Do you work at Progressive Insurance? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview?

Any advice for someone trying to get in?

r2d2 33594 in Valrico, Florida said: reply to this post. i can share some tips

During the hiring process I was told that I would have to sign a contract that ensures I remain with the company for at least a year because the training is extensive and they don't want to train people who will leave any sooner than that. Does anyone who has worked for Progressive have any insight on this? I may have a job lined up this summer that pays more so I would rather not be contractually obligated for a year in addition to the four months of training...

I don't know of any case law that allows a company to make an employee keep a job. 1) if flies in the face of "right to work" laws (the same laws that allow an employer to fire an employee at any time) and 2) that is called slavery (or being indentured).

It's simply not enforceable. if you really wanted to be a butt head... ask them to sign the same type of document stating that they can't fire you for a year. :) They can't have their cake and eat it too.

Progressive is simply trying to make people think they have to work there and cannot quit. It's shady and speaks for the company mentality at Progressive. When you quit some idiot HR person may mention that portion of the contract. Just tell them to do whatever they want. If they do mention it, it's just them being on a power trip.

I'm really wondering what they say is going to happen if you do quit before a year. I wonder if it even states what their options are. I'd not be surprised if they left that out as then it's almost like a threat.

Does anyone know if the Pricing Analyst role is Exempt or Non Exempt? Is there schedule flexibility or the ability to occasionally work from home?

Thanks!

I have an interview there this Wednesday. I've been trying to review as many behavioral questions as possible to prepare, but I'm still nervous. I'm going to go in as confident as possible, but I'm dreading if they asking me a question that I completely didn't have time to review.

Sashie, I think you will do very well at the interview. Regardless of the questions, behavior answers should work in many different situations. Some interviewers are good... But keep in mind some good points about yourself and don't forget to mention them. Part of the interview is to answer their questions but part of it is to sell yourself. Picture yourself in the job.

that's cool if you don't need help, but don't insult others that need assistance.AND my posting never said you had to pay me to get a job, I charge a fee to write resumes and cover letters and do mock interviews. If you don't need the service, I will just make sure you get an interview, if you get the job and I get my commission then I split a portion of it. Are you still seeking a job? You are spending too much time hating on me. Worry about yourself more and me less, my posting has nothing to do with you. If you are not interested just don't read it. thanks to you, 8 people have contacted me today, so I appreciate the advertising.

Progressive pays less to bilingual emp?? in Sacramento, California

21 months ago

I had applied for progressive-bilingual thinking that it would be a higher pay compared to regular customer service representative. The bilingual position goes from $13 to $15/hr; however there is a posting for customer service in the same call center and they start from 13.50 to $16.50??!
Can someone explain me if that seems right, everyone I have asked told me yet are paying more to bilingual employees..,,but this just seems outrageous!

Does anyone know if a DWI conviction (misdemeanor) from 5 years ago would disqualify me from a customer service position at Progressive. The application didn't ask about criminal background but they do run a background check and it will come up. I've been in recovery from alcohol problems the last 3 years.

So, as we determine if you're right for Progressive, we ask that you determine if Progressive is right for you. Approach the process as a two-way exchange in which we can learn about each other and evaluate if we’re a good fit. www.progressive.com/jobs/applying-interviewing/

-because, Progressive is a call center in a lot of their positions. People who don't show good job stability worry the company. A lot of people that get hired here get bored with the same call after call, and eventually quit. Progressive wants to make sure they hire people that already show they can have no problem doing the same thing over and over again for months/years.

I have applied several times and they always tell me to go away. I fit what they ask for 110%....I guess I need 150%.

Sashie don't be concerned because you'll be interviewed by a call center lifer who worked the front counter at McDonalds before they became a manager here at Progressive.

I have a phone interview coming up and really don't know if they will ask but I worked at Farmer's as a claims adjuster for almost 5 months. However after very extensive and intense training , etc. I scored an 81% vs an 85% for Farmer's and they let me go although I had approx. 75 claims and was doing very well. How should I explain this to progressive? I fear they won't hire me as a trainee if I tell them just that but I could be wrong. I learned an immense amt in the training spanning 13 weeks. Can somebody please shed some light on if they would ask or what I should say? I like claims a lot and really want this.

You will likely not be asked. We dont kmow anything about other insurance company training processes so wouldnt know how to rate the information.
You might be asked why you left your prior job. I wouldnt say it was because of a test score.

I got a Face to Face interview to be scheduled and did the phone interview for claims today. I have just filled out the info for background check. How long do those take? I have been in various background checks regarding all my employment roles and sometimes it seems they take forever. Any advice for my face to face interview?

Does anybody know if they complete the background check before they schedule the face to face? I am lost in all this as there is no number to reach out to the recruiter or HR. I have never had it done that way.
