Looking at the jobs for Allstate auto field claims adjuster it says you must have dependable transportation. I know the Allstate adjusters I used to deal with drove their own vehicles around all day to write damage estimates.
Does Allstate pay you for gas and or car maintenance, wear and tear or depreciation?
Is the per mile reimbursement adequate? Does it adjust for high spikes in gas prices such as we recently experienced?

I am a bodily injury claims adjuster for an auto insurance company with 4 1/2 years experience. I've grown tired of the nonsense within our company. I am presently searching for jobs with other companies in all branches of claim handling. However, I'm also thinking about switching fields all together. What other career fields would my experience qualify me for if I decided to change fields? Also, does anyone recommend a good insurance field to enter?
I'm a driving instructor (independent contractor) and need more work.
I'm exploring either the auto insurance field or work as a claims adjuster? I presently have an associates degree in criminal justice.
I'm in San Diego, CA
I took a job as an health and life insurance agent a few months ago, and I quit after a few weeks because I absolutely hated it. I didn't like doing cold calls and I felt like the company was training me to be a liar.
I'm wondering if being a claims agent for an auto insurance company is any better? I have a four-year degree, but I don't have a license for auto insurance or anything. For those who don't want to be an insurance agent, is being a claims adjuster more of the same? Is it hard?
So I have a decent job right now, but its not something I plan to do for the rest of my life. Ive already been to college and got a degree in Letters, Arts, and Sciences with a focus in Arts. But ive been thinking that I would enjoy becoming a Claims Adjuster for an insurance company. I read about it online and most places say you dont need any type of degree but classes and a certificate are usually necessary. And the starting annual salary is anywhere from around $50,000 to $60,000. Does anyone have any additional information on this profession?
I am considering becoming a claims adjuster, can you tell me what a typical day/week is like?
Additionally, I would like to know about the requirements.

I have an idea as to what you do because I work as a workers' comp claims handler and thus, am familiar with handling one type of claims, but I want to know exactly what a day is like in the life of a property claims handler. Do you just visit the property, use an estimating software, and then start negotiating? How much time is spent at a desk entering information? Is it ever necessary to litigate the claim? How many claims do you generally handle at once?
I've been employed the last 18 years as an investigator with government jobs and I have a four year degree. I've been interviewing with the public sector as a claims adjuster trainee and starting salary I've been offered is $20 hourly. I understand that I am entering a new vocation, but the salary that is offered is for a college kid out of school without any experience. Is that the going rate of salary or am I interviewing with the wrong company?
I've done almost everything I don't like as a profession. What next?
worked as auto claims adjuster, rental car salesman, at apartment rental service, library page, paid intern at talent agency, intern at music promotion company, internship at radio program, ESL teacher in Bulgaria, contruction type stuff, guitarist in bands in Hollywood, and waiter. Other jobs too.
I do have B.A. in History. "I Can't Get No Satisfaction."
I did enjoy the Entertainment Industry stuff but of course it is not enough to make living.
I am currently an MRI technician but am just not into it. I love working on cars but the base pay for a new auto technician is average at best. I am currently making $22 an hour in michigan so it would have to be at least that. Is their any kind of specialties that would pay more? Where would I go to receive the training?
If an insurance company is asking for extra money for the driver at fault because the property damages did not cover all fees and the at fault driver does not have a job or any income what will the consequences be? (If you are bothered by this question or do not agree, please do not answer and move on thank you!)
The property damage was not high enough to cover damaged vehicle. (If you do not have a helpful answer please DO NOT answer, No Opinions please)
As I see it, the shop and the adjuster got together to agree on a price. Then the shop is willing to do the job for less and only takes the award from the insurance company. Is this fraud?
I know there's lots of variations depending on where you live, experience etc, but generally speaking, which insurance companies pay their claims adjusters the best out of the ones listed below?

...and any other of the big companies you can think of.
Also, what fields that are more lucrative than claims adjusting, can a claims adjuster potentially parlay into, inside or outside of working for a big insurance company?
I live in chicago. I am just getting my life back in order after years of a few bad circumstances. I have a Bachelors degree in Business Management but I make only $24,000 annual. How can I find a career/job making over $40,000 so that I can live like a real adult my age should? I have 10 years experience in the auto insurance industry working in a underwriting support department and two years experience as a claim adjuster trainee.
I've been looking for a job that I can realistically be hired at for months now with no luck. I'm in LV, NV. Any positive suggestions are much appreciated.
Is there a common calculation that is a rule of thumb at all with auto injury settlements? My husband and I were hit head on a few months ago and he was badly injured (in the hospital for a week). Do we take our medical bills and multiply by a certain amount at all or is that just a rumor? Any help is appreciated!
Oh, and we are working with an attorney - he just hasn't given us any kind of figure yet since we're not done with medical treatments.
About 1 yr ago I was laid off and the next day I came out to find my car was backed into in a parking lot.I was depressed about losing my job and did not have extra money for a deductible so I did not file a claim.I am now hearing that this would of been fixed and the deductible waived because I was hit in a parking lot.Does anyone know anything about this type of thing? I live in Michigan !!!
I've been working at State Farm for 4 months. I'm really interested in claims. I would really like to become a claims rep. How would I come about this? Is it a good job?
