No one ever grows up wanting to be an insurance agent!
Manager (Former Employee) – Ontario – 16 April 2013
Allstate is a classless organization at best and potentially mean spirited at its worst. They should spend less money buying an award to misrepresent that they are a "top 50" employer and invest in some training to advance their managers
Its a great place to work you are well treated and looked after
Technical Support Analyst (Current Employee) – Strabane, ON – 15 December 2012
Allstate is a great place the management is really approachable and helpful. If you happen to be struggling in areas they sit you down and try to work out whats going wrong and how they can work around it and help you improve. The co workers are also very good friendly helpful people. I would have to say the most enjoyable part of my job is knowing you helped solve the customers problem. I cant really say anything to fault this Company there very fair and always try and help where they can so you are never stuck or there is nothing the managers or colleagues don't try to help you if you find your having a problem.
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

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.
