The process took 3 days - interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in May 2011.
Interview Details – I received a call from a Farmers Insurance recruiter in Brookfield, Wis. He'd found my resumé, which was posted on a job-search website. I gave him some background information on my education and my brief experience in the working world (recent graduate). He invited me to interview at a Farmers AgencyPoint center in Brookfield five days from the initial call. Since this was my first "real" interview since graduating in December, I conducted a lot of research on the mechanics of interviewing. I brought two copies of my resumé, printed on plain computer paper as the printer was having none of the fancy nice paper. The receptionist was very pleasant, offering to take my coat and get me some coffee or water. I met with another recruiter than my initial contact. He was younger and a bit more casual than I was expecting, so I wasn't as nervous or intimidated. The one-on-one interview lasted about a half hour or 45 minutes before he took me on a small tour of the three locations in the building. There was a cubicle-maze call center, where agents spend four months cold-calling. There was also an office dedicated to conference rooms and private offices where insurance consultations could take place. The top floor is mainly the claims department, I think. I saw very few people in the office, as most employees were in a conference in Atlanta, so I don't have a firm feel about the culture there. After the tour, I was put in front of a computer where I took timed and untimed psychological and aptitude tests (e.g., "agree," "neutral," or "disagree"). That took about an hour, so I was at the AgencyPoint center for just under two hours.

Interview Details – The lady wanted to get to know me like I was a blood relative. She seemed really lonely and in a way like she wanted to give away her business the most worthy candidate. She was very eccentric and seemed not at all concerned that I needed a job right now.

Interview Details –
I received a call from a Recruiter regarding my resume on a popular job site. The Recruiter asked if I would be able to come in for an interview to discuss career opportunities with Farmers Insurance. Basically it was a position to be an Agent for the company. During the interview I was asked a couple of illegal interview questions such as if I was married or single, do I have any kids, etc.? Once I was asked those questions I should have listened to my intuition, and politely ended the interview. However, I did not. At the end of the interview I was informed that I would have to take a IQ/Personality Test.
The Recruiter took me into a room that had several computers and I was told that I would be timed. One question on the test was "What year did World War II start?" The test also included mathematical and analytical type questions. Neededless to say for the position they wanted me for, I was unsure what all the testing was for.
The next day I received an email from the Recruiter stating that they were examining other candidates for the position, and were not going to move forward with the hiring process. I can honestly say I was relieved when I received that email. I was completely turned off by the illegal interview questions, and should payed attention to the red flags within the first seven minutes of the interview.
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in June 2012.
Interview Details – I came in to talk to District manager about Agency Owner opportunities. I couldn't afford to become an agent. It seems like a lot of upfront money.
