    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at New York Life (San Jose, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I only went to one interview because I wasn't interested in the job, but it was a pleasant experience. I was initially emailed very quickly after I applied online( literally within hours). I drove over to their San Jose office and had the interview in person. They had me take a little personality survey which was quick and easy. The interview was pleasant with the standard questions. I was given information about the position and then left. I was told I would be emailed to be told if I would go on to the next stage of interviewing.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at New York Life (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Basic phone screening asking questions based off of your resume. Also asked about whether you have anything on your record that would be deemed as unprofessional, I.e. Criminal record or financial record with bankruptcy or huge outstanding loans and debt. Very simple and personality based to see how you communicate with others because this position requires good communication skills.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at New York Life (Waltham, MA).

    Interview

    Looong and basically keep you coming back several times and just start you in training with little explanation of the process. Felt like being sold a used car when they tried to make it official, cheesy lines from 1980 Me. Rogers' interview manual

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at New York Life (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty quick. I applied online. First interview they asked basic questions about your background, experiences, etc. and explained the role a little more. In the second interview, they went into more detail about the company, the job, growth opportunities, etc.

    Chose not to continue with the process. But in the second interview, you definitely get a better feel of whether or not this will be the right career for you.

    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!
