    I worked at Fred Loya Insurance Agency, Inc. part-time

    Pros

    The schedule was very flexible and worked around my at home schedule

    Cons

    Not really much skill involved, or necessarily needed.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is, that as a company the daily functions of each employee's assignment be alternated. This way everyone is learning how to do new things and grow within the company. As well as getting out of their comfort zone.

    I worked at Fred Loya Insurance Agency, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    The pay for experienced claims personnel is on the higher end of the spectrum for insurance professionals in this geographic market.

    Cons

    Outdated claims operating systems, the inability to make simple decisions without extreme scrutiny and approval from upper management, terrible benefits (time off is not the industry standard), and directives are often not translated to all personnel changing often with no real justification.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade the operating systems! This would drastically improve efficiency for your employees. Offer adequate training (especially to professionals new to the industry) to avoid extra-contractual obligations and the headaches that come along if those files must be reassigned to a higher level. Bottom line: invest more into the talent of your employees and streamline upper management - there are too many cooks in the kitchen.

    Pros

    You have a job in El Paso.

    Cons

    Lets begin. Five years I've put up with staying past the time i was expected, bonuses taken away if your 5mns late, management doesnt even let you go to the restrooms. They over work every employee and their motto is "ur salary, if u dont like it quit". Only reason i stayed was for a Five year bonus I was suppose to get in march. Two weeks ago we got an email saying they are taking away this "Discretionary" Bonus. Thanks for taking advantage of the hard dedicated workers you have Fred Loya. You know we all need the job, so you take advantage of your own people running your business.

    Limited lunch or break time. The lunch room is quite small there is a limited space for about 60 + employees.
    Not flexible with school schedules.
