    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at State Farm (Bloomington, IL).

    Interview

    Phone and in person with multiple people. You speak with many different people. Ultimately it felt like the role they were hiring for was evolving from the original posting, which was frustrating.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at State Farm (Bloomington, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Simple behavioral questions to get a better idea of what kind of person you are and what your goals are for the future. There were questions about what I did in school and why I wanted to pursue a career at State Farm. The interviewers just wanted to get an idea of what type of employee I would be.

    User Experience Researcher Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at State Farm (Bloomington, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process went as follows: was contacted initially by a recruiter on LinkedIn, we talked for 30 minutes about the facility and the locations (Bloomington, IL and Dunwoody, GA). Then she told me I would be contacted for an HR interview with more "in-depth/technical" questions.

    The HR interview was scheduled that Friday, she was 15 minutes late to the phone interview, which lasted about 15 minutes. All she asked me were anecdotal questions such as "how do you explain a complex topic?" or "tell me about your life". Nothing actually technical or in-depth was asked, leading me to believe they were looking for a student/fresh graduate who would work for peanuts. When asked about salary, all I said was "fair market plus cost of living for Dunwoody" - there was no response to that.

    I was then told I would be contacted again if there was interest moving forward (I'm guessing the next interview would actually have UX questions?). The HR recruiter said I would hear back next Tuesday at the latest. I didn't get an email until the next day, Wednesday morning, which was so vague, I'm not certain if it's a rejection or a glorified "thank you note". Here's the email text:

    Subject: Notification regarding your application for User Experience Researcher

    Body: Thank you for your interest in employment opportunities with State Farm and for giving us the opportunity to consider you for the job opening listed below. We appreciate the time you have spent on our behalf.

    I'm guessing this was a rejection, but it's so vague, I have no idea who would write a rejection letter as such.

    I included a portfolio, with links to research projects, but according to Google Analytics, no one at State Farm looked at them. As such, I really have NO IDEA how they actually pursue qualified candidates, and am left with my original conclusion that they are looking for a fresh graduate, who's simply cheap and impressionable. Based on the whole experience, I cannot really form any other conclusion.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at State Farm (Bloomington, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied for the position online and received an e-mail 2 days later asking for my unofficial transcript. About 5 days later I received a call to set up a phone interview. About 4 days after the phone interview I was invited to come out to their HQ in Bloomington, IL for an in-person interview. The interview itself was really laid back, I met with 5-6 different people in their company and had a short 20 min. conversation with each one. Mostly just asking about my previous internships/school experience. About three weeks after the in-person interview I received an e-mail letting me know I didn't get the job.

    Interview

    I applied for the job back in June, did some typing test in July and interviewed in August. It has only been 2 days since my interview so i have to choose no offer below, although i feel confident the interview went well and i will receive an offer. There were 8 of us at the interview and were all taken into a room with an HR rep and 2 current USA employees to review the job. then they did individual interviews with 2 managers. Spent about 1 hour total there. They said it would take 5-10 business days to hear back
