    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Penn Mutual (Redwood Shores, CA) in October 2018.

    Interview

    I met with the sales manager and we talked for 1.5 hours. At first it was a standard interview; what have you done, how much did you sell etc. Then we started to talk. Great guy and interested as much in my goals and needs as he was in what they were looking for.

    Interview

    Great interview process. Easy to understand the interview process from the start as well as the requirements. Before hiring they will make you complete a list of 100 leads for you to use once licensed as an agent. Be careful of the leads that you give to any company, especially in sales.

    Telephonic interview followed by in person
    Mostly on how java xml broker works (internals not APIs), then Java certification type questions (based on inheritance problems, static variables, inner classes ) given code, what will be output. SQL vs noSQL dbs. Interviewer won't answer question if you didn't know it. I felt its bit rude, even I interviewed candidates and if candidate request, I will answer the question.
