    Claims Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Albuquerque, NM
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Albuquerque, NM
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in December 2008.

    Interview Details

    There were 5 supervisors and 1 manager on the interview panel. The interview is a behavioral based interview (BBI). If they ask you a question you have to be very specific and give an example for each answer. I found out later that all panel members have to agree to hire you. Even if 5 of the 6 want to hire you they will not unless all agree. They wanted to hire me but had another person that filled the position. I continued to call every month and after 6 months they offered me a position.

    Interview Questions
    • Have you ever presented an idea to your employer that was implemented? What was the idea?   Answer Question
    • Name 3 qualities of a leader. Give an example of each quality.   Answer Question

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    I first applied to the job and got an email from a recruiter telling me I would get a phone interview. The phone interview was mostly behavioral questions, but were involved. Then I had to take a series of tests. The tests were very difficult, but I did pass them. I had another phone interview with what would have been my boss and there were more behavioral based quesitons. He didn't send me on in the process from there.

    Claims Adjuster Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in May 2011.

    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

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    Initial HR screening followed by two hour+ interviews with a multi-person panel. Took several proactive follow-up phone calls before job was offered. Very in depth and through questions to weed out those just trying to get any job. It appears the Catastrophe Department prefers "street" hires - those without any prior insurance experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Just come prepared with a specific example of a prior experience of a time you've been in a difficult situation.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Since I worked for them in the past, I was offered a higher salary; however, it was not negotiable.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter called to reschedule 25 minutes before the first appointment. During the phone screen, the first question from the Farmers recruiter was salary and I was told that it was policy that they have my current salary and my expectation to move forward. I withdrew from the process. She literally spent five minutes on salary and the phone call was 12 minutes. Are they doing salary surveys or screening for skill fit?

    I applied online – interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was very streamlined. From the time of my initial phone screening to the final offer was about 2.5 weeks. It's clear that this company knows what they are looking for, and will only advance you through the process if they feel you meet that criteria. I had no help with obtaining this position i.e. someone on the inside but being confident is key.
