Description:

Join Forbes' 2022 Best Employer for Diversity!

As a claims adjuster trainee, you'll learn how to help customers get back on the road after an accident. This is not a field position which means you'll be building relationships with customers over the phone. In a fast-paced environment, you'll learn how to resolve a fullcase load of claims efficiently while managing the claims process from start to finish. You'll have the support of a collaborative team and ongoing coaching from leaders. We'll also teach you the insurance stuff - providing in-depth training on property damage and insurance contracts so you can confidently and independently adjust claims.

This is a hybrid role, which means you'll work in-office two days that are selected by local leadership and choose where you want to work the other three days, whether that's at home or in the office, for a training period of about 12 weeks. After graduating from training, you'll be expected to report to an office about four days per month for important meetings, training, and collaboration. In this hybrid work environment, you'll be supported by your leaders and tenured colleagues to develop relationships, establish connections, and share practices that are important to your development. If you prefer an in-office environment, you're welcome to work in the office more than four days per month.
