Consistent work environment
Service Center Appraiser (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – April 26, 2016
Typical day was confirming appointments for inspections, evaluating damages to vehicles, reviewing with adjusters for any inconsistency of reported loss, locating alternate parts for estimates to reduce cost, writing diminished value evaluations, assessing if damages are consistent with injury claims. I learned further estimating tools in operations for repairs and accepted repair practices, further mechanics of injury that resulted from impacts, and being able to work autonomous with a manager out of state. Management was available but worked states away, contact was minimal with not much direction in expectations and chances for advancement. I enjoyed the interaction with my co-workers, there was a team environment and we all worked to make sure the quality of work was consistent with achieving quick and accurate resolutions to claims. The hardest part of the job was when work started slowing down and we were not getting any information on the viability of our office. I really enjoyed being able to examine the vehicles with the facts of loss and evaluate the accuracy of the loss and injuries being claimed.
