Pros: nice christmas bonus that you could pick from a list of appliances to collector plates
Cons: non realy
Not stressful but very productive. Started early and finished at a good hour. Management was great when I worked for my female supervisor, a wonderful lady. My co-workers were a joy to work with, They came from varied backgrounds and it was a great experience learning about or lifestyles etc. The hardest part of the job was when we went to a team aspect – more... and sometimes workers did not pull their own weight. The most memorable part of my job was when we did an employee - team booster competition. FUN... – less

State Farm is a pleasant and interesting place to work. Both Agencies that I worked with were good with a focus on supporting staff to make a difference for the clients. Good benefits and a caring boss makes State Farm a great place to be.

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
I worked there over 20 years ago and it was one of the best places to work.

Customer Service/Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), mississauga, on – July 24, 2012
Pros: free beverages
Cons: short breaks
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. My co-workers are great to be around; they're fun, outgoing and simply amazing! The hardest part of the job is keeping up with everything when it's a busy day, many customers call in for quotes – more... which becomes pretty hectic but still is a fun task to do. The most enjoyable part of this job is putting the insurance information into the system. – less
Agent (Former Employee), Gilroy, CA – September 24, 2014
I learned how to deal with people's important issues, especially when it comes to life and auto insurance a lot of people overthink a lot of things. I have come to understand that even though people hate cold callings; that that's the only way people will ever know about how much money they can save from switching over to State Farm Insurance.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Dunwoody, GA – September 23, 2014
State Farm was a friendly work place. It was a call center work place. I would take back to back calls through out my work period and assist customers with whatever they needed assistance with. I learned how to work better with other people on teams and getting customers to better place. I enjoyed making customers happy.
