Customer Service & Sales Careers

USAA operates four customer service and sales centers in Phoenix, AZ; Colorado Springs, CO; Tampa, FL; and San Antonio, TX.

We focus on two main areas: banking and insurance. In banking, you might start as a credit card customer service associate and later explore areas such as mortgage and consumer lending. In insurance, you’ll handle questions on our property and auto insurance lines, as well as apply contract knowledge. Whether you’re helping a service member or a family member, every call you handle makes a difference and provides a real sense of satisfaction.

This is one of the largest business areas at USAA, with many ways to advance. You can learn additional products, add new responsibilities or move from insurance to property to specialty products, for example.

    I have been working at USAA full-time (More than 8 years)


    EVERYTHING ties to the mission statement. Everything. Usaa has an amazing chemistry and awesome corporate culture that are truly irreplicable.

    Benefits are excellent including a sizable annual bonus for all employees, free gym and onsite clinics, 1:1 401k matching up to 8%, education card to pay for education expenses, and the list goes on...


    It can be a challenge to “get off the phones” but at the same time qualified, dedicated employees will find their place within the organization. And hey it beats the alternative.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees do what the do best every day-take care of the members. Continue to encourage development and help employees find their calling within USAA.
