Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at New York Life (Milwaukee, WI) in July 2015.

Interview

I waited an extra 20 minutes for my interview to begin. My interviewer asked me strange questions about my family history and my family's household income. I didn't appreciate that too much at all and thought it was inappropriate.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at New York Life in July 2015.

    Interview

    I was called in for an interview after attending a job fair. The recruiter was engaging and extremely positive about his experience and success at New York Life. We covered some parts of my resume, but not extensively. I got some vague answers about what my training or experience as an agent would entail. I took a computer assesment test asking about what I thought sales people and insurance procedures. The recruiter told me I scored in the top ten percent and would do well as a salesperson. I came back for a group interview which explained compensation benefits which was a bit confusing because another recruiter got the figures mixed up. No other contact after that meeting.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at New York Life (San Antonio, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very professional, from the very beginning until its conclusion. The interviewer answered all of my post-interview questions and made sure everything was completely clarified. The company seemed like a great place to work for, unfortunately given that I am an international student I was not extended the position. If you are in my same situation do not waste your time as you will not be hired no matter how qualified you are, that would be my only complaint.
