    I have been working at California Casualty full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It's a small atmosphere so not like a busy call center. You have time to work your claims. Unlike other companies, the call volumes and the workload is manageable. Even with their change to an all day queue system, I actually can't wait to be able to make my calls and do my work when I need to! There's other opportunities to grow as a claims adjuster here since you handle auto, injury and property claims. The variety makes the day go by fast. I actually have a great manager who knows her stuff. The other employees have been here a long time, so they've done their time and they have awesome experiences and knowledge. Sure, I've heard them talk about me, too, but once I've mastered their systems and handled the claims in a consistent way, I'm sure that will stop. Don't let it get to you. It's just a job and there's plenty of work to focus on. Time off is hard to get when competing with high seniority, but that comes with any company that someone is new to. Some of the employees have their kids stay with them at their desk, so this is a company that understands when parents are in a bind with daycare, etc. ~ you don't find that at other companies! The customers can be difficult, but this is an industry where people are upset and not always happy with your decision. As for the older customers, I find them a delight to talk with and they are the first ones to make me feel good about what I do for them. Also, the pay is great! Maybe not the benefits, but then, in today's work environment, what company is delivering awesome benefits anymore? This is a great change for someone who has done claims at other companies. You can bring your experience and build on it, once you get past their systems. If you're new, I would think this is a great place to learn, too. Every new adjuster struggled and felt overwhelmed their first 2 years. If you can get past that and focus on the work, you'll actually find some enjoyment in it.

    Cons

    Systems are outdated and hard to maneuver through. My only concern is it affects my body. Lots of repeat steps to accomplish something and it's taking its toll on the hands and arms. It's a small company so they don't have the means to improve their systems right now, but it does sound like an excuse when they say that every time. As employees, we don't like excuses any more than leaders like to hear them from their workers. At least acknowledge it and get a plan in place to work on or solve the problem in the future (even if it is a 2-5 year plan). Otherwise, you (the leaders) run the risk of being considered "part of the problem". I do miss having a company that supports getting your AIC or CPCU or SCLA. Wish there was some sort of incentive to pursue this, even if it was "performance based". Just like seniority earns you the pick of time off, I wish my performance would allow me the "pick" of classes the company would sponsor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just a plan for improving the systems.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at California Casualty.

    Interview Details

    Excellent process and on the ball! Their HR department is one of the best I've seen! I feel bad that they do all this work getting awesome employees, yet the managers do things that make the employees feel undervalued, so they leave. I am willing to bet that their HR department sees this but can't do anything about it.

In 1914 we started as a customer-owned company offering workers' compensation insurance to California's new and growing industries. In 1917 we began offering auto insurance, followed by home insurance two decades later.

In 1951, we pioneered what's now become an industry trend of affinity insurance programs when we received the endorsement of the California Teachers Association (CTA) to provide auto and home insurance to its members. Sixty years later we still serve CTA and its members and have expanded nationally with over 100 other endorsements. Our history is a rich... More
