Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Johnston, RI
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at New York Life (Johnston, RI) in January 2017.

Interview

The job seemed too good to be true. I was told that the company was a great place to begin working and that I should expect to make a salary of about $70,000 a year. They neglected to let me know that their turnover was extremely high. I went through a couple of interviews and decided against taking a position with the company.

    The first interview was straightforward. You take online questionnaires which projects how successful you will be at the job based on your personality. An interviewer will present to you all the benefits of the job at the second interview and give you an assignment to complete for the third interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at New York Life.

    Interview

    Four long interviews. and you need a warm market if you don't want to cold call. First interview was a one on one session and a get-to-know-you type of interview. The second interview was a group interview that introduced the way the company was organized. Third interview was financially focused and there was a personality quiz at the end, and I didn't go to the fourth interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at New York Life (Orlando, FL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was easy and everyone was very friendly. The office in Orlando is nice and clean and very professional looking. They have a great training program that is offered to incoming trainees. I didn't move forward with the company since they didn't know how to handle international employees in regards to visas.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at New York Life in March 2010.

    Interview

    I applied through my college career website and was offered an interview the following week. I met with the head of a local office for an interview that lasted around an hour. After the interview, I took an online personality test with it implied that I would advance no further if I failed. Apparently I passed as he called the following day and wanted another interview on-site in his office. All went well in this interview and he offered me a job on the spot. I wasn't ready to commit yet so he told me I could take a week and come back the next week with a list of "practice leads".

    Reasons for Declining

    After given a practice lead sheet, which asked for 10 friends or family to offer three leads themselves, the whole thing just gave a crappy vibe. I didn't really want a career of pestering and bugging my family and friends simply so I could gain a commission.
