Sr. Regional Recruiter (Current Employee) – Chantilly, VA – April 2, 2018
It’s a nice place to work and I would recommend someone applying to the position. Most of the positions are contract positions when it comes to recruiting, but I would not let that deter me if I am serious about adding experience to my resume. Overall it is a new type of talent acquisition as well as a break from the norm as far as office culture.
The micromanaged is the worst part of the position. When your looking for help sometimes no one is able to assist. The pay also could be more than what is for this particular role. Was told you can move up to be an adjuster after 6 months in role. When I actually found out it takes years and that role isn’t always open. Not a bad company but your underpaid and overworked.
Total Loss Representative (Current Employee) – Rocky Hill, CT – November 18, 2018
This is a good place to start a future in the insurance industry, but not a place to grow and be compensated for your work load. Training is poor so you must be a fast learner and catch on quick. There are no policies and procedures that are followed. This works well for a young person who wants experience to grow into the insurance world.

Agency Field Representative (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – November 15, 2018
I enjoyed my time at Allstate. It was so long ago. Can not comment on culture of the company now. I have not worked there in over 25 years. When I was there the work/life balance was great. They allowed me to come in late so I could attend college courses in mornings before work.
Inside Property Adjuster (Former Employee) – Diamond Bar, CA – November 14, 2018
There were not enough property adjusters to support the claims that were coming in. You were required to maintain a high amount of new claims daily, while managing your current claims. Allstate looked for every reason not to cover home claims and often made the process difficult. This falls back on the property adjusters, as they are the ones who interact with the customers who are more often than not beyond angry with Allstate for one reason or another. The constant berating from customers becomes tiring and the onslaught of new claims made it feel like there would never be an end to the stress.

Kentucky (Current Employee) – Kentucky – November 13, 2018
The owner works for Allstate and staff works for the owner under a different business name so there aren't benefits (health, life, 401K, etc) . Each owner determines pay structure and schedule differently but most pay salary plus commission. Training is non-existent and you have to find your own time to do it. Most "new" products or discounts I see on a commercial and have to try to find training on it before customers start asking about it. There are way too many people doing a million different pointless jobs in corporate that I think cost the company money and make the rates stay higher. Most people at that top don't actually try to help the local offices. The majority of regional sales leaders just give you phone numbers of other people to call if you need help instead of taking the time to help. It hurts the company. Long time customers should have discounts if they have been with the company for 5-10 years or longer. The company needs to downsize the corporate office to help the company as a whole and then people could benefit because Allstate has great claims programs but too many people don't see the customer and forget who pays their salary.
