    Social Marketing Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Glenview, IL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Combined Insurance (Glenview, IL).

    Interview

    After checking in with security in the lobby, I was greeted by a friendly and kind executive assistant, who escorted me upstairs. I was given a brief tour of Combined's floor before I was seated in a conference room for the first of four interviews. I found each interviewer to be pleasant, genuine and informative. I discussed my experience and education, answered questions on my background and goals, and had any of my questions answered. I finished with a lunch with two executives, both of whom were gracious, accomplished and welcoming. My entire experience was excellent. I declined the offer for reasons outside of the company and my experience with them.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Combined Insurance in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online for Territory Manager, got a call back that evening which was impressive briefly talked about position whats to be expected that they do pay salary and travel is expected and then he asked me to send over another copy of my resume. He called back the next morning stating going over everything again which is where everything changed he started talking about commission only position, cold calls, pavement pounding ect. I was confused asked him if this was a sales position not a management position which is what I applied for he then said I didn't have enough management experience (I have 15yrs) for what the are looking for so he is offering me something different. That was not profession at all

    Senior PR/Communications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Glenview, IL
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Combined Insurance (Glenview, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by Hirewell, the organization's recruiting firm. After a preliminary recruiter phone screen, I had a phone interview with the hiring manager (AVP of talent/communications). A few days later, I was invited in to meet with her, the VP of global marketing and SVP of human resources. There was also a timed release writing/media strategy test. The interview process was a good experience, but I was not comfortable with PR/communications reporting to HR instead of marketing, especially after lengthy discussions with the hiring manager.

    Very informative. Company background, goals, careers, and benefits . They review your resume, followed by the information process. If you are able to receive an offer, you will receive an offer by the end of the interview, or at least this is what I experienced.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Combined Insurance.

    Interview

    Had posted my resume on Monster and received a phone call from the local manager asking me to come meet her for an interview. The interview took place at a Panera Bread which was odd. She then introduced me to her team which was having their meeting in a back room. She explained that I would have to get my insurance license and that they would send me to school for that for three weeks. I was in need of a job so I accepted. After being in a hotel for three weeks (you aren't permitted to leave other than to go to classes) I went to the field to work.
