    Application

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in March 2015.

    Interview

    Was recruited online through a job website. Called multiple times and I returned call. Set up interview for next day. Interview was fairly easy mostly a "sales" type interview. Experience in sales of any kind is a must for this company. They look for confident individuals looking to further their own personal brand as well as the companies brand. This job is not for people who need a steady income.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group (Emeryville, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was called by a recruiter and informed they were interviewing for all types of positions. I was then told I could come in for an interview a few days later.I was told to dress professional when coming. When I arrived everyone was dressed in jeans and casual, then I was told it was casual Friday which is not the most professional if you have jeans on and your candidate is dressed in a suit. Then I was taken into the back office and basically it was a sales pitch on becoming a agent sat down was asked what I know about insurance, what I know about farmers and what I am looking for in a position. Then the farmers employee read off his computer powerpoint screen with an ipad for me to read along with. To me makes it a lot less impersonal when reading. the presentation was all towards sales and commissions and being an agent. Then came to talking bout if I was interested in working in the support area I would have to pass a background criminal and credit and how in depth it were and how I can't have anything on my credit like collections, just because I'm unemployed doesn't mean I don't pay bills. The interviewer made it a point to repeat himself with nothing in my background can be found in order to move forward. Also to be in any role with farmers you have to pass the license tests. At the end of supposed interview I was then asked if I was really serious about moving forward and if I was I would have to pay for my own criminal and credit background and my own credentials in order to even be considered for positions. Wouldn't recommend wasting your time unless you are willing to not be paid until your officially an agent and want to be a sales person.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in March 2015.

    Interview

    BBI (behavioral based interview). They prefer that you use the STAR method which means you need to answer with a specific example of something you have gone through either in the workplace or in the classroom. You are not given many opportunities to boast any accolades so be prepared to drop your guard and give honest examples even if they make you look bad. It is important to address the action you took and the result.

    Application

    I applied online – 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.
