Anonymous Employee in Dunwoody, GA
Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at State Farm in July 2014.

Interview Details

Applied for position in July 2014. Received email stating that I will have to take 2 assessments. Took the assessments. Received email that I passed the assessments and results will be passed to HR. Received email from HR asking me to forward info to someone else in HR with date and time range for a phone interview. Received and confirmed time for interview.

Interview Questions
  • Basic interview questions: Tell me what you know about State Farm. Tell me about yourself? How have you dealt with rude/difficult customers.

    The interviewer asked about my availability on my application and said I would be required to work over night or weekends. My thought was if I told you that I want to work day shift M-F, why would you call me for an interview knowing that you would want me to work nights and weekends??? This is why I didn't get an offer, because I felt confident about everything else.

    I interviewed online - interviewed at State Farm in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process with State Farm is simple and easy. I happened to apply for the Claims Associate position two days after it was posted on the careers website and I got an email back from State Farm the next day saying I had made it to the next round. First you email an agreement form back to State Farm then you take a typing test and data entry simulation on SkilTrak. About two weeks after I did my SkilTrak test I received an email stating I had a phone interview. My phone interview lasted about 30 minutes. The questions were easy behavioral questions, "How would you handle a difficult customer" ... "How have you worked on a team in the past" ..... "How well do you say you multi-task".... Use STAR Method to answer your questions during your interview. State Farm made me an offer during my phone interview. Overall it was one of the best interviews I've had.

    Interview process was short and to the point. Did phone interview and was hired. Asked questions about prior work experience and how did I deal with customers. The interviewer was very professional and told me what to expect in the job. Reviewed all of my past work experience. Also asked if I had any questions and was able to answer them all. I was advised of the next steps after accepting the job offer and sent an email further explaining everything. It was a seamless process.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at State Farm in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received an email saying they were interested in considering me and sent me links to complete some tests. One was a personality type of test and the other was a skills test. It was a simulation where you would take calls from clients and record their information. You earned points by typing the information accurately and not asking the client to repeat themselves. It was pretty easy if you were careful to pay attention. There was also a typing test. After that I got an email saying they wanted to do a phone interview. The interview was fairly short, a little under 30 minutes. We talked first about my experience and then there were several behavioral interview questions. They seemed focused mainly on leadership skills and how you would handle clients who are unhappy. At the end of the phone interview I was given a contingent offer of employment. Once I completed a background check and drug test I was given an offer of employment.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at State Farm.

    Interview Details

    Five days after applying online, I was contacted about the online testing. The same day I was contacted about setting up a phone interview. I was never sent the actual testing link as I had already done them when I had previously applied. I did the phone interview and the woman explained that I would hear back within two weeks as they are trying to fill a lot of positions and are not currently hiring on spot. It's been 5 days and my app is still being reviewed by the hiring manager.

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at State Farm in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    At first I filled out several applications online. After several declines, I finally moved to the next step in the hiring process. The next step was taking an online assessment. One test was based on behavior analysis and the other test was data entry. After completing the assessments I received an email stating that I passed my test and that I was a runner up. A week later I received an email for a phone interview. My phone interview went well. It was just basically about my recruiter asking about my work history and "what would you dos". After answering my recruiters questions she told me about the position and extended me the offer. The job is actually yours until you successfully pass a background and drug test.

    I interviewed online. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at State Farm in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied via statefarm.com. The next day I recevied an email congratulating me about progressing forward in the employment process. I was given a passcode and website to take the pre-employment test. This is a skilltrack exam which included two components. First portion test your ability to analyze and apply information. You are given charts/graphs and questions are taken from the charts/graphs. There are about 17 questions with multiple choice answers to choose from. It is timed. Not hard but you do have to watch your time. The next part is a personality testing which includes about 67 questions. Answer those truthfully.

    After the exam, the next day I got an email stating I received a competitive score. I then get an email about a week later requesting a time for an interview. They give you several days and time to choose from to complete a phone interview. You will receive an email confirming the time and date. They state that it is a 45 minute phone interview but mine only lasted about 15 minutes.

    Interview Questions
    • It was a fairly easy interview if you prepared. Interviewer started off talking about the position and benefits available. First question was "Tell me about yourself, your work history, and why you want to work for State Farm." Second question was tell me a time when you had to work on a team and there was a difficult coworker who was unwilling to pull his weight. Then she asked "tell me a time when there was a difficult customer, how did you handled it, and their reaction." Then she went through some HR questions like are you legal to work in the U.S., comit any felony, willing to relocate, etc. She said she would call and let me know the next day. Advice is use SAR (situation, action, result) in your responses. They love stories and stories stick in the person's mind as well as let them know more of the person you are.   Answer Question
