A typical day at work starts at 8:30 and runs until 4:30. We get a 45 minute lunch break. Management is very approachable and co-workers are easy to work with. Hardest part of the job would be at crunch time (end of promotions for agents) and we find ourselves understaffed due to absenteeism or vacations. Most enjoyable part of the job is being able – more... to help clients. – less

State Farm is a great company to work for. I learned so much about insurance and office work, gained much experience and knowledge about many different things.
