    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Economical Insurance Group in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    it's a 3-4 week process, kinds of slow. Normally you can't negotiate the salary, but you can try if you get the offer. Phone interview by HR with some questions of your resume, Interview 1:1 by service manager with lots of behaviour questions, not easy.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Economical Insurance Group in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and I received a call asking me to come in for an interview about 2 weeks later. It was a panel consisting of 2 interviewers. The interview was about 45 minutes long and the questions were the usual type. There was nothing unexpected and the interviewers were very nice and accommodating. I received a call 2 weeks later with the news that I was unsuccessful. However, the interviewer couldn't have been nicer about it and even encouraged me to apply in the future as I had some great qualities they were looking for.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Economical Insurance Group.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by the department administrative assistant via phone to set up an in-person interview. I was interviewing with another company at the time, and Economical moved their interview schedules up to coordinate with my other interviews. The interviewers were very friendly, and were very open about what their timelines for getting back to me would be.

    wasn't very pleasant. They wanted someone like me with a vast amount of relevant experience but didn't want to pay for it. Took a few tries. Walked away twice before getting what I wanted.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at Economical Insurance Group in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    The process is straightforward. First a HR guy called me and asked several HR questions. Several days later, they told to have a on-site interview. A resource manager, a technical leader and a service manager interviewed me. They asked some OB questions and also technical questions, not very hot questions. The interviewers were friendly and nice. I like them.
