    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group (Arlington, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First you are called for a phone interview, a week later if you passed the phone interview you are sent a email for a in person interview. The in person Interview process consists of all behavioral questions. I answered all the STAR questions using real situations that i experienced. I thought i did really good and was told they would make a decision within 1-2 weeks, however i received the generic "we found a better fit candidate" email 2 days later.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Process was rather quick than usual - a phone interview with the hiring manager, then an onsite to meet with the leadership on the team. Questions varied from prior experiences, operating procedures, and finally some technical questions. The people with whom I met spanned leadership through most of the business unit.

    Liability Claims Representative Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group (Arlington, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Great initial contact with California recruiter. He was very informative, prompt and patient. I was selected for the mass interview (10 candidates) 6 of them did not make it to the 2nd interview. First interview (3 interviewers) consisted of behavioral situations in previous workplaces. After surviving the 1st round, desk observation was the next step (sitting with representatives to get a feel of everyday job). Required to write an essay about what would be challenging to you and what you plan to do to overcome the obstacle. 2nd interview was a bit intense. Didn't really care for the management selected to interview me. Both interviewers were rather rude and unprofessional.

    Liability Claims Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    This is the MOST UNPROFESSIONAL GROUP OF MANAGEMENT I have ever dealt with !!!!!!!!!
    First of all, just on the initial phone interview and questionnaire set up, they did not email the questionnaire that they said they would email me. I passed the first face-to-face interview. On the second interview, they will have you sit with a Liability Claims Representative so that you can observe how they do things there. The San Jose (California) Claims Adjusters are sitting so close to each other in 2 rows that you can hear all of them talking at the same time. REALLY POOR SET UP !!!!!!!!! It would make me feel like a rat in a cage working there. Then, when it was time for my second face-to-face interview with the management, they were NOT ON TIME and had me wait for more than half an hour. SO UNPROFESSIONAL AND INCONSIDERATE !!!!!!!!!!! It seems like the supervisor and manager who interviewed me for the second face-to-face interview were having a power trip with their facial expressions and tone. I can just imagine how hellish it would have been if I ended up working there !!!!!!!!!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call from a recruiter. We arranged a phone interview and I was sent a 3 part test, along with a personality assessment to complete. The recruiter passed my information along to the hiring team in San Diego, who called a few days later. An interview was set for 2 weeks later. I attended a panel interview with 3 representatives, who asked a few behavioral questions. I was sent home (without shadowing a current employer, which worried me). A week later, they called and offered me the position. The interviewers were friendly, professional and great at keeping me updated.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group (Caledonia, MI) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I first had a phone interview that was solely behavioral based questions. They then invited me in for a realistic job preview interview. There were 7 interviewees, we all sat in a conference room with 3 department supervisors and the women from talent acquisition. They described the job in great detail and told us a lot about the company. We then went out and met one on one with an employee that would answer any questions we had and showed us a little about the job. After that, we met back up as a group in the conference room and the supervisors took people out for a one on one short interview. It was very laid back and easy going. I dont start for another two weeks but i can already tell this is the place i want to be!!
