Our values guide our decisions each day, and reflect what’s important to us. Not only do we want to be a business people can trust—but rely on and be proud to call an employer or insurer. So we celebrate different approaches and ways of thinking, and more often than not, those different perspectives are what lead to our growth and success. With a diverse work force, we all benefit — and so do our customers.

We foster an environment where our employees can contribute to their fullest potential and feel a part of the team. Our Employee Resource Groups that provide tools for professional growth and interactive cultural celebrations are just one piece of our open, supportive culture.

And, if you ask our employees why they like working here, many will say without missing a beat: the people. We work hard as a team, and our employees are invested in each other’s success as much as their own.

Do you love—and we mean absolutely love—math?

So do we. Of course, we’re an insurance company so it comes with the territory. We analyze everything.

As an analyst, you’ll feel right at home here. Our sharp, statistically savvy analysts are putting their programming and quantitative skills to the test every single day—modeling, forecasting and even predicting catastrophic events. They make our products—and our status as an industry leader—even stronger.

We’re always on the lookout for talented employees who can comb through our data, identify unique trends and tell compelling stories that help us find ways to continue growing as a company. That’s because Progressive is a place where you can apply your love of math, challenge yourself—and love what you do.

Almost everything that happens here happens with help from our information technology team.

In fact, our intelligent, hard-working programmers and developers are putting their skills to the test every single day. That’s because Progressive is a place where people come to work with market-changing technology. It’s a place where you’ll be programming in various codes and applications.

We offer a variety of roles from application programmers, business intelligence developers, system test engineers, IT managers to architects, and security analysts.  And this is a place where your job is more than just a job—it’s an extension of who you are, both inside and outside these walls. It’s a place where you can challenge yourself, see what you’re truly made of—and love what you do.

    I have been working at Progressive Insurance full-time for more than 3 years


    Non competitive atmosphere, very laid back the company's main concern is providing good customer service, great benefits and job development opportunitites


    If you are a very active person, you may need to change your routine to a more laid back one because you are sitting down all day

    Claims Adjuster Trainee Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Progressive Insurance.

    Interview Details

    I was referred for the job by a current employee. I filled out the online application and received an email a few days later thanking me for submitting an application and that I should be on the lookout for an email containing next steps soon. I already knew from the person who referred me that there would be an online assessment. This assessment contains some math and personality questions. I received an email with instructions for the online assessment a few days later and was given about a week to complete it. The math was pretty basic--they would have a list of numbers and you had to determine what the next number would be in the sequence. They also had different charts and would ask questions like "If this trend were to continue what would you expect the company's profits to be in 2 months". For the personality questions--they basically want to see how you would handle different scenarios at work. Don't second guess yourself. Make sure you research the company so that you can know the best way to answer these questions. ( It may help to read each question aloud saying "If I were working at Progressive I would..."). After I submitted my assessment I received an email the following day saying that I passed and was given a date and time for my phone interview. I researched a lot of behavioral questions in advance and made sure to have examples prepared ahead of time. The interviewer was very nice and was easy to speak to. She asked me a little about my resume and then we jumped into the STAR questions. I was a little nervous at first but I got into the flow of things after the 1st STAR question. I was glad that I had prepared my answers in advance because a lot of the questions she asked were similar to what I had written down! After the interview she said that I would hear back within a few days either way.. I didn't really know how to take this since she didn't really say whether I had passed or not. I thought I did a really good job but she simply thanked me and said that she'd be in touch. About two hours later she called me back saying that I had passed the phone interview and that I would be moving on! We scheduled an in-person interview and she told me I would be given more STAR questions during the next interview. She also gave me recommendations on how I could better prepare for the in person interview. I was initially scheduled for an in person interview, but at the last minute the recruiter had to cancel because of a problem at one of the local offices. Currently waiting to reschedule.
