Financial Representative (Current Employee) – Northbrook, IL – July 9, 2017
Allstate is a fine company for P&C business, sky is the limit with hard work. On the Life & Retirement side the company is differently focused. Managers are very nice and try hard but have limited ability to steer effective partners to their new hires. Success comes from ones ability to obtain good P&C location partners who then provide leads. There's no metric for this process and so it gets managed accordingly. Initially this process is beyond the new hires control and luckily, they are not told this during the interview process. Additionally, you may at times compete against seasoned contractors for business for which the company has contracted you to service. This too is not discussed during the interview process. What's very satisfying is helping people protect their families and save for their future. You can make your own hours which is nice, and you have the choice of paying for your own healthcare, or you can get Obamacare if the situation allows.
Make your own hours, helping families financially
Longevity is the mitigating factor to success, pay your own healthcare, very low commission percentages
There was very good support from the management and company has very clear and honest process. Pay was not that great however work environment/culture suited me very well and I learned a lot about dealing with different customers and build the business relationship.
CLAIMS FIELD ADJUSTER AUTO TECHNICAL ANALYST (Current Employee) – Corona, CA – July 8, 2017
You get so much time off at Allstate, that alone is worth the job. You also get a matching 401k and a pension which is very nice. The pay is a little less than you would get at another company doing the same job but you do get raises often. Overall it was a good experience but they do have lay offs every few years so the future is not guaranteed.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – July 7, 2017
The customers can get away with murder, but the employees are micromanaged, nitpicked, paid the lowest possible for their field of specialty. Raises are so low usually between 1-2% a year. You work like a dog services the customer and put in extra hours that you don't get paid for, but you're treated like everything you do is wrong.
team leader (Former Employee) – Yuma, AZ – July 5, 2017
Allstate is a great company to work for , if you do not have to work in the "Express" environment, which the Yuma location is. Express is nothing more than a call center. The lying, backstabbing, and manipulation that takes place within the leadership team sets the tone within the rest of the office. You will not have any opportunity for advancement unless you are one of the favorites. If the senior leadership team doesn't like you, they will find a way to get rid of you. If you are one of the leaders, you will need to live and breathe your job, work 60+ hours a week, and pretty much hand over your life to corporate America. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this place. You will be glad you did.
Resolution Specialist Call Center Team Leader (Former Employee) – Largo, FL – July 5, 2017
I really enjoyed working for Allstate Roadside. I met some of the best people there. I always invited the hard challenges to come my way as I knew that my team and I could handle anything that was thrown at us.
Producer (Current Employee) – Thibodaux, LA – July 5, 2017
Every 6 months the owner added more recommendations to meet commission. I started out at $9 an hour and gave me a twenty five cent raise within a year and a half if working there. I am used to at least $35,000 as salary.
Insurance Agent (Current Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – July 5, 2017
I have the best boss in the world, and I love my job here. My only complaint is that the rates for auto are so high that it is very difficult to make sales in that area, but the property policies sell themselves!
