Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at New York Life.

Interview

My first round of interviews was a phone interview. The call was very casual and was based on getting to know me. They asked basic questions about where I attend school and how I am involved on campus and in my past jobs. I had time at the end of the call to ask my own questions about the company.

    Interview

    Very lengthy. I had many interviews. It is not like a typical interview, they show you a lot of power points and remind you on how New York Life is the premier leader in insurance. It's a solid company to work for though.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at New York Life in March 2016.

    Interview

    First interview covers general information about interviewee, second and third cover specific job functions, and compensation. By the end of the first interview, I knew I would be offered the position. From there on, the process was more about educating me on the company, and my specific role. One test to see if you are a "true salesman" and a background check.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at New York Life (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Very annoying. They first called me an hour after I applied online, but they wouldn't tell me over the phone how much I would be making, being that it was commission based. After "failing" their personality test, I convinced the guy that the test was wrong and that I was an ideal candidate. I was invited to a second interview which was a group setting, but I declined to go back since they wanted me to finish school part-time on a non-guaranteed salary.
