Has anyone heard the news that State Farm is ending homeowner policies in California? How will this affect Residential Property Field Adjusters? I am concerned about job security since auto and commercial jobs with State Farm in California are majority already filled.

Two rounds. First is a hirevue interview then the next round was a 3-hour interview with different people from the department. They take you through a round of questions, both situational and behavioral. Mainly looking at how you are thinking through different scenarios.

- What is one project that you are proud of?
I work as a fully licensed State Farm Team Member. I have ADHD as well as a few other health problems. Due to my problems- I need a job that doesn’t have me on my feet all day. Currently I am making $13 an hour and I need a pay increase but I am not likely to get that here. I also need benefits which are not provided here. I REALLY need health insurance. I feel like I’m not appreciated like I should be- am I just burnt out or should I look for a new job? Any job recommendations?

There was one hirevue interview with behavioral questions and one coding question. Each question gave you 30 seconds of preparation. You were allowed one retake. Second round was a final interview with another set of behavioral. Received offer after second round.

The timeline of the interview process took a very long time. I first applied back in June then a couple of days later, I got a request to complete a virtual interview. After that, I met with a recruiter to explain the benefits, the hiring process, and the next steps 1.5 months later. I was told that my next interview would be a behavioral interview. The panel interview happened 3 weeks after that interview. The panel interview was not behavioral at all. They asked me very technical questions, which I had not been prepared to answer. The interview went terribly.

Anonymous Interview Candidate
I interviewed at State Farm
It was a conversation solely based around the agent and all his talents. Main question was- can you sell. Was told to go get licensed and they’d hire me but wouldn’t if I wasn’t licensed because I’d be of little value. The job I applied for was a receptionist position, had zero mention of sales and only asked if I could obtain a license. Never said I’d need one to get hired. The agent wasted an hour of mine time speaking mainly about himself. Worst interview. If you want your time wasted, to feel devalued and like you aren’t even worthy of an entry level- apply here.
- Can you sell? Are you licensed? What is your 10 year plan (he cut me off seconds into my answer to speak about himself and how great he was so I didn’t even get to answer).

I applied through State Farm's website. A week after applying I received an invite to complete a Hirevue interview. I had 10 days to complete the Hirevue Interview. The interview consisted of 3 behavioral questions and a coding challenge . The coding challenge was using Python and did not have a time limit. Three weeks later I had a 1 hr virtual interview with two members of the team that I was interviewing for. The interview was mostly behavioral questions. I received an offer the following week. The background check took a week to complete. I had a positive experience interviewing with State Farm! State Farm did a good job at keeping me in the loop throughout the interview process.
