Allstate Ramps Up Iowa Recruiting

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Allstate Insurance Company appointed three new exclusive agents in Iowa last year. Now, the company is ramping up its recruiting again – searching for 15 additional Iowa agency owners next year. 

As the 2012 campaign continues on and there's continued focus on small business and job creation, Allstate is offering the right candidates the chance to own their own piece of the American Dream. 

"We see a significant opportunity in the current job climate to attract mid-career, mid-level managers to own and operate their own business and represent Allstate in Iowa," said Gary Chitwood, Allstate's West Central Region's recruiting director. "We're working with business brokers, utilizing social media tools and have our own team of recruiters to find professionals with financial or sales backgrounds, who are dedicated to customer service.  Additionally, to people who lead us to agents, we're offering a $10,000 referral bonus."

Allstate also plans to add further to the Iowa job market with 30 new Iowa jobs for licensed sales professionals.  Each new agency opens with a minimum of two staff members to make sure customers are treated with efficiency and courtesy.

"Allstate not only has a spectacular brand and exceptional support staff to train and champion new exclusive agents, Allstate is unique among all other insurers because its agents own the economic interest in their business," said Chitwood.  "Allstate agents can sell the economic interest in their agency.  No other branded insurer has this option."

Interested candidates can apply to become an Allstate agent by logging on to www.allstate.com, or by calling 1-877-711-1006.  Interested candidates can check out this video featuring four Allstate agents.  In addition, interested parties can send questions or potential leads by tweeting @Allstatewc. 

The Allstate Corporation (NYSE: ALL) is the nation's largest publicly held personal lines insurer, serving approximately 16 million households through its Allstate, Encompass, Esurance and Answer Financial brand names. Widely known by its slogan "You're In Good Hands With Allstate ®," Allstate offers insurance products (auto, home, life and retirement) and services through Allstate agencies, independent agencies, and Allstate exclusive financial representatives, as well as via www.allstate.com and 1-800 Allstate ®. As part of Allstate's commitment to strengthen local communities, The Allstate Foundation, Allstate employees, agency owners and the corporation provided $28 million in 2011 to thousands of nonprofit organizations and important causes across the United States.
