State Farm Jobs In Tempe Az - The first of what could eventually be 8,000 State Farm employees has begun moving into the company's gleaming new regional headquarters in Tempe, where five steel and glass towers are now a fixture in the city's burgeoning skyline.
Marina Heights, which cost more than $700 million, bustles with activity as 1,200 construction workers add the finishing touches and about the same number of State Farm employees settle into their new excavations.

The campus brings an urban, big-city feel to the shores of Tempe Town Lake. A labyrinthine garage winds and undulates through 3,500 underground spaces and features another 4,800 above ground stalls. Among the approximately 2 million square feet of office space will be restaurants, a two-story fitness center and even a primary care physician's office.

State Farm, through its partners Sunbelt Holdings and Ryan Cos., pioneered Marina Heights in 2013 after selecting Tempe for one of three regional office centers in the United States. The company is headquartered in Bloomington, Illinois, with other regional centers in Atlanta and Dallas.
Many of the jobs at Marina Heights will be entry-level positions with salaries between $27,000 and $29,000, with opportunities to advance within the company, executives said during a press tour Tuesday.
With relaxation rooms that resemble cafes and wine bars and brightly colored common rooms with walls for workers to write on, the complex feels like a place designed with the working Millennial in mind.
Each cubicle features desks that can be raised or lowered at the touch of a button, a nod to the "get up while you work" trend that presents a healthier alternative to hours spent in front of a computer.

Meeting rooms are equipped with motion sensors to turn off lights and help employees know which rooms are available for impromptu meetings. One room on each floor is equipped with a 360-degree video camera for remote meetings.
At lunchtime, State Farm employees can enjoy their packed lunch on the eighth-floor balcony, grab something from the 24-hour market, or, starting next fall, dine at a new Matt's Big Breakfast location planned for Marina Heights, according to State Agricultural Officials. There is an additional 6,000 square feet of space set aside for a restaurant, but there are no tenants yet, they said.
The five office towers within Marina Heights range from six to 17 stories and will include some of the tallest buildings in the East Valley.
Only the West Sixth apartment towers along Mill Avenue and the University House student housing towers south of Sun Devil Stadium are taller, and the complex has transformed the view of downtown Tempe for thousands of motorists through from Tempe Town Lake via Loop 202.

Perhaps most importantly, the office center is generating an influx of new jobs and is spawning other development in downtown Tempe, including high-rent apartments, shops and restaurants. The new Hanover Mill Avenue housing development, which opened this fall, cited Marina Heights as a direct influence on the company's decision to build in Tempe.
State Farm is consolidating all of its corporate offices in the Phoenix metropolitan area into the Tempe complex, including claims, banking, information technology, sales and internal audit work, among others.
The company recently announced plans to hire 1,000 workers in Metro Phoenix during the first half of 2016. State Farm will hold a one-day job fair on January 12 at the Sheraton Mesa Hotel in Wrigleyville West.
State Farm believes the Marina Heights complex could be complete with 8,000 workers by the end of 2019.
