Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Self employed, make your own hours, be your own boss, generous commission schedule

Cons

District managers are constantly misrepresenting what the company offers and what they will do for you. It is NOT made clear that you will pay back every dollar they give you if you do not hit their top tier for production. If you have to pay back they want their money immediately and will send you to a collections company immediately if you don't pay. The collections company they use are thugs who will threaten you with lawsuits if you don't pay what they want.

Advice to Management

Be more honest with new hires and stop hiring people to hire them. It makes for a poor customer experience.

    Liability claims representative

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    They offer a flexible schedule. Co-workers are great. The job allows you the opportunity to help people and challenge yourself.

    Cons

    Overworked. Poor local management - supervisors and managers are totally out of touch. Lack of teamwork between claims reps and management. Lack of trust. Lack of ability to take a meaningful vacation due to not enough employees yet we're constantly told we're overstaffed. Not enough pay. The WORST benefits. The place feels abusive.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on treating employees fairly. Hire more or provide raises for increased responsibilities and work load.


  2. Very limited due to lack of management foresight, with increased rates and a contract that doesn't work in small markets

    Pros

    I cannot think of any

    Cons

    New contract is not "cookie cutter" for all markets, especially small town markets.
