I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in January 2013.
Interview Details – The first thing that I did was submit an online application. The key was the employee referral to get above all the other candidates. Then I was called to schedule a time for testing all done on the computer. There was a typing test, computer navigation test, a grammar and spelling test, mathematical, and a multi tasking test. If you didn't pass each part of the test then you were done with the application and interview process. After passing all the tests then an interview was scheduled.
Interview Question – The interview was a behavioral interview. Situation, task, action, result. I cant recall the exact questions but they all deal with tough decisions that you had to make, a time when you had to be a mediator, when you had to prioritize, and when you had to change your plans or agenda etc. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. Your salary is your salary.
Very Difficult Interview
The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in March 2012.
Interview Details –
First I applied online via their website. I received a phone call from a recruiter about 3 weeks following my application. He asked me about my availability so he could conduct a phone interview. About 3 days later he conducted the phone interview. It was actually a little challenging and involved a few behavioral based questions and other basic interview question such as degree info and job history. it lasted about 10- 15 minutes. He actually gave me feed back and told me to Google behavioral based interview questions for my second in person panel style interview. He told me I would receive a call to schedule a in person panel interview. I received a call a few days later and we set up the panel interview to primarily be based on behavioral based question format. So I studied behavioral based interview questions and figured I was well prepared.
I actually got lost going to the interview (thanks to east and west of the same darn street. I had to call to ask for directions ( already 3 nails on the coffin , and consequently I was 5 minutes late) So starting off on a bad foot by being late made me more tense and nervous and sweaty. Then I walked into the interview room and there were two ladies and two guys to perform the interview ( I thought oh this should be fun!!) So the interview started and they started alternating asking me questions (oh which 85 % had not properly prepared for) So the interview went bad and I knew i did not get the job. They told me "we will call you if we decide you are the right fit) I thought sure you will!! so that's about it

Interview Details –
Upon receiving my resume, I was contacted via e-mail by their recruiter to do a telephone interview/review of the job position available . After that was a success, I was then advised that I had to take a timed test for reading comprehension, math and grammer/spelling. I had to have 80% or better to pass. I passed and was then contacted for an behavioral interview. The behavioral interview was in front of a 3 person panel, one manager and 2 supervisors wherein they asked me questions pertaining to my last job and to provide examples of what i did in particular situations. I was not prepared for the behavioral interview, and should have done more research on the type of questions they would ask and the best answers that i could provide. I did not get the job and was advised about a week later wherein they advised that i was not a fit for their company because they wanted someone whose skills and experience more closely match the position.
My suggestions: practice possible answers to questions and be confident in your answers.

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in September 2011.
Interview Details – Website for applications is good. Took almost two weeks to get back to me. Had a phone interview of the basic hiring process, was told I would need to take two tests online, one regarding attributes, the other basic math/reading comprehension. Received the email link quickly and response of pass/fail quickly. Another wait to hear from a local interviewer to schedule an appointment the following week. Met two managers for interview, I would say relaxed setting. They asked me direct situation questions regarding my work history.
