    I worked at Safeco


    Good co-workers, pay and flexibility.


    Senior management does not know how to properly manage their people. Behind their parent company technology and it always seem like the parent company could change something or get rid of Safeco at anytime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the company surveys and really take action on them. Don't pretend to understand them, input a band-aid fix and fudge over the details.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process went very quickly. I applied online on September 28, 2014 and received a call for a phone interview the first week of October. A couple days later I was scheduled for an in person interview the following week. I was interviewed by two different managers. They both asked a lot of behavioral questions and described the job some. I was then taken back on the floor to do some job shadowing. The entire process was about 3 hours. Two days later I was offered the position.
