On Tuesday I went in for what I thought was an interview with Farmers Insurance. After getting to the interview, Farmers Insurance informed me that they were trying to recruit me for a Farmers Insurance small business owners position. After noting down as much information as I could I went home to think it over and to discuss it with my husband. I did some research being that I look through the website that farmers provided, and also attempted to contact some of those listed in the same position so that I would get their opinions. I also called a few friends of mine, some of which used to work for Farmers Insurance. Now the friends of mine who have had previous experience with Farmers told me not to take this offer. The few who have no experience with Farmers were overly excited about the opportunity and are more than willing to back me regardless of my decision. I just want to make sure that I'm looking at this from all angles, some that I might see and some that I might not. This is something that is going to affect my entire family and the life that I could potentially provide for them. If there are any one out there who have previous experience with Farmers Insurance or (more specifically) the opportunity that has been given to me please leave me some comments letting me know about your experience so that I may be able to have more clarity when coming to the conclusion that would best fit my family.
It sounds like you already have your answer. Your friends who have worked at/dealt with Farmer's Insurance before are obviously looking out for you when they tell you not to take the offer. I would take their advice over anyone who hasn't worked there or a bunch of strangers on the internet (no matter how well meaning we may be.) It may feel tempting to take the offer, especially if they're trying to suck you in with promises of a great salary etc., but it's far better to wait for something that doesn't give you weird vibes like this than to go for something that might come back to bite you later. Take care.
