Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The Benefit Companies (Brookfield, WI) in June 2010.

Interview

The interview process was extremely long for an entry-level position. Even when hiring for clients, we would use a $150 'assessment' for people going into a $8/hr cleaning job! This would include sections with reading, writing, math, and other areas. Very similar to an ACT/ SAT-type test. When I interviewed, I was contacted by phone first, and essentially, that's when the phone screen took place. I was brought in for a face-to-face (it was 1:1, not a panel, but I did meed with the CEO), and the process went quite quickly - I don't think it was over 2 weeks from initial contact to offer.

Interview Questions

  • The assessment overall, as well as what I felt were fairly irrelevant questions. This company is primarily made up of Insurance Professionals, and the interview process is likely different for them. When I was there, the entry-level recruiters were helping to identify insurance professionals, and this was probably not the smartest thing as - at least for me - I didn't know what to look for in the resume of the various Insurance professional, and I imagine others probably didn't either. I think this is probably not happening anymore.   1 Answer

Negotiation

The negotiation was straight-forward, however, for an Insurance Professional, my guess is that is may be different as it is likely very commission-focused. Since this was an 'entry-level' position for me, I didn't feel the need to negotiate a lot, but for strong professionals, I think negotiation would be a part of the interview, and would probably not be a huge deal - but again, probably very commission-driven
