Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Pomona, CA
Anonymous Employee in Pomona, CA
Application Details

I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at State Farm in February 2011.

Interview Details

The interview was about 30 minutes long and they asked me some pretty technical question regarding the insurance industry and why I would be a good fit. They ask you about your personality and how you would resolve certain situation given a scenario. I was interviewed by the manager and another sales agent and I guess he's the HR manager.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 months - interviewed at State Farm in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very detailed and time consuming. The agent wants to be sure you are the right fit for his business and did not want to have an associate that would not fit well with the agency.

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at State Farm in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview and hiring process is pretty straight forward, you will take assessements to gauge your apptitude to sell. One is timed and mostly math and verbal question and the second is untimed and focuses on personality traits. Overall not too challanging but definietly makes a difference on how well you score.
