    Interview

    The tour is great and people are nice and nice to talk to. They will ask if you need water or need to use restroom in the middle of the interview. Working environment is great with lots of drinks and snacks in the kitchen area where people chill out

They just want to know why you thinking about working in insurance , if you are honest and have integrity as selling insurance is a profession that you will be protected if you are Honest in the long run . If you have your P & C license it makes you more marketable. Usually State Farm will pay for your life and P and C licenses.

    Phone interview, then a face-to-face interview. Also had to do a personality and skills test prior to the interview but they were fairly simple. The phone interview took about 15 minutes and then that lead to a 1:1 interview.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at State Farm.

    Interview

    Very little interview process. Answered openly and mentioned the certification process which was acquiring the relative licensing and certifications required to perform the job duties. The faster you can complete this step the quicker you can begin employment. The overall experience was quite simple since past performance or willingness to perform and show up ready will work well in your favor.
