Our Hiring Process
Want to join our family? Our automated online application starts the process. This tool is customized to screen for both skill sets and culture fit.
Our next step if there is a position match is a phone interview with a recruiter from our Talent Management team. Candidates who pass this phase are then scheduled for additional skills testing and a face-to-face interview with the recruiter. The next step involves an interview with the hiring manager, and then usually a team interview to ensure fit with the whole team.
“When interviewing for a management position with American Fidelity earlier this year, I interviewed with members of the team I now manage, my peers in the department, peers of the hiring manager and even the CFO and the president of insurance operations. Having the opportunity to interview and be interviewed by such a range of individuals enabled both me and the organization to determine if I was a good fit," said Jim Ward, Life Valuation Actuary manager.
We’re always looking for potential Colleagues with these skills:
American Fidelity’s New Headquarters
American Fidelity is moving to 9000 N. Broadway (near Britton and Broadway Extension), Oklahoma City, from our current headquarters near 23rd and Classen, OKC.

We are in the process of renovating the existing building and preparing for the move.

To ensure we have a smooth process, we are transitioning to the new property over the next three years. We will let everyone know when we’ve officially moved.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks – interviewed at American Fidelity Assurance Company (Springfield, IL) in February 2015.
There were plenty of "processes" and interviews involved, along with an interview with the Education head. I was even told at one point I had the job, there were just "a few more people to sign off". After 2 months of driving back and forth (100+ miles one-way), taking vacation days from work and weeks of not hearing anything, I was told they were going with someone else.
I'm quite relieved - if that's how they treat a prospective employee (who was going to take a huge pay cut to join their ranks, no less), I have a feeling that some of the reviewers who worked there may have been spot on. Good luck to them, I hope they find success in this ever-changing marketplace.
