    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.

    Interview

    Pleasant, direct. They need an administrative assistant and while I am an executive assistant, she was very professional and it is a good opportunity for an administrative assistant. While the pay range was below my scale, it is an excellent chance for an up and comer to get into the industry and build.

    Interview

    Telephone interview which lasted for about 20 minutes. I think the interviewer was inexperienced and also didn’t make the interview run in an organized manner. He misconstrued my responses even after I had clarified over and over again.

    Interview

    Group interview with about 4 others. Kind of nerve wrecking if you ask me. I got called back for the second interview which they say is a 2 hour process and where they will talk about compensation.

    Agent Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at New York Life (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Three primary steps. FIrst is meeting the managing partner, then you are invited to a weekly/ bi weekly presentation about the company, compensation and how to earn money.

    To be honest, when I came for the second meeting which was the presentation, the managing partner did not even remember who I was and believed thought I was there for the first interview with him. That was kind of disappointing because I thought we had a solid connection and talked consistently through email.
