Financial Services Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at New York Life (San Francisco, CA) in April 2017.

Interview

They​ take you through a series of interviews, 4 in total. I only did the first one which was just to get to know you and for them to familiarize you with New York Life and the position you are applying for. They were friendly and welcoming. However, they should be more upfront about the fact that you are purely compensated by commission (i.e. no base salary). Because of that I chose not to continue.

    I applied online. I interviewed at New York Life (Macon, GA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Overall, the interview process was very transparent and informative. There were three rounds. The first interview was about 30 minutes, and consisted of me giving the employer a brief background on me, and in return him telling me about New York Life as a whole as well as a brief description of the position. The second round was more in depth, as he went over a lengthy powerpoint breaking down all of the aspects of the job and what would be expected of me. The third and final round interview was going over any further questions I had as well as breaking down the day by day of the potential job. I was given the task of coming up with a certain number of prospects and to come back with the names before I could start. Everyone I interviewed with was exceptionally amicable and driven, which is what made the process so seamless in my opinion.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at New York Life (Orlando, FL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    There are 4 stages for the whole interview process. The first interview is easy and I just sit there and listen to the partner to introduce the overall of the company and the basic roles of the position. I did not apply it but they found me on career builder and set up the interview with me very quickly. On the phone, they gave me the job title, when I asked them to send me a full job description, they did not. Overall, the first interview is a 10-15 min presentation from the partner. After that, if you still get interested in the position, they put you in a second interview which is about an hour presentation explaining how the compensation works.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at New York Life (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was reached out to through Linkdin and set up an interview a few days afterwards. The interview was straight forward; basic questions like, "are you a self-starter/go-getter", etc. Overall very little was said in terms of the actual position and how things would work if I was offered a position and accepted.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at New York Life (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was unprofessional. I responded to the phone and he said he was in a meeting and did not respond back. I waited for the reply for the whole day. Then someone else called and gave me some accurate and less accurate information. During the interview, the manager was over 20 minutes late.

    Interview Questions

    • There was no interview questions. He said he will only tell me about the bad stuff and if I wanted to come back, he would then tell me about the good stuff. I did not know if he wanted me or not. It did not make sense and he rushed and forgot to give me a packet.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at New York Life in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was interviewed at my university. This review was more about convincing me that I should work for them than it was about me talking about why I am qualified. I was told the interview will be about 20 minutes and I spent almost an hour with the interviewer. Additionally, once he called the week after the interview, I shared with him that unfortunately, the job would not work for me. A job description was not given and once I looked over the packet I was given at the interview, it looked like the job was a sales job while I was looking for something completely different. He was pretty rude to me after that.
