Allstate Agencies Looking to Hire Military Veterans and Spouses
Local Allstate Agencies throughout Pennsylvania and New England are actively looking to hire for agency staff positions through year-end and into 2020
MALVERN, Penn., Nov. 6, 2019 — Veterans Day is a time for Americans to pay their respects to those who have served our country. With the holiday fast approaching, Allstate Insurance Company is reinforcing its commitment to hiring veterans, current service members and their spouses, and Allstate agencies are also looking to hire for agency staff positions in Pennsylvania and New England.
“Many of the outstanding qualities that our veterans possess also make for a great Allstate agent or employee: commitment, teamwork, leadership and a passion for helping others,” said Richard Eggles, Allstate human resources consultant and retired U.S. Air Force Senior Master Sergeant.
Allstate’s Joining Forces for Good licensing program offers the opportunity to build a solid career with an Allstate agency, and a good life to go with it. Through the free program, candidates undergo Property & Casualty (P&C) licensing education, take their P&C exam and have the potential for job placement with Allstate agency owners throughout the country. More than 400 veterans were hired through the initiative in 2018, and over 300 veterans joined the Allstate family in other roles that same year.
Thanks to Allstate’s military and veteran programs, the company recently earned the No. 1 ranking on the 2020 Military Friendly Employers® list, securing the top spot in the “over $5 billion in revenue” category. The honor is an independent standard that measures organizations’ commitment, effort and success in creating sustainable and meaningful benefit for the military community. This is the fourth consecutive year the Military Friendly organization – founded to create civilian opportunities for veterans – has recognized Allstate. Last year the company was No. 2 in its category.
“Through our Joining Forces for Good licensing program, we hire, develop and train veterans and their spouses, and help them translate military into skills for the corporate world,” said Eggles. “This helps ensure transitioning veterans can have gainful and fulfilling careers at Allstate or elsewhere.”
Another way that Allstate and The Allstate Foundation stand with the military is through their partnership with the Marines Toys for Tots Foundation. Since 2017, hundreds of Allstate agencies throughout the Northeast have served as donation drop-off sites during the holiday season, collecting new, unwrapped toys for local children. From now until Friday, December 6, more than 150 agencies across Pennsylvania and New England will be collecting donations. Community members are encouraged to stop by their closest participating agency to support Toys for Tots’ 2019 holiday campaign. Learn more about this year’s donation drive here.
Allstate agencies are currently looking to hire military veterans and their spouses throughout the Northeast region.
