    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great boss who was helpful in providing feedback for my work. Very competitive pay with generous bonus package.

    Cons

    I would have liked a bit more training for the job. Much of it felt that I was just thrown into the position rather than being properly trained.

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

    Pros

    I worked as a recruiter for Farmers Insurance District Office in Granada Hills. It was a great experience. The District Manager really wanted me to learn and advance myself. He provided me with excellent direction and experience.

    Cons

    The farmers corporation has a strict quota for amount of agents the district has to put on but the district manager was so great it was not hard to meet this quota. He does everything to help you succeed in your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great experience! The district manager is very knowledgable and knows what he is doing. If you really want a job where you are going to learn and be able to work hard to get to where you want to be then this is a place to apply.

    Pros

    Will give you experience to pursue furthering a career in the insurance industry. This type of agency is only a stepping stone and builds a foundation to become an Allstate/State Farm/Farm Bureau owner.

    Cons

    High turnover. They typically high anyone. They target individuals without experience but have potential or motivated individuals.

    I worked at Farmers Insurance Group

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Many different advancement opportunities. Company attempts to create a fun atmosphere for their employees. Typical retirement plans.

    Cons

    Your typical cubical job. If you are placed on a good team work can be fun. However, like any other job if you don't get a good team it will reflect poorly upon you and makes day to day quite difficult.
