    Insurance Sales Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Meridian, ID
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Meridian, ID
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Combined Insurance in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    To sum it up, what a joke! A regional recruiter contacted me and set up an interview. The following day the date of the interview was changed. Then later in the day it was changed again. I went to my interview and it seemed more like the regional guy trying to convince me to work there instead of a real interview. He then offered to take me on a ride along so that I could get a feel for how they sell. He chose the time and I rearranged my schedule to accommodate him. 20 minutes before my ride along was scheduled, as I was pulling out of my driveway, the manager called and said that he needed to reschedule the ride along because he needed to meet with his manager. I hesitantly agreed and waited a few days more. So then I show up at the office at the scheduled time and NO ONE WAS THERE! The office was locked and the lights were off. I try calling the guy and he didn't answer. I email him on my phone, no reply. I wait for 25 minutes or so and then leave. I then tried to call the regional recruiter who was in a meeting, he calls me back and tells me that the manager that I was supposed to meet with says that he was there the whole time and that I never showed up. He then relays that he believes my story as similar issues have arisen at this particular office. A few hours after this call I receive an email from the manager (who claimed that he was there the whole time) apologizing for not being there (which he told corporate that he was) asking to reschedule for the fourth time in 2 interview/meetings. I declined. Do not apply to this company. It is a farce, they lack organization and professionalism at a local level and jerk you around with no regard to your time or effort.

    Insurance Sales Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bedford, NH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bedford, NH
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Combined Insurance in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Started off as a group interview where the recruiter started talking about benefits and pay before even individually interviewing us to see if we were qualified. After that, we had one on one "interviews" but it was more so him asking him what we thought about the presentation, if we had any questions about it or the job, and when we could start.

    Beware though, you have to spend $200 on a software to study for your license to sell insurance and then they send you to Chicago to school to train before you can become an agent.

    The recruiter did let me shadow an agent first to see what it was like in the field.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Combined Insurance in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    What process...it was simple..I had a pulse. Depending on the grography it may be this way in certain pockets of the US. They hinge all recruiting efforts on the w2 status vs 1099 which does absolutely nothing for the employee..non-existent HR and zero support or development once in role.

    Career Agent Interview

    Interview Details

    Met the recruiter at a job fair and he invited me to the office the next day for an interview. It was a very relaxed atmosphere, and he spent a good deal of his time walking me through the company products/services. This was only the initial interview, and since it's not something I'm going to be pursuing, we didn't go beyond that.
