Interview Details –
I applied online and was contacted for a phone interview with HR. I was initially applying for an actuarial internship, but didn't have any exams passed, so the HR rep suggested applying for some different internships. I applied to a few in the life/health department.
I received an email a couple of weeks later telling me when my next phone interview was (didn't contact me to ask when a good time would be, just decided for me). Luckily, I was available at that time. This phone interview was with two different hiring managers in L/H. It lasted about a half hour, same as the initial interview.
A few weeks after that, I got an email saying I got the position!

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at State Farm in November 2013.
Interview Details – I applied online to a several different jobs on the State Farm website and got several rejection emails. A few weeks later I got an email with a link to a skills test. The test included data entry and typing, and there was a personality questionnaire as well. After a few more weeks, I got an email requesting that I schedule a phone interview for the underwriter's service assistant position, so I did. At the time of the scheduled interview, the lady I scheduled the interview with called me and asked me basic questions "Tell me about yourself," and "Why do you want to work for State Farm." The rest of the questions were geared toward gauging my work ethic, customer service background, and problem solving abilities. She was very easy to talk to and the interview experience was pleasant. When she finished asking her questions, she asked if I had any questions. After she answered my questions, she told me what the salary would be and whether I would be willing to go to work. I said yes, and she I'd be getting an email regarding drug testing and a background check. The next day I got two emails from this 3rd party called HireRight, filled out my background check paperwork, and scheduled a drug test. State Farm sent a contingent offer email with more information for me. At the end of the next week, I started getting nervous and emailed the person who sent the contingent email asking if everything was ok, and she told me that it was, and that I would get an official offer by a certain date, and my start date would be November 11. Time between getting the interview scheduled and my start date: over a month.

Negotiation Details – I was too giddy that I got the job to bother negotiating. I guess I could have tried to when she said, "Your hours will be 40/week, and starting salary will be $XX,XXX, would you be willing to accept this offer?" but I can't tell you whether or not that's the thing to do.
