Host said: Do you have any tips to help prepare for an upcoming claims adjuster interview?
Are there common interview questions that come up again and again?
Depending on who you are interviewing with whether it is an HR
rep or the actual manager/supervisor the position is going to be reporting to is going to dictate the questions that you are going to receive, but the most important attribute to a potential new adjuster is their organizational/time management skills, and how well they deal with stress. Come up with solid examples of how you stay organized, how you keep on top of appointments and don't miss deadlines - if you have an example of when you missed a deadline and what you learned from the experience so that it doesn't happen again is good - remember that no one is perfect. Real life examples of how you deal with stressful situations - both a positive outcome and maybe once when you didn't deal so well.
I've been a Claims Manager for three years and have probably conducted a few hundred interviews - these are the two areas that I am most interested in the answers regardless of whether it is a seasoned adjuster applying, or a trainee.
