    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Westfield Insurance.

    Interview

    Did a phone interview where I made it clear that although I was licensed, all my experience was in the personal auto insurance field. I was called anyway by the Supervisor the next week who wanted to set up an interview. I went to the interview and the Supervisor and the Manager were present for the interview. Both ladies were very pleasant. However, my lack of knowledge in the homeowners portion was questioned. As I did not have an example to give from the personal lines as select, I was advised to give an example of difficult situation from my prior job. I did so and it was obvious that they did not believe my response and considered be to be a liar. Admittedly as I figured the lack of knowledge/experience was going to be an issue within the first few minutes I didn't much care what came out of my mouth out of that. If you do not have homeowners sales and quoting experience don't bother wasting your time going to the interview. I did so and it was obvious that they

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Westfield Insurance.

    Interview

    Phone interview, then on-campus 4 hour interview two months later, then another on-campus 4 hour interview two months after that. Didn't find out until two months after this. Absolutely ridiculous for an interview process to take 6 months. It didn't help that I was unable to contact anyone during this two months of waiting to get any indication. Worst interview process I have ever seen/heard of.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Westfield Insurance.

    Interview

    The first step was a typical phone interview. Afterwards, you were invited for an on site interview. Accommodations were provided at their on site hotel. On site interview consisted of a tour, lunch and panel interview. Interview was panel style that consisted of 2-4 employees at a time. The on site interview process was quite lengthy and took the better part of a work day.

    Interview Questions

    • Be prepared for a group interview containing several situational questions. I would recommend having a good background story in place as most questions were designed to see how you would fit in with the company. Questions were not as job specific oriented as I had expected, mostly personality based questions.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I had a brief interview over the phone and then a face to face interview with two people. After a back ground check I was extended an offer and I accepted. I worked for them for two years and the job was good. The people were very nice and the pay and perks seemed competitive with the industry. After two years I decided that insurance claims was not a good fit for a long term career for me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Westfield Insurance.

    Interview

    Most contact was via email. The interview process started with an initial phone screen from HR. Then a first interview was scheduled with basic/typical questions. The second interview was scheduled by the end of the week for the following week. These were done as a committee, the first interview with one person asking the questions, the second had a round of questions one right after the other each from a different person. Just be prepared for multiple interviewers in one room at the same time, stay calm, and answer honestly.

    Negotiation

    It was a very fair offer. I have heard people suggest to get what you can up front like vacation time the first year, higher pay (mine was very fair) since the raises seem to average about 2%-3% each year.
