For me I had to come back several times but that was mostly because certain people weren't there that week apparently. I did a computer test, it was typing but also an assessment. Then I had an in person interview with one person, did a role play with that same person, then later sat with an agent or what they call job shadowing, then had a second in person interview. I could tell my confidence was what swayed him. I got the job offer. Then you do a hair drug test, they took several chunks of hair, spread out to avoid one large bald spot but it was more than I expected. And they do a full background test, if you have any felonies it is highly unlikely you will be hired because there are requirements for the License you may be required to obtain depending on the position you're applying for. I passed both tests and then they give you about a week or two of learning licensing before you take the test which they pay for. As long as you pass you move on to training which is extensive.

I went through their entire interview process and made it all the way to the role play. After the role play was finished, the woman interviewing me asked me not to move seats and I could not see her face behind her computer screen the entire time she was finishing the interview. I felt that the interview went well, but then without saying anything to me, she walked me out of the interview room and lead me out of the office. The other woman at the front desk was surprised when she told me to go home and that they would be in contact with me later that day. I didn't hear from anyone for almost two days and when I called to speak to HR they told me they would have someone call me back. That of course did not happen. Instead I received an email saying that I did not get the position. I tried again to follow up on the interview and was unable to reach anyone. I applied again after 6 months had passed. Once again they were going to invite me to finish the process until the woman on the line was told by someone else not to invite me back. Again, I was rejected with no explanation. The only thing that I could deduce from their odd behavior is that I was in school and they didn't want to work with me if I need to change my schedule at some point. I understand if I wasn't right for the job but no explanation was given, and they made no effort to help me understand why I didn't get the position when I was more than qualified.

Probably the worst company to interview for. They completely waste your time and give you an emmense amount of false hope. They are also extremely judgemental with who they hire. You go through five phases during the interview process and it is very very long. I highly suggest not applying here.

Got in at 7:30 am. Took a computer test. Passed. Did an interview. Passed. Did a role play on the phone. Passed. Went upstairs to sit with an employee to see what the job is like. Met with a supervisor for another interview. Offered job. Went back down stairs to complete paperwork. Left around 1:30pm. They tell you before you come to plan to be there all day if all goes well. You only move forward as you pass each level. Drug test is done. They will cut a little square of hair from your head. A credit and background check is preformed. These take as long as 3 weeks. If you pass those two you are officially hired. They take their process very seriously. The pay is good. Overtime is there if you want it. Benefits are good as well. Oh will have to obtain a license to sell insirance in your state. Tjey will cover this and it will be done before you start actually working. You are paid while you attend school. You will get out of this job what you put into it just like most jobs. You will deal with irate customers. Don't be thin skinned and still give good customer service. Don't be nervous during the interview. Just relax and good luck.

The interview process was very relative to the position that you apply for and there are different parts to the interview...a phone interview, an assessment test, in person interview and background check. The environment is quiet and calm and everyone was very pleasant and assisted with any questions that you may have.

The process took over three days, and the last part was akin to a hazing.
I stayed through the final process, but had the urge to walk out multiple times.
No one needs to be treated like that just to get a job.

Very stretched out, and they toss you aside for no apparent reason. They will not tell you why they will not hire you, after three separate interviews over three weeks. A waste of time.

Typing test and mock interview (as if you are on the job). They want to see how well you multi-task.
