    I have been working at Metro Public Adjustment as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Metro Public Adjustment Inc is the largest public adjusting firm in the USA. Their regional managers provide great weekly training sessions, corporate has a weekly conference call for all members to listen to (training). There is no limit as to how much you make working for the company. It all depends on how much work and time you put into it. You work on your own schedule and you are what you make it. You are an independent contractor.

    Cons

    Sometimes it take insurance companies longer to settle a claim than you anticipate.. This is due to the insurance company and not Metro. Metro works to try and complete the claim process as fast as possible. Homeowners are not always friendly. In today's society they find it hard to believe that you are actually there to help them make sure they understand their policy and make sure insurance pays them fairly. Many times on a (drive by) appointment chance you will get rejected as homeowners fear getting scammed. You should practice communication skills to help you speak with homeowners. You only get paid by claim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more adjusters to speed of the claim process.

    Pros

    Great training and supportive to get your Public Adjusters license, friendly people to work with

    Cons

    If you don't have a supportive warm market to get claims, you will never get claims because the corporate office distributes leads only to people that work out of the Corporate office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share corporate leads to get Training reps to Claims Rep so they can get claims from the referrals from the training claims.

    I worked at Metro Public Adjustment as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Like all Multilevel Marketing schemes they offer a "pie in the sky" amount of income that can only be achieved through some distorted view of reality. Your income is contingent on how many people you can recruit and how many claims you can write. While they give you tons of study material for a state licence most of the material the give is outdated or inconsistent with state laws. They have "perks" for the in group and offer breadcrumbs for everyone else. You literally have to buy yourself in their system

    Cons

    I am amazed that this company is still in business because of their negative reputation with the BBB, (they actually had a C- one at one point) tons of complaints from websites, former clients, and employees. They made the news a couple years ago and not in a good way. In a nutshell this company is the insurance version of Amway and you are a middle man for Metro. In addition, you have to spend a bunch of money (~$100-$600) to go their conventions for the higher ups to lecture you for 1-4 hours and they don't reimburse you for travel expenses most of the time the conventions are out of state.

    I have been working at Metro Public Adjustment full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    We are open and honest with our candidates. This is not a get rich quick scheme. It requires commitment and drive that many folks appear to be lacking today.. Your business growth is entirely up to you, with management support all the way. The only company I know of that promotes purely on performance, what a concept. The service we provide to our clients is excellent

    Cons

    Requires dedication (oops, that is the American work ethic, not a con)
    You have to study and get a state license ( Oops..that gives you credibility...again, not a con)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to move forward, We are Number One for a reason.

    Pros

    Training, compensation is good if you work hard, not a con or a scam and the only people that think that are those that are lazy and won't do the work.

    Cons

    There are employees that recruit from out of state which makes it really difficult. Make sure your recruiter is from the state you are in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please only allow recruiting within the state in which the recruiter lives and works in on a regular basis.

    I have been working at Metro Public Adjustment

    Pros

    Great people to work with, can learn in person or online, bonus programs all the time it seems, can make money even if you don't sign a claim, make more money when you do sign a claim, as far as cost goes you don't pay one lump sum, there are just several things involved with getting a state license that you have to pay. Take time off when ever you want. Work at your own pace.

    Cons

    You have to do the work if you want to get paid, you don't get paid just to show up, you only get promoted if you do the work, you create your own leads with the help and guidance of trainer. Oh wait, those are pros. Lets see cons, the main office can be a bit slow in times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In my opinion management needs to be a little quicker. Maybe some additional training.
