    Insurance Sales Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at SelectQuote (Jacksonville, FL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Quite possible one of the wierdest interviews I have been to, and possibly the most bizzare 2 hour experience of my Life. After posting my resume online I was contacted by a recruiter at SelectQuote who told me my extensive insurance background was exactly what they were looking for and that a hiring manager would be in contact. Shortly afterwards I got a call from one of the managers we talked for all of 2 minutes mostly about his recent vacation he concluded our conversation by telling me I had "passed" the phone test, whatever that meant, and that he'd schedule me in for a face to face interview...one week later and Im walking into the interview, aside from that bizzare 2 minute chat, all seemed well. I walk into the interview and there are 4 of the hiring managers, strangely they were all scattered around the room. One of the managers sat almost behind me, the other to my right, the other to my left and one directly in front of me. Almost as if I was being cross examined in a law and order court room and the way the interview proceeded certainly was very much the case. One would ask a question, while the other would object to the way I had answered the question just to see if I was "coachable". Then all of a sudden a 5th manager just strolls in 45 minutes into the interview, barely introduces himself and proceeds to ask me the same questions the other 4 had asked me, then one of them says "great! Lets see if his answers are different this time"...odd. You'd think I was being interviewed for a position with the KGB not life insurance sales in a call center. The interview ended with them saying I got the job pending final approval from the CEO. I never got a call back. I did get a brief tour of the office, not exactly racially/gender diverse, probably 95% caucasian male and I got the feeling they wanted to keep it that way.

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SelectQuote (Leawood, KS).

    Interview

    One interview and basically was offered the job. The jacket fit so to speak. The process was misleading. What they don't tell yiu is 1. The job is hourly and 2. Is only august to Dec during medicare op en enrollment. Correction when they send you the 8 page contract to sign it's made perfectly clear.

    Reasons for Declining

    Please see above. Very misleading process, steer clear

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at SelectQuote (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    The first round is on the telephone. Then, they bring you int to meet with three of the sales managers at one time, which can be a bit overwhelming if you're not poised enough. If you make it past that round, you then meet with the National Sales Manager, the owner, and then you meet the owner's wife.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Overland Park, KS
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at SelectQuote (Overland Park, KS) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I had a 30-minute phone interview. Followed a few days later by my first in-person interview. About a week later I heard back to schedule a second in-person interview.

    All the interviews seemed to go very well and I had the necessary experience and then some. Was told that I'd have an answer about the position in a week's time. Seemed long but I'm several others had to interview.

    That week passed so I reached out for an update. Was told I would hear something by the end of the business week.

    Reached out right at the end of the week and got no response.

    I'm fine not being hired, and understand it's a process, but it would be nice if recruiters kept their word and/or were capable of delivering bad news.
