Initial interview with the recruiter. Then the candidate must submit a letter of interest. Next the candidate must pass the background and credit check. 2nd interview with the district manager. Candidate must then pass two state insurance exams. Next the newly appointed agent then enters the training phase.

    Property Claims Representative Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Filled out online application then received an email within 2 days to proceed with an assessment. After passing the assessment, I received an email to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes with a recruiter, after which I was immediately told I was going to move forward to the first in-person interview. I interviewed with a panel of 3 State Farm property managers. The interview lasted about 2 hours, and it was was fairly intense. The questions were pre-determined, and the interviewers furiously took notes during each response. They are truly looking for strong, detailed answers to very specific questions. They appeared to truly like my personality and work experience. I received a phone call within 1 week to proceed to the second in-person interview with - yes, another panel. This time I met with a panel of 3 people who were there to assess more about me and my personality. The questions were more about how I would react or respond to different situations rather than being about my work history. This interview was much more relaxed, and the panel seemed to really like me and my responses. It lasted about 1 hour. I felt confident after my interview, but unfortunately a few days later I received an email saying they went another way. If I were to proceed, I learned that there would in fact be a ride-along and a THIRD panel interview. (wow!)
