Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at State Farm.

Interview

I submitted a resume and was contacted by an outside recruiter. First call lasted about 15 minutes. He told me he would pass on my information and that the agent would either contact me if he was interested or not at all. Have not been contacted. I guess the agent wasn't interested.

    Interview

    Very personal. 1 phone interview, then 1 face-to-face. Many questions about goals, life and expectations. Very informal which I like.
    Mine consisted of a 20 minute phone call, then scheduled an appointment.
    My appointment interview took about 45 minutes and mainly felt like meeting a new person who was more like a friend than an employer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at State Farm (Columbia, SC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I emailed my resume to a recruiter at my former University and got an email back immediately. I went in on a Friday morning and the interview was very laid back. The manager was very nice and asked a lot of questions about my college degree (social science also I'm a recent graduate) and why I wanted a sales position. He asked questions about my previous sales jobs and told me a lot about the company. They stressed being able to connect with people and having an willingness to work. Monday I was offered the job and my background check was completed by thursday. I saw someone say that you must have good credit to work for them and that is false. Also if you have an accident or a few tickets you will still be fine.

    Interview

    The interview was laid back. It depends on who the agent is. I took initiative in telling about myself, and my past experience. You need to have some kind of sales background, or customer service, dealing with people, etc. Everything relys on the personality of your agent. They could be any certain way, just be professional, and honest.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at State Farm (Newberg, OR) in October 2014.

    Interview

    There was first a phone screen and then an in person interview, each about 30 minutes to an hour. The interview questions were almost identical from the phone screen to the in person interview, apart from a brief exercise of trying to sell an office desk item. It was a friendly interview and it was important to the agent to sell the possibility of future agency as well.
