    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at State Farm.

    Interview

    Typical behavioral questions were asked. It is a sales position, so naturally they want to know that you're able to sell. Show them your enthusiasm and willingness to work. The recruiters are kind.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at State Farm (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    It was difficult. A corporate leader was present and was very aggressive towards me. I ended up getting the job but the whole interaction was very uncomfortable. Looking back that should have been a red flag

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at State Farm.

    Interview

    Everything was done via internet and phone. Many people don't get past the online assessment. I recommend that when you're taking that, be in a quiet area so you can focus completely.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at State Farm in March 2017.

    Interview

    I talked to the intern leader in emails and she was very short and did not give me full information. She was not very transparent in which I had to ask her for clarification multiple times. She then asks me to call a number without giving it to me.

    She tells me to call at a certain time, and when I did she put me on hold for 15 minutes. Very unprofessional. When I do get to talk to her, she mixed up her words, and when I corrected her for clarification on how to answer, she seemed a little angry. When she asked if I could interview next week, I explain to her that I will be out of the state for spring break. She then proceeds to ask me if I'm going to have fun during break in a negative way and she then proceeds to give me a mini lecture on how even though I'm young and want to have fun, that I should cancel my plans to interview for the internship. Keep in mind that I am visiting family and going to a graduation ceremony during my allotted time off of school.

    She asked me a couple different questions 2 or 3 times each. Obviously she did not have a formulated list of questions and she was not recording whether or not I answered. She was overall very unprofessional.

    I feel as though State Farm should have had a more trained representative interview the interns.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at State Farm (Atlanta, GA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online on 2/7/17. Got my assessment email on 2/20 and completed it on 2/21. Got an email about the phone/Skype interview for 3/13 on 3/7. I was initially told it was for the class that started on 3/20, but it was cutting it so close that when it was time to interview, the interviewer told me it would be for the 5/1 class, which was fine with me. However, I felt like the interviewer wasn't into it and it all seemed so sloppy. First of all, she kept telling me this job may have me working nights or weekends and I told her that was fine and that I understand that when I applied. We also discussed how I've worked at a State Farm agent's office before and she kept saying it wasn't the same working in claims, which I also told her I understood and was aware of. She kept emphasizing these things like she was trying to talk me out of the job. She barely discussed the videos I was told to watch and we didn't even do a role play scenario. We also didn't discuss other opportunities with the company. Despite a negative experience, I would apply with State Farm again.
