    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Baystate Financial Services (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Easy. Idiots work here. This is the only place where I have interviewed and felt smarter than the people conducting the interviews. Shouldn't they know a little more about "finance" than me? I guess that's what you get when you're a life insurance company and not a financial firm.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to become a "financial consultant"? But what they meant to ask was "Do you like pushing life insurance as a solution to every problem to everybody?" and "Are you excited to call yourself a financial consultant even though you're actually a life insurance salesman?"   1 Answer
