    I worked at Assurant full-time

    Pros

    Good 401K, so so health benefits.

    Cons

    People are very passionate about the loss of use of their phones. If you have thick skin and can keep up with the ever changing job requirements, and like to be assigned shifts via a shift bid, then this jobs for you. Be warned, per Supervisors words, it is a "Very toxic workplace. "

    Advice to Management

    Lazy management promotes lazy supervisors. Your company boasts acting with integrity. Sadly, you do not. Your most reliable/dependable employees are being driven away because you refuse to invest in them. A happy work force will guarantee you happy employees. Change the way you treat people.
