Basic phone interview leading to an in person interview. It was typical questions that any other company would ask like: GPA, experience similar to job applied to. I would recommend this to friends because it is a great place to start a career any maybe be your future career.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Nationwide.

    Interview Details

    Every agency is different. I just went in, showed my licenses, gave my personal strengths and weaknesses, expectations, described past work history, and how I would be of benefit to the agency. It was only one single interview and then we met in a coffee shop later to discuss salary. Again, every agency is different. This was a VERY small agency.

    Negotiation Details
    Fight for your base salary. Commission percentages aren't enough to live off of until about the 2nd year.

    Interview Details

    This was for a satellite branch office. Interview was fairly casual as the interviewee was still setting up the new office in his jeans and a t-shirt. Very relaxed dialogue; he did most of the talking. He showed a lot of respect and referred to the interview being a two-way process and "mutual fit." I walked in wanting the job; by the end I really wanted to work for HIM.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Nationwide in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Personality evaluation is used. Phone calls and in person interviews you can expect 3 to 5. District Manger interview. Getting the insurance license is the most intensive. Out of pocket to pay for the training and the insurance tests. Without passing the state tests there is no hire. After being hired, further training is taken care of by the agency.

    Interview Questions
    • There wasn't a gotcha question, they are getting to know you and need to feel comfortable that you are honest and will do well by the agency and the people that in trust themselves to you.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Nationwide in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    There was an initial phone interview. Then I met with the primary agent face-to-face twice to discuss the job and my background. Then he made an offer at the end of the second interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a time when you had a client trying to go with another company and you were able to save the business.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I negotiated for over a month before accepting the job. I worked as an associate agent for a primary agent so your background experience in sales or insurance are your best negotiating tools. Also, you can try to ask for health insurance but it's usually not offered. I said I wouldn't leave unless it was for more guaranteed money with possibility to make more commission and have more flexibility with my working hours.
