Insurance Agent Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Allstate (Beverly, IL) in January 2017.

Interview

After seeing job posting on a job board, I called the location. The manager asked a few screening questions, then set me up to come in and take an assessment. It's useful to have your resume, you'll need to create a profile. The assessment consisted of multiple choice personality test, problem solving and short answer. My scores were satisfactory so I was then asked to fill out job application and then scheduled for an interview later that week.

Interview Questions

Reasons for Declining

Job was initially misrepresented. It listed a base salary of $35-$40k, but was much less w/o commissions. They also said paid training, which was false but the manager tried to sell me on teaching me everything she knew free of charge. If you want your business to succeed you should invest in your team. With every job I've had they had free on the job training, YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO! Ad also mentioned health benefits, none were offered. 401k after one year, and nearly no days off! However, it was an enlightening experience but I don't feel like you should have to sell me a job, I should be selling myself to the company

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Allstate in February 2016.

    Interview

    Very long and excessive, costly, and unprofessional. Your start date will be contingent to you passing the licensing exams. You will submit to a phone interview, submit multiple references, multiple personality tests, and multiple in person interviews, as well as on call training in the interview process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Allstate (Hicksville, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online through a craigslist posting and was contacted about a week later for a short phone interview then upon further evaluation of my online application an in person interview was scheduled. Interview lasted about an hour or so. Basic and straight forward questions; mostly regarding your past work experience and why you're interested in the job. If you do well on the interview they have you come back in at a later date to try cold calls on the phone, which is an absolute joke if you have 0 experience in insurance sales. the whole point of the process is for them to hear what you sound like on the phone even though they propose it as an opportunity to get leads prior to you getting your insurance license. They barely payed attention to me on the phone so I don't know how efficient this process is in selecting candidates to go on to take the insurance licensing test.

    Pathetic base salary offer of 8$/hour. The ad promised 34k a year if your good, 50k if your great and 60k if you're a "superstar". They do promise regulated increases every 6 months pending performance review but regardless you can make more working retail and there are other insurance companies that will start you off more than double then that on top of commission, benefits and paying for your insurance license(Geico) These guys are crooks.

    Interview

    I responded to a listing on the internet via email and received an email back from the agency owner. He stated that I would need to email the office manager about the position. I emailed the office manager and he sent me a personality test over email and told me to complete it and send it back in and he would be contacting me shortly. After completing the survey and sending it back in, he scheduled an interview with me at the office. I interviewed with him and he was very friendly and conversational. He asked me many basic questions, but focused on why i would be a good salesman for the most part. The interview went well and i was hired on the spot. I started later that week as a telemarketer. I was a telemarketer for the next couple weeks to gain experience talking to customers about insurance, then i switched over to a Property and Casualty Insurance Producer.
