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

Productive and fun workplace, impressive facilities and in-house Tim Horton's
Life Insurance Policy Administrator (Current Employee), Aurora, OnJanuary 22, 2013
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

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

Customer Service/Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), mississauga, onJuly 24, 2012
Pros: free beverages
Cons: short breaks
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

Claims Manager (Former Employee), San Jose, CAOctober 17, 2014
Pros: great positive working environment. reasonable workload, and excellent management.

I have nothing but positive things to say about State Farm. The upper level management provided excellent leadership as well as positive guidance. This company helped me to become a great leader of people. I was given the opportunity to mentor and develop young team players and I was able to make decisions without worrying about negative feedback. I – more... was trusted to do my job and I was able to help others to achieve success. – less

Tough Spot
Agent Aspirant (Current Employee), LGPOctober 16, 2014
Pros: great team
Cons: no benefits/low compensation
Being an aspiring agent is very a very tough line of work. The main difficulty of the position is the low compensation rate.

From day to day an agent aspirant makes several cold calls in order to build book of business for the agent.

Co-workers are great at my particular office.

Hardest part of my position is the insurance market as a whole has become – more... a total commodity. – less

Unhappy with results
Insurance Sales Representative (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VAOctober 16, 2014
Pros: took all testing= answered phones and took messages
Cons: never got a chance to write policies
Employer needed an agent ASAP. One employee left for family reasons and another was covering for a temp office. Agent needed someone ASAP and said a lot of untrue things in persuading me to come work for him. I did.. 2 months later when employee covering for temp store came back to office i was let go.
Employer also had some important pending engagements – more... that would leave office under staffed for a lot of the summer. Vacations are over, and so is my job. – less

Fast Paced and Taxing but also rewarding
Receptionist and Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Maspeth, NYOctober 14, 2014
Pros: generally good work load
Cons: office politics
I would go into work at 2:30 pm every other day. The work schedule was very flexible and perfect for a high school student. I would sit in the front of the office to greet clients and help them with any basic billing or insurance questions that they might have had, I was trained to use the State Farm data base and was also helped with other basic computer – more... skills as well. I was a receptionist for State Farm so I was also picking up incoming phone calls and directing them to the agents. I helped the agents with any paperwork and dealing with other insurance companies as well. I was also able to help maintain a clean and neat work environment. My co-workers were a great team of people who were there every step of the way and they were willing to answer any and all of my questions. The management at my particular location was slightly lacking but the office as a whole was strong. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the in office personal problems. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to help customers fully and thoroughly due to the exceptional training I received from my peers. – less
