A typical day would provide the opportunity to work with many individuals in the resolution of the losses. I learned if you handle each persons loss as if it were your own, while being cognizant of the fiduciary responsibility to the insurance carrier, there were very few times anyone had a complaint about your work.
Management as a general rule were hands off, as long as you followed the reporting guidelines.
As you work via computer link, on your own, there is little opportunity to be involved with co-workers.
The hardest part of the job is keeping ahead of the volume of losses during periods of high claims demand following a large, catastrophic loss.
The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting with people and seeing parts of the country you may have never been to prior to the assignment.
