    Anonymous Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kemper.

    Interview

    I am normally not one to post reviews after interviews as every person and company is different in how they like to conduct these processes but I feel job prospects need to hear the following story about Kemper.

    I went through a completely normal 3 step interview process: hr phone, hiring manager phone, in-person with multiple people. Around 2 weeks later I was offered a job. We negotiated and I verbally accepted. I was told that I should have a completed background and offer letter within 3-4 business days. If I wanted I could put in my 2 weeks notice, which I declined to do until receiving the letter.

    3-4 business days came and went... Then 3-4 weeks came and went (while constantly talking with the recruiter) with no explanation of what was happening. I've heard of these things happening so that isn't what was in such poor taste. Essentially, I knew through several channels a person in the department and after a month we got in touch. This person made me aware that the department never had an original sign off to even hire for the position. So I was hired on, negotiated, and told to quit my job over a position that was posted but never even had the ability to be hired for. What a mess.

    I don't know where this process went wrong. Whether it was HR, the department, or something else (hiring freeze, etc). I'm also sure this isn't a reflection of the entire company as I have been told it is a great place to work. However, anyone in the process with Kemper should be aware.

    Finance Leadership Development Program Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kemper (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The phone interview was a walk through your resume, the interviewer didn't seem very interested in anything besides asking you about past experience. Did the onsite interview and instantly had a bad feeling when I entered the office, there was hardly anyone there and there just didn't seem to be any energy from the people interviewing me. I was interviewed by two assistant FP&A VPs, a VP of finance, and their director of strategic planning. First one didn't even ask me about myself, just wanted to know what questions I had about the program. The others were marginally interested in getting to know me, but I didn't get a very good impression from the whole process, just seemed like a depressing place to work. If I was offered the position I very likely would have turned it down.

    Claims Consultant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kemper (New York, NY).

    Interview

    phone interview about 40 minutes caught me offguard. I thought it would be a short HR interview over the phone but the HR person spent 40 minutes pre-qualifying me for the job, a job entailing management of bad faith litigation. I was caught off guard by the sheer number of questions. I was told it would be a week before I heard - they must not have liked me two days later I got a no thank you email.

    Claims Adjuster Trainee Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kemper (Charlotte, NC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Different experience but positive overall. I applied through an online recruiter. Had a very quick phone screen. Maybe 5-7 minutes. Moved on to the next step where I attended an open house. It seemed like they were either understaffed or just running way behind, as my interview started over a hour past the time we agreed on. Personally, this didn't bother me and I feel helped, as I was interviewed by a manager who stepped in to assist. We ended up having a GREAT conversation and was very relaxed. I think we talked for a hour.

    I was extended an offer a week later. And to my surprise, not for a trainee position, but Property Adjuster 1.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kemper (Charlotte, NC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was an open house function and soft refreshments were served. The applicants met in a meeting room and waited to be called for the formal interview. It was very relaxing and staff was very friendly. A staff from Human Resources came into the conference room while we were waiting and described the goals of the company. I had the luxury of being asked to stay for a second interview.
