Pros

mon-fri but that will change anytime the agent thinks it is needed.

Cons

Agent is never there and expects you to grow his agency as he wants but never is there to tell you how that is. Unrealistic goals set for ALL employees. Office manager is very nice but only wants to do service work and be left alone. Agent can barely write an auto policy and often tells customers what ever he thinks is best even if it is untrue. You are promised 40k a year pay because of commission but DO NOT expect any more than 30K not matter what and that is being very optimistic. You be told do to whatever it takes to set appointments for the agent to meet with current customers. Good luck because if the agent has something fun to do that day or week he will ask you to reschedule it. Only take this job if you are very very very desperate!

    Pros

    The internship is a great opportunity to travel (if you're not from Bloomington), meet a TON of other students like you, and really get your foot in the door.
    Almost everyone knows about State Farm, so adding it to your resume will make you have pride in where you've worked. The internship is great experience in any field, because there are so many departments within the company.

    Cons

    You have to be ready for the corporate-culture. The internship always starts off really slow (as does any internship) and then once you get into the swing of things, you will be working a full-time job. Once you have enough work to accomplish, the time will go by very quickly.

    Pros

    Friendly supportive staff. Cordial work environment. Upper management followed company rules so if you read the rules you knew what was expected of you.

    Cons

    We had to pay for the coffee in the break room, and the policy for sick days was very, very strict. If you missed one day without a doctors note, you were docked the days salary. Seriously, who goes to the doctor for a cold or other minor illness. The result of this policy was that people came to work sick. Which got everyone else sick. Very unproductive policy.

    Advice to Management

    A free cup of coffee goes a long way my friend when it comes to goodwill with your employees.
