I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. in Aug 2022

Interview

1st round - phone screen with Corporate Recruiter 2nd round - Teams with Regional Recruiting Manager 3rd round - panel interview with 5 people (1 Regional Recruiting Manager, VP of Sales, VP of Client Mgmt, Project Manager, and Regional Planning Manager) Everyone that I interviewed with had been at Colonial Life for 3+ years and in the insurance industry for a few years. I do not come from the industry industry, but I do possess 4 years of recruiting and 3 years of sales experience. When I interviewed, I was told that I would struggle to build relationships since I wasn't from the industry. During the panel interview, there was only 1 question regarding recruiting which was "What sourcing tools do you use?" All the other questions were strictly behavioral questions which did not relate to recruiting. I should also note that none of Colonial Life's Regional Recruiting Manager's or Upper Management has worked in recruiting outside of Colonial Life. If you don't come from the insurance industry, you should look elsewhere. Colonial Life's diversity is also severely lacking.

Interview Questions

Interview

Total of three phone calls. Seems like they really don’t care who they hire since it was smooth sailing the entire time. Took forever to get the ball rolling after being offered the job. 100% commission based.

Interview

Misleading in that it is essentially a sales position. You can really only make money by recruiting others to sell under you. Very straightforward position once explained. Make your own hours. No benefits.

I applied online. I interviewed at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. (Fort Collins, CO) in Jul 2022

Interview

Unprofessional. Likely the worst interview I have ever had to sit through; I could not wait to have the interview over and almost cut the interview short myself within the first 5 minutes. Rather than asking anything about me or my experience, they just tried selling me on the job. Red flag #1. Neither “hiring manager” who was on the call had their camera on. Both were driving in their cars, while one had a new hire in his car at the time of the interview. The call kept cutting out due to them driving, so I had to ask them to repeat themselves on several occasions. Red flag #2-#5. There is no way I would have even considered hiring those 2 managers, if I was recruiting for the position. The interview had the used car salesman vibe. No thank you! They said they would send me an email to explain the pay structure and set up a 2nd interview, but I have not heard anything. I didn’t really hide the fact that I was unimpressed but did my best to be respectful, so I was not expecting them to actually reach back out. I wouldn’t have accepted a 2nd interview with Xander or Ben. Thank you for giving me insight into the insurance industry.

Group Interview, they are looking for bodies, not necessarily people who have experience. About a 20 minute presentation, typical of insurance group interviews. Lots of promises and potential, not too much on actual day to day operations.
