Don't get sucked into State Farm by the salary during training.

Agency Intern (Current Employee) Murfreesboro, TN

ProsState Farm is willing to invest in their employees by paying a salary to interns in training to become an agents. This is not common in the the insurance industry. They put you through very good training during that time. As an insurance company it is a very solid, stable and conservative company.

ConsThey treat agency interns brutally.They are very unforgiving of mistakes or failure to meet goals regardless of reasons. For part of your training they'll put you in an agents office who may or may not be concerned with your development. Who may or may not be competent themselves. The "family friendly" facade is just that - a facade. You better hit your goals and you better invest every last dime you have when you get your TICA contract. Even after working laboriously and spending your own money, if you are not hitting goals - regardless of whether your rates are competitive or not - they will send you walking. TICA stands for TEMPORARY Independent Contract Agreement. So after a year, if you aren't doing what they want you to you are out, no questions asked.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe DAFO side of State Farm should look at the content of the character of their interns in addition to results.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
