I work in a Rep Services Call Center for an Insurance/ Investment Company. Currently I'm pursuing my MBA at Western Governors University and I plan to get my Series 7 after my MBA so I can get out of the Call Center and advance my career.

I'd like to hear about good experiences and bad experiences people have had in this industry, where did you start, how did you grow from there, what licenses do you have, ect.

      I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Western Governors University (United States)


      Fairly easy process once you get an interview. It’s best if you get a referral from current staff. The interview process starts with HR call then meet with hiring manager.
