    Interview

    It was pretty laid back. I had a few rounds of one on one interviews with the people I was going to be working with. I was nervous going in but they were all welcoming and supportive. Working with the human resources department was a bit of a struggle but was ok in the end.

    Senior Technical Administrator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FBL Financial (West Des Moines, IA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online on the FBL/Farm Bureau Careers website. Received a call from Human Resources about a week later and scheduled an interview to take place the week after the phone call. The interview was really two interviews the same day. The first interview was with the Human Resources representative, where my resume and job application were reviewed. The second interview was with the hiring manager and another Technical Administrator from his department. My impression was the hiring manager's director usually sat in on this interview too, but he wasn't available that day. The second interview consisted of technical questions related to my prior positions, including platforms, systems applications, and other technical skills. The interviews took place in late April 2015 and the total time was about 2 hours.
