All about Service!

Here at Arbella, we’ve earned a reputation for having outstanding service thanks to our exceptional employees.

Customer Service Representative

We’re very proud of our 96% satisfaction rating, and it all starts with our fabulous Customer Service team. Our staff loves helping people, and when they can help a customer resolve an issue and leave them happy—well, there’s nothing better than that.

The goal among Customer Service’s leadership is to promote a fun, positive work environment for their teams. There are all kinds of team-building activities like volunteering in the community, holiday decorating contests, pot luck lunches, and more. It’s all about the team mentality: work as a team, grow as a team, and have fun as a team. Customer Service folks depend on one another, and the friendships they build can last a lifetime. Read more

“At Arbella, Customer Service has a great balance between work and fun. There are so many people who are just starting their careers and many experienced employees who are great resources for anything you need. Everyone here is so supportive and wants to see their coworkers succeed.” – Noreen, started at Arbella June 2016

Claim Service Center Representative

We’re committed to providing the very best claim service in the market, and our customers agree. The Claim Service Center (CSC) is the front line of contact with our customers and where all claims are set up and triaged.

“There’s no greater feeling than hanging up the phone and knowing you’ve made a difference. As a customer, filing a claim can be frustrating. But if you can help turn someone’s experience into a positive one and hear in their voice how grateful they are, it really sticks with you.” – Chris, started at Arbella February 2017

The folks in the CSC infuse as much fun as possible into their work day. The office celebrates customer service successes with pizza parties, pot luck lunches, and ice cream socials.

Employees feel valued and respected by their leaders and peers, and have developed a close-knit group that always welcomes new members.

“Not only are the people around you great support systems when working through challenges, but there are tons of other outlets in the office as well. From coloring boards to team building experiences to department outings, there are so many ways to recharge and get yourself ready to deliver more exceptional service.” – Lauren, started at Arbella February 2016

Working in the CSC develops a great deal of problem solving, critical thinking and communication skills. Learning how to multitask and be flexible in a high-energy, fast-paced environment helps to prepare them for the next step in their career.  It’s no wonder that it’s been nicknamed the “pipeline” of talent for the rest of the company!

    The interview process was a welcoming and friendly. First I met with HR and discussed benefits package and they asked me about my resume. Then I was taken up to shadow one of the reps for a half hour. Finally the two managers interviewed me about where I see myself in a few years, how I deal with adversity, etc.
