    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Auto-Owners Insurance in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was completed in an hour and a half. Had three separate interviews. The first interview was with the commercial lines underwriting supervisor and consisted of basic interview questions. They seemed to want to get to know your personality because alot of the questions were based off of how you managed dealing with people in your last job and in college. The second interview was with the personal lines underwriting supervisors and consisted of the exact same questions as the first interview. The last interview was with the underwriting manager for the building and was just a casual get to know you session. It took two weeks for them to call me back due to them not being able to get ahold of my references at first.

    Actuarial Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Auto-Owners Insurance in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process took about 3-hours from when I arrived to when I exited to building. I was taken to the actuarial department by someone from HR. They explained that I would have six 30-minute interviews with different managers in the actuarial department. The interviews were very much on a get-to-know-you basis. Most wanted to find an area of common interest and have you talk about that. Be sure to explain how you are good for the job through your conversation, though, and try not to get too off topic.

    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation on wages. The wages are fair and are not the most important thing in an internship anyway. They were very flexible in starting date and said to just give a two-weeks notice when I plan to finish for the summer.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Auto-Owners Insurance.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application online. Sucks because they don't post job openings so you have no clue what they have available so you're taking a risk at wasting your time. Received a call in two weeks and invited for an interview. Interviewed with the RVP and 2 managers for an hour. Received a call for the job in two weeks. The salary offered was lower than I what asked for and much lower than the national average for similar experience and job title. Asked if they were willing to negotiate and they said no. Really needed the job so I accepted.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Auto-Owners Insurance in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was laid back. They showed me around the office building and then got to the interview. The interview itself was a "get to know you" type interview and consisted of all of the standard "are you a leader or a follower?" and "tell me about this part of your resume.." type questions.

    Overall a pleasant interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Auto-Owners Insurance.

    Interview Details

    The initial hiring process started through online applications through the company website. Later on, a very helpful recruiter from the HR department called me to set up a day and time for an interview at the company site. The entire interview process consisted of four separate interviews with various associates (including managers, directors, and the VP of the IT department). The interviews were great. The questions were not difficult or one-sided. I was able to learn more about the organization and they were able to learn more about me as an applicant. The best thing about Auto-Owners is the people who work there. They are very interesting and fun to work with.

    Interview Questions
    • There were not many difficult questions. I spent a good deal of time giving examples of projects that I had worked on in the past, and explaining any difficulties encountered during those projects.   Answer Question

Be prepared for a junior and senior manager to sit in on your interview. This is an optimistic and positive company, indiviuals with a negative mindset will not fit in well.
