    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.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Brown & Brown Insurance in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    Fairly simple interview. They asked me questions about my past job and school experiences and some behavioral questions. The women who interviewed me were very nice. The office is mainly women and the high up women and men seem like they really like their job, although most of them are hardly in the office, and the lower employees seem dissatisfied.

    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.
