    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New York Life.

    Interview

    It was OK. Prior to hour long interview I was told base salary plus commission. Turns out it is 100% commission, no leads provided. I declined offer since it did not match what I was expecting nor what I was told during the preliminary interview.

    Interview

    slow moving process.
    They don’t really tell you next steps but keep asking for very personal information before offering employment.
    They have a complicated pay structure.
    Eventually charge you from future expenses.

    Interview

    Recruiters are nice, and there is no stress during the interview, just like an ordinary chat. Speaking speed is not fast, also give time to think about the problem. Allows you to eliminate tension faster and make the best use of yourself.
