    I have been working at Farmers Insurance Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They do an extensive amount of training and pay for your testing for licensing.

    Cons

    You better be hungry and ready for high pressure sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really don't have any criticism of upper or lower management. I believe they too are also under much pressure to perform according to the new platform. They are all in the business to make money, after all.

    Pros

    Farmers Insurance will take the time to train you, as a District employee, so that you will always have the experience to take with you.

    Cons

    The fact that each District Manager has the authority to establish their own Policies and Procedures, does cause a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Farmers Management should spend a little more time in the field, getting to know the District Staff.

    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pretty easy job, but very busy. i would recommend the job for sure, but you might as well train for your own licence.

    Cons

    The cons are that its very busy and the pay is not that high. Also sometimes you are left in the office alone and most people want to talk directly with the agent so its a bit uncomfortable.
