I have had a couple interviews for insurance auto adjuster/appraiser jobs with some large insurance companies and I run out of questions to ask.

Of course pay is off limits until an offer is made.
One thing that seems to be the norm is that they will talk your ear off and basically answer most of your questions without you having a chance to ask!

Some questions that I haven't been informed the answers of before I get to ask are:
1. Of the past 5 years, how many times has this position been assigned to an out of state CAT (catastrophe) assignment?
2. Would I be required to get an insurance license to perform these CAT assignments?
3. If so does the company offer training for the license?
4. For these assignments do your adjusters typically get a Texas nonresident P&C license because it is reciprocal in all states?
5. I like to be certain I am doing a good job for my employer. How is performance measured?
6. Since this is a work from home position, are there mandatory meetings to attend? How often?


And of course all the other typical questions if they aren't answered by the interviewer.

I still feel like I need more quality questions to ask for such a position.
What are some great questions to ask for an auto claims adjuster?
Thank You

Don't be an idiot. Talk about compensation - no sense in wasting time.

No sense in that when I know a very specific range these jobs pay, which are all acceptable. Should they ask what my current pay is or what pay I'm looking for then yes.

Hey, if you're fine with a 17% variable, so be it. Why not ask the obvious then:


7. When do I start?
