I have been working at Berkshire Hathaway full-time (More than 10 years)
I like the corporate atmosphere without being harsh. Professional and ethical standards guide the business. Individual offices have strong leadership. Agents are exposed to new ideas and practices in the business on a global level. Change of leadership has been very positive in my current office.
Poor communication between agents within the office. Subtle attitudes of discrimination , specially, from the Asian agents who prefer to work with their own.
Advice to Management
Hire Brokers who have rounded experience in all spheres. Personal, ethical, commercial, business, and life experiences. Leadership qualities are very important. Agents should be able to grow on all levels and have inclusive attitudes. There should be a reward system to recognize humanistic and leadership qualities. Accountability for over all performance.
I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Berkshire Hathaway (Sacramento, CA) in December 2017.
Before the interview, you are to complete a 12 min Wonderlic test. The interview is the standard STAR behavioral questions such as "Tell us about yourself....Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years......If you're in [put in problem scenario], how do you resolve the situation...etc."
