At Amica you are overworked and underpaid. The work never stops coming for the first 6 months you are exempts thus qualifying for overtime however, they are very particular about OT they do not want you to put on for OT, but expect all the work they give you to be completed. They place you in areas where the cost of living is extremely high and they do not adjust your salary. As an adult they expect for you to get a roommate to survive. A lot the work they give you is time limit busy work. They are understaffed so as an adjuster you can end up driving over 100 miles in a day for an appointment and still have 20+ activities to complete by the end of the day. That leaves you no time to take a lunch or break which is required by law with needing to work OT which they don't want to pay you for. IT's a losing situation. I literally work to afford to go to work, and I can barely afford to go to work. The concept of work life balance that they promote is completely fraudulent.
