3Craig,
Apparantly you have not been reading this site. You could be molesting collies and Farmers will hire you. My suggestion, use spell check and brush up on your math & English. Since they don't drug test, smoke some good pot so you'll forget that you're working 65 hours a week chasing your tail. Good luck!!smoking smiley

Probably or that is why they are checking you. You have to be bonded and if keeps you from bonding, you are wasting your time.

Be honest when you complete your background information. I had a few misdemeanors that I had to get court documents on stating that the case has been closed. If you are honest, the licensing department will work with you.

I am in the process of preparing the Background check information for Farmers. I have just entered a credit card settle plan and I am worried that Farmers will decline me. I don't have $750.00 dollars lying around to risk losing.

Don't do it! Farmers will suck the life out of you then dump you in the trash like yesterdays stink garbage! But, yes they do check into your history. Since you are going to driving company vehicles if you are a field rep they want to make sure you do not have a terrible driving record etc. I have allot of debt and they still hired me. I also had no criminal history.

Hey,

I have been asked to do the background form and am wondering what they focus on? With this bad economy I've had some crappy short term jobs I didn't put on my resume, and my credit sucks now. (NO JOB = NO MONEY FOR BILLS these past 4 years). It's a corporate position, not selling insurance....

Am I screwed? What do they look at??

Does anyone have current information on what Farmers uses for their credit checks........ do they look at all three agencies or one specific one? If it is just one, which one is it?

The only agency they check is Transunion. For a free report go to www.annualfreecreditreport.com you get 1 free credit report a year. I hope this helps.

Interviewed for Sales Professional position. They found my resume on one of the databases. They offered to waive the fee if I applied for the background check during the interview. I hadn't decided if I wanted to pursue, but once I started the process at home, PayPal was asking for my cc for $65. I canceled out. Would I then own that personal information and be able to use it for future prospects? Is the company making a % off this transaction?

Farmers has a 3 part program, commission at first, 3yr subsidy plus commission and then straight commission that is a combination of New Business Commissions and Renewal Commissions.

Hello I was wondering if you were offered the job. I have a misdemeanor (petty theft) 25 years ago. I was wondering how this might effect my potential of getting hired.
Thank you

I was in Farmers Corp Division in Northeastern U S for 9 years

Everyone knows if you are a dope head , smoke weed have no self respect . Bad credit and a criminal background that Farmers will hire you to sell insurance .
If you are a sharp college student they will not hire you . If you are a moron college student that gets high and ageees to anything with a dumb look on your face ...they will LOVE you . They purposely look for the lowest scores to hire for agents .
In the corporate part we would make fun of the newest dumb zit face college student that came in .
You have to be slow minded to agree to what they offer .
Here's a good example at State Farm if you sell one auto policy for 900.00 ( average ) for the 6 month term you make 97.00. On average. Respectable company will write 100 policies a month or more . Now you do the math . At Farmers we had a policy called "bird brain 13" if a person would ageee to work for 13.00 an hour and get no commission unless they write 20 policies a month( which never happened except the first month when we agent begs his friends and family to please let him write her ) we knew we had a Dumbass Winner !
It's amazing how stupid those people are .

Farmers will hire anyone . Farmers has a turn over rate of 90 percent . Then once you quit Farmers no other agency will take you seriously . Goodluck

Anyone who is hired at Farmers that requests an adjusters license cannot have a criminal background because they cannot be licensed in Texas which they use as their insurance exam.

As for agents, I am not sure.

I will say as a former employee, a 90% turnover rate is not accurate. They do have a high turnover rate because they do not treat their employees well, but that number is WAY too inflated.

I don't think that is true... as long as the felony doesn't include fraud, etc.,

They asked for prof of my degree on my I9. It isn’t a degree required position but I can’t locate my transcript. I sent my GRE instead. Will this disqualify me since I can’t get another transcript for a couple of weeks

Rob C., were you able to get hired? I have been taken the test and have been granted a provisionary license in Georgia but am concerned that I will have difficulty getting hired. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I have an offer and they did badge issuance. I am supposed to start in 2 weeks in training for a CSR position. Today I got a thing from the background company wanting information on my felony conviction for theft which I disclosed when I filled out background paperwork the conviction is from 2002. I completed probation and made 100% restitution. I have already been granted a waiver in KS for doing CSR by the insurance commissioner and anticipate no problems doing this again. I am concerned now because I gave a notice at my current job. They have already hired my replacement. Are they going to withdraw the offer?

yes they probably will and I would bet they say you cant be bonded. Trust me this will be the best thing you could ever have happen to you is not get a job there. I worked there for 20 years and ended up suing them with a lot of other people in 3 states for OT issues. They have not gotten any better. I sincerely cant encourage you to go to a better company then FIG. I would encourage you to go to All State, State Farm, Liberty Mutual.
