Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Auto-Owners Insurance (Lansing, MI) in January 2017.

Interview

Process was one interview session in two parts. Each part was with two people. Asked typical personality and experience questions. Nothing technical. All people were very friendly. The interview was much less stressful than a one on one. Having two interviewers made it feel more like a conversation.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Auto-Owners Insurance (Lansing, MI) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I was there for a maximum of 35 minutes. There were two supervisors interviewing me. They didn't ask me many questions. For the questions they did ask, I had solid answers. Overall, I was confused by their lack of interest in asking me questions. I left knowing that I did the best I could.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Auto-Owners Insurance (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I thought that they didn't ask a lot of good business questions and left a lot up in the air. They did not ask about my experience overall. I was expecting a lot of insurance questions and did not get them. I thought the people that interviewed me were very young and inexperienced.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Auto-Owners Insurance (Minneapolis, MN) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process was completed in an hour and a half. Had three separate interviews. The first interview was with the commercial lines underwriting supervisor and consisted of basic interview questions. They seemed to want to get to know your personality because alot of the questions were based off of how you managed dealing with people in your last job and in college. The second interview was with the personal lines underwriting supervisors and consisted of the exact same questions as the first interview. The last interview was with the underwriting manager for the building and was just a casual get to know you session. It took two weeks for them to call me back due to them not being able to get ahold of my references at first.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Auto-Owners Insurance.

    Interview

    Quick, not a lot of time with the people you interview with. 4 interviews with various departments. Lasted a total of 20 minutes. Interviewers are very friendly. No hard questions, no questions that take you out of comfort zone. Very laid back interview process. Waiting for a response from the company takes a long time.

    Negotiation

    They won't negotiate. The offer is the offer. You can take it or leave it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Auto-Owners Insurance (Lexington-Fayette, KY).

    Interview

    Submitted application online. Sucks because they don't post job openings so you have no clue what they have available so you're taking a risk at wasting your time. Received a call in two weeks and invited for an interview. Interviewed with the RVP and 2 managers for an hour. Received a call for the job in two weeks. The salary offered was lower than I what asked for and much lower than the national average for similar experience and job title. Asked if they were willing to negotiate and they said no. Really needed the job so I accepted.
