Property Damage Adjuster Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Safe Auto in August 2012.
Interview Details – I was originally contacted by a recruiter after submitting a resume (a friend of mine was a current employee and put in a recommendation). The phone screen was pretty basic, gave a description of the job and I went over the main points on my resume. The interview was with three different managers in a panel setting. The questions were straight forward, mostly about handling stress, staying organized and critical thinking/investigating. Most questions were situational.
Interview Question – No questions were really unexpected or out of the ordinary Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I did not attempt to negotiate my salary

Business Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Safe Auto.
Interview Details – I interviewed with department members and a department head separately. During the interview with the dept members, I was asked questions in areas that were not my skillset and expected to answer them intelligently. One of the managers kept asking me ambiguous questions, only stayed for a 1/2 hr (to attend a meeting) of the 1 hr interview and offered me "suggestions" which I was taken aback by as I found it inappropriate. After he left the interview, the rest of it seemed to go pretty well. Once I met with the dept head, I left feeling relatively confident, but unsure about the manager as he didn't stay long enough during the interview to really get to know me and provide the opportunity to sell myself especially since the questions relative to the position they were hiring for and along my skillset came afterwards. So the interview was shaky to start but it seemed to end well. I was disappointed when I received the feedback that I was not able to clearly give examples of my work and I believe this feedback was directly from the manager who didn't stay for the interview. I think this was an unfair assessment. I was also frustrated at being asked ambiguous questions and subsequently criticized for giving ambiguous responses especially as I was bound by NDA's from prior positions. As regards ambiguous questions, I did specifically ask for examples so I could better answer their questions however none came.
Service Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Safe Auto in June 2009.
Interview Details – Received a phone call from the HR recruiter, set up my first interview with the recruiter. They called me back for a second interview with two department managers on a different day. They called me back about a day later and offered me the position after I passed a background check and drug test.
The whole process took less than a week.
Actuarial Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Safe Auto in August 2009.
Interview Details – I was contacted through a recruiter who set up the interview. I had an initial interview with the department head that lasted about an hour. Based on that, some time later I received a follow-up interview that was much more in-depth. It lasted more than 3 hours and included talks with HR, the department head again, the CFO, and other department personnel. I left feeling confident and pleased with the people I had met and looked forward to the opportunity to work with them.
