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.

    Pros

    Paid time off, paid holidays, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Management is terrible. You are trained to work independently then they micromanage you to death. Claim inventories are out of control and extremely stressful. Even with the best attitude the job will mentally drain you. Over half the people you talk to are pissed at you because of the way someone else treated them in the company and then it is your job to fix it. They say claims is just a starting point and they'll move you but its a lie. There's a high turnover and the people who stay are numb and over worked.

    Pros

    The ability to work from home, if your boss lets you, which is dependent on if your boss likes you or not.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment, hemorrhaging both claims adjusters and agents. Management is only concerned with themselves and their pet projects, no real direction.

    Advice to Management

    Look for a new company to work for.
