    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Philadelphia Insurance Companies in June 2017.

    Interview

    I received a referral for the position and sent my resume to the branch manager. Received a call from him that lasted approximately 30 minutes and was half phone screen/half conversation about the role.

    We scheduled a one-on-one interview for about a week later that was very laid back and conversational. Received a call a couple days later saying I was moving on to the final round and would be interviewing with 3 people, including the branch manager. This interview was a little tougher but everyone was very pleasant.

    Got a call a week later with an offer pending a drug test and background check. Overall it was a pretty easygoing process and everyone was very nice. Can't wait to start!

    Contact Center Supervisor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Philadelphia Insurance Companies (Leawood, KS) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I did four interviews. Two by phone, one was with HR and another with a person in the current position. I then had two face to face interviews. The first with a VP and a person in the current position about to leave, and the next with a member of HR and someone new in the position. It has now been 5 weeks and absolutely no response from the company. I reached out to three different HR contacts and not a single one has responded. If this is how they treat their employees, I'd turn down the position without any hesitation.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Philadelphia Insurance Companies in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted quickly. Interview process was typical nothing out of the ordinary. I had 1 general interview with HR and 2 with the AVP (1 telephonic and 1 video conference). You have to follow up with them to get updates on the interview process.

    Offer made for very low pay not close to market value. They seek multiple years of experience 10+ but pay slightly above entry level. They refuse to negotiate on offer, I find this amusing, especially since one of the main components of being a claims specialist is to be a good negotiator.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Philadelphia Insurance Companies (Dublin, OH) in June 2016.

    Interview

    There was a phone interview and 1 face to face. I had applied to this position in April. I was called by an HR member in June to schedule a phone interview then was called the next day to have a face to face the next week. The face to face was with a manager, I thought it went well and was told I'd be contacted back with a decision, well that was 3 weeks ago and no call has been made back to me by the company Mgr or the HR rep. I find that pretty unprofessional and rude, especially when I was told I would be contacted with a decision.
