    Easy Interview

    Application

    Interview

    In a room with 3 other people was desperate and took the job. The others left halfway through the presentation. Very unprofessional and did not really explain the position and now realize was lied to.

    Interview

    I kind of gave up on this process after the interview in person. Initially I was called by a recruiter who tried to convince me that a salary well below my expectations was okay. It was fine at the top end of her range but she pressured me to go lower.

    In person was okay with the VP of the department. The person he brought in to do a BDI read from a paper. I didn't like that because she wasn't engaged. If I was going to be interacting with her j wanted a feel for her personality. So that was terrible and a big no for me.

    Insurance Sales Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Meridian, ID

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Combined Insurance (Meridian, ID) in August 2014.

    Interview

    To sum it up, what a joke! A regional recruiter contacted me and set up an interview. The following day the date of the interview was changed. Then later in the day it was changed again. I went to my interview and it seemed more like the regional guy trying to convince me to work there instead of a real interview. He then offered to take me on a ride along so that I could get a feel for how they sell. He chose the time and I rearranged my schedule to accommodate him. 20 minutes before my ride along was scheduled, as I was pulling out of my driveway, the manager called and said that he needed to reschedule the ride along because he needed to meet with his manager. I hesitantly agreed and waited a few days more. So then I show up at the office at the scheduled time and NO ONE WAS THERE! The office was locked and the lights were off. I try calling the guy and he didn't answer. I email him on my phone, no reply. I wait for 25 minutes or so and then leave. I then tried to call the regional recruiter who was in a meeting, he calls me back and tells me that the manager that I was supposed to meet with says that he was there the whole time and that I never showed up. He then relays that he believes my story as similar issues have arisen at this particular office. A few hours after this call I receive an email from the manager (who claimed that he was there the whole time) apologizing for not being there (which he told corporate that he was) asking to reschedule for the fourth time in 2 interview/meetings. I declined. Do not apply to this company. It is a farce, they lack organization and professionalism at a local level and jerk you around with no regard to your time or effort.

    Insurance Sales Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bedford, NH
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Combined Insurance (Bedford, NH) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Started off as a group interview where the recruiter started talking about benefits and pay before even individually interviewing us to see if we were qualified. After that, we had one on one "interviews" but it was more so him asking him what we thought about the presentation, if we had any questions about it or the job, and when we could start.

    Beware though, you have to spend $200 on a software to study for your license to sell insurance and then they send you to Chicago to school to train before you can become an agent.

    The recruiter did let me shadow an agent first to see what it was like in the field.

    Reasons for Declining

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Combined Insurance (Boston, MA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    They will hire anyone because they use you to build leads. They ask if you have any experience which is pointless because they will hire anyone to make money of your leads family friends and people you convinced need this. They know you will not make a living at this and will eventually be able to steal your accounts for themselves.

    Interview Questions
