    I have been working at Johns Eastern Co. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Johns Eastern has excellent benefits to include health, retirement, etc. The Norfolk, VA area manager as well as the supervisor are knowledgeable and offer superb training, advice, and direction. It is an excellent work environment.

    Cons

    The company is an independent adjusting firm, so the claims come from multiple carriers. Consequently, the claim volume can be exorbitant at points.

    I have been working at Johns Eastern Co. full-time

    Pros

    The company promotes from within and encourages professional growth. They treat their employees like a family and not like they are just a body to fill a position. They invest time in their employees.

    Cons

    Claims adjusting can be stressful and case load can be high at times. Flex time would be nice and the ability to work from home without having to use a personal day would be great.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your people. Open up communication between management and staff a bit.

    Family environment, stable company, in business for 70 years, strong reputation, growing, offers ability to advance career

    At times can be a stressful environment but that is part of the claims adjusting career...not just Johns Eastern company

    Continue to strengthen training program and continue to look for ways to strengthen technology.

    I worked at Johns Eastern Co. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Short commute, easy job. They do pay for you to get your adjusters license. The system is easy to navigate.

    Cons

    Drama, cliquey. It seems like the system goes down every single day. The manager is pretty much no help at all. Supervisors are cliquey as well, don't trust them.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of what is going on in the branches. The supervisors are so unprofessional.

    I worked at Johns Eastern Co. part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free food from vendors
    Generally nice co-workers
    nice courtyard and area around building
    really great location, plenty of lunch places to eat 5 minutes or less away
    walking distance to publix

    Cons

    small, dingy building
    monotonous work
    noisy work environment
    lackadaisical co-workers not reprimanded for constantly being on phones and not doing their work
    favoritism based on who you are connected with that works there

    Advice to Management

    Make work environment more exciting and reward those that work hard; get rid of people that constantly don't do what they are supposed to be doing because it affects the entire environment and the attitudes and moods of the people in it.

    I have been working at Johns Eastern Co. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They bring in a lot of free food. Fellow co-workers are nice people. The courtyard is pretty. Secure building. Apparently they promote from within.

    Cons

    They don't provide you with the resources you need to do your job. The system crashes every ten minutes so it's really hard to get through work. They have zero training for adjuster trainees. It's pretty much sink or swim.

    Advice to Management

    Get supplies to new people so they feel comfortable and have what they need to work. Give people more than one day of training. The lack of communication is unbelievable.

    I have been working at Johns Eastern Co. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Training for new adjusters is above and beyond any other company in the area. Management from supervises all the way to the President care about the employees and want them to be successful. Health benefits are very generous and there are multiple plans to choose from. 37.5 hour work week. CEUs are offered in house.

    Cons

    The company just went through a computer system upgrade. This has been stressful for not only the employees but also the clients. There is a group of employees assigned to identify issues for employees and clients and hopefully this will make for a smoother transition. It's an adjusting company, adjusting can be stressful. That's not necessarily a con for the company, but the industry. No matter what company you work for you're going to have good days and bad days based on your caseload.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to the employees to make it an even better company to work for.

    Pros

    One of the few companies who will hire trainee adjusters. Excellent training program. Company is growing and there are lots of opportunities to be promoted. Friendly atmosphere to work. Good benefits and generous PTO/vacation policies.

    Cons

    While we recently went thru a claims system upgrade, the system is very user friendly. It is always difficult during a transition with software similar to Outlook upgrades and it just takes some getting use to. New features are really nice!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate goals and strategies to team members. It is

    Pros

    Johns Eastern has a small company feel in the Independent Adjusting branches along the east coast. Management is eager to facilitate training. Most of the managers started out as adjuster trainees and have stayed with the company for a long time. There are many opportunities for generous bonuses as well.

    Cons

    There are a lot of different requirements from different insurance carriers that can be hard to keep up with. You get the hang of it after a while.

    Advice to Management

    The vacation schedule could be more generous. Additionally training should be offered more regularly in the offices.
