AFA Culture 

Colleagues at American Fidelity enjoy coming to work. The environment focuses on collaboration and openness. Executive management truly cares about Colleagues – and shows it through their actions, not just by saying the words. That’s what’s led American Fidelity being included on FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work for in America” nine times.

The Company president is known to randomly walk into a Colleague’s office and share a joke or stop and ask how you’re doing if he sees in you the hall. The executive team’s doors are always open. An online anonymous feedback board gives employees the chance to voice their opinions, and managers or other employees can submit responses to questions.

If you join AFA, a career development specialist is available to assist with creating a career plan, whether you want to grow in your current position or want to move to another part of the organization. Many of our positions are filled internally, allowing for Colleague growth. This strongly contributes to our high performance levels and Company success.  

 

Team-based Environment

At American Fidelity, you’re immediately immersed in the team-based culture. You’ll not only connect with your department members, but with people from around the Company as you participate in team-based projects.

These teams collaborate on projects such as recruiting, going green, new technology projects, social media, product development and many more.

From the start, you’ll be told how your role fits into the big picture and affects the overall growth of the Company. Incentives are offered for helping the Company reach its goals.

Candidates who pass this phase are then scheduled for additional skills testing and a face-to-face interview with the recruiter. The next step involves an interview with the hiring manager, and then usually a team interview to ensure fit with the whole team.

“When interviewing for a management position with American Fidelity earlier this year, I interviewed with members of the team I now manage, my peers in the department, peers of the hiring manager and even the CFO and the president of insurance operations. Having the opportunity to interview and be interviewed by such a range of individuals enabled both me and the organization to determine if I was a good fit," said Jim Ward, Life Valuation Actuary manager.

  • Strong communication skills
  • Excellent problem solvers
  • Flexibility
  • Team spirit
