    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at New York Life in March 2009.

    Interview

    My interviewer was very persistent and did not allow me enough time for responses. She was very rude and at times, stated that I would not get the position. But New York Life usually initiates a phone interview with all applicants. I highly recommend treating the phone interview like an actual interview

    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.
