I worked at MedAmerica Insurance full-time (More than 8 years)
Good benefits, decent location, free parking. Generally nice co-workers.
Exempt staff works long hours with little to no recognition. The company is not big on promoting from within, so if you don't want to be in the same job forever, don't look here. There used to be a decent bonus but they took that away from everyone except upper management, totally killing morale.
Advice to Management
Get rid of management who play favorites. Stop micro-managing. Develop your employees.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MedAmerica Insurance (Emeryville, CA) in August 2011.
HR asking screening questions, however, not engaged at all and typing the entire time, which I found to be distracting. The call started out ok, but he then went into script mode. It was a sign of inexperience as an interviewer. Questions asked were: What's the difference between selling to a B2B v B2C. How do you convince a customer they should buy from you when they adamently told you they didn't want your services; What is your expereince in deciding where to place print ads; Can you describe a campaign that you've worked on; Where do you see yourself in 3-5 years; What are your core strengths and why should we hire you.
