    You know in your heart the kind of person you want to be. The kind of life you want to live. Turn that dream into a reality. And if your dream involves caring about community, keeping promises and being in a position to really help people, then you and American Family Insurance would make a great team-a great "protector of dreams" team.


American Family Insurance – Why Work For Us?

At American Family Insurance, we’ve made it our mission to inspire, protect and restore dreams – for our customers, the communities we serve, and the outstanding employees and agents who support those groups every day.

We truly believe your dream is the most valuable thing you’ll ever own, because it shows who you can become. And when you dream fearlessly, you find yourself feeling happier, healthier and enjoying a richer life.

If your dream is to further your career – to apply your skills and knowledge at an organization that values hard work, innovation and a collaborative environment – we want to hear from you today.

Building on our dream: We got our start in 1927, and are now the nation's third-largest mutual property/casualty insurance company, ranking 373 on the Fortune 500 list*. Our products – auto, homeowners, life, business and farm/ranch insurance – are available exclusively through agents in 19 states. Additionally, our affiliates (The General, Homesite and AssureStart) provide options for consumers who want to manage their insurance matters directly over the Internet or by phone.

American Family understands that everyone has dreams, both on the job and when away from work. Our culture helps employees find balance so they can pursue both professional and personal goals. We do this through company sponsored training, a tuition reimbursement program, flexible work schedules and numerous other initiatives geared toward achieving your dreams.


By making the best use of all resources – energy, paper, water, etc. – American Family is protecting people, the environment and our policyholders’ premiums, as well as the many individual dreams made possible by such efficiency practices. Here are just some of the steps we've taken.

  • All of our owned facilities are ENERGY STAR rated, and several of our larger facilities have attained the prestigious ENERGY STAR certification.
  • We have implemented more than 50 energy saving solutions that, combined, are reducing greenhouse gas emissions by the equivalent of 1,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide a year.
  • Through private equity funds, we invest in clean technology companies from a broad range of sectors, including alternative energy, energy conservation, waste management, clean water and pollution reduction.

    I have been working at American Family Insurance full-time


    Great pay, flexible hours, great benefits, pension. Plenty of room to grow for those that work hard and show passion.


    Leadership is clueless. Top heavy with little connection to the front line workers. Stigma around execs.
