Customer Service Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Hendersonville, NC (US)

I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at State Farm in April 2014.

Interview Details Interview was smooth and free of the usual "tell me about a time when.." kinds of questions. The agent focused squarely on the business and the role to be played. The information sought was intuitive yet the questions or statements leading into the conversation was unique to the agent's business model. I learned quite a bit from the interview and am blessed to have had the opportunity to sit for the CSR role.

I interviewed at State Farm in March 2014.

Interview Details conference call interview with 3 HR after 2 computer tests online. Two of the 3 HR didn't make any common. Just one HR kept talking..

Interview Question – keep asking example with overlap behavior questions which mean one example can cover couple questions but they will ask separately for more examples.   Answer Question

Insurance Producer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Seattle, WA (US)

I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at State Farm in February 2013.

Interview Details Went into local office, and asked for job. Local agent was extremely supportive and payed for the licensing. Interview process was two in office meetings. Normal questions about past, and where you want to be in the future.

Interview Question – none. State Farm does want to promote new hires to agents after a few years, so I would bring up being an agent to your employer. The current agent gets a referral commission for new agents, so it is in both your best interests.   Answer Question

Systems Analyst Interview

Interviewed at State Farm

Interview Details I had one HR interview and one on-site interview at State Farm HQ with the hiring manager. The HR round was about my work experience and I was asked some generic questions such as why I was looking for a new opportunity etc.

The on-site technical interview was a breeze. All the questions were based on my previous experience and was asked to talked through some of the projects I worked on.

Interview Question – Nothing that I can remember. All questions were easy and straightforward. No tricky questions.   Answer Question

Claims Associate- ILR Interview

Anonymous Employee
Tacoma, WA (US)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at State Farm in December 2013.

Interview Details Initial application submitted, then contacted to complete a competancy test (Basic data entry and typing speeds). Contacted after to let me know I had passed the test, and was then called to do a phone interview. The entire process took about 3 weeks. Training started about 3 weeks later.

Underwriting Service Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at State Farm.

Interview Details I applied for a couple positions, and received an email requesting that I take an online test. The test was fun--some analytical questions, some data entry stuff--and wasn't a bunch of that "are you a sociopath" stuff. A little while later I got an email saying I "scored competitively" on the test and would be contacted further if selected for an interview. About a month after my initial application, I got an email to schedule an interview for a month in the future--so two months after I applied. The email included helpful stuff like a detailed job description and information about the type of questions they planned to ask. At the interview, there was a short presentation with three other interviewees, giving more details about the position, and then we split off with individual interviewers. The woman I interviewed with was really nice, and did her best to make it a positive experience for both of us. Afterward, I was taken to a room to wait for a while. My guess is that "yes" candidates were taken to the "holding cell" (where we talked to a current employee, who was also super nice; she told us about continuing education and her experience with advancement) and "no" candidates were thanked and sent on their way. Then we were taken to talk to a guy from HR, who told us we were going to receive a provisional job offer. He also gave us a bunch of information about benefits and what to expect from our first few days. The only frustrating part about the process was how long it took--two months from application to interview, then two more months before the job's start date.

Interview Question – I didn't really have any difficult questions, so I don't have anything helpful to say here. Sorry! Just typical interview stuff.   Answer Question

Unlicensed Office Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee
Chicago, IL (US)

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at State Farm in December 2013.

Interview Details My employer actually detected that I previously worked at State Farm based on how I had a strange assortment of Mutual Funds policies. I was a state to state transfer and he was following up on the transfer. He offered me a job, asked me my future career goals, if I wanted to become licensed, ran over my previous qualifications, and then asked my availability.

Interview Question – Determining my timeline of employment. I think my situation isn't too normal but I was asked how long I wanted to work for the company.   View Answer
