    Claims Adjuster Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group.

    Interview

    1. Application
    2. Phone interview
    3. Assessments emailed to you
    4. In-person Interview
    5. Call with job offer

    I applied online at the Farmers website on a Monday and got an email back about a phone interview less than a week later. Phone interview was about 30 minutes long and consisted of speaking about the position, salary, start date, and etc. On that call, there was probably about 5-7 behavioral questions so just be ready for examples. Once you pass that, they will schedule an in-person interview and also send you out some assessments to complete. Pretty easy typing test (tho I type a lot at my current job) along with a personality assessment and quick test that basically just verifies that you can read text and follow directions.

    The in-person interview started with about 4 of us waiting out in the lobby. They brought us back to a room and had us introduce ourselves and they went over the job that we were applying for while we were all in there. This is much different than what I have been use to but I really did like that since it gave us time to ask questions. After that, each of us were assigned to 2 people who were conducting the interview and then you were put in an office with them.

    The interview was very laid back which I enjoyed. I talked about my current position and was asked behavioral questions. Again, it's super important to have these ready. The interview lasted about 20 minutes and then I was walked back to the front. I was told that I would hear something in a week. I was super nervous when I left because they didn't have me shadow anyone, but turns out I was worried for no reason. I got a call 3 days later stating that I got the job.

    Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    ad on Craigslist.
    I'm rather perturbed with this guy in Portland. He has an ad on craigslist every week.

    He won't interview anyone with > $1000 in debt collections.

    There are a lot of good quality, ethical people out of work and in debt and he seems to think you deserve a chance if you don't have near perfect credit. How realistic is that in todays economy.

    I'm an independent licensed agent, contracted and appointed with 14 of the world's largest Life insurance companies that sell more life insurance in their sleep than Farmer's does on any given day and they don't care about your credit unless it was as a professional in the finance industry.

    Interview Questions

    • must have less than $1000 in debt collections to qualify.   Answer Question

    Farmers Insurance Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Collins, CO
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group (Fort Collins, CO).

    Interview

    The initial interview conducted by an agent (also serving in a DM role) was informal and more informational on a very general level. --- Upon completing both a background check and skills assessment, I was contacted by an external recruiter hired by Farmers (or the DM...they were related!) - An absolutely unprofessional pr*ck! First question after completing an assignment the day prior via phone was: 'If we were to offer you a job today could you accept/decline upon the offer?' I responded with, 'I could provide an answer by EOD as I would need to discuss with my other half' ---- His response, haven't you already discussed this, does your wife wear the pants in that relationship?'
    Thus I declined the offer

    Reasons for Declining

    Two reasons:
    1) External recruiter employed by firm hostile
    2) No pay until at least 30 days into accepting offer (after passing insurance licensing and actually getting a sale w/ a policy)
