    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at New York Life (Grand Rapids, MI) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process is a 3-4 tier process. They give you more information, as your progress up the interview chain. Each step is a week. So, if you're interested & they are interested in you, you'll be invited back for another interview the following week. This may seem a bit long, but it weeds out the "kind of" interested people.
