Business Development Agent (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 16 April 2014
Typical work day includes dealing with new potential clients and existing clients to help them with their home and auto insurance needs. During my time at Allstate I have achieved my OTL licence and transitioned into a Canadian working environment. Management are approachable and honest. The hardest part of the job keeping track of the constant change of guidelines. The most enjoyable part of the job is hitting you targets at the end of each month in sales and quality.
Debt Collector and Payment Consolidator (Former Employee) – Dartmouth Ns – 28 December 2014
This company was based on collecting debts. I did enjoy helping clients to set up payment plans to pay off outstanding debts on credit cards and medical bills from the U.S. My coworkers at this job were okay but the culture of the workplace was far from positive and encouraging. It was a basic call center environment so i learned to speak with people on the phone, manage files on a computer, set up payment plans and manage clients payments. It was a good work experience overall.
Job Posting Only To Obtain Potential Candidates for Future Employment
Potentional Applicant (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 18 October 2012
I had applied for a position with the company in my city as the job description matched my work history, and I had worked for an insurance company (but in the life/ltd area) before. Came to the end of the interview, and found out the position was not a position - they didn't have any current openings. They were just gathering a list of potential candidates for potential future openings. Though I would have been willing to obtain the licence they eventually wanted had there been a position, I was not in the position to, nor willing to, spend the money to obtain a licence for something that I may or may not have been able to use since there was no guarantee they would have an opening any time soon.

Relationship Development Agent (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 4 July 2012
Allstate Corporation is a good company to work for. It is very sales oriented and can be stressful as sales quotas need to be met every month. However, it is also a company that offers a lot flexibility and my manager did not micro manage, which I thing is a good thing as it keeps everyone happy, end result being an increase in productivity
o Business Development Agent (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 November 2014
Learned a lot about sales and business reports. Being able to understand and provide insurance for those in need. Explaining different situations and circumstances to customers and making them happy. Being able to help in a time of need and making their situation better than it could have been.
Agent (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 5 February 2014
As a customer care agent for Allstate Insurance I am required to go into the system database every morning and login into our system. There it gives me a list of clients to call during my work day and review their insurance coverages and inform them of any gaps of coverage, I also call clients regarding payments, add new drivers onto clients policys, write new policies, emailing clients, working in a professional manner, and supplying excellent customer service.
The hardest part of my job is it is very face paced, learning to keep up was an experience but I have managed to create a balance for my days.
This company has allowed me to grow in many different ways as it allowed me to challenge myself .
Agent Assistant (Former Employee) – Windsor, Ont – 4 December 2011
The company was a high volume environment. I handled light office duties to simple coverage changes. I was provided all the necessary base trainning that was required (as I had no previous insurance knowledge). I was mentored by several managers who assissted in my growth.The managers that I dealt with had manerism and were very approachable. The company was fair and accomodating. They provided bonuses and incentives. Had I not moved I would have continued my employment with them.
