Mission: To impact every collectible vehicle owner in the world in a positive and useful way.
It's all about passion. We have grown to be the global leader for collector car and boat insurance, but we're still just a family business built on a love for the hobby. Our passion drives us to keep improving our product and to give our clients the best service imaginable.
People trust us with their most prized possessions because we get it. It's all about memories and dreams: The '69 Camaro you wanted since you were a kid. The Chris Craft boat you inherited from your granddad. Even that vintage Triumph motorcycle you used to impress your future wife. We protect the physical connections to the best moments in your life.
Over the past year, Hagerty employees participated in the restoration of a 1967 Sunbeam Tiger. This past year, over 107 employees put in a total of 1,216 hours toward the complete restoration, and work has already begun on another employee restoration for a 1960 Plymouth Fury. These hands-on projects, totally unique to Hagerty, provide our employees with valuable restoration skills, enhancing their appreciation for the vehicles we protect.
Hagerty has grown from a small agency headquartered in the Hagerty family basement to the leading provider of collector car and boat insurance in the world. How did we get here? By hiring great people and inspiring them to do their best!
Our culture is shaped by the Hagerty Way, a series of maxims designed to make us successful, credible and accomplished in our market. It’s how we live, and it’s what makes Hagerty a great place to work.
To support Hagerty's success and culture, we provide all employees with resources for acquiring the knowledge and skills to improve job performance, increase employment opportunities and pursue personal development. Through our own Hagerty University, we offer classes like Public Speaking, Car Basics, Engine Guts & Glam and more. We also train and pay for employees to achieve insurance licensing and provide them with hands-on projects.
Hagerty has a brand-new employee fitness center with top-of-the-line exercise equipment and professionally trained instructors. We want our employees to be happy and healthy, which is why we offer a $150 wellness reimbursement benefit. Hagerty will even pay for entry fees if you sign up for any races!
We also empower employees to serve the community in a way that is important to them personally by organizing opportunities and giving employees sixteen hours of paid volunteer time. Additionally, our Corporate Social Responsibility program contributes approximately 10% of the company’s net revenue towards four areas of focus: corporate giving, civic leadership, hobby & sport and ecology.
What else makes Hagerty unique? Your birthday is considered a holiday, there is free ice cream on Fridays and all employees receive a complimentary roadside assistance package. We are headquartered in beautiful downtown Traverse City, where we are surrounded by water, an abundance of good food, wineries, microbrews, festivals and shopping!
We've implemented cutting-edge technology and work practices, but we're proud of our roots as a family-run business, so we strive to maintain a small-company feel. Our vision is to impact every collectible vehicle owner in the world in a positive and useful way. Do you want to be part of our dynamic team and explore all that we have to offer?

I have been working at Hagerty Insurance full-time (More than 8 years)
Ample opportunity to learn and grow in a fast pace business with a great culture and genuine people. Traverse City location provides great lifestyle. Excellent benefits. Competitive pay.
Not for the faint of heart. Don't let the kind, genuine culture fool you. There is plenty of support and help along the way, but this is ambitious growth company that expects big things for the future. That is fitting for most, but it can also be unsettling for those that don't thrive in that kind of environment. If you are curious, driven, open to change, a life long learner, and genuinely care for others, you'll fit right in. If this doesn't sound like you, it's probably not the right fit.
Advice to Management
You can't carter to everyone. Stay the course. This is a great place to work.
I applied online. I interviewed at Hagerty Insurance.
Met with recruiter via email and phone many times. The recruiter asked a lot of questions regarding my background, which was fine, as I am sure we both wanted to ensure I was a fit for the job. Had a group interview on the phone and thought it went well, but unfortunately I was not what they were looking for- I wish I had received feedback as to why no job offer, as I had thought it went well.
