Former Employee - Customer Srevice Representative in Chicago, IL

I worked at Allstate full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Being completely new to the insurance industry I was delighted to start with such a repitable company and one that realy value its employees! The training was extensive they really went out of their way to teach us the business and paid for all 26 of my property and casualty licenses. They pay very well and I absolutely have no complaints about the company, I wish I didnt have to quit.

Cons

Call centers are everchanging you must be adaptable to the changes and willing to do what it takes to get the job done, but thats in any position you hold you should have that approach.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit nickel and diming commission structures. It looked good early but those percentages keep getting chipped away.

    Take a hard look at the Sr Manager and Directors - they may not be all that you believe
