    Farmers Insurance Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    First they call you to ask if there's a time where you could do a phone interview first. That interview takes about 45 minutes to an hour. They will ask questions like "If you could do anything in the world for a job and be paid for it what would it be?"
    "How do you get complete strangers to trust you?"

    It's a relatively easy interview, just make sure your answers are longer and more of a conversation than an interview and they'll love you.

    Reasons for Declining

    Because you have to get your license which the total cost is $750 and are not paid while you're getting your license. After that it's completely commission based. Yes it becomes residual income, but my biggest fear is not having a guaranteed income.

    Farmers Insurance Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group.

    Interview Details

    The hiring manager saw my resume from an online job search site. He called me and I was scheduled for an interview the next day. The interview wasn't really difficult. He just asked me about the details of my previous jobs. Then, he explained the job and the benefits if I decided to join the Company. The quota seems high (although I am not a salesperson and I really don't know the industry). Hence, I decided not to pursue my application with them.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was actually easy. I met with a recruiter and basically she went over all the things offered if I were to become an agent. She told me right then I was accepted. This of course was after I completed the background/credit check. It really was a too good to be true type interview. I got the offer but after looking at reviews not sure if I am going to sign the contract.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went in just for more information about a possible customer service role with the company. They wanted to talk to me about an agency owner position so I listened to what they had to say. By the time I left I had a completely new outlook on the company itself and it made me excited for the new possibilities. The interview process was very fast and everybody I met through the company from the receptionist to the owner of the branch were extremely friendly with a no pressure atmosphere of any kind.

    Interview Questions
    • To be successful it was explained to me that you need to be willing to spend money to make money and in the end depending on your people and relationship building skills it can be a huge return but none the less I was asked if I thought I would be financially able to work there starting from the beginning before getting to the point of reaching those high returns after the initial few months of training was over.   Answer Question
