I worked at Swett & Crawford full-time
Lots of cohesiveness on teams, lots of support in learning the role. Clearly defined roles and work responsibility. People all trying to get the same thing done, so lots of support for overall success.
You really are just a cog in a wheel of a giant machine, and you don't actually matter that much in the overall big picture.
Advice to Management
Giving people ownership of process from start to finish would be ideal and make it feel like the work each individual does actually holds weight and brings value to the overall success of the wholesaler brokerage.
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Swett & Crawford (Scottsdale, AZ) in August 2014.
I applied online, a few days later received a phone call from someone in the Seattle office. I went through a 5 minute phone interview and was advised my information would be forwarded to the Scottsdale office. The following business day I received a call from the Scottsdale office asking when I was availabe for an in person interview. I scheduled the interview and received an email confirmation. I arrived about 20 minutes early to my interview and we jumped right in. They had me fill out a paper job application that basically matched everything I filled out on glassdoor.com. Once I was finished I went to the VPs office and we discussed my current positions and I was asked why I wanted to leave my current job and to tell more about myself. We then discussed the company and the position and the whole interview with the VP maybe took 15 minutes. I was then introduced to another Broker and he and I basically discussed the exact same things, had a few laughs about our rival colleges, and then I was advised I would receive a phone call later and I went home.
