    Marketing Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Federated Insurance (Denver, CO) in April 2014.

    Interview

    They have a terribly long and drawn out interview process where they interview you about 6 times including including an interview of you and your spouse in your house. It's really a weird experience where they want you to swear loyalty to them. They also don't like if your spouse has a good career. They want stay at home spouses like its the 1950's. I got the job but it was a terrible experience

    Marketing Representative Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Federated Insurance in March 2014.

    Interview

    I only went through the very beginning of their hiring process. Their district manager found my resume online and contacted me about the position. After the initial phone call, which was really more of an information session than an interview, he had me take a very lengthy personality test. The results came back favorable and an interview was scheduled with the district and regional managers. Again, this was somewhat informational. We discussed my background and what I was looking for. I also found out that this was essentially the first of 9 interviews they do before hiring someone. The last 3 interviews they conduct with you and your spouse, something I found quite odd. The managers I had contact with were both very personable, professional, and I could tell they genuinely cared about their employees. However, I found their hiring process to be somewhat overbearing and intrusive which highlights that they are looking for an extremely specific kind of person to go to work for them.

    Systems Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Owatonna, MN
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Federated Insurance (Owatonna, MN) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview, then went to Owatonna for 2 tests, 2 interviews, then 2 more interviews if you pass the tests. A difficult process, but they know who they want. Unfortunately I hadn't done any math for a while, so I didn't do well enough on the tests. It would be best to prepare yourself and brush up on your Algebra.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Federated Insurance.

    Interview

    Intense and long interview process. They know the candidate they want and will drill you down to find out if you fit that mold. Can be intimidating at first, but if you realize they know what works and are trying to find that person, its actually kind of eye opening, you realize things about yourself you may have not previously known

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Owatonna, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Federated Insurance (Owatonna, MN).

    Interview

    I got to the headquarters and was immediately greeted by one of the HR staff. She brought me to a small room with a booklet of awkwardly laid out questions, and an awkwardly looking answer sheet. She gave me 20 minutes to solve 24 problems that are ridiculous for the position I was applying for. They were very confusing math story problems with only variables. You will read a story problem where variables are listed, and you have to select the correct math equation that shows the math.

    From the HR Lady: "Most people don't finish."

    After completing half of the answers, I received a new set of problems with a 35 minute time limit. It didn't seem too hard. After completing the two tests, an HR rep walked in and said I didn't pass the test, so I couldn't go onto the actual face-to-face interviews. I applied for a software developer, and didn't even get to answer a single question relevant to it.

    The test should have been given prior to this "in house" interview. I would recommend making it an online process.

    Interview Questions

    • Example: "If speed (s) is constant and the percentage of force upon in increases at random (f) what will happen if you multiply the gravitational pull of the moon (m) by s?

      That's the style. You would have to provide the formula.
