Productive and positive work environment
Account Executive (Current Employee), Bellevue, WA – February 15, 2014
Cons: no benefits, such as healthcare, 401k, etc
Daily tasks were to quote, deliver, and sell. It takes 10 "no's" for one good sale. I learned to under promise and over deliver. Managing office was never an issue, even if that means being alone with 2000+ clients book of business. I would make sure each customer got the proper attention and customer satisfaction. The hardest part on the job is managing – more... time wisely, when out on hold with one call….deciding what I should do in the meantime to make time more effective and productive always. Most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people and selling not only product but value of the company. – less

Not stressful but very productive. Started early and finished at a good hour. Management was great when I worked for my female supervisor, a wonderful lady.

The most memorable part of my job was when we did an employee - team booster competition. FUN... – less

Pros: in-house tim hortons
Cons: location is way up north, difficult for employees who do not drive
A typical day at work starts at 8:30 and runs until 4:30. We get a 45 minute lunch break. Management is very approachable and co-workers are easy to work with. Hardest part of the job would be at crunch time (end of promotions for agents) and we find ourselves understaffed due to absenteeism or vacations. Most enjoyable part of the job is being able – more... to help clients. – less
I worked there over 20 years ago and it was one of the best places to work.

We had pot luck lunches throughout the year and it was great because we all came from various – more... backgrounds. What a joy. – less

State Farm is a great company to work for. I learned so much about insurance and office work, gained much experience and knowledge about many different things. My co-workers are great to be around; they're fun, outgoing and simply amazing! The hardest part of the job is keeping up with everything when it's a busy day, many customers call in for quotes – more... which becomes pretty hectic but still is a fun task to do. The most enjoyable part of this job is putting the insurance information into the system. – less
Customer Service (Current Employee), Claremont, CA – July 17, 2014
Pros: easy going atmosphere
Cons: work with family
My typical day is usually directing phone traffic, assisting customers whether it is a concern, opening a new policy, paying a bill and so on. On fridays I normally deposit money from the week.
Working here has helped me learn how to be a communicator even though that is something I am always improving on. I have learned how to fix problems and proper – more... phone etiquette. I continue to learn new things every day.
My management is firm yet relaxed. When assistance is needed from them they are always here to help.
My co-workers are like family. We all lend a hand when someone needs help.
The hardest part of my job is when I dont know how to solve a problem or I get a fussy client. But I just inform them that I will gather information in attempt to fix any situation that needs fixing.
The most enjoyable part of my job is my co-workers and clients. I enjoy talking with people. – less
