Claims adjuster - just wasn't the career for me!

Former Employee - Claims Adjuster  in  Louisville, KY
Former Employee - Claims Adjuster in Louisville, KY

I worked at Allstate full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good pay and benefits, especially PTO. All benefits active @ hire date. I had great coworkers. Company has integrity - they really do strive to take care of their customers. Extensive training provided.

Cons

Extremely high volume of claims, constantly felt behind, like I would never catch up. Dealing with angry, frustrated claimants all day was emotionally & mentally exhausting. Sitting in a cubicle, looking at a computer screen all day got old pretty fast, too.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more claims adjusters! Especially for injury claims. Having such a high volume of claims makes it difficult for adjusters to do quality work on them.

    Pros

    Good training and professional development opportunities. The company also offers flexible schedule options.

    Cons

    There is quite a lot of nepotism and bureaucracy. Promotions and incentives are mostly based on who you know and/or who you are related to instead of performance and merit.
