    BOLI Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Greensboro, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Newport Group (Greensboro, NC) in July 2017.

    Interview

    About a week after I had applied, I received an email from the HR at a remote office to setup a phone interview. Scheduled and had the phone interview the next day. Very easy and casual interview. At the end of the phone interview I scheduled an in person interview at the office for the week after.

    The office interview was with three people, two senior account managers and the manager that I would report to. Everyone was friendly and was informative to the history and what you would do at your position. Just make sure you're able to give your history and how it would fit into the position that you applied for and you should have a successful interview. Interview style was a very back and forth conversation.

    A week after I got the call from HR to receive an offer. They said they would reach out either way if you got the job or not. Good luck!

    The process began with a phone interview with HR.

    Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Folsom, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Newport Group (Folsom, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was initially for the call center rep position. I received a phone call from the corporate recruiter and she asked me a few general questions about my interests. We scheduled an in person interview at the Folsom location a few days later. I interviewed with the call center manager, as well as the operations manager. It was relatively easy, and more conversational than I expected. They asked me a few questions about my work experience, and then they allowed me to ask them questions about the company. We had a great dialogue around company culture and diversity. I was offered a position as an operations specialist about a week later, but ultimately declined due to the pay rate. The experience was fun though; and I would gladly take an offer if a position with more pay was to open up.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Newport Group.

    Interview

    Very uneventful. Standard. Surprised to find out that financial services experience was not a requirement for the more complex roles. Having a FRIEND or FAMILY MEMBER is the only requirement to get an offer. J was contacted by HR for a role in Folsom, CA as a customer service rep; however, since I had a team lead role in a famous organization, I was offered a more responsible role. I was apprehensive about the opportunity but since I was assured by the interviewer that I would be fine with their assistance.
