    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Transamerica in October 2017.

    Interview

    I received an email from a recruiting manager about 12 hours after I applied online. I went to interview with the manager and it went well. This first interview was the opportunity interview, the first step in a long pre-employment process. The next step was to fill out the career application and then have the career interview, but it's been two weeks since I filled out the career application and I've had no follow up since.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Transamerica (Harrisburg, PA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Responded to an ad on craigslist with my resume. Was called to set up an interview. Arrived at interview to find the whole process kind of 'scammy'. Wasn't asked any questions about myself or any of my work history. The interviewer went over a hiring packet for the duration of the interview, mainly covering how I would be getting paid. I think the company hires new sales people with the expectation of them to fail, after selling some life insurance policies to some friends and families first.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Transamerica (Anaheim, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I never applied for an insurance company! I got a call from them and the gentleman said its a financial company and works with money and do finance! He invited me for an interview! I asked him if he can email me the address and he said is it ok I send you a text message?! I said its ok! I didn't know the name of the company since I got the address and searched that on google map to see what it is! I went there 15 minutes before and saw few more people there waiting for an interview at the same time as me! they took us in a meeting room and showed us a video and then a presentation about the company and percentage of people who are their customers! They said its not a sales position! I never want to work as a sale position but what they are looking for are sales people but they want to call it something else! After that presentation each of people invited one of us who came for n interview in to their office and talked with us about how is the process! at the end of that he told me I have to give them my credit card and DL as I have to pay $ 100 to enter to the system! Thats was so weird! I have a master degree in management and I don't know how they can do this! They called me and never said its a sales position! I went there and asked them and said no sorry we do not have any sales position! we offer different kinds of job in management but sales! but its all lies! all they want is sales people and nothing else! I declined the offer and came out from the office!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Transamerica (Woodland Hills, CA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    I had two interviews at their San Fernando Valley office and in both of them, they were more interested in getting me on board so I can bring others on since they get a percentage of everything I bill as well as that of anyone I bring on. Seems more like a pyramid scheme as opposed to trying to bring on quality people and help them succeed. I was very unimpressed with their professionalism.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Transamerica (Broadview, IL) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The management was gone that day, so the recruiter did a quick interview with me & asked me to fill out some background check info. She apologized I'd have to come back for another interview with somebody higher. I noticed the office itself wasn't anything to brag about...don't know if I would have wanted to meet a potential client there. I never received another word from them until another location for the same company noticed my interview online. They tried to get me to come in for an interview at their locaton, but I declined. I'm communicating with enough potential employers that I'm not this desperate to enlist with a company who leaves me with a feeling of malaise through their non-professional tactics. (The second location may have been totally different, but I'm already jaded).
