    It lasted about 2 hours. We had a great conversation and she asked for an entire background story about my life. Then, once she determined I was right for the job, she gave me a job description of what I would be doing. The job was actually very nice. It was on my own time and gave me freedom.

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at State Farm (Seattle, WA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Very casual. Asked a few basic questions about my work experience and then talked a great deal about himself. Didn't seem to have basic interviewing skills and never called my ex-employers or asked for references. I was surprised how much he wanted to talk about my personal life, hobbies and his family and volunteer work. It was the most casual interview I've ever encountered.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at State Farm (Stamford, CT) in February 2013.

    Interview

    It went well. Some of the salary and benefits were a bit glorified. Seems like there is not much room for advancement. Overall a decent company to work for for mid level positions. I would like to see more help and more lead generation offered to all agents. It seems like you are left to fend for yourself
