Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group.

Interview

very easy. One phone call and went in the next day for an in-person. Pretty much hire anyone that has an OK financial background and is dumb enough to get started in the business

Interview Questions

  • Do you plan on staying in San Diego? Are you self driven? Competitive? -- its all a rush to get you started so they can start pulling in your policies so that if any time you leave they keep them and you have to pay back to the loan that they tell you you don't have to repay although most people do because the bar is so high it almost unobtainable   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in July 2015.

    Interview

    Their recruiter contacted me and we had a short phone interview. From there I had one interview with Human Resource manager and they had me fill out out a background check. The background check took about a week and a half to come back and once it did I was called back to meet with the district manager. We went over some of the same questions as the first interview we spoke more in depth about process to become and independent agent.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group (Emeryville, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    You come in and the Interviewer talks about your background and career aspirations. After that, they will describe what the job is. What I mean by describe is that they will try to paint a pretty picture for you and "sell" this job to you. After they consider you they will give you a tour of the office and get you started on getting your state licenses to sell insurance.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group.

    Interview

    Basic interview process with background check. Contacted by recruiter, took an aptitude test, then interviewed. Ultimately, you need to be licensed in P&C and Life & health and complete the one month long training program which you aren't paid for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group.

    Interview

    Its a three part process with three interviews in person after a brief phone questionnaire. The initial interview was more like a sales pitch of a the company than an interview of me. I felt like I was being sold beach front property in the FL everglades. It is a commission only position till you have 44 sales and then the base pay is $2500 a month with a 25 sale per month expectation. The interviewer went on and on about the other people she had interviewed in the past for this position including an Olympic athlete...no mention of this actually being a current employee.

    Interview

    The Reserve Field Manager was very persuading but not honest during the interview leaving many aspects out or providing untruthful information. Most of the information provided applied to experienced Agents. No note of the financial resources needed.

    Interview Questions

    • None. The interviewer is paid based on the number of interviews.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Be ready to invest money. Not a job.
