College Intern
San Jose, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at State Farm in March 2011.

Interview Details – Lengthy process, initially was not hired position but got a call back a couple months later being offered the position in other locations. I declined because State Farm does not provide relocation or housing assistance at all. Overall, the recruiter interviewing me was nice and helpful but he did not provide any feedback as to why I was not initially offered the position.

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at State Farm in January 2012.

Interview Details – I applied through online website. Got an email that requested me to do a skills test (typing). A day later, I received a call from an employee from HR notifying that I passed and will need a phone interview. I would say the interview was basic behaviorial interview with a few questions that require you to demonstrate your problem solving skills. I finished the phone interview and have not heard back for at least a month. I pretty much gave up by then. But randomly after spring break, they said I passed and gave me a contigent offer. I gladly accepted and went through background check/ drug screening. Within a week , I got my official offer and I accepted.
Tip:
Being friendly and corgial is very important for this company. I think this company is looking for someone that will get along with everyone. Try to highlight that you are a nice person.

Interview Question – At one point, they asked a really broad question. So any answer could've been a hit or a miss.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. But I did manage to negotiate a shorter internship

The process took 1 week - interviewed at State Farm in April 2008.

Interview Details – I attended a college job fair where State Farm was present and actively looking for Operation and Sales interns throughout the State. Operation interns required a minimum GPA of 3.0 and Sales interns just required experience. After speaking with the HR rep at the even an appointment was set to take an intelligence/logic test that took about 15 minutes (timed) it was relatively easy if you can solve problems fast. After receiving a call back the next day with good news a phone interview was done, took about 30 minutes with easy behavioral questions dealing with sales. A week later I received a call and the background check was done to finish the process.

Interview Question – Describe a moment where you had to sell a product or idea to someone? What steps did you take?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Pay is better for sales interns but they do not get any housing. No negotiating pay and no commission as an intern.

Interview Details – I got called in to take a personality test and assessment exam. The assessment exam wasn't to hard just some logic questions.
