Job Description


Founded in 1928 Farmers is the country's third-largest home and auto carrier as well as the top specialty product carrier in the U.S. We have been recognized as the #1 Corporate Training Program by Corporate Exchange USA & Training Magazine. You will have access to the training and support of a business partner with over 80 years of experience. Our Co-Founder John C. Tyler once said, "The measure of our worth is not what we have done for ourselves, but what we have done for others." At Farmers, our core values include integrity, commitment to community service, and serving our customers by providing exceptional customer service and information about products they may need. We help people from all walks of life get into business for themselves, but not by themselves.

You will do so by calling on prospective clients and generating new sales leads while also managing new and existing customer accounts. However, in this career, you will also have the opportunity to participate in several other exciting business activities including:


·     Utilizing Farmers Marketing Systems, or those you may develop, to reach potential customers for our Insurance and Financial Services products


·     Providing excellent customer service to policyholders


·     Attending networking & sales events, trade shows & community events
