State Farm – Why Work For Us?

State Farm® was founded in 1922 by retired farmer and insurance salesman George Jacob "G.J." Mecherle. His motivation for starting State Farm was simple. It was about fairness and doing the right thing for the customer. Our founder's philosophy remains the cornerstone of our success today. His original vision and values still guide us. State Farm insures more cars than any other insurer in North America. We are the leading U.S. home insurer.

    I worked at State Farm part-time for less than a year


    SF, is an excellent company. They treat their employees with respect and provide decent pay. They have a great benefits package, as well. They gave me all the resources to pass the exam. I failed on my part to study the materials.


    The company doesn't run efficiently.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at State Farm.

    Interview Details

    You will get a call from a local state farm and they will ask you to come in and meet for a one on one interview with the business owner. He will go over you resume with you and ask about you. There were not a lot of hard questions, except "sell me this pen." He may ask behavioral questions about a situation you may encounter during the job. Overall pretty easy interview and got a call within one week that I got the job.
