Hey, anyone have any inside knowledge in the town halls this week?
We were told in our town hall....raises to people to br equitable to Allstate. Sr claim adjusters.....anyone getting paid north of $60k a year? National general had 11 paid holidays. Now going to 9 paid vacation days. What are the 9 days? Thank... — read more
Wonder what BS they'll try to feed us today...
Much like allstate, Arity laid a large swathe of it's staff off last year, and funny thing is, with how quickly people have been jumping ship the last 18 months, they are now severely understaffed and don't know the first thing about hiring tech/data... — read more
You will soon see why a Union is needed at Allstate.
The one that'll truly matter. Ask every single employee if they have been searching for a new job in the last month, six months, and a year. That's it. That's the only question that needs to be on there. That single question will tell management more... — read more
It seems to me that they didn’t think much at all when they made big cuts, nor after that with hiring and overhiring new people. While some departments are staffed with a lot more hires than needed, others have one person doing a triple workloads... — read more
I’m curious of the protocol for leaving for a competitor. I have heard you’re “walked out” immediately but with the new remote work and Allstate’s deportation for employees I’m curious if you’d be allowed to work your last two weeks. Any insight? — read more
Regardless of your position either way this mandate is pointless and not worth this site's time. Due to all the federal judges standing in line to rule to halt the mandates and thus not allow companies or the government to enforce them no one will be... — read more
Does anyone know if the call centers will open back up? I thought it was supposed to be July but I haven't heard any word. I work in the Hudson office but it still isn't open
I can't understand why layoffs keep happening when attrition is as high as it is. It would make some sense if people were only leaving certain departments and they needed to cull those that are having very few departures, but those don't exist! The... — read more
While we are at it we also need to see about challenging in the courts the annual blackmail of do biometric screening and tell us your private medical information or else BS. There is a theft of employees that this company has been getting away with... — read more
Is the 1-week of pay withheld in January 2020 (due to payroll schedule change) issued to you when you resign/term/retire? If so, was it included on your final paycheck or issued separately. I recently left Allstate and when speaking with... — read more
Any insider information regarding the future of paralegals at Allstate? Will they be the next to go? Now that the axe has fallen on lead counsel, who will be next?
You're just going to have to fire me I guess. I am one of your top performing claims adjusters that stepped up much more than most after your incompetent as--s laid off so many but I now work from home bothering no one. but thanks to the potato in... — read more
If you have the sense to peruse through this site prior to applying at Allstate let this be your warning. Low pay, long hours, and ZERO work/life balance. I can't tell you how miserable our frontline claims folks are and rightly so. They have... — read more
Anyone know of tattleware type platforms that Allstate is using to monitor work from home activity? Asking for a friend…
If so do you like it, hate it, and why? I currently work in a different department but was considering applying for the CCC line see rep position.
I worked for Allstate for 35 years and held a number of positions both in the field and home office. I retired in November 2020, taking the RIF package. Allstate has always struggled to grow market share organically; rather, they purchase it i.e... — read more
Whenever I see people complain about not having the motivation to work because of this or that, I find it both funny and entitled. Your motivation to do your job and do it well should be driven by your pay. Nothing more, nothing less. Now if you're... — read more
Non claim comment….some in departments are having to STEP UP for the first time in their long prosperous career. They were retained (HR) but no longer have the people to do their job. Oh well. I guess you’ll have to work.
Culture is toxic, morale is low, I think that could be said for all Allstate departments. Still, I wonder which department do you think is the most/ least toxic?
If you've accepted a job here hoping to see your career grow then you are in for a major disappointment. You will be hindered in any attempts to move forward unless you know the right people or kiss the right butts. Management is in on it, so you... — read more
Im thinking of relocating since we are working from home but ideally I'd like to be near an Allstate corporate office.
Band C here... I was just informed I qualified for a 2.5% salary increase based on a market, performance and internal equity review. In speaking with my colleagues, It appears only woman of color got the increases and the merit must be IDE... — read more

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2007/03/circ-m30.html Circuit City fired thousands of employees, opting to cut tenured and longterm workers to avoid paying their higher salaries, and the top execs got their bonuses for all the money they saved the... — read more
Word and rumors out there this morning is Allstate may be requiring all employees be vaccinated by end of November this year and that they are tying it to their "Wellbeing" program. If this turns out to be the case and of they make this a condition... — read more
Allstate will likely be investing in Spanish speaking countries as it continues to look for ways to save a buck on the handling of claims. South America, Mexico, are hot spots for outsourcing. They will not stop in their quest to outsource as much... — read more
When people ask me where I work, I never say "I work for Allstate” but instead “I work for an insurance company”. Why? Because I have noticed how people react when the name of this company is mentioned to them. Leadership may need to reassess... — read more
Sometimes it may be more important to know what we don't want than what we want. After a few years here, it is now much clearer to me what where I do not want to work. However, how can I fully know that I will not be greeted by the same atmosphere in... — read more
