    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at New York Life in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interview could take up to 6 face-to-face interviews if you're unlucky, less if you're good at interviewing. I recommend being aggressive with your answers, personality, and follow up. The interview process involves summation of the job description and how you will be compensated. You will be prompted to ask questions about anything that is told to you. Asking questions is strongly advised. Buyer Beware: ask how long it will be until you are compensated; what the stipulations of getting compensated are; who/ what/ and when you can trigger your full time contract.
