    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at MassMutual in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Originally i was contacted by a recruiter which scheduled me to do an interview.
    - The first interview was pretty basic, explaining how the position worked, following up with some basic interview questions. I was told to complete a personality test online before continuing on to the next interview.
    - The Second interview consisted of more questions. These questions were mainly geared towards the understanding of the position and the type of person you are. Seeking that you are a rational, logical, motivated, and someone who can take rejection.

    Overall I found everyone to be very nice and professional. The atmosphere of the office made me feel very high up and prestige.
