Untapped Potential
Recruiter (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKNovember 13, 2014
Pros: great people.
Cons: cold calling
If you are up for a dedicated, un-tethered, start... Farmers Insurance would be a decent way to go. Also, must mention, a sales and marketing aptitude and management potential/experience are a must.
I simply did not have the finances to support the launch of my own insurance business, so I helped out as a recruiter and mini-IT department.
There is good – more... money in insurance, not easy, but good. – less

Low key and easy going staff and management
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Newhall, CANovember 13, 2014
Pros: low key and easy going staff and management
Cons: monotonous, repetitive skill set
I was able to meet and work with many types of people as well as gain a better understanding of the insurance industry. I was responsible for giving future clients accurate quotes for home, auto, and life insurance and when applicable commercial insurance. I also submitted claims involving damage from car accidents, floods, fires and earthquakes.

I – more... received the most enjoyment when I was able to help victims displaced as a result of the Northridge earthquake in California. I was able to help them take photos, catalog the destruction of property coordinate repairs and the replacement of property. It was a long, arduous and at times heartbreaking task. Watching the resiliency of these people who had lost everything was extremely rewarding. Watching people come together in support of one another, being part of that support team, taught me lessons in humanity that I will take with me wherever I go. – less

Demanding job
Insurance and Financial Services Agent (Former Employee), Rochester, MNNovember 11, 2014
Demanding job. Hard to balance work and personal life. Ability to set your own schedule is a plus, but most weekends are spent in the office.

Senior Service Advocate/Underwriter (Former Employee), Austin, TexasNovember 11, 2014
Pros: the good things were most of the people you worked with, some of the free snacks or lunches and bonuses.
Cons: paying for expensive heath care, micro management and the way you were treated by most of the agents.
Typical call center environment, except the agents and customer service reps for the agents could talk or yell at you anyway they wanted and the company did nothing about it. There were a few out there that were very pleasant to work with and made your day. I learned how to underwrite a risk based on information and photos, however when the agents didn't – more... like your answer, they were rude and hateful. – less

Farmers Insurance - A good place to work
Project Manager (Former Employee), Houston, TXNovember 10, 2014
Pros: pto, great co-workers, casual dress
Cons: lack of transparency
Through my time at Farmers I was able to work with some very hardworking and honest people. The environment is somewhat relaxed but it is a larger corporation. The benefits were good and the Paid Time Off program was nice. The only downside to working at Farmers is some of the local managers are not very transparent with their actions and seem to be – more... there simply because they were friends of the hiring manager. However, this was not the norm from my viewpoint but it did happen on a somewhat limited basis. – less

Sales and CSR (Former Employee), Cedar Hill, TXNovember 10, 2014
Pros: feeling fullfilled at the end of the day.
Cons: finding time for lunch and very tired eyes at the end of the day.
Run reports, answer phone and work on problems with policies, take payments, write or re-write policies, send out reminders for payments due. The hardest part was getting knee deep in issues and trying to take care of all of them in a reasonable amount of time. Enjoyed talking with clients and being able to answer their questions and help them decide – more... what they needed. – less

Slow Pace
Insurance Agent (Former Employee), Arlington, TXNovember 5, 2014
Pros: luncheons with co-workers on occasion
Cons: cold calls, lack of training, slow paced days.
For the majority of the day, I was given lists of cold calls and sat in the office continuously leaving messages on answering machines.
Lack of training and support prevented success within the company. Nice, friendly team members; not the ideal career for me.

Property Claims Representative (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TXNovember 4, 2014
The job can be very stressful at times when multiple claims are scheduled and when backend work comes in. Time management is extremely important. The management at Farmers is amazing and they want you to be happy outside of work as well as within your job. Everyone within the company is so nice and willing to help when needed. They are focused on your – more... personal development and want nothing but success for you. – less

Special Claims Representative (Former Employee), La Mirada, CANovember 3, 2014
I was involved with handling new claims each day. A typical day would be to make phone calls to insureds and claimants to process and settle the claim. This also involved several hours on the computer. I would make appointments with both parties to take statements and photos of their vehicles. For each claim, I to determine liability by taking statements – more... for parties involved and witnesses. Furthermore, I would do scene investigations and pick up police reports if available. I can't think of anything that was the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable was to satisfy claimants by settling their claims in a timely manner. It's very rewarding to see claimants happy about their car being repaired or their injury claim being settled. – less
