    I interviewed with Farmers in spring of 2014. Very pleasant and professional staff. Was reached out to in an email, then showed up for the face to face interview. Asked me questions pertaining to my current job and experiences. I was then asked to return for an seminar about the company and what the position entailed. Overall, easygoing and professional interview.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Farmers Insurance Group.

    Interview Details

    Interview consisted of you reaction to his question, not necessarily the answers you gave. Looking for an understanding that "to make money you must spend money". Also needs an understanding that you will not be making money right away. It takes time, money, and a lot of studying to be successful.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    There really wasn't an interview because I was not asked any questions besides how i felt about the information I was told about the training process and commitment. I was sent an email by a recruiter and asked to come in for an interview, it was never specified what position was available. I wish I had asked that before I agreed to going in. I wasn't interested in an Agent position.

    Interview Questions
    • The only questions I was asked was how I felt about the training process and if i was interested in being a business owner.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter called the morning after submitted my resume and we set up an interview within three days. The interview was pleasant and he was very nice, however, what it continually referred to a subsidy is really a loan. If you fail to meet your goals for a quarter they start having you pay back your subsity.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't any questions, we chatted a bit, he asked me to fill out an application, complete with a complete financial statement.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    "Applied" at a military job fair. Interviewed on the phone, then went for an initial in person interview about a week later. Met with just their corporate recruiter for the first interview. Went back in for a second interview a couple weeks after that due to weather and holidays. Both the corporate recruiter and a manager were there. I was asked various questions and then shown a pretty well put together presentation. I was then shown salaries for some of their agents.

    Interview Questions
    • No curve balls at all, just do a little research on the company before going in.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I did a lot of research and only found a couple positive things being said about being an agent. The branch I interviewed with seemed legitimately interested in their employees' success, but it just wasn't for me. However, the earning potential is pretty crazy.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I thought I was called for an agent assistant interview. I set up an interview. I wasn't sure what to expect but, It was a personal interview with I believe the office manager at their District office. The interview went very well of course they broke down the business plan of how to become an agent. After you gent your license within the allotted 3 to 4 weeks period they will reimburse you for the online classes and exams.

    • None of the questions were difficult. It was very relaxed and just getting to know you type interview.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I could not live off of the commission being a new agent until the "draw" would be applied which was 3 to 4 month process.
