You will get a phone interview first, very cut dry and goes by their model, if you have the slightest accent you will not get any further even though they will still waste your time on the phone. This company will only hire native speaking people unless they indicate spanish, not saying that is my language but very disappointed with their interview process. They don't even want to know about you as a person, they just rate you on their own scale.

I just did it and maybe this is because the guy I interviewed with was quite possibly one of the most awkward people I have EVER interviewed with, but it was horrible. His "behavioral questions" were like statements so he was very confusing. I would give him an answer and then I would have to repeat that answer because he couldn't comprehend what I was saying. Awful .

The interview process to work for progressive was long. From start to finish it took 3 months. Assessment, phone interview, second video interview, then background check. After all that do not start for a month an a half. Interview was difficult I had to prepare for it but with preparation I believe that helped me get the job.

Interview process makes you think you're working for a different kind of company. In reality you're not. Only if you're liked will you want to stay here.

Disappointed about Progressive wasting my time. Spending valuable time taking 2 one hour long assessments and 45 minutes phone interview is simply ridiculous. Nicole Peterman was not sincere in her interaction with me, in fact, the interviewer felt not engaged. Even though I have 19 years experience in management, extensive knowledge of Insurance laws and regulations, and excellent customer service skills, I knew my chances to have a chance to talk with a recruiter face to face vanished after talking to her. I even asked Nicole for weak or strong points during my interview to at least have a learning experience out of this tedious process, however, I never received any answer whatsoever. I will never recommend to any of my friends to apply with Progressive.

The interview process was great! They provided information for preparation of the interview. I didn’t feel intimidated and I found out I got the position a week later!

The interview process does not really capture a candidates true worth in my opinion. If you are great at bsing your answers during the interview that's who they really want.

If your application is chosen you then proceed to the assessment part which is completed online, if you pass that they will schedule a phone interview, if that goes well you will begin your background check online. After that they will schedule an in person interview. They do use the star method so make sure you read the sample questions they send you and have some scenarios in mind to use as answers.
