Actuarial Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group

Interview Details The phone interview was conducted by a HR recruiter. It was more like a screening interview. She asked only the most basic questions, like going through your resume.

And then, I was contacted by them for a second round of interviews,

Very Easy Interview

Insurance Agent Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Bellevue, WA (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in March 2014.

Interview Details There really wasn't an interview because I was not asked any questions besides how i felt about the information I was told about the training process and commitment. I was sent an email by a recruiter and asked to come in for an interview, it was never specified what position was available. I wish I had asked that before I agreed to going in. I wasn't interested in an Agent position.

Interview Question – The only questions I was asked was how I felt about the training process and if i was interested in being a business owner.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I wasn't interested in this type of position.

Liability Claims Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group.

Interview Details I was referred by a friend. I had one phone interview with a recruiter and two in-person interviews followed-up with a ride along with a current claims rep. Overall the hiring process was pretty informal. The rep that I rode along with was in the process of leaving the company and there was a strong sense of apathy. It is a very mundane career path; not for those with a sales mind so beware. Most people there are financially and career stagnant so if you are a mover and a shaker you may find the job very unfulfilling after a while. Get used to loving to overcome objections because it is all the job is. I am not a drug-user but I was surprised there was no drug test given you are given a company vehicle.

Interview Question – All generic situational questions to see how you resolve conflict i.e. You are negotiating a claim with a customer and not getting anywhere and they ask to just deal with your manager directly instead of you how would you handle that.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no real negotiation. I made a demand for $5000 over the initial offer but then was able to only get a $1500 increase.

Average Interview

Customer Service Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group.

Interview Details I've received a phone call from a recruiter a day after I filled out an online application to see when I can come in for an interview. She was very nice and easy to talk to but help talking 80% of the time about sales/ commission positions that I wanted nothing to do with. Of course they would do that since they basically lose nothing over it. But she said she forward my resume to agencies near me.

Interview Question – Nothing really difficult. Just went over resume and asked about myself, education, and employment history   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Although my resume was forwarded to a different agency for my wanted position. I declined the other sales positions she mentioned
