How do you handle a larger than average workload?
The interviewer wants to be assured that you can handle the workload required of you as a claims adjuster and that you will not become overwhelmed if/when workloads unexpectedly increase. When workloads increase, stress levels do too. How do you react?

Rachelle's Answer #1
"When I have a large workload on my plate, I do not stress over the tasks that are in front of me. Rather, I make a simple plan of which tasks are a high priority and which tasks are a lower priority. The higher priority tasks, I complete first. Through this system, I can focus on my tasks individually, rather than stress out by the multitude of tasks ahead of me."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Here are some suggestions on how to handle a large workload:

- List your tasks and prioritize them
- Think of which functions add to the company's bottom line, and start there (Closest to the money!)
- Exhale. Relax for a minute and collect yourself
- Organize your tasks by which ones you can complete independently and which ones you need help with
- Take sufficient breaks, so you do not exhaust yourself
- Communicate your struggles with your leadership or team"

Are you comfortable contacting physicians regarding claims involving injuries?
The interviewer would like to know if you bring experience with engaging physicians in your claims. As a claims adjuster, it is essential to be professional and organized as you will be required to communicate with other professionals such as physicians. Talk to the interviewer about a time where you had to work directly with a doctor on a claim.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"Just last week I was asked to research a claim which called for a conversation with the physician. I was able to simply relay the information to him, and he confirmed and denied any parts of the claim. I find that with physicians, you need to be fast paced and concise in your communication as they are swamped."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I have not worked at this level, as of yet, however; I am confident in my abilities to speak with physicians concisely and professionally. I would gladly accept any additional training in this area from your senior adjusters. I come willing to learn and improve!"

Rachelle's Answer #1
"My customer and client relationships are best described as open and honest. I believe that the more upfront and transparent you are with your clients, the more likely they are to return. I most definitely value my clients and am sure to nurture those relationships as much as possible."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"As I am newer to my career as a claims adjuster, I have only had a handful of clients, so I spend a lot of time working with them. Because of my level of focus and support, I get along very well with them."
Anonymous Answer
