Enterprise Initial loss reporting (Current Employee) – Tacoma, WA – October 10, 2017
good people to work with hard company to work for, loved my co workers but it is a demanding stressful job with very strict guidelines to follow. often feel like you are leaving the customer in a lurch.

Agency Field Specialist (Former Employee) – North Carolina – October 9, 2017
State Farm has one of the best cultures that I have ever seen in a company. I have been very happy and grateful to be able to work for them. I enjoyed my time as an agency field specialist. My manager was great, and the territory I supported as fantastic. State Farm did a lot to make sure you had all of the necessary resources to do your job well.
Workplace culture was relaxed and positive. The most enjoyable part of this job was being able to interact with a variety of people on a daily basis through both phone calls and in-person interactions.
SALES (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – October 9, 2017
In a perfect world agent's team members would be unionized. We are grossly underpaid, overworked, and have beyond high expectations. It's not an entitlement, it's the fact that we are put to solicit products for a company that has BEYOND high expectations and requirements to even qualify for said products. I could rant all day.
A job with potential, but if you don't have 100 personal contacts you can convert to their coverage right away, don't even bother. 90 day probation before they decide if they want to enter you into the agent aspirant program.
Claims Express Associate (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – October 8, 2017
A quick-paced call center environment that was also monitored by extensive metrics that each employee needed to abide by. Generous benefits were offered, but employee expectations were unfair and unrealistic.
Great Benefits, 45 minute lunches; opportunity for career advancement
Customer Relations Team Lead (Former Employee) – Dayton, OH – October 7, 2017
Typical day involves correcting other team or company mistakes and trying to help customers understand their policies, changes etc...but that's just service. However the multiple application systems State Farm uses is just ridiculous. Go to one place for quoting autos, use another system to quote RV's and others have to literally lookup and calculate rates manually and submit paper apps ...it's just the most uncoordinated resource "system-if you-can-call-it that" I've seen. Once when you've learned the tricks and where the tools are at the pace is better. But the thing I was looking for most going in from this agency was a mentoring relationship since I was starting new in the insurance industry. But apparently what was expected in return was to just shut my trap, not offer other opinions or disagree with the owner in meetings and just book appointments. Too bad it was not a good fit because my co-workers were pretty nice, and I looked forward to going into work with them. Hours were acceptable, however I could see that if I had more time/success that there definitely would have been some after hours and weekends expected. Not a problem because I knew that going in. Beyond that, benefits offered were minimal at best, but potential commissions and salary were pretty fair and seemed attainable. For example: my agent's office offered 8 paid holidays, 3 sick days and $100 (after a year of employment) towards (medical, vision, dental & life) for plan of choice. Beyond that, you're pretty much on your own.
Nice office and location, co-workers, commissions/bonuses fair, License fees paid by owner
No healthcare, Short breaks, After hours appointments, poor management style
Full time Insurance producer and office associate (Former Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – October 7, 2017
I was working there and was told to keep lying to an underwriter to insure another person moving into the same residence as his son....who was married but listed as single because his wife had a DUI and suspended driver license which would make that home uninsurable. I told the woman who had originally handled the policy to keep handling it and I would not keep the lie for her. After that work was made a nightmare and eventually I was forced to resign with some hush money. Totally crooked agency!
Brand Ambassador (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 6, 2017
The environment was fun and lovable. Yes, like any job there was stress, but what job that is worth having isn't there any stress? The staff and crews I found and was able associate with were warm, and friendly. They do truly care about helping those that are around them and look forward to any opportunity they able to help you out.
