I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Federated Insurance in February 2010.
Interview Details – I was called into an interview with the regional manager. The interview was about 45 minutes long and I had to rate how important a list of attributes were on a scale of 1-10. In the end, I was told I did not have enough sales experience yet and I should apply later.
Interview Question – On a scale of 1-10, how important is discipline? Answer Question
The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Federated Insurance in March 2012.
Interview Details – I interviewed with Federated through a campus recruitment event. I was selected as a candidate through a pre-screening process based on my resume. The interview itself lasted a full hour, at the end I was told I was a good candidate and the next step in the interview process was an online personality assessment that would take approximately 2.5 hours.
My initial interview was postponed after my interviewer had a family issue and had to leave. It was rescheduled for a week and a half later. I received a phone call from my recruiter verifying the new interview date/time because he "forgot." I also received mixed messages from the recruiter about the follow-up process: he verbally informed me that he would call me to follow up, but in an email from his assistant said that I should call him.
After trying to contact my recruiter several times over the course of a few weeks he called me back at 6am on a weekday to tell me that I had passed the online assessment and his assistant would email me with a date for a second interview.
I never received the email and my calls went unanswered and were not returned.
I was disappointed with the lack of professionalism of my recruiter, as I had been very impressed with the company.
