    Safety Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process was interesting. I applied online and then was scheduled for a video interview. The first interview went fine and then I had another video interview with the head safety consultant out of Wisconsin. I received an e-mail the next week saying I didn't get the job. In my opinion, I was already making too much money and the company couldn't offer me more. The position seemed like a lot of hours and I couldn't get a direct answer on how many hours a week I would work. The position was for the Southern California area and I would be the only risk rep for that area (limited support). I didn't get an offer, but probably would have turned it down due to the amount of hours and amount of unknowns.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sentry.

    Interview

    Online "record responses" due within 48 hours of you applying. Questions were situational and aimed at a new college graduate, not a seasoned producer. Didn't get questions about how my experience would be perfect for the job. Open any HR101 book and look up chapter for questions to ask applicants.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sentry.

    Interview

    Very extensive. In person with the manager. Interview with HR. Take a sales personality test. If you pass (many do not). A phone interview with the regional manager. They then fly you to Stevens Point for an in persons with the same regional manager and then a regional manager from a different region. At least that's how it was back in 2010 when I did it.

    Interview Questions

    • They are really trying to find out if you will work hard.( Because if you get the job you will have to work really hard to make it). And that if you believe the customer comes first. The test and company culture really wants you to put the customer first. But pricing does not put the customer first. All they care about is increasing the renewal premiums year after year.   Answer Question

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sentry (Davenport, IA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Disgustingly direspectful. The female besides the man didnt shake my hand or introduce herself. They both asked me redundant protocol questions. Within 5 seconds after the interview they talked about their texts. Horribly inappropriate.
