    Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Guardian Life (San Francisco, CA) in January 2011.


    I was interviewed by five people including one person from human resources, one person from compliance and three people from management. The questions were fair and related to both my personal and professional background. I enjoyed being interviewed by the human resource person, the compliance person and two of the managers. However I was uncomfortable being interviewed by the lead manager. He appeared impatient and interrupted me while I spoke.

    Interview Questions

    • Why did you leave your previous job.   1 Answer


    Management would not negotiate even though the human resources person intially told me that management would be open to negotiating my contract. For those considering an offer understand that Guardian will not negotiate and that management is inflexible to agent requests.
