Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Creve Coeur, MO

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at New York Life (Creve Coeur, MO) in November 2017.

Interview

Three rounds of interviews (if you make it that far), first was to see if you have chemistry and for the managing partner to see if you could be a good fit personality wise. If you are offered a second interview you fill out a personality assessment, if you pass then you continue and fill out the online application. There is also a value based sheet to fill out that you will talk about during the second interview. Lots of perks to the job, but they don't provide any clients and the salary base isn't much to live on if you're struggling with finding clients. Reward is great if you can put in the work and effort needed to succeed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New York Life (Norfolk, VA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Informational, information gathering. Friendly atmosphere designed to inform the interviewee more so than to gather information on the person being interviewed. The company seems to have a lot of great efforts and is willing to train and develop new people coming on. This is a good interview to practice interviewing skills on if you are not interested in the sales industry.

    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.

    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.
