How to Get Hired
We asked Progressive Insurance for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
We look for passionate, driven individuals who enjoy a collaborative environment, value strategic thinking, embrace diversity of thought and approach, like to challenge themselves and aren't afraid to ask questions or push the envelope to reach that next step.
Successful employees at Progressive thrive in a high-energy, inclusive culture that expects engagement regardless of role. They are proactive, adaptable and constructive while also taking on the responsibility of upholding respect and honesty in the workplace.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Finding ways to connect with Progressive outside of the traditional application process can always help you stand out. Take the extra step to get to know us through our social media presence, website or sites like Glassdoor. Use that information to build relationships and network. For example, connect with recruiters who recruit for an area you are interested in on sites like LinkedIn. Or, find out what upcoming events we may be hosting or participating in, and you can meet us face to face.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We're always looking for candidates who have a passion for helping others. In our claims offices across the country, we look for entry-level and seasoned Claims Adjusters to join our team. We also have six major customer care call center locations (Cleveland, Tampa, Austin, Phoenix, Colorado Springs, Sacramento) where we hire Inbound Sales Reps and Customer Service Reps. Additionally, tech and analyst roles continue to be a focus for us. We work with big data, so we're always looking for data scientists, data analysts and statistical analysts. We're also always evolving our technology to find better more efficient ways to satisfy our customers needs. So, we hire Systems Test Engineers, Systems Engineers and Software Developers.
