    I worked at Allstate part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I entered the company with no minimum prior knowledge of insurance, I was completely trained on how to use the Allstate system, how to speak with customers, take payments, etc. I liked this job because it helped me learn to deal with customers, which is vital.

    Cons

    I really liked working here I can't say there was anything bad about this company.

    I have been working at Allstate

    Pros

    Handling claims can be very challenging. Allstate has good training, great benefits and decent pay

    Cons

    Sometimes workload can be very overwhelming and has a tendency to micro-manage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the employees that you hire that they can and will do the job.I'm pretty sure 25+ year employees know what they are doing. You will get better results without micro-managing
