The jobs range from $16 an hour for an initial claims associate to $17.75 an hour for several other positions.
No claims or insurance experience is required, said Cliff Brown, a recruiter for State Farm.
“We need multitasking abilities,” he said, such as “navigating multiple computer screens and talking to customers on the phone.”
Claims associates take calls from customers reporting accidents or damages and then look up policy information and arrange for tow trucks and rental cars, Brown said.
