    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Horace Mann (Springfield, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Several years ago I applied for a position with Horace Mann. I was interviewed but did not get the job. Subsequently they have called me, and asked me to apply for two job openings (mind you, I did not plan on applying for either job, I only did because they asked me to apply). I was interviewed and lead to believe that I was going to get the last job, and then still was not hired. This has happened twice, so shame on me for falling for their tactics a second time. I don't know why a company would do this to a person. It's mean, and unjustified, and actually is a form of harassment.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Horace Mann (Springfield, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview, then in person one on one interview, and final interview was a PowerPoint presentation and panel interview. Very detailed and the HR rep covers benefits and perks before being selected for a position so you have a good understanding of what the company offers.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Open to salary negotiations but it was a very small bump. They are open about salary potential in the interview process

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Horace Mann (Springfield, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    They canceled once last minute bc a manager was not available. Other than that interview was pleasant and informal. The interviewing managers explained the culture of the company to be friendly and that they were drama free and seeking an individual that was the same.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Horace Mann (Springfield, IL) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The first interview was conducted over the phone with an in-house recruiter. It was fairly relaxed and she was very pleasant. I was invited to a 2nd interview a few days later. During this interview I met with an accounting supervisor and a manager. They asked me the basic interview questions plus questions about the processes I would use. Overall, not a good position for an aspiring CPA.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Horace Mann (Springfield, IL) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I was called at 5PM and offered asked to come in at 9AM the next day to interview, so they gave very little time to prepare. The 9AM interview was a recruiter screening, and they asked me to come back later in the day to interview with the hiring manager. The interview itself was fairly straightforward: I met some of the engineers and they asked engineering related questions concerning database design and rapid development techniques. They gave me one programming problem to work out on paper, but it was also pretty easy. The interview went well, but it would have gone much better if I had been more prepared.

    Interview

    I applied for the position in November. I was invited for an interview in February. I was invited for a face to face interview with an HR Recruiter. After my interview with HR, they asked me if I could go ahead and have my second interview with a Customer Care Manager right then. Of course I agreed. I interviewed with the manager immediately. I was asked to sit with a representative and listen to incoming phone calls. After listening, the manager asked me if I had any questions and if I thought I could handle the job. The following week I received an offer to begin work in two weeks.
