    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been at Farmers for more than a decade. The changes inside the company during that time have been astounding . I really feel our leadership understands what they need to do to attract and keep talent in this rapidly changing marketplace. They've relaxed the dress code, improved technology, reworked benefits and really focused on diversity and inclusion efforts at all levels of the company. I've never really felt the desire to leave (which I had at both previous employers). Things I like:
    - I'm extremely challenged in my role.
    - I feel my talents are being used to the fullest extent.
    - I feel valued.
    - I got a lot of time off (I actually struggle to use the 30 days I receive each year).
    - I get to work at home a lot.
    - I'm given a lot of autonomy in my role.
    - I'm given opportunity.
    - I get to support my community and my favorite charities on behalf of Farmers.
    - I feel fairly compensated.

    Cons

    - Work/life balance can be a little off. Sometimes I ask, "what balance?"
    - Benefits are decent. Probably could be better. My litmus test is that I perceive my husband's employer-provided benefits better than what I receive.
    - Offices outside of Home Office (Los Angeles) have less opportunity than Home Office, especially in my business unit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to transform the company for the better.

    Claims Adjuster Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group.

    Interview

    1. Application
    2. Phone interview
    3. Assessments emailed to you
    4. In-person Interview
    5. Call with job offer

    I applied online at the Farmers website on a Monday and got an email back about a phone interview less than a week later. Phone interview was about 30 minutes long and consisted of speaking about the position, salary, start date, and etc. On that call, there was probably about 5-7 behavioral questions so just be ready for examples. Once you pass that, they will schedule an in-person interview and also send you out some assessments to complete. Pretty easy typing test (tho I type a lot at my current job) along with a personality assessment and quick test that basically just verifies that you can read text and follow directions.

    The in-person interview started with about 4 of us waiting out in the lobby. They brought us back to a room and had us introduce ourselves and they went over the job that we were applying for while we were all in there. This is much different than what I have been use to but I really did like that since it gave us time to ask questions. After that, each of us were assigned to 2 people who were conducting the interview and then you were put in an office with them.

    The interview was very laid back which I enjoyed. I talked about my current position and was asked behavioral questions. Again, it's super important to have these ready. The interview lasted about 20 minutes and then I was walked back to the front. I was told that I would hear something in a week. I was super nervous when I left because they didn't have me shadow anyone, but turns out I was worried for no reason. I got a call 3 days later stating that I got the job.
