Grange Insurance (Columbus) – Why Work For Us?

Grange Insurance


We’re not your typical insurance company. And we think that’s a good thing. We value work-life balance and have worked hard to build a culture that is challenging yet rewarding, where both an entrepreneurial spirit and a sense of humor are encouraged. What makes Grange stand out from other insurance companies is simple – we know the power of our company ultimately comes from our associates.

Associate Wellness Program

We believe the road to a productive, rewarding work environment begins with associate wellness and, for the past two years, have been recognized as one of Central Ohio’s “Healthiest Employers.” As part of our wellness program, associates has access to a variety of free services including an onsite fitness facility and personal trainer, regularly scheduled fitness classes, weight management and wellness incentive programs, an onsite nurse and much more.

Leadership and Training Opportunities

Grange is continually investing in our associates, offering lots of opportunities for growth and continued learning for employees in all positions. Through online eLearning and instructor led courses, associates are able to build skill sets that apply to their individual career path.

Associate Resource Groups

Whether it’s “Women in Leadership” or “Grange Young Professionals,” associates have access to multiple professional groups that foster learning, innovation and growth. By participating, associates learn from one another on a personal and professional level, contribute to the business outside of their current role and inspire new, innovative ideas that will help move the organization forward. 





Formed in 1935 to provide affordable auto insurance to rural drivers, Grange Insurance is now a billion-dollar plus insurance provider serving policyholders in 13 states exclusively through the independent insurance agent system.

Why does Grange only sell its products through independent agents? Since its inception, Grange has believed that the independent agent in your community has the expertise and local knowledge to help you find the right coverage for all your insurance needs, whether it’s your auto, home, business or life.

Although formed to provide a specific product for a specific group, even in its earliest days company leaders were thinking about how to make their product more appealing to a wider range of customers. Following World War II, company founder and President John C. Haaf prevailed in his quest to offer a wider range of products to a more diverse customer base.

Since then, Grange has consistently added new products and services, updated technology and been committed to being a financially strong organization. Not only does this help us meet the ever-changing needs of our agents and policyholders, but it ensures that we’re always there when you need us. Further, our commitment to providing “Ease Of Doing Business® (EODB)” remains a driving force in guiding decisions that affect our relationship with you.

The company logos on this page reflect the Grange Mutual Casualty Company during the eras represented. From a company focused on rural customers in its early days to one that strives to help people live their lives the way they do today, Grange has grown with the times.

Our challenge is to always evolve while providing financial security for you, your family and your business. All Grange associates work hard every day to meet this challenge and to make the communities we serve better places to live, work and raise a family.


Join Us in Celebrating Grange’s 75 Years of Service

Grange Insurance commissioned artist Lawrence Romorini to create a special piece of art to commemorate the company’s 75 years of service to policyholders and the communities we serve, as well as to honor the dedication of our agents and associates.

The artwork comprises original items and reproductions from Grange’s archives that represent significant achievements in the company’s history. This original artwork, measuring 67”x62”x5”, is on permanent display at Grange’s corporate headquarters in Columbus, Ohio.

One of Grange’s five core values is to “do the right thing.” Not only does this principle guide us when providing peace of mind to our policyholders in their time of need, but it also drives our commitment to serving children and families in our community. 


Grange associates volunteer thousands of hours of time and talent to various charities, and many officers serve on the boards of local nonprofit organizations. Grange was awarded the Employee Volunteerism Award from United Way in 2013 and, in 2014, received a Business First’s Corporate Caring Award.


Our Philanthropic Focus

We’re proud to lend our financial support, time and talents to organizations that transform lives, provide comfort and enrich the community. Primarily, we focus our support on 501(c) (3) organizations in these categories:

  • Health and human services 
  • Education 
  • Arts and community enrichment programs


Grange Insurance Audubon Center

Grange supports many organizations but has always specifically invested in those that enhance children’s lives. The Grange Insurance Audubon Center, which opened in the summer of 2009, provides educational and recreational activities for students and families throughout the central Ohio area. This former site of dilapidated warehouses and brown fields has been converted to a nature oasis along the downtown Columbus riverfront where schoolchildren can participate in hands-on, nature-based education.

    Internet Programmer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Grange Insurance (Columbus) in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first had a face to face with the Recruiter. I then had a phone interview with GI's HR dept. I interviewed for two separate positions. I came into the office on different days to interview for each position. On each occasion, I met with the dept manager and subsequently had a technical interview with two leads. The technical interviews were conversational with some written tests. The managers were friendly and even reassuring. The leads were hard to read as technical people often are.

    Interview Questions
    • Pretty typical questions mostly about C#. I would recommend brushing up by reading some sample interview questions.   Answer Question
