Anyone got baited into Insurance job interviews?
3am, was just reflecting on life when I ORD-ed last year. I applied for a couple of Marketing & HR jobs, thought I was hella lucky when I got shortlisted a couple days later. Went down for interview, which only then I realized it’s an insurance agency but it was too late.
Interviewer is some team lead who asked me about life aspirations and nothing about applied role, then last part straight up ask me to join them sell insurance. Wonder if anyone else got baited like me as well?
*If you ask why not Google before going down, these scummy Insurance agencies usually provide a generic company name (eg. J Index / QP Organization) that return no search results.
- Nah its never “too late” OP, unless you said “Yes ” to joining them 😉.
- I remembered in the past, the Insurance company will directly call NSFs for the potential job interview. The session was full of NSFs, that’s when some suspected their contact details were leaked to the Insurance Co for call-calling and recruitment purposes 🙄.
- As a general rule of thumb, never interview for an organisation which doesn’t yield any search results.
- Got baited a few times years ago when I was still a fresh grad but now I find it so easy to identify them. The name of these companies usually gives them away and your last paragraph is another telltale sign.
