A Pennsylvania Insurance company
Senior Claims Representative (Former Employee), Edina, MNSeptember 17, 2013
Pros: good coworkers
Cons: computerized system to value bodily injury claims.
Telephone investigation of auto losses, determining liability and resolving claims. It's a demanding job and customers generally start out unhappy. The hardest part of the job was learning that I was paid less than people with the same or less experience or education when the Human Resources manager mistakenly sent out an email listing employee's salaries.
