    I have been working at Assurant full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been with the company for almost 13 years and LOVE it here. I've always been treated with the upmost respect and have promoted up to different postions in the company. The place is more like a second home than a job to me. My coworkers are alwasy nice and friendly. The managment staff really goes out of their way to make sure we have a good work enviorment. Right now they are working on improving our break room so that we have a nice place to go and relax during our breaks. They bring food in for us to enjoy and have even recently brought a food truck our site. There is always something fun and exciting going on.

    Our benefits are really good with medical, dental and vision all starting from the day you start working, along with the ability to start earning paid time off.

    Cons

    Some calls can be stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Assurant.

    Interview

    The hiring team at Assurant made me clear about the position before the interview process which made me comfortable with the process. The interview process went smoothly and the team also shared few experiences about their work and culture.
