    Corporate Summer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at New York Life (Boston, MA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Because I go to school in Boston but was applying for a summer internship in NY, both of my interviews were over the phone. The first one was very behavioral and was with a recruiter and the second was with the manager that I would be under if I got the job. That one was more specific about the role I would be in and my skill set. I'm waiting to hear back to see whether or not there's another interview or if I got the internship.

    Financial Services Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at New York Life (Charlotte, NC) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Very precise, each meeting had a set objective of what was going to be covered. They made it very clear what they would expect from you. But the way it was worded was definitely in a sales manner to make it seem better than it probably is (I'm not a natural salesperson so I found out this job is definitely not for me)

    MBA Leadership Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at New York Life (Austin, TX) in March 2018.

    Interview

    They describe it as MBA Leadership program but in the end is just the same old thing they do to attract agents -which is kind of misleading.

    I was given a speech that it was clear the person gave many times per day (0 charisma there). You would have to interrupt them (almost rudly) if you want to speak. And then handed some tests. I passed the 1st and was asked to complete a form online for Background check and then request to return to a 2nd interview.

    I was given some other personality tests (shorter) in the 2nd interview (all clearly focused on capabilities to become an agent/salesman). It takes less than 10 min to do. If it not satisfactory in terms of what thet expect the 2nd interview will be over very fast. I did "not pass". I just do not know why they did not give me that in the 1st interview to be honest.

    Interview Questions

    • Not many questions. I went twice and it all seemed very mechanic.   1 Answer

    Interview

    It was a group information session and they accepted everyone who attended. Show up in a suit, come early and be prepared to listen a lot. The job was interesting, not very organized but it was an experience. If you are a people person and can talk on the phone then this internship is for you. There is certainly an opportunity to make money.
