    Pros

    1. Good work environment, everyone is always very friendly and always willing to help you to better yourself with the company

    2. Great benefits, you receive health, dental, vision as well 401k. With that you also receive free membership to the local health club and many discounts for travel, hotels, software and cell phone.

    3. There are many opportunities to grow with this company and many advancements through the ranks.

    4. Pay is good. Not great but definitely better than many companies

    5. Training and getting licensed is all paid for by Gerber Life. This is worth it right there.. licensing can cost houndreds of dollars if you where to do it on your own, including the finger printing and background checks.. this is a wonderful treat that Gerber Life does for its employees

    Cons

    Very sedentary.. you sit at a desk all day staring at a computer screen and you cant really go anywhere because you are on a phone line which often feels like a tether

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Gerber Life (Fremont, MI) in March 2014.

    Interview

    My total interview timeline was about 2 weeks. I was called and offered an opportunity to apply for an open position. After applying online, I received a phone interview that same day. I was asked about my employment history and my educational background. It was a basic interview to get to know more about me. After my interview I did a placement test online the following day and than did another phone interview because I was applying for a bilingual position. This interview was less formal. It was to test my spanish skills and was more of a conversation than an interview. I was then given a call back the following day to schedule a face to face interview. That interview was scheduled for the following week. The interview was long and had more detailed questions, such as what do you do when faced with an angry customer, what do you do when a company's practices go against your views, what is your strongest point and your weakest point. I finished the interview and on my drive home I received a call from the HR department extending me an offer. I received an official letter via email, I printed it signed it and mailed it back to the company. I than had to wait for a drug screening and background check. I didn't officially start for another 3 weeks after the interview process was over.
