Interview

The bad news bears of a marketing team. After 6 interviews in the process of a month. A male director clearly was just looking to hire females he could order around. Do not work at this pathetic organization. Threatened by talented individuals. Clearly overworked staffed.

Interview

Horrible follow up. The numbers they call from are flagged as malicious. When you do follow up with them they never answer your calls. I had to follow up via email and the only way they respond is is there a better time you can interview tomorrow? I always respond back immediately and you never get a response back. Absolutely terrible recruiting staff. And to think that these are the “professionals” staff business. Absolutely horrible.

The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at SelectQuote

Interview

The first was a screening call. The lady was nice, answered all questions I had except for a couple which then were answered on my 2nd interview with the manager. Both were nice . I missed the first appt due to the manager having technical difficulties with the internet so we rescheduled . The interview was informative. Must pay upfront for the classes to get the license . Then they pay you back . Will provide you two monitors for your stay at home set up .

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at SelectQuote (Bismarck, ND) in Apr 2022

Interview

The interview went great. Interviewed with two managers, built great rapport and had great data related conversations. The interview was a Q&A session and I did well. The problem wasn't the actual interview, it was what I experienced after and during recruiting. They filled the role with a Jr Developer obviously to save money. Perhaps the developer was younger so I feel age discrimination came into play as well. Ghosted by the recruiter and after seeing the reviews in regards to pay, I'm quite convinced some form of discrimination took place.

Interview Questions
  • What is the difference between a "Clustered Index" and a "Primary Key"

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SelectQuote (Robbinsville, NJ) in Apr 2022

Interview

The interview was friendly, asked good personal questions about employment history, job preferences, and provided all I needed to know about the roles that were open to hire. There are many good carriers to get appointed with, good benefits, and it is work from home for those of us in TX.

Interview Questions
  • Unusual question was something like "Would you like to do life insurance 6 months and Medicare sales 6 months as a hybrid agent?" There is a hybrid job role they are hiring for, as well as a year-round Medicare role. "How do you overcome objections to enrolling?"

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SelectQuote (Chicago, IL) in Mar 2022

Interview

I applied on Indeed and got a call and email asking me to schedule a 5-10 minute phone screening which I did. The call was rattled off questions (no actual conversation). All of the answers could be found on my resume. This was a sales position. I left my last sales position in 2019, which was clearly reflected on my resume. The interviewer, Shannon, asked me about my last 6 months of sales experience in the last 3 years. Well, it is 2022 and I did not have a full 6 months in the last 3 years. I do however have 15 years of high pressure sales experience including commission only. This detail disqualified me from the position. The interviewer then informed me they would be posting rolls they were less particular about and I should keep an eye for those. Honestly, no longer interested in the company. In this market the lack of attention to the resume and the curt nature of the screener and being disqualified with so much experience just didn't reflect well for me.

Interview Questions
  • Do you have any sales experience of at least 6 months in the last 3 years? Do you live in one of the states they allow remote work in and plan to stay there? Tell me what you are looking for in your next role.
