    Interview Details

    The interview process is very thorough. There will be several test you will have to pass before they consider hiring you. Also when you interview you will be interviewed by at least two supervisors. If you are hired be prepared to take the licensing exam which is pretty difficult. The company will pay twice after that you will be responsible, if you cannot pass expect to be terminated.

They will ask several 'tell me about a time.....' type questions.

    The interview was fair, but the first hurdle was an online assessment that wasn't expected when applying. The manager and the supervisor were very affable

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Safeco.

    Interview Details

    HR provides a thorough interviewing experience on par with all huge corporations. When you make it past their interview you then will be in front of the management that you will eventually work under. If you have a BS degree you are hired. A degree means more to this company than anything. No degree= no job even if you have been an adjuster for the past 20 years.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Safeco in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, got a request for an interview about a week later from a recruiter. 30 minute interview, pretty standard questions. About 2 weeks later, was contacted by the recruiter's intern to set up an hour long interview with 2 managers. This interview was more difficult as they asked more detailed questions about my experience but still behavioral based. Never heard back from anyone at company even after emailing to check on status, so

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Safeco in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Surprisingly easy. I had two phone interviews and one in person with 4 interviewers. I did not receive a case study although I know others who did. Basic interview type questions of what have you been most proud of, what do you need improvement on, tell me about a project that...

    One thing I thought was interesting was how HR bounced me around. I interviewed with 4 groups before landing a job. The responses from the first three interviews were "You sound great, but the hiring manager thinks you are better suited for a position in ___ group". I appreciated they kept trying with me even if it was disheartening originally.

    Negotiation Details
    I regret I did not negotiate much. I was offered the highest end of the salary range described in the position review and thought that was the highest they could pay me. Overall, the process was very simple and friendly.
