    I worked at Federated Insurance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great training program for those without any insurance experience.

    Cons

    Company is run like the Government with very little room for growth and employees are not rewarded for work product or creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees to do their job and make sure to reward the ones who do a great job and don't be afraid to move on from employees who aren't carrying their weight.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Federated Insurance.

    Interview

    Very long interview process. Was initially given a phone interview, then in person interview consisting of mostly behavioral questions, then a shadowing day in the office lasting 7 hours. Still have more interviews to go.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic.
      When were you able to over come a challenge in the workplace?
      Why did you choose the degree you have?
      When were you forced to make a difficult decision?
