    Pros

    The culture is pretty amazing. They stand behind their mission statement of protecting the short and long term goals of educators. Starting off, you receive quite a lot of paid time off which is nice for switching jobs where you had vacation built up already

    Cons

    They tend to "restructure" departments fairly frequently, so management and key players change often. A recent (since late 2013) trend has been downsizing when these restructures happen. While the benefits are good, the pay is below what I would consider average for similar companies in similar size cities.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Horace Mann.

    Interview

    Applied for the position, about a week later I got a call back from a recruiter who said the company was interested in me coming in to interview for a data entry lever position. The day of my interview I went in, took a data entry test to see what my skill and accuracy was, then I sat with my recruiter to do the interview. She was nice, professional, made me feel at ease. Typical job interview questions. All went well and I felt good about my possibilities in being offered a position as I left that day.

    Interview Questions
