I have been working at Victor O Schinnerer Company full-time (Less than a year)
Provides a great introduction to the world of insurance and prepares you for managing workflow in other realms of the industry.
There are some politics within the office and definitely some rights of passage that one must endure. Some confusion early on when I started that made me unclear as to what my role was within the department. Email and log-on access was complicated early on.
Advice to Management
Set a firm foundation for people that are not only new to the company but also new to the industry, so they can adapt to the job functions more fluidly instead of completely relying on the sink-or-swim method (which works in some instances but not in others).
I applied in-person. I interviewed at Victor O Schinnerer Company (Chevy Chase, MD) in August 2015.
First was the phone interview, which was pretty standard and about 2 or so weeks after I was contacted for an in-person interview. Why The interview process was comfortable with the senior associate that I interviewed with face-to-face. The conversation seamlessly transferred from "get-to-know-you" banter into the actual questioning portion. After completing the interview I was asked to interview with another senior associate that works in a different department. This second interview was a bit more informal and informational about the position (as she had been with the company way longer than her peer). Again, comfortable atmosphere and no negative comments about the process.
