Insurance Agent Interview

Insurance Agent
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online - interviewed at State Farm in May 2014.

Interview Details – I applied at a local office. I was first emailed to come in for an interview. It was not an interview but test given. Background check and credit check forms to fill out. After I was done with all of the written test they had I was then asked back for an second interview. The second interview was with the agent of the office. He was straight forward in what the job was and his expectations. Interview questions were basic. After the interview he sent off my info for the background check and credit check. Got a call about a week and I was hired!

Interview Details – I just took an interview with the Head of HR and the process was fairly laid back. No questions were to serious or stunning. One of the questions I remember was, " what plans do you have in 5 years?" I told them management and they seemed to like it.

Reason for Declining – I felt like I wanted to explore the job market more.

Very Easy Interview

Insurance Agent Interview

Insurance Agent
Kennesaw, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at State Farm in January 2012.

Interview Details – It lasted about 2 hours. We had a great conversation and she asked for an entire background story about my life. Then, once she determined I was right for the job, she gave me a job description of what I would be doing. The job was actually very nice. It was on my own time and gave me freedom.

Interview Question – What do you know about State Farm Insurance?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – It was full-commission which was not what I was looking for.

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at State Farm in August 2010.

Interview Details – I had to take a personality and skills test on the computer after the one on one interview. The lady loved me then I take the test and failed due to not passing the part about customer service. I feel that the test was unfair because I totally feel I have customer service skills. I have over 18 years real estate experience and I am licensed as an insurance agent in Property/Casualty, Life, Acdident and Health. I definitely know customer service. With being in real estate for so many years, I have been over almost backwards and gone out of my way to please folks. I think companies that have such test miss out on some good candidates that would of been a great asset to their company. I would like to know who actually makes these sort of test up, they obviously have a different personality than poor ole me. I have got on with a good insurance company and have been doing great and have been receiving great reviews.
