    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sterling Life Insurance (Bellingham, WA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I first got interviewed by the basic HR recruiter. It was a simple interview. I then went in for a group interview, consisting of 2 people (the woman I would be working with as well as the HR manager). It was a laid back interview with basic behavioral based questions. They were very nice and helpful. I felt comfortable with them and didn't feel judged. They wanted to know if I knew what the business did, as well as what I would be doing. They were caught off guard with the questiosn I asked back to them.
