Property Claims Adjuster Interview

Property Claims Adjuster
Sacramento, CA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in February 2013.

Interview Details – Submitted online application through Farmer's website. 2 weeks later received email from HR to setup phone interview. Phone interview took about 30 minutes and consisted of behavior based questions. Next step was taking a personality test and logic, grammar and math assessments. HR advised that if I had passed assessments my profile would be sent to the branch level for in-person interview. The following week received call for in-person interview. HR original had stated that in-person interview would be with a manager and 2 supervisor but actual interview turned out to be a 'get to know you' interview for manager to determine if candidates would return for actual in-depth interview.

Interview Question – Are you willing to relocate to further you career? What did you least like about your last position? Tell me a time when you felt overwhelmed and how you handled it?   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Sales Interview

Sales
Carson City, NV

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in March 2014.

Interview Details – Walked into an empty office 10 mins before my interview. 5 mins later a lady walks out of the restroom and was surprised that I was early for my interview. We walked back to an office. She then started to explain the job and told me how my job were such great experience. Well it wasn't a job job, I would first have to pay for a background check then talk some classes and then go into a reserve where I might be about to become a insurance agent. I immediately told her that I was not interested. She then asked me if my husband would be interested and to show him the booklet. ( She never meet him and only knew of him because I said I was married.) Diffidently seemed scam-y

Interview Question – None- She asked me no questions just told me I was a great fit.   Answer Question

Insurance Agent Interview

Insurance Agent
Des Plaines, IL

I applied online and the process took 6 days - interviewed 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 Question – 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

Reason for Declining – I declined because I don't want to have to take out a loan to be able to work.
