    Interview Details

    I was invited to interview with state farm through my college career center. I interviewed with two people. The process was really dry; they just asked listed questions and wrote down what I said. There was no serious interaction between interviewers and interviewee. They gave me statefarm gym sack and office supply for a gift

    White males need not apply. Interview panels are mean spirited and hostile. Very initimadating and disrespectful seeking to embarass and or humilate candidate. This is a clear warning not to join this
    company unless you share that philosophy.

    Insurance Account Representative Interview

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at State Farm in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Consisted of two interviews. One on Campus and another on site.

    The On-site interview consisted of many technical questions:

    2.) Examine this code and determine which sample is more appropriate implementation and easier to change - One code uses ArrayList and the other uses ArrayList and the JAVA List method
    3.) What is the difference between Overloading a class and Overwriting a class in JAVA?

    Interview Details

    Applied online, had a brief conversation with the State Farm Agent (you can call it a phone interview), went in for an interview with the agent. There was 12 minute pre-interview test and then an interview with the basic personality questions about experience and question and answer session. Took about 1 week to hear about the position. In the interview it was expressed that it was a sales position and a decent chunk of the pay would be commission.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at State Farm in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Fairly simple to apply - I sent my Resume in through Indeed.com on a Friday and received a phone call later Monday morning. Met with the agent on Thursday and he called me back within two hours after the interview. It was extremely laid back and comfortable, just me and the agent talking in the conference room. Talked about goals and why I wanted to work there. He was extremely positive and upbeat and seemed very genuine.

    Interview Questions
    • There wasn't really any hard questions, it was mainly the paper testing that threw me off. A bunch of ridiculous questions and you're only allowed so much time to complete them.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    He was extremely thorough about his expectations and the different types of compensation which was very reassuring.
