Modern day slavery, they work you to death with cases, don't train you properly for the work/workload!

Claims Examiner (Current Employee) Woodlawn, MD

ProsJob security- it's considered an essential position- in case of a govt shutdown, you will still get paid, though it may get delayed.

ConsTerrible training program, unprofessional, deceiving in the hiring process as far as what expectations and responsibilites of job are, the moral is very low, employees are "stuck" at SSA.

Advice to Senior ManagementRestructure the entire classroom training, hire more professional workers, fire or retire workers who don't produce.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
