    Damage Inspector Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bensalem, PA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Metro Public Adjustment (Bensalem, PA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Short Summary: Group interview where you have the option of buying into an image, of a Multi-level marketing project, as an independent contractor attempting to be licensed as a Public adjuster. This licensed through AAPIA, not the state, which Metro Public Adjusters is a founding member of. Every person you recruit or train is a part of your pay ‘pyramid’, while you feed the ‘pyramid’ you are a part of; even if you decide to do actual adjusting work.

    Long version:

    Using indeed, found a listing "Damage Inspector", applied. Was contacted back shortly thereafter via indeed to email another email address 'Eastern PA Group'. Sent the time I choose to the new email address, replied with dress casual.

    Show up for the 'interview' at the correct time. Receptionist staff decided to unprofessionally vent about how bad it is working there in front of the group of people waiting.

    An expending group is shuffled into a small meeting room.

    Turns out to be a group sales presentation for you to buy into their business concept or multi-layer marketing project. The position is for Damage Inspector which you have to be trained for, which at this time will cost up front 40 dollars. The goal is at the end of training is to become an Independent contractor which is Public Adjuster Licensed through AAPIA which they are a ‘Founding Member’ of.

    The recruiter, sales person, presenter provides ‘applications’ to fill out and a ‘how well was my presentation, would you consider a 1:1 interview’ sheets. The presentation itself generally explains what a Damage Inspect, Claims Writer, Public Adjuster is. It quotes a deal of information from out of the state you are actually in. This however is rather irrelevant since you are required to confirm inside the state you are in. They have a 30 day money back guarantee on the 40 dollars ‘buy in’ however the sessions are every other week on the weekends. You will make 10 to 20 dollars per claim you write while under training. They will refund the ‘buy in’, the finger printing and exam costs if you pass the exam after training.

    Interview

    After reviewing a presentation, I was interviewed at the Corporate Office in Bensalem, PA. Although my previous career of more than 25 years had been in IT, the interviewer illustrated the ease of transitioning into a totally different career field. Part of the process involved recognizing how skills acquired in the IT "world" could be used within the Public Adjusting field.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Metro Public Adjustment.

    Interview

    The interesting part about this company is that they ask you for a resume and never look at it. All they seem to care about is your signature on their ICA form because the recruiter gets paid a small amount of money. Either the same day or the day after they start interrogating you for people that might be interested in a "policy review" I personally find this process to be borderline harassment. When you go through the process you will see what I mean.

    The first contact was on the phone. I was given all the information I needed to research the company. Then we met in person and I was given all the information I needed to decide if this was a good fit for me in a 15 minute presentation. Once I signed up I went straight to orientation that same day.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Metro Public Adjustment (Broomall, PA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    It was a group interview. A 15 minute presentation about Public Insurance Adjusters and Metro. I came back the next day and filled out the paperwork and got started. There is weekly training on Metro's standard operating proceedures and also training to help me pass the state exam. I had to pay $40 to become a contractor for metro, but with the paid training I earned that back on day #2. I also had to pay for the state exam $40 and fingerprints $40 but when I completed training Metro reimbursed me for those costs!

    Claims Adjuster Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Metro Public Adjustment (Manasquan, NJ) in September 2012.

    Interview

    They stuck everyone in the basement of an office building and gave what I can only describe as the most boring and uninspiring power point presentation I have every experienced. All of the staff seemed like older has been or younger never was salesmen/women. The presenter kept talking about how every job he goes on he finds all of these things that everyone else missed because he is so smart and good at his job. Any way, after he finished blowing smoke up his own ass he proceeded to explain that if you just lay a little money out now, you can get certified and become highly successful. They will hire anyone who sits through the process, which makes sense because after doing a little research I found out that the company is a multi level marketing scam. You can read up on what that means if you are interested, but long story short it means that they are a slightly more legal version of a pyramid. And if you check the reviews of their company on line, pretty much every customer talks about how they got fucked.
