Company Updates

  • We recently hosted panel discussions in our offices for National Veterans & Military Families Month, welcoming employee veterans and guests from Joint Base Lewis-McChord and Fairchild Air Force Bases. Our panelists spoke about the challenges of transitioning from the military to a corporate job, and how the skills they honed in the military – leadership, critical thinking and emotional intelligence, among others – shaped who they are today. It was a great discussion, and a chance to discover how many of our colleagues have previous military experience or family connections.

  • A big thank you to our amazing employee volunteers, who visited Rising Star, Bailey Gatzert and Lidgerwood elementary schools in Seattle and Spokane to teach local students what they can do to be mentally and physically prepared to handle an emergency. In partnership with the American Red Cross, our team shared info and tools to help students keep themselves and their families safe during an earthquake, house fire or storm.

    Auto Liability Claims Adjuster Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lynnwood, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PEMCO Insurance (Lynnwood, WA) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Third party recruiter did the initial hiring process. Very intensive. Phone interview with recruiter, background and credit checks. Required 5 references, 3 had to be prior managers. And they did call them before moving forward. Then in person interview with two supervisors. Standard star questions and situational as well as specifically about the role.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you had conflict with a manager and how did you handle it?   Answer Question
