    Interview

    Initial contact is made by a recruiter in the HR department. Multiple interview times are available but not much flexibility with the times. Long interview format with multiple managers. Questions are typical scenario type based on the tasks required for the position.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at State Farm in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted after speaking with recruiters at a college career fair. I was offered the first interview, which was with three representatives. They each went through asking different questions. Lasted about 45 minutes. I was contacted about a second interview. The second interview was about a week and a half after the first. Both interviews asked basically the same questions. Basic situational questions in the interview. They're really interested in personal experiences. The second interview was a little more technical oriented, but they were very quick to explain that lack of technical knowledge doesn't matter much. A job was offered a few days after the second interview. Offer was good, but ended up declining because of a little bit better offer elsewhere. Very great overall vibe throughout the entire interviewing process though.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at State Farm (Tallahassee, FL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Several State farm employees visited my software engineering class. They promised great work-life balance and the like. Had a phone interview that essentially just went over my resume and asked a few basic questions. What is a method in java. Then the second interview which they asked countless behavioral questions in rapid fire. Name a time where you had to solve a difficult problem, and explain how you approached that problem. Name a time you had to explain a difficult concept to someone how did you do it. They essentially ask the same analytical based question 4-5x to see if you have multiple stories. I was tired, and was not prepared for this barage. They asked where do you see yourself in 2 years. I personally disliked the attitude of the people interviewing me, they seemed really cold. Best of luck if you want to work for state farm

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at State Farm (Bloomington, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I met with two people, the direct supervisor and one other supervisor. They were very personable and put me at ease. We had a "conversation" more so than an interview (although they were obviously using the STAR method), which was much more relaxing and less stressful. I felt this helped me to put my best foot forward, rather than being nervous and stumbling over my answers.

    I applied online. I interviewed at State Farm (Bloomington, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Very relaxed and conversational. Many of the questions were simply behavioral, and looking more so for how you respond in certain situations. After this interview occurred, they contacted me within a week to schedule a more technical interview and after that I received an offer.

    It was during a campus career fair. The head of the department gave me the opportunity to interview the next day. The interview was quite ordinary. But they won't be able to sponsor the H-1B visa for international students.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at State Farm (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    My first interview was on the phone with 3 interviewers switching between questions. Mostly behavioral questions about situations I have been in in the past. Not bad at all just be prepared with exact situations. They prefer exact situations. If anytime they ask you to rate yourself on something don't undercut yourself.
