    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at State Farm (Gardena, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was smooth and pleasant. However it is to become a sales person so it was more of a pitch from Farmers to sell for them. The first couple months (until you meet a quota) is commission based. But essentially can be making a lot of money if you are a persuasive person.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at State Farm in August 2014.

    Interview

    Received e-mail, then call from a head hunter. Call lasted half hour, general chit-chat. When to store front met with Owner. Explained vision of the store, and what was expected. After our interview again hour an hour forty-five minutes, follow up with crew. Like that is was extremely important that all employees had to get along and have a good vibe. Went in for that interview. Again, I thought it went well until we hit a snag. I asked about snow days. Apparently that is the one day most needed in the office. That ended the interview process. In good faith I could not promise I could make it during a snow storm.

    Interview Questions
