    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 12+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Brown & Brown Insurance in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    The whole hiring process took several months. I interviewed with every department head. They took their precious time, but I think that since every profit center is independent (for the most part) they wanted to make sure I was a good fit for them.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Brown & Brown Insurance.

    Interview Details

    Interview process is very simple for accounting because the company needs so many of them. 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.

    Insurance Producer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Florham Park, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Brown & Brown Insurance in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    The company hiring process was like none I've ever seen. There was a standardized personality test which is designed to determine how hard of a worker the applicant is and how well they deal with rejection - as sales positions tend to offer alot.

    The interview consisted of a 2:1 meeting with the Vice President and President of the office. They are friendly and personable, and ask simple questions, like: Why did you pick insurance. The company is attempting to bring in a wave of young/new sales people, so there is not a significant amount of experience required.

    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate the salary - which was a mistake. I didn't know what a good salary was for the position and thought I had a good deal. This is a sales based organization, everyone is there because they want to make more money. I would highly suggest asking for $45k-$50k. Fifty is on the high side, but depending on the day, you may get it.
