Good place to work with great people

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I learned all of my insurance experience at Wawanesa, so I'm thankful to them for that. The company was very good to their employees and made a lot of friends that I still see.

Claims department lacked leadership

Things have hopefully changed; the company as a whole seemed to be run like a “mom and pop” shop as opposed to a medium sized, multinational insurance company. Claims department was turned over to an ineffective and inept team of transplants from another insurer and it quickly became apparent why that company had cut them loose - the department became toxic. Subsequent horribe engagement surveys were likely why most were removed or shuffled off to different departments.

Pros

Great benefits, pay and pension.

Cons

(At the time) poor leadership, toxic work environment, long hours, no backup - you’re on your own.

Management was poor

It was a great company overall. Training was not enough because I wanted to learn more about the position before I start. Management was very poor also and that is why most people quit.

Pros

Cons

Great Management Support and Room for Advancement

Flexible work hours here, so ability to pick what start time works best for you. Each Adjuster handles his/her own file and follows them through to completion. Face to face interaction as well as over the phone with Insureds. Open concept of the office sometimes is a downside as there's not a lot of privacy with calls. Satisfaction in handling a claim and putting Insured's back on thier feet and allieviating thier stress.

Pros

Hour long lunches

Cons

Co-workers are close and office can sometimes get really loud.

Adjuster

Very high file load, HR is good but management is fairly unqualified the few that are save the day. Heather the trainer has to fix many managers mistakes.

Cons
