    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The initial contact was really easy. The rep contacted me via email and then progressed to a phone interview that let to a 1:1 interview. It didn't feel very open ended with the usual "We'll call you if interested" sort of feel, I was always told exactly what the next step was and when I would be contacted.

    Claims Trainee - Liability Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online July 26. I took Pre-Employement Assessment and Omnia Profile assessment online on August 8. The online assessments took two hours total for both. I completed telephone interview on August 25. The telephone interview lasted 30 minutes. After the telephone interview the recruiter sounded upbeat and told me that I did well. She said that she would be moving me along to the next step which was an in-person panel interview at the local office with the Branch Manager and two supervisors. She told me to expect a call or email within the next two to three days to schedule the appointment. She even told me to expect an offer on the higher end of the pay scale for the position because of my experience. The recruiter brought up the salary topic, not me. Three days later my Farmers MyJob page submission status was changed to "No longer under consideration". I also received a generic rejection email. If that's how they yank around their applicants I can only imagine how the company handles their employees or worse, their customers! The questions are only difficult if you have zero work experience resolving issues with difficult customers and/or co-workers and finding solutions to those issues.

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Farmers Insurance Group in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my Resume on line. I have years of sales experience in the OM (Original Manufacturing Environment. So why I was called for this line of work was a mystery to me. However, I decided to continue with the interview 1.) Out of curiosity 2.) to see what the requirements were going to be fr this position.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult was did I think was this a position that I would be interested in. The difficulty with that as I told them is I am still not clear why you think this a position for me to begin with and additionally I know nothing about insurance except my personal policies. And do you not need to go to school or something to sell insurance?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I do not feel that this is position that matches my back ground at all. Additionally I really want an office clerical position and not a inside or outside sales position.

    Found a posting on local College job-board posting. Called them directly at the office and got an in person interview after a few days. Very nice people to work with.
