    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group (Lynnwood, WA).

    Interview

    I moved up to Washington State after completing my bachelor's degree and needed to get on the job grind quick, so I quick applied to over 50 companies on CareerBuilder in hopes for some possible employment. To my surprise, I was receiving countless phone calls, emails, and voicemails regarding possible positions for my "excellent" resume. Farmers got me first or second, so I decided to try my luck. One of the business consultants called me in for an interview for what I didnt even know I would be interviewing for at the time, so I was a bit on edge. Turns out it was to be an entry level agent and start my own business. Yeah right. They were going to make me fork out all this money to get licensed and said I needed to sell under the gun pretty much 40 car insurance and 4 housing insurance before I even received any sort of base pay as to not "embarass the company" if I were to be out on the payroll. Had a second interview with the district manager who just boasted Farmers numbers and how competitive they are. Overall negative experience and not college grad friendly as was the only reason I took the chance.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the preliminary interview is just talking about yourself and your resume to find out if you are a good fit for an agent position.

      Second interview:
      Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

      How will you benefit Farmers if you are hired?

      What is your greateat weakness?

      A difficult situation you had to manage?

      Why should we choose you?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I was not looking for a sales gig. Need to eatablish a steady pay before I can even think about going the agent route.
