    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group.

    Interview

    General background interview questions were asked. Past work experience and why I wanted to work here. What did i like about working at Farmers. They seemed very dull and straight forward over the phone interview which made me feel nervous and uncomfortable.
