Very unreasonable and disappointing place to work.
Senior Property Adjuster (Former Employee) – Maryland Heights, MO – March 24, 2013
I worked for GB for ten years before being terminated when I turned 60. I specialized as a property adjuster early on in my career. I had very little liability claims experience. I was hired as a senior property adjuster ten years ago and handled property claims for the first eight years. I worked an average 60 hours a week to keep up with Gallagher Way expected claim load. It doesn't matter how complex the claims get, or how many new claims you get, you are expected to keep up. Management is only concerned with the adjusters claims load. When the property claims decreased I was given senior level liability claims and was expected to maintain the same volume of claims with little training or learning curve allowance. Supervisors and management are only concerned about their own jobs and could care less about the employees, other than how to make themselves look better. I am the third to be terminated that were close to my age range in the last couple years. I would not recommend employment with Gallagher.
I am now 60 and terminated from my last adjuster’s job. With 30 plus years’ experience, I cannot find a job, so I can finish out my chosen career to retirement in this great economy! So I am now changing careers thanks to Gallagher Bassett Services. People ask what severance package I was given after ten years? Well, I got to keep my 401K and they did pay me for a few vacation days I had not taken, that's it! A thankless place to work.
pay and benefits are standard
unreal expectations and no employee appreciation or carrying
