    Current Employee - Collision Adjuster in Brea, CA

    I have been working at Mercury General full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people really make you feel at home and are very approachable. You are always encouraged to move up if you work hard and are rewarded for your hard work.

    Cons

    If you go to claims, then things get really bad if the branch becomes understaffed. They make you do at least 3 times the work until they fill in the empty seats with new adjusters. You are still expected to meet company goals regardless of the understaffing. Depending on which claims branch you go into after training, expect to do at least twice the work once you arrive. It's worse if you become a collision adjuster rather than a comprehensive adjuster, and the pay difference is only a couple of bucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting people out before you have a chance to fill in that person's position. It's not fair for everyone else left in the branch to take up the load once someone leaves. There's already enough work on our plate as it is.

Named after the Roman god of commerce and travel, Mercury General hopes to combine the two. The company is the parent of a group of insurers, including Mercury Casualty Company, that write automobile insurance for all risk classifications in about a dozen states. Plain old private auto insurance accounts for more than 80% of premiums written. However, Mercury General also sells commercial vehicle insurance and a bit of homeowners, mechanical breakdown, and fire insurance. The company sells its policies through roughly 5,700 independent agents -- with more than 1,100 each... More
