    New Business Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in West Des Moines, IA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at GuideOne Insurance (West Des Moines, IA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I was given an interview opportunity with GuideOne through a staffing agency for a position in their personal lines department. The interview process only consisted of a phone interview, and I had the impression the whole process seemed rushed as if they needed to fill this position quickly. That concerned me a little, but at the time it was the best offer available and was for 40 hours a week.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked about how comfortable I was on the phone. Also, how proficient I was with Microsoft Excel and Outlook.   Answer Question
