewater, MA).

    Interview

    Interview went well. There were 4 separate interviews which I guess would make sense for a large Fortune 100 Company. They were surprisingly honest and told me the pros and cons to working here. They're only looking for top people so they try to weed out the people who wouldn't make it. I think a lot of the complaints I've seen here are from people that really wouldn't do well here anyway so they were probably trying to get rid of them. Great company, great culture. Really happy I came to work here!

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at New York Life (Dayton, OH) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Hiring took forever as they kept saying that the approval process takes a while. I have worked in the financial field with other companies and they did not have a problem with getting me in and going right away. Partners are disingenuous with you to try to make It seem like you are fine

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at New York Life (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I spent 1000 dollars to New York for this interview. It was horrible, the interview was scheduled on 1:30pm, however, I wait more than 15 min for the HR to see me. At the beginning of interview, she asked me to tell about myself. After that, when I mention I'm international student. she said this position didn't provide the sponsorship. You can tell me this before I spent the money for hotel and flight. totally waste money and time for this interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at New York Life (New York, NY) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I met with a partner in the office and we sat down one on one. Some aspects of my resume were talked about, but I think they are more trying to figure out if you could be a good salesman through asking certain questions about my perspectives on different businesses. They are more trying to figure out the way you think. The personality test is important though, as you may not be able to go on to continuing stages of interviewing if you don't pass.
