    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Farmers Automobile Insurance (Oklahoma City, OK) in June 2008.

    Interview

    There was an initial phone screening with an HR representative. Then they asked me to come in to the office to take a skills test and a personality test. Then they asked me to come back for an interview/information session.

    Several other candidates were present during the information session, which included a brief introduction from a senior manager and introductions to the supervisor team. Then, there was a brief tour of the facility. Next, they brought the candidates individually into a room with a few supervisors and managers, where they asked behavioral questions and questions about the resume. Then they rotated me to another room, where a different set of supervisors and managers asked similar questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time when you were asked to do something, but failed to complete the task. What led you to fail, and what do you think you can do to prevent this from happening in the future?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    This was an entry-level job that required no special skill set, so there was no room for negotiation. If a job is offered, a salary offer is made that can be accepted or rejected.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Farmers Automobile Insurance in May 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of going to the local branch to speak one-on-one with an agent that works there. He asked typical questions about me and talked about their company. He did not act like he knew how to ask good interview questions, which is understandable, because he's an agent there and there wasn't a real HR department for their small branch. It was a good interview but I did not get the job.
