Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at State Farm.

Interview Details

I was recruited by my current employer but we still had a series of interviews. I also met the area and district managers and was able to make sure that my future wish to become a sales only, commission based employee would happen. I love working from home and controlling my own hours/income.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at State Farm in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I switched offices so it was an extremely easy process. Even the first office I was hired at was easy hiring, but that was kind of a sink or swim hiring process. If you're licensed, moral, and determined there shouldn't be a reason you can't get a job at an agent's office and succeed. Good entry level position, but the small office structure means the culture will differ depending on the agent. State Farm as a company though has an awesome culture, I feel it puts the customer first.

    The downfall is that it is somewhat selective on who should be customers.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at State Farm in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Agent was looking for college graduates who could assist in growing his book of business. Follow-up was sporadic, but I believe that was due to the agent's frequent absence from the office.

    Interview Questions

    Difficult to leverage prior salary for an increase. Major selling point is potential to inherit your own agency and book of business once you establish yourself as a regional leader.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at State Farm in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    A sit down interview with the agent followed by a personality test. It was very laid back and open but it would depend on which agent you interview with. Some have different requirements of their workers. Salary and commission structure vary also.

    An offer was made and it was take it or leave it. A great place to work if you are more concerned with the work environment than salary.
