    Account Manager - Education Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at American Fidelity Assurance Company (Springfield, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    There were plenty of "processes" and interviews involved, along with an interview with the Education head. I was even told at one point I had the job, there were just "a few more people to sign off". After 2 months of driving back and forth (100+ miles one-way), taking vacation days from work and weeks of not hearing anything, I was told they were going with someone else.

    I'm quite relieved - if that's how they treat a prospective employee (who was going to take a huge pay cut to join their ranks, no less), I have a feeling that some of the reviewers who worked there may have been spot on. Good luck to them, I hope they find success in this ever-changing marketplace.

    Interview

    I applied online in August or September; got a phone call around Thanksgiving. This is a standard amount of time… be patient! Met with HR first. They told me as much as they could about the details and expectations for the position and the department. They asked what my career goals were and if I thought American Fidelity was a good fit for me. Received a second phone call within 3-4 days to interview with the position supervisor and a couple of co-workers. Received a third and final phone call to interview with the department manager. Received regular phone calls and emails from the HR rep to keep me updated on the status. She went above expectations as far as answering my questions and explaining certain processes and procedures. Ultimately I was hired right before Christmas.

    Interview Questions

    • I would be switching industries entirely if I were offered this position, so the toughest questions for me were questions directly involving duties and thought processes that would benefit the potential candidate.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    American Fidelity reviews salaries on a regular basis (every couple of years… they call it benchmarking). They ask for your expected/desired salary, but ultimately they have a set range to offer. Depending on your level of education or experience, they may offer a higher salary than they would have normally.

    Interview

    The Interviewing process was very lengthily and many of them, I had 5 different interviews all with different people.
    The yearly Bonuses you receive, that is base on how the company performs. The work environment is getting very different, with from having an office to working on a table with 6 people at the same time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at American Fidelity Assurance Company (Cleveland, OH) in July 2012.

    Interview

    The hiring process was a bit lengthy because they do some extensive research on their potential employees. We only work in schools, so they want to make sure they're bringing in high character people to represent the company. It started with a couple phone conversations with the state manager, followed by a face to face meeting. After that, there was some paperwork to fill out and a final interview with a regional manager, who offered the job. The whole process took about a month and a half.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at American Fidelity Assurance Company (Oklahoma City, OK) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the VP of the IS department. I walked in to the office, being told I was going to interview with the VP of the IS department, I was a little nervous. As I walked in, I found that he was in jeans and a polo shirt. My first thought....I'm in the right place. I was told that my resume showed that I was a "perfect fit". Received a tour of the facility, showing where "you will work" and people "you will work with". Was given a dollar amount of starting salary on the first interview. The VP handed me his personal cell phone number and office contact info. Only to be ignored for the next 3 weeks until I finally received a thanks but no thanks email.....

    Surely you could imagine my frustration?

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at American Fidelity Assurance Company (Carlsbad, CA) in July 2010.

    Interview

    Sales skills will be evaluated but any signs of aggressiveness will be frowned upon. You are interviewing for a consultative sales position, not a used car sales position. You need to sell while delivering the perception that it was the customer’s decision to buy 100%. Also, don’t be scared off by the initial salary. Your base plus initial (practically guaranteed) bonuses will be around $40k but you will be earning commission from the start and can reach $75k base plus minimum $75k bonuses (at quota which is not hard to hit) by just hitting your numbers. $150-$200k+ career salary is not an unreasonable expectation.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at American Fidelity Assurance Company (Oklahoma City, OK) in August 2009.

    Interview

    I was finishing my undergraduate degree and they called me to fill an internship position. It wasn't a typical hiring process, but I did get a great impression of the way the company "does it". I interviewed with the HR department then with the Hiring Manager then with the entire team. They were all nice to me, and answered all of my questions. I was notified within two weeks by a card and box of cookies mailed to my house. That was pretty awesome!

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There weren't any negotiations. They laid a sheet out in front of me and said "this is what you get." I said "okay". This is part of the company's culture as I've heard of other employees subjected to the "no haggle" approach to compensation.
