    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Allstate (Dallas, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call a couple days later. I was asked why I was interested in the job and what type of past experience I had in sales and customer service. After discussing this I was told I would be sent an online test. This consisted of personality questions, some math and problem solving questions, and a few short answer questions. The next day day I got a call back to set up an in person interview. This interview was with the head manager. He went over my resume and asked more about past sales experience. He discussed what the job would consist of and what the company culture was like.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Allstate (Orlando, FL) in September 2014.

    Interview

    We crossed about 30 emails and various calls. So I decided to fly from Puerto Rico to Florida for the interview. Interview was informal and gave the opportunity to interact and exchange ideas. Was very friendly and explained well what was needed in the office and what would be expected from me.. Presented all personnel and explained there duties., quotas and experience. This is a fast paced Agency with all personnel on there feet, everybody was friendly and took there time and spoke to me. This is a goal oriented agency which seems to have a big employee turnover. I felt good and was well received in my understanding the atmosphere felt great. Only thing not exact was salary and benefits are minimal at the most. Second Day -- Gave a lot more information about how the office runs, marketing was fully explained and I understood that it is a big part of the business. Office was opened just for this second part of the interview. Third Day-- A meeting with Allstates Commercial leader was at 11;00 and was a great selling point for what I am interested in. We had lunch and salary was briefly touched. four days later I was offered a formal salary, commission and bonus based offer.. At the moment I am writing this I am studying the offer.

    Interview

    Very easy phone interview then a one on one interview..more than likely if you get a walk thru then you're hired. Background checks and everything afterwards is what becomes annoying. If you make it past that you'll be fine.
