    • What are your motivations? Please list 3 in the order of importance... Please explain each.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There isn't much room for negotiation, because it is a sales position. It is a matter of how much do you believe you can sale without a safety net. I would definitely reconsider if this is your first job. Actually, I would doubt they would offer you the job if it is your first.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at New York Life (Paducah, KY) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Hiring process is crazy. Based out of New York so there are tons of hoops to jump through. Just when you think they couldnt ask for anymore paperwork, they do. They are looking for new agents to mold into a great sales person. If you are established, you can get a different kind of contract.
