Cool, I know State Farm itself is not headquartered out of Atlanta. SF has regional offices all over the US. There is some sort of corporate IT helpdesk location in what was Duluth, now Johns Creek. I googled it and it is called: State Farm Atlanta Operations Center on Johns Creek Parkway. I know they do internal helpdesk work for State Farm employees in Georgia. I know it has been there for well over a decade or so already, as I had known people who used to work there.
Oh yuck, I thought you meant development or server type work. Help desk is the worst

Oh ok, not to highjack the thread, Macy's has an IT department in Johns Creek. I know those jobs pay pretty well (programmers, etc). Check them out if you haven't already. Macy's adds jobs in Johns Creek *| ajc.com

I checked out Google Maps to see myself: it looks like to me you would have to walk a long way from the Dunwoody station along Hammond Road and crossing the very busy artery Ashford-Dunwoody going east to get to the office at 64 Perimeter Center East. I don't know about bus service to that office complex, but I think your best bet is using a car for this particular location.

I interviewed with them. Didn't seem like the sharpest bunch IT-wise and in general.

There is a free shuttle service that runs throughout perimeter center.

Shuttles perimetergo.org

Scroll down and you will see that the shuttle does serve that area from the Dunwoody Marta station.

No idea. General rule of thumb in interviews is not to discuss pay.
