Easy Interview

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Seattle, WA

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.

Interview Question – What is something you regret from your professional experience.   Answer Question

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.

Property Claims Specialist I Interview

Property Claims Specialist I
Richardson, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – Why don't you have a masters degree?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – here's what we are paying, take it or leave it.

Never heard back from anyone at company even after emailing to check on status, so
