    they gave me a base salary amount. They mentioned commissions but did not say what they paid for commissions. You should ask about when you will be eligibe for an increase in pay. Ask how many attempts you get, to pass the insurance test. How long you have to study and if you have to have both Life & Health & P &C or just one.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at State Farm in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact was by telephone and email. I had two interviews, the first with HR which was a pretty basic sanity check interview. At the same time there was a basic computer skills test measuring typing speed and accuracy, etc. The second interview was more involved, with questions about sales experience and customer service experience. Expect what-if scenarios and 'give me an example of a time when you..' type questions.

    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation of wages, they had a set pay.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at State Farm in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Overall the Interview process was extensive. It involved taking an online assessment first. If you move forward then you go in to interview with the Agent. If that is successful you are required to take another online test provided through State Farm. Once you successfully complete that as well as the background and reference check then you may be hired. Please keep in mind that every State Farm Agent has their own hiring practices besides what is required by State Farm.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were not difficult... your standard basic interview questions (e.g. why should I hire you?)   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiations. The Agent lets you know the starting salary and commission levels and you decide whether you accept or not.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at State Farm in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    I became aware of the opportunity via a career services posting and though I'd try my hand in it. My prep mainly consisted of familiarizing myself with the website, learning about the various products offered, the qualifications not only for the position I was interviewing for, but also for the positions that were above mine.

    Advice would be to prepare for behavioral questions.
