    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Brown & Brown Insurance.

    Interview

    The first thing they do ask you to do is fill out an application once you arrive.
    After they take you into a conference room to interview you.
    From there I spoke to 2 people.
    It was very easy going , and simple. It was more like a conversation than an interview.

The third interview consists of meeting with department heads and regional vice president to determine if you are a good fit for the company.

    I applied through other source. The process took 12+ monthsinterviewed at Brown & Brown Insurance (Houston, TX (US)).

    Interview

    My first meeting with the company was a casual meet and greet because I knew someone who knew someone who worked there. At that time the company did not have a position available for me. They advised that they would hold onto my resume and call as soon as something opened up they would call. About a year later I received a call from the PCL and we met up for lunch. After my initial meeting I was asked into the office to meet with the department manager. Then my final meeting consisted of a knowledge test and then a visit with the person with whom I would be replacing. Within 24 hours I was contacted by the PCL with an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Brown & Brown Insurance in October 2013.

    Interview

    The whole hiring process took several months. I interviewed with every department head. They took their precious time, but I think that since every profit center is independent (for the most part) they wanted to make sure I was a good fit for them.

    I did not negotiate very much, but recieved terms that were agreeable in the first place.
