    I submitted an application; was asked for a phone interview. Two days later had the phone interview which lasted approx 30 mins. Went to in-person interview with two managers for 1 hour. Went over resume and behavioral questions followed by a mock call.

    A few days later was asked to consent to background and drug test. Got the call to accept the offer. The entire process lasted about three weeks and was thorough! This is the best interview that I've ever been to.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co..

    Interview

    We set up a phone interview via email, which was confirmed by the interviewer. Then I did not receive a call. I emailed the recruiter, asking if I should call. No response. I waited a few minutes, called the number on the email signature block, and left a voicemail. I did not receive a return call. Very strange and unprofessional.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I received an email to schedule the interview time. But when I got there, I found a lot of people. That was not actually an interview. Just an info session to introduce their company history and how great it is to be an insurance agent. And most importantly, they provide course to pass the license exam.

    Interview with professional people in a very nice building / part of town. They do not let you know beforehand it is a 1099 position with no salary simply commission and bonuses.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellingham, WA

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. (Bellingham, WA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Lasted a little over an hour. It was more of a sales pitch than an interview. About 30 minutes was them telling me about "oh you can make so much money here, it's all Audis and Motorcycles and whatever you want... my aunt works 20 hours per week and makes $175k a year!" Then they asked me some "actual" interview questions, but they were seemingly pointless as there was an "obvious" answer. They briefly asked about my education and some of my work experience in the past, along with a few open ended questions that theres technically no right answer to, then followed up with telling me, once again, how much money I can make.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co. (Kendall, FL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    It was one of the most structured, professional interviews with a twist! They made me feel as if I had known them forever. They explained to me the interview process and also the follow up, that seemed to be very important to them. I was told I would get a call regardless if I was a potential candidate or not. I have been in 25 plus interviews during my adult life and they all say the same thing. "We will be in contact, and thanks so much for your time", yeah right. They all seem to say the exact same thing and the only person that ever gets a call is the lucky person selected for the job. At least that's what I thought. Because exactly the day Mr. Mitchell said he would call with the results he did. I wasnt selected and was dissappointd to say the least. However I felt compelled to write this review because it's nice to know that there are companies like Colonial Life of South FloridaI who follow through with their commitment to you. I enjoyed the interview so much I wanted the job more than I have ever wanted a job before. The pay was ok, but more importantly I wanted to belong to a team.
