Ahead of Earth Day, we’re proud to announce our partnership with National Park Trust. Dedicated to preserving the country’s national parks and to environmental education, National Park Trust is working to create a pipeline of future park stewards by connecting kids to parks. We’re committing $150K to the organization through 2025 to fund access and education programming for underserved youth.


Protecting the health and safety of our employees and communities including those considering a career with us is our highest priority. In response to COVID-19 our teams across the country are working from home. Our recruiting team has moved to a fully virtual model and all new hires are joining us remotely with virtual onboarding.

To date we've already delivered more than 6,800 meals!

    Business Outlook


    Incredible depth of knowledge in the sales org. Really, really solid products. Management is friendly, willing to coach, and helps you be more efficient. Benefits are good, even for an insurance company: day 1 healthcare at zero cost, no-hassle and no-questions assistance from HR if you don't understand a benefit class, and best in class retirement savings matching. On top of that, they're just good, hard-working people. Coworkers are largely very nice to work with, overall. Everyone is pretty set on exceeding goals, too. The company provides unlimited opportunities for education and advancement, both through higher education payments and through internal education. Swiftnet is rich with information for employees, as well, and the ERGs are fantastic resources and peer groups. Recognition, praise and pay are all there - I felt welcomed and valued from the moment I onboarded.


    There's a lot of "telephone" - and I don't mean our jobs. I mean, instead of communicating effectively and directly, people tend to hear, then reinterpret creatively, directives from management, or come up with new ones from whole cloth. It creates an environment where people struggle to find the actual benchmarks. I tend to ask management directly for guidance instead of collaborating with coworkers from other related, but separate, teams.

      Average Interview

      I applied online. I interviewed at Symetra (United States)


      This was a Very cordial and friendly process. I am in round two of a three-step process. Round one was voice-only Microsoft Teams, and the interviewer couldn't be nicer. Round two is with team members and I am researching potential questions.
