    Pros

    Real-world business application
    Competitive hiring process
    Hands-on work
    Interns are treated like they are full-time employees instead of just being there to staple papers

    Cons

    Overall, the experience was nothing but beneficial for me. I learned in-depth about the business and developed as a professional.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide interns with the opportunity to work on real projects. The accountability is important for development of employees.

    Pros

    Lots of OT available on some teams. Laid back atmosphere. Management generally okay. Benefits are good if you actually work for Allstate and not through a temp service.

    Cons

    Most of the customer service reps and claim processor jobs are through the temp service, Kelly Services. Most of these positions are strictly temporary and will not be temp-to perm. While working for the temp service there will be NO benefits and management will treat you as disposable, however if you do a good job and you repeatedly apply for positions through Allstate it is possible to get hired on.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the temp service crap out. Make all of your workforce your employees. I know you're trying to save money but you're just inviting ghetto people who do not care about the company in.

    I worked at Allstate full-time

    Pros

    Good training, good people who worked there, management was helpful and useful.

    Cons

    Once a month weekend work, most vacation time during holidays unable to be taken off due to lack of seniority, absolute focus on insured/claimant contact became a pain along with extreme high expectations. On the phone with pissed off drivers and just overall annoying people.
