Topics regarding layoffs at Allstate Corp.
It's clear reading the posts that managers are viewing this site and responding. How come? Don't you feel comfortable to call a staff meeting and ask your subordinates what their concerns are? Ha. Just think if you actually shared the information you... read more
Unacceptable for a company with their assets. I have spoken w/ friends that have been laid off from BOA and Verizon. They did not have to wait for their severance.
I'm certain HR isn't answering questions due to liability concerns. I can tell you it's sad what an organization of this magnitude has done to the employees in regards to severance. In our state if you were provided severance (in this case not... read more
So just wait and see what is in the pipeline next it's not fake news . Don't believe that any jobs are safe at Allstate , as they ready their India call center it's up an running . Ask management and watch them deny any knowledge and tell you no it... read more
I'm curious about the people just saying "leave". Do you live in a wonderful world of no bills and money trees? Its not something you can just leave and hope it works out. You guys must be management hoping to save a severance payout. I was going... read more
Well I can speak for the jobs being sent to India. One of my coworkers ( I am an impacted employee no longer with the company ) that works in the DOC in Irving has been offered a TDY job as a trainer in India for 6mos.. The company plans on sending... read more
I've been a field adjuster with Allstate for some time now. HR did their geographical mapping in all areas to determine who they will involuntary terminate their positions. It looked like Ray Charles picked these adjusters. I was one of them. Does... read more
I'm in the So Cal area and speaking with others that were also laid off it looks like no payments have been made yet at least in this market.
Can a person draw unemployment after being laid off while waiting on a severance package? I have a feeling that Allstate will drag their feet getting the severance payment out. Just wondering if anyone knows... Thanks in advance.
I can't speak for everyone, and I can't blame Allstate for wanting to stay up on technology even if that means letting some go. But this had to be in the making. Why hire someone, have them relocate knowing full well they are going to be laying them... read more
Of course they try to keep it as quiet as possible. It's only announced if they are legally required to or a reporter gets wind of it. Get you head out of the sand... read more
It seems that there will be 2,250 new positions at Allstates Charlotte expansion. This would ordinarily be great news, if it was not happening while many other employees who have been with the company for years are getting laid off... read more
An announcement will be sent out to Auto Claims on Friday about many of the jobs will start moving to India later this year or sooner. As a leader this makes me sick that knowing there is nothing to replace these positions. Allstate is lying to its... read more
Nobody in my office knew about the amount of layoffs going on in other offices. We haven't had a town hall meeting since the qfc announcement back in the end of last year/ early this year (don't remember exactly when it was. I see a lot of managers... read more
Anyone on here getting laid off the 14th? Just wondering. I turned in my paperwork for severance pkg. a few weeks ago and when I called to see if they received it I was told I will receive a signed copy back in the mail. Has anyone received their... read more
I missed this. Didn't realize it was so early in the day. I can't find it recorded anywhere, anyone there or watch it that can tell me what he talked about?
For retirees here jealous and thanks for service. Curious what did mgt or hr flunky (there's a waste of a dept) say to u in exit interview and what did u share if u can share. Curious if that is just of looks do they write anything down?
So, is this still supposed to be an announcement date?
Express employee here. Qfc is a complete disaster. We will be losing so many customers. I take calls from just as many older customers who don't use technology, as younger folks who do. So to the customers who have been with us for 20+ years we are... read more
I was an Allstate employee for 24 years before having to retire due to a medical condition. During my tenure I was able to see many of the changes that happened at Home Office and I could see the writing on the wall for field techs and drive-in techs... read more
So whomever posted about this "announcement " on the 18th why have you not responded to the inquiries about what it's for?
So, who else had their meeting? What do you think will come from it? I see a lot of accountability, and a lot of rude awakenings!
How do you let our voice be heard? Our insureds will suffer, claimants as all can attest are always dirt to Allstate....how can QFC continue? Every shop I know hates, already hates Allstate by reputation = now it's obvious they are screwing out... read more
Performance doesnt matter the officers of company all have stock options that increase when they announce layoffs in press. Its clear how bad morale is i mean they had to have a 1 day training course to ORDER us to be happy and made "leadership" the... read more
With how they laid off people in a very secretive manner on June 14, I really doubt the July 18 announcement will be for layoffs. Remember, "impacted" (laid off) employees were emailed an invite the DAY BEFORE to join a conference call that was... read more
I wish management would read this board, but that's to much to ask they don't even ask workers for input. Home office puts things in place and does not realize the negative effect it has on the company. I've meant a lot of people at Allstate that... read more
Is (supposedly) a corporate value. I've learned more about managements plans here than on any Corp emails. Sad, but not surprised. As 20 year employee company has lost market share and respect since de mutualization and is run by execs who have stock... read more
as a 20 year employee, wondering which department is next for the hatchet? low moral in my office, with the MOI unit wiped out, multiple field techs gone. customer service is down the tubes. I pay premiums for someone to look at my car, not take... read more
I cant tell where most of you all are from or which offices you worked at, but one of the happiest days of my life was the day I left Allstate. We were always just numbers to them. Yes they did 'recognition' but you had to be a favorite and a kiss... read more
LAyoff over 1200 staff while we earned them record profits, unheard of ratios and everything filling the honchos corporate jets, stadiums, cruises, all the millions they spend on outside fluff and crap for head honchos pisses me off!
The last couple years working as a field tech, crazy things began to happen to me. I was constantly reprimanded to not completing heavy hits in drive in under 20 min. Also, I had regional staff get on my case for not handling customers that were 2... read more
Does anyone know exactly how many were let go in total?? Waiting for the s**t to hit the fan in Bridgewater.
Just saw this burried in one of the threads, it's from a journalist for The Chicago Tribune - not sure if anyone is ready to do this but wanted to share (they can read everything here anyway): Hi all, so so sorry to hear about the layoffs. I'm a... read more
The company is going downhill fast. Morale is awful. Management has no clue. Despite what you think you see customers do not like quick foto claim. Cusotmers pay a company like Allstate money because they were told for years that you get Cadillac... read more
Any folks here? Any layoffs?
