    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.

    I worked at Metro Public Adjustment part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They are a real company that will train you to be a public adjuster, there is a lot of up front money you will need to invest before you can be certified as an adjuster.

    Cons

    The number one reason I left was because they are giving misleading information (in my opinion) on how they sell their service. The truth is, that the consumer would be much better off if they dealt with their insurance company directly without their service. They tell the customer that they can get much more money from the insurance company if they use their service; but they take 40% of the winnings for themselves, leaving the consumer to scramble around to fine someone willing to do the job at a much lower price. This means you will be skimping on materials and labor to cover the damage. Also, they were asked several time in training "Will the customer have enough money left over to repair the damage?" And their generic reply, is that "we haven't run into that situation yet". But the truth is that it happens all the time. And to top it off, many insurance companies will want to verify the completed work to make sure the money went to repairs, otherwise it would be considered insurance fraud and could wind you up in prison for not using the money properly. So in a nutshell, they are getting you excited about all the potential money you will be making, and that the service is needed and "helps" the consumer, when in fact you are hurting the consumer and selling false promises. I think it's an unethical way to do business, but unfortunately it is all legal to do this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and up front with what will actually happen if the deal goes through with your tentative and current employees and customers. No more lies such as "We have never run into a problem like that"

    If management expects a well dressed, professional employee then the pay should be better.
