If you do not work for American Family Insurance Corporation you do not receive any benefits at all. You are either an agent or office staff that is contracted and there are ZERO medical benefits. That is the only negative thing I could find.
Licensed Insurance Producer (Current Employee) – Ava, MO – September 19, 2017
I have loved working for American Family Insurance. It has been a great entry-level position to help me build my experience level. I learned how to communicate well with customers when they had questions about their policy or issues with their claim.
Auto Claims Representative (Former Employee) – Waukesha, WI – September 18, 2017
They make you think it's going to get better, high turnover many people left, they did not plan for the turnover so had to wait for replacements mean time, you were over worked more...it was just insane working expectations....
Its a job if you have to take it be aware of the stress
Unbelievable expectations its like working in a factory, you just keep getting claims with no real time to help the insured....its horrible
If your into sales great. If not this job is certainly not for you. I had to call people to try to sell insurance who were angry they were being contacted and when i wasn't doing that it was stressful dealing with all the claims and legality that went with them.
Casualty Claim Manager (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – September 7, 2017
A big office with lots of opportunity to be micromanaged from multiple levels of management. Direction is confusing and at times not clear. Branch managers will find those that they do not like and press management to find ways to squeeze them out.
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Spanish Fork, UT – September 4, 2017
Amfam is a solid company with a lot of great people. Competitive rates on home, auto, & life. I write new business so I made lots of calls and prepared tons of quotes each day. I learned a lot about how insurance works. My boss offers no benefits.
IS Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Madison, IL – September 4, 2017
I enjoy working for American Family but I would prefer if they would get rid of the contractor to full time employee ratio restriction. I feel if that you have a good employee they should feel that they have a chance to stay with a company and advance after showing that they are a reliable employee. The management is great and they are always very caring and understanding when issues arise at home and in someone's personal life. Great experience but unfortunately opportunities are limited.
Agent/Owner (Former Employee) – Kuna, ID – September 3, 2017
I learned how to manage a business and all the ups and downs that come with it. For me the loss of time with my family was not worth the opportunity. If you dont have little ones at home this could be a great career path.
QA LEAD (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – August 31, 2017
Worked as a QA test lead in EDI Electronic Data interchange supporting various stake holders . Used to follow Agile methodology techniques & tools .Good working at this company. learnt new tools in agile techniques . worked in TDM,, Guide wire Policy Center .
Loved being an Insurance Agent, but the number one thing they wanted you to sell was auto insurance. We were not competitive at all so it was impossible. All other lines we were competitive in. Fellow employees were nice and professional.
Great team, great place to work, advancement opportunities are always available. Perks like hotel discounts, rental cars and airfare.
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Fayetteville, GA – August 26, 2017
Just apply if you are interested. Each agency sets their own pay for you, so if one doesn't work, apply to anothet one. Also many people beleive that you have to have your license before they hire you and that is not true. They will hire you and then pay for you to be licensed if you are the right canidate. Each agency badically set their own rules.
Great perks, discounts, and benefits.
Not enough hours in the day to talk to as many people.
