ManhattanLife – Why Work For Us?


Since 1850

Our legacy began on May 29, 1850 with the formation of The Manhattan Life Insurance Company. We made a name for ourselves early on, introducing incontestable clauses in life insurance contracts before any other company. We issued the first ever group life insurance contract and issued one of the first life policies to a woman. In 1894, the original Manhattan Life office building in New York City was the tallest building in the world.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ManhattanLife (Houston, TX) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, and received an e-mail to set up an interview. The interview was very easy, and the manager was very nice to talk to. Afterwards, I received another e-mail to come back for a second interview. I met with the president of the company. He was also very nice to talk to. They gave me a call to give me the final decision.
