    I worked at Allstate part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I entered the company with no minimum prior knowledge of insurance, I was completely trained on how to use the Allstate system, how to speak with customers, take payments, etc. I liked this job because it helped me learn to deal with customers, which is vital.

    Cons

    I really liked working here I can't say there was anything bad about this company.

    Pros

    Handling claims can be very challenging. Allstate has good training, great benefits and decent pay

    Cons

    Sometimes workload can be very overwhelming and has a tendency to micro-manage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the employees that you hire that they can and will do the job.I'm pretty sure 25+ year employees know what they are doing. You will get better results without micro-managing
