    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at New York Life (New York, NY).

    Interview

    There was a phone screening call first, in which we discussed what they were doing and the relevancy of my experiences to their needs. This was followed by a face to face interview, where I met with the internal recruiter, a team of peers, and finally the hiring manager. The recruiter mentioned that the goal was to try to change the culture, but in five years of work the culture was not ready to accept change from within.
