ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Powhatan VA – December 5, 2013
A typical day at work was from 8:30am to 5:00pm with an hour for lunch. Beginning with opening up the office, checking voice mail, checking for things that may have came over the fax machine over night, opening the mail and delivering it to the appropriate person or taking care of it myself if it were a change or something that was mailed to a customer for a signature for example. I learned many things, how to quote home and auto, Farm Bureau's accounting system called Mas 200, How to make changes to policies through their Prism system, the copier and fax machine and how to process the membership dues.I learned how to do binders for homeowners' policies, how to fax changes for mortgagee clauses. I have a Property and Casualty license. I also attended the board meetings every other month and wrote up the minutes for the Presidents approval. The management was great they were there to support you with any problems that you may have and to give you praise when it was warranted. In the beginning there were just 3 in the office 1 agent and 2 sec. then they combined the branch office and the main office and this changed the dynamics of the office. Then the co-workers were a mix of 4 in the office and two worked against two it was like tug of war. One sec. and agent and one sec. and agent, not one team. After I left I went back to see the agent that I had worked with for 13 years who had supported me the whole time and the other agent said it was much different since I had left and that he was sorry of the way I was treated. The hardest part off the job was when Farm Bureau decidedmore... to non-renew all the homeowner' policies and try and rewrite them through one of the 10 or so new partner carriers learning all new systems billing, quoting, claims, ect. The most enjoyable part of my job were the people I came in contact with some of the customers, managers, other sec.and agents from around the state, and the board members.less
My job was 5 minutes from my house
The other sec. I had to work with for 10 years was not the easiest person to work with.
I started as an agent is Seguin, TX in 1978. I was offered the job as Agency Manager in Rockport and Refugio, TX in 1999. I took the job as the potential for much higher income was possible. It was a pleasure to work with the company management and also to recruit and train agents to work in these offfices.
CSR (Former Employee) – Rogersville, TN – March 26, 2013
A typical day at work would be to show up at 8a.M. And put my things away. Get my money drawer and count it, turn my computer on, and begin answering the phone to our customers and try to ensure that they got the best customer satisfaction I had to offer. My co-workers and management team were awesome. Everyday was a new learning experience.
Fast paced and fast growing insurance company with a huge array of insurance products to suit a clients needs. I had my own agency and worked alongside a very knowledgeable ISR. Multi tasking was a requirement with phones ringing, clients walking in, answering emails and texts.........and the days flew by. I'm very proud of my 28 year tenure with this company.
great place to work because she pushed me to sucess

Agent (Former Employee) – South Carolina – September 19, 2012
It was a pleasure working for South Carolina Farm Bureau. The training is great and the support network as well. It’s a performance driven company for life insurance. If you want to sell life insurance and are driven, you will be working for an incredible company. Work schedule after training is highly variable to your client’s needs. It can be seen as an 8-5 job, but the job follows you everywhere. If you're in the office you're not making sells. That being said your schedule can be made around personal obligations and the company supports it. Not to mention the great benefit of being able to sell a variety of other insurance products, that will allow you to meet a variety of your client’s needs.
Toccoa, GA (Current Employee) – Secretary – November 9, 2011
Georgia Farm Bureau is a great place to work. They work with you when you have to be out or get sick. They teach you everything you need to know about the job. I would love to continue my career with them if it were a full time job.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Des Moines, IA – March 28, 2012
I have been talking to people I know that have homes, cars, and are recently married about their insurance. I have learned how to put together insurance quotes and explain the coverage to people. I work for a guy that is in another town which makes it a little more difficult. The hardest part of the job for me is setting the appointments and getting people to switch their insurance.
