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

Former Employee - Claims Adjuster in Louisville, KY

I worked at Allstate full-time (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.

    Current Employee - Human Resources in Northbrook, IL

    I have been working at Allstate full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Culture is great, nice benefits and perks for the employees. Internal movement options are definitely available. Home Office is a great place to work at with tons of employee resource groups, speaker events and training opportunities.

    Cons

    Parking sucks but start earlier (before 7:45) and you can avoid that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more visible in all employee settings: ie. cafeteria, speaker events, individual departments. Us millenials want to feel wanted and noticed whether or not you actually do. The appearance goes along way. With all of that said, the management here is more visible and active than any other company I have worked at. I just like to see more.
