Account Manager Interview

Account Manager
Houston, TX (US)

I applied through other source and the process took 12 months - interviewed at Brown & Brown Insurance.

Interview Details My first meeting with the company was a casual meet and greet because I knew someone who knew someone who worked there. At that time the company did not have a position available for me. They advised that they would hold onto my resume and call as soon as something opened up they would call. About a year later I received a call from the PCL and we met up for lunch. After my initial meeting I was asked into the office to meet with the department manager. Then my final meeting consisted of a knowledge test and then a visit with the person with whom I would be replacing. Within 24 hours I was contacted by the PCL with an offer.

Interview Question – I don't feel as though there were any difficult questions. I believe I was the one who asked more questions about the company.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no real room to negotiate. I believe I was offered the most for the position.

They are constantly making new acquisitions and piling the work onto the current accountants. very easy process it was basically two stages and each stage was with the senior management. They basically want to see if your personality fits the company. They do not even ask a great deal of accounting questions because they base your skills of your resume.

Interview Question – The typical mumbo jumbo... example: what are your strength and weaknesses.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Pay was subpar
