  • Summary

    Work for a company that puts you first and gives you the opportunity to make an impact!

     

    Esurance is looking for a Customer Care Advocate to join a dynamic and award-winning team of individuals who are committed to making insurance smarter, easier, and dare we say- cooler. As part of a growing company that is focused on providing an outstanding customer experience, you’ll have the opportunity to expand your skills and discover your potential.

     

    If you’re looking for a career at a socially conscious company that offers great benefits — including matching 401k and tuition reimbursement — then you may have just found your new home. 

     

    Esurance combines the spunk of a startup company with the backing of Allstate (the largest publicly held personal lines insurer in the U.S.) to create a unique, energized, and exciting place to work. 

     

    If you’re a highly motivated person who’s looking for something different, then you’re going to love this opportunity! Our Customer Care Advocates play a very critical role because they are the first point of contact for our customers that have been involved in an auto accident.

     

    If you have at least 2 years of customer service experience, this is your chance to advance your career with a company that is all about attracting, rewarding, respecting, and supporting top talent. We want people who have a genuine passion for helping others and most importantly; love to have fun!

     

    Don’t know anything about insurance? That’s OK!

    You don’t have to have insurance experience because we’re not a typical insurance company. We'll provide fun, thorough, paid training that will teach you everything you need to know so you feel confident taking on claims with your team by your side. Not only will we pay for your license, your benefits will start on day one! We offer a competitive starting salary of $16.25/hr. so bring your passion for people, technology, and problem-solving to the table and leave the rest to us!
