    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Safeco in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process went very quickly. I applied online on September 28, 2014 and received a call for a phone interview the first week of October. A couple days later I was scheduled for an in person interview the following week. I was interviewed by two different managers. They both asked a lot of behavioral questions and described the job some. I was then taken back on the floor to do some job shadowing. The entire process was about 3 hours. Two days later I was offered the position.

    I was offered a base salary but I counter offered with the reasoning that I have a bachelors degree and insurance industry related experience. They countered back to me and met me in the middle of what they offered originally and what I had asked for. I accepted their counter offer.

    Gold Customer Service Interview

    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.

    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.

    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
