    Pros

    From the very first contact I had with State National in the recruiting process to being hired on-board - it was a consistent and professional process. The hiring manager went above and beyond to make me feel welcome and make sure I would be a good fit for State National and that the company would be a good fit for me. During the recruiting process, I was very well informed about the company.

    State National likes to show it's employees they are appreciative of their hard work & loyalty by rewarding them with bonuses, annual salary increases, an unbeatable 401K matching plan, quarterly luncheons, and an employee appreciation week. Managers, supervisors, and even peers are encouraged to show appreciation to employees who go above and beyond by rewarding them with a Shared Value Award, which includes a gift card.

    Cons

    Career development and upward mobility is limited.

    Pros

    Beautiful building. You'll hate everything inside it however.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover rate across the company. They are always hiring Document Processors because they know they won't last. Few have been working for 6 months, much less a year. The recruiter has been there for 2 months, the hiring manager for 7 months. The blind are leading the blind, working here is a waste of time. There is zero upward mobility. None of the skills you'll "learn" here are marketable.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the position and qualifications.

    I worked at State National Co. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can get overtime and eat lunch whenever and you can work at home a day or two out of the week

    Cons

    Favoritism is rampant, they create a toxic environment, worst place i have ever worked, no breaks, you type every second and ruin your body sitting. They expect you to be a perfect robot and not complain. They do not appreciate you, gossip is rampant and they treat you like kindergarteners with stickers and smilie faces and once in a while, a cookie. They let some people get away with coming in late, leaving early, constantly calling in, letting people work at home that are not eligible (that is if the big boss finds you attractive), supervisors allow bullying and wont move your seat. They dont know how to solve problems, there is rampant cheating with the work, dishonesty and unhealthy competition to make production numbers, the environment is terrible. You get blamed if you complain.

    Advice to Management

    The place started going downhill because the turnover is so high and they hired a bunch of trashy people. Managers are BLIND to whats going on. They need to fire about 20 people in the document processing for being liars and cheaters. One supervisor is a corporate noodle, the manager of the department flirted with employees, cheats on his wife and brags to the males there about his exploits! But, don't say anything, he will lie and get his revenge, supervisors have anger management issues. They treat the best employees there the worst. They are not fair, if you work there, after 5 plus years, you become toxic. BEST thing I've ever done is quit that place!!! There is no advancement and the insurance is horrible!!! New supervisors blindly believe what they are told. They don't see what the truth is.

    Pros

    State National Companies is a great company to work for! SNC is an incredibly STABLE and successful company that is very generous and consistent with annual salary increases for their employees (which is tough to find in an ever-changing economy).

    SNC really goes above and beyond for their employees - they have an excellent 401K match and tuition reimbursement! They generously provide free quarterly luncheons and an even have an entire week dedicated to appreciating and giving to their employees (Employee Appreciation Week). During EAW they have daily and weekly themed events, both team and individual games, raffles and the prizes given throughout the week are endless! The week ends with a big event (last year was a casino night) and by the end of the night they gave away a Grand Prize (last year was a trip to Tahoe)!!!

    Not only that, but SNC also gives back to the community by participating in HEB's canned food drive, Salvation Army's Angel Tree project and annual on-site Carter Blood Drives!

    Cons

    One of the only cons that I can come up with in regards to working for State National Companies would be that advancement opportunities are limited in some departments.

    I worked at State National Co. full-time

    Pros

    You can go weeks without having to speak to your super or coworkers. The company offers a telephone room and a napping area. No drug testing required.

    Cons

    You spend 8 hours sitting in uncomfortable 10 year old chairs keying numbers. There is a very high turnover. They cannot explain how they calculate your weekly numbers. So there is always an issue when awarding overtime, bonus, or work at home privileges. You just wont get them. Favoritism runs rampant here. One female employee spends her time sitting at the managers desk flirting infront of the whole floor. The health insurance is very expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. Answer questions when asked instead of telling employees to mind their own business. Stop playing favoritism. And offer ways to improve production at the meetings instead of just telling people how bad they are.

    I have been working at State National Co. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent coworkers
    Excellent Supervisors
    Ample Sick/Vacation time
    Nice work-spaces
    Free Coffee, Tea, and Soup

    Cons

    They don't fill upper management/supervisory/administrative position with any African American people. They're at the bottom of the totem pole here. You can probably find two minorities if that in those positions.

    This company supports Trump.

    This company pays you below your worth, even if you're exceeding their expectations.

    The higher ups allow their managers to disrespect and bully their employees. Favoritism is huge in the department.

    There is no recourse for resolving issues as the chain of command is ruined by managers being friends with their bosses. It will always be your word versus theirs. Your only option is to go to HR.

    You have to walk on egg shells because many of your coworkers will complain over your scent, your voice, or anything that bothers them that day.

    The environment is filled with tension.

    High turn-over

    Advice to Management

    You can't pay your hardest workers the lowest wages and expect your company to prosper. Pay people based on their performance and capabilities. We are not high school teens. Most your workers have families, yet give most their time to your company. Show appreciation by providing adequate pay rates. Data entry of this type deserves $15 hour minimum.

    Show your employees that you respect and value them.

    I worked at State National Co. (More than a year)

    Pros

    A few great people, but most are at lower levels.Great Building, Free Coffee, and fun events throughout the year.

    Cons

    Racism, if you don't fit in their mold they won't hire you. Racism and ignorance goes all the way up the ladder to the top. Biggest issue: Bad Mangement. People can't look past their own noses because their all on the buddy system and can't make objective decisions. If you're a lower employee you will be burned and used.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being best friends with one another to where you can't even see the issues. Stop being racist.
