If you prefer, you can apply through Progressive's hiring website. If you choose to apply through their site instead of ours, don't forget to come back and tell us about it so we can log the application for you. You might not realize it, but keeping an accurate record of where and when you applied is one of the most important things you can do when it comes to having a successful job search. And we'll help you do it.
For this application guide, we applied for a position as an Inside Sales Representative. Though the application is very similar for all jobs at Progressive, it's possible that your experience may vary from ours a little bit depending on the position that you are applying for.
Before you can apply for a job at Progressive, you will need to create an account on their hiring site. To register, you will need to provide a username, password, and your email address.
Once your account is created, you will have the opportunity to upload your resume. Uploading your resume is optional at this point, but doing so can save you a lot of time. If you upload your resume, Progressive will read through it and use the information it finds to fill in many of the application fields for you. Of course, you will want to check behind it to make sure that it places the right information in all of the right places. While their program worked perfectly for us, it's always that it could make a mistake. So just make sure that you double check.
Once your resume is uploaded (or not), you will need to provide some personal information including your name, address, phone number, email address, languages spoken, education, and work history. Before you begin the application, make sure that you have accurate employment and education dates on hand. Sometimes our memory isn't as good as we think it is, so taking the time to verify the dates might be a good idea.
After your personal information is entered, you will need to fill out a brief questionnaire. This questionnaire includes questions about your level of experience, your salary expectations, scheduling preferences. There are no trick questions here, so read each question carefully and answer honestly.
Next, you will have the opportunity to attach some files including your resume and cover letter. Make sure that you take some time to customize each document for the position that you are applying for. Not only will customizing the documents help you demonstrate a legitimate interest in the position, it will also give you an opportunity to explain exactly how your previous experiences have prepared you for the position that you are applying for.
