    I have been working at Shelter Insurance part-time (more than an year)


    Good base compensation, great support staff, upper-management truly cares and wants you to be successful. Very competitive rates which stems from their regional focus which I really like.


    Slow-moving, one of the more conservative insurance companies out there. Keep pushing the stick out a little further, which is typical of insurance and sales based jobs

    Casualty Claims Adjuster Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Shelter Insurance in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Shelter has a three-part interview process: first you go in for a meet and greet interview where they determine whether you're a good fit, personally. Then, if you are selected (they pare the competition down to the four top candidates), you take an online personality test, followed by a “professional” online section. Each of these tests are timed so don't take too long answering. The professional section deals with several data-heavy charts. It's basically logic problems-- you answer multiple choice questions.

    Next, if you pass, you have a formal STAR (behavioral) interview with each of three managers. The questions are in a packet from Shelter HR and there is little or no deviation from the questions. Prepare to repeat yourself a lot.

    The questions deal with conflict resolution, customer service and, strangely, seem to focus on things like “your greatest regret.” There were a lot of questions relating to mistakes and things you'd do differently. Each interview is supposed to take an hour. Make sure you have lots of stories to tell. Also, make sure you complete the STAR (situation/task, action, result) with the the RESULT. They take off points if you forget to articulate the result.

    Once you are called for an interview (several weeks after the online application), the process only takes 2 weeks.

    The experience was a positive one and I got excellent feedback. The person who got the job was an internal candidate.
