Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pomona, CA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pomona, CA
Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed 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 applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed 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.
