I applied for the a team member position and was offered an Agent Aspirant position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at State Farm (Houston, TX) in June 2012.

    Interview

    This was a lengthy interview process with little or no communication afterward. I was called for a phone screen, then an interview with the agent. One week later I was went in for a second interview with the office manager and an employee who held a similar position. It was a good experience and I thought it all went well. However, communication after the interview was delayed. I finally had to take another offer. Online employee benefits are not the benefits offered during interview.

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at State Farm (Madison, WI) in October 2010.

    Negotiation

    I think every person looking into the job market should be careful of companies that right away tell you that their company is wonderful and this field can help you grow your career etc. Because the reality is why would they care about your future and your wealth? They don't. What the reality is (check online for reviews about being a state farm agent) they will interview you, show you a book of what the position consists of and how you can become sucessful in years to come. Its all bull, when you go for the interview I recommend seeing how they play this role...because in the end what they want is for your to "hook in a bunch of people" and then when you cannot excel in your position - since it is a commission paid position - you will see that they will take all your clients and profit further in their own business.
