Premium Payment Analyst (Current Employee) – Macon, GA – May 10, 2017
GFB was at one time, a very pleasant place to work. People have retired or moved on for various reasons and instead of hiring extra people to fill the vacancies, they are dividing the jobs between current employees causing a work overload and no extra compensation. I am now concerned with the financial security of the business.
Mailroom Clerk (Former Employee) – Macon, GA – May 5, 2017
Your morning start when delivery come. Sorting document and processing claim. Finding files that could be in Attorney offices so you can process at a timely fashion. Getting document needed to complete the process. I learned what Attorney have to go through, what there job consist of, customer service, Data Entry, claims, estimates.

Agency Manager (Former Employee) – Lakeland, GA – May 4, 2017
They were going through a tough transition of going from a captive agency system to a multi company agency system. The industry in Georgia had suffered several bad years from property losses from catastrophic storms. Their concentration of values caused the company to suffer large losses and require new tough underwriting and review guides to mitigate future losses.
Commercial Underwriter (Former Employee) – Macon, GA – February 9, 2017
A typical day at work would consist of working your queue starting with the oldest date and answering phone calls. Most of the management is awesome, there are just a few that are lacking. It's a great work environment with your co-workers.
Data Center Operator (Current Employee) – Macon, GA – February 6, 2017
I love my job and I've only been here a month. They really gave me the best job in my field and I'm already being set up for retirement. My boss is the shizznit and my coworkers are down to earth. Everyone else is pretty awesome and helpful also. My favorite job, next to GameStop. Only downside: my training period has me stuck in the earliest shift possible. 8:00-4:30, aka no taking my baby to school, no picking him up, and no business getting done cause I work during business hours of everything lol
Productive and fun workplace co-workers and I worked as a team.

Processing (Former Employee) – Macon Georgia – October 13, 2014
When I first started working there it was great. As the time went on and people retired the new supervisors became inconsiderate and in my case RUDE. . If you can get a job in any other department besides PHS I would say do it. PHS is very stressful and makes up rules as they go,
Secretary (Current Employee) – Columbus, GA – October 8, 2014
When I come into work each morning I take the mail out and make coffee. After that I check my emails and respond to all request. During the day I take calls, file paper work, help customers with their account, make new files and check on our change apps. Towards the end of the day we close out our shift, clean the coffee out and make sure all the lights our off before setting the alarm to leave. After I am off, I have to make one stop at the bank to make my night deposit.
I love all my agents because they all have different personalities and are fun to work with.
Management is excellent. Completely fair and always want to see you progress within the company.
Everything is pretty easy besides making sure our customers pay on time.
I enjoy everything about this place but I am still looking for another job that I could work around my current job to have an extra income.
Holiday pay bonus, holiday pay, extra breaks and longer lunches, very flexible with our schedules in case we have an emergency, excellent health care benefits and promotions.

I enjoyed working with various customers and co-workers. Because of the internship specifications, I worked several different departments.

Policy Analyst I (Former Employee) – Macon, GA – September 21, 2012
Loved working with Georgia Farm Bureau. My hard work and dedication to doing a awesome job for the company was recongnized and rewarded with promtions every 6 months. A typical day and work required me entering all typed of data into our application systems.Keep detailed records and documenting them to management. Management was excellent but unfair on somethings; one department was forced to abide by strick rules while other departments were able to get away with alot more. My overall experience at GFB was amazing i would go back to work for this company if offered a position to go back.
Mail Ops / Claims Call Cntr / Policy Analyst (Former Employee) – Macon, GA – July 10, 2012
My position in Mail Operations was rewarding. I enjoyed delivering the mail through out the building and being able to move around. The training was adequate for the job. My position as CRC Rep was also rewarding and I learned a great deal about insurance. The training was excellent and prepared me to be successful in the posistion. My position as Policy Analyst was stressful and the training was not adequate for the expectations.
MAIL CLERK (Former Employee) – Macon, GA – May 16, 2012
Ga farm bureau is not a great place to work for any more! The company has went through changes.Use to be a down to earth place to work you know like family . But the company has changed and some of the supervisors and some of the top people are so uncaring about there employees. Stressful environment to work in. Insurance was good but the stress was not that. It cause me to have to go to the doctors. Just not worth it!!! I had rather have a job with not insurance than deal with all the mess and stress from,some of supervisors and some of the top people at ga farm bureau !
Office Claims Representative (Former Employee) – Macon GA – April 30, 2012
Typical day would be to come in and take phone off forward and begin working claims. We were to set up claims, rentals, take statements iinvolving disputed claims. review bodily injury claims and settle with attorneys if possible, otherwise forward to the bodily injury unit. I learned alot about insurance coverages and negotiating with attorneys and was able to apply that knowledge to personal life such as helping out a family member that didn't understand what coverages they had for their house or when my sister was involved an in accident and was injured. I was able to help her negotiate with at-fault insurance company without involving an attorney. The hardest part of the job was trying to find a balance between working your claims and asnwering the phones as well as returning phone calls. It could be very overwhelming. The enjoyable part of the job were the perks, such as holiday parties and free tickets to the national fair every year just to name a few.
