    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at World Financial Group (Prince George, BC) in November 2019.

    Interview

    I wouldn't call it an interview. They talked the entire time and basically were trying to convince me that this was some amazing company with endless opportunities. They never once asked me for a resume. I had read Glassdoor reviews online before hand and saw a lot of negative feedback but still wanted to see for myself. I asked a few questions myself like if they were members of the Insurance Brokers Association of British Columbia (which any legitimate insurance broker in BC is) and she had no idea what I was talking about. Any company that doesn't care about your credentials is a HUGE red flag. I also found it quite sketchy that they required up front money ($130) to even apply for the position (non-refundable) and pressured me to pay for it at the end of the 'interview'. Overall this company does not seem legitimate and in my eyes is a huge pyramid scheme. My interviewer claimed that the company followed "strict government regulations" but didn't know what the Canadian Accredited Insurance Broker program was. Their training seems like a complete sham and paying for it would be a waste of money if you ever wanted to work for another company. Personally I would not work for them since all of my morals go against taking advantage of people but for someone who doesn't have an education and doesn't care about what they're doing to make money, this might be a position for them.
