Interview Details

Very standard, phone interview with typically questions - describe yourself, how did you handle a situation that involved conflicting team members, how did you overcome an obstacle, etc. It was my first interview ever, and I was extremely nervous but somehow impressed the interview enough to get the job offer.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed 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 Details

    I got called in to take a personality test and assessment exam. The assessment exam wasn't to hard just some logic questions. You get told if you passed right away and then I was set up for an interview with their HR person. Interview was standard, mostly question about how you do in groups. A few weeks later I had a phone interview with the manager I would be working under and was then offered the job a week later.

    The process took a weekinterviewed 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.
