Thread regarding Farmers Insurance layoffs

Farmers no longer hiring

This company is no longer hiring. I am thinking lay off coming soon as policies drop. Current management has gotten rid of support staff, froze new hires in CA, taken away fleet cars and shuffling staff to handle caseloads of folks that has left. Also, terminating folks on time card violations.( I am sure class action to follow) nothing new to a company who is a repeated violator.

Also with drop policies they will reshuffle and they performance folks out than lay off by attrition. The management are self interested folk who lacks caring for the staff. A lot of talk but there are lack of action. Sometime you wonder why they talk so much about equality and discrimination, as it’s probably a consistent issue for them.

Farmers Legal offices are the worst place to work. Attorneys are given too many files to be able to handle. Management only cares about the number of files that are closed and they don't care about their employees. I worked there for almost 2 decades I was discriminated and harrassed by my supervisor the best thing that I did was get out!
If you are thinking of joining Farmers, please don't they will milk you and you will not see any compensation for it.

I fully agree with the comment that said the managers must drink the koolaid or be removed. I am a tragedy of that exact scenario. It’s the good ol boy mentality that I wouldn’t go along with that got me pushed out of the company after over a decade of service. The managers, especially in claims, are more worried about making a name for themselves and staying relevant than they are about the employees. It’s all talk about being inclusive and open door policy because as soon as you speak out against racism, s-xism and ageism, you will find yourself in the streets. They take full advantage of working in a “right to work” state.

NOT a great place to work. Claims is a very negative, micro managed environment. If you are thinking of a career in claims with Farmers, DON'T! Run away as fast as possible. I have 25 plus year with them and can't wait to retire (they froze my pension plan several years ago and cancel it for all others). PTO is great, except your work load if overwhelming because so many people are on PTO! Management has a very negative attitude. You are nothing more than a number, a plug to fill a hole until you don't flit their new matrix. NOT a good place to work! Talk is cheap! They are reducing the work force while at the same time attempting to buy the MET LIFE P&C book of business for 4 billion dollars! ONCE you become part of the mgmt team you learn to drink the KOOLAID or you are fired.

I was a farmers employee for almost two decades and was fortunate to get out when the opportunity presented itself. A huge weight off my shoulders and I am very happy to get out of adjusting. No more stress and crazy workload. A lot of my coworkers told me they wish they could get out of claim adjusting but because they are the breadwinners, they had to stay and be miserable. There is no way a an adjuster can handle all of that claim volume in an 8hr period and most will not admit that they work during their lunch break just to keep up.

Employees please be honest on the employee satisfaction survey because we all know we lied about how good it was to work there because we were scared that telling the truth would result in retaliation and/or termination.

I would not recommend a claim adjuster job to anyone, even my worst enemy. Once your in, it’s hard to get out. If your still in school, focus on a more stable career like something in the medical field.

It is true. This Wednesday folks over 55 years were told to retire as that’s the age Farmers approved for early retirement. Which is the start, if this is not true, why don’t you wait till January and get the company to show details about the population stats of the employees. If not enough retirements, there is a Reduction of force in January. Hopefully it’s not the prior company supporter, who will lose their job. This person might be a property adjuster, they took out many prior to fire now hurting....

Also, after the elections. If economy goes under more policies will be lost and more reduction.

When people over 55 years retire and leave, it creates a gap of skill and knowledage, which will put more strain on remaining workers hence look forward to be worked more with no rewards. Now, where is that 10% 401k match that the company showed off with publicity earlier, was it just for the higher ups and nibbles for the worker bees.

Smell the reality of this honest information. Get out before it’s too late or wait for the severance package. Hopefully, they will give something to look good.

You only have to think about Reliance to BW to FIG play.

Farmers was great when it was under British Tabacco.

Now, who like to do some research about the Zurich involvement. Why did Zurich stop the aggressive lean movement. Why and what happen to their CFO. I let you the readers do some homework to understand the reality of this company.

A lot of this is simply untrue. I work for Farmers as a field adjuster and I dont know of a single adjuster tjat has had their fleet vehicle taken and they've said numerous times that isnt in their plans. Firing people for timecard violations is nothing new at all. Farmers is for the most part putting a hold on new hires, which is to exoected during a pandemic that has a lot of people their jobs and this results in policy shrinkage. You dont go on a hiring spree during times like that. Honestly, you sound like a disgruntled ex employee that got fired for a timecard violation and now you're bitter.
