    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Baltimore Life.

    Interview

    I had completed an online assessment first. It seemed to be telling me that I would be paying for things out-of-pocket quite often, but I decided to pursue anyhow. It was difficult to make an appointment for a phone interview, because apparently no one knows anyone's schedule or IF they'll even be in the office. The interviewer sounded generally unprofessional, and took a few other phone calls while I was on the line, about a total of five minutes' time. She had to pull up my resume when I mentioned it because it was not in front of her. I spoke about ten words before she told me how spectacular I am and how I just HAD to accept employment. Very suspicious. She continually spoke about how great the company is, but did not ask me questions about myself or review the type of employee I am. She would not answer what a base salary would be, nor would she answer if there even WAS a base salary. She skated around a lot of important questions. After becoming increasingly frustrated with the interview, I said I would not be accepting. She started talking very quickly and apologetically, like a used-car salesman trying to desperately hold onto the sale. It was really difficult to get off the phone after I refused to come in to sign paperwork. I don't understand why they would want an employee who doesn't want the job.
    Reading the reviews on this site from employees of Baltimore Life made me absolutely sure that I made the right decision.

    Reasons for Declining

    Unprofessional interviewer, company seems interested in getting their hands on anyone they can whether or not they fit the job.
