Allstate issued the following announcement on Oct. 2.
Allstate is expanding and bringing more than 200 new job opportunities to Missouri. The company is hiring for positions in agencies and sales in the Show-Me State, including 20 Allstate agency owners.
"We're growing and have an opportunity for entrepreneurs to become agency owners in a very reliable industry," said Travis Peterson, Strategic Deployment Leader. "Candidates don't need an insurance background. We're in search of individuals with a strong entrepreneurial drive and the passion to help households in the communities where they work and live. The ideal candidate wants to build a legacy they can pass down for generations."
Allstate is seeking entrepreneurs with an enthusiasm to own* and operate their business and make a positive impact in their community. As a small business owner, Allstate agents own an economic interest in their business. This gives them the freedom to sell to a qualified buyer or back to Allstate. They can also pass it on to their children or another family member.
"I love that as a business owner, I can be there for my family while also helping people protect what matters most to them," said Allstate agent Paul Banister. "It is a true ownership opportunity as opposed to the competitors who don't let you own your book of business." Banister currently owns two agencies – one in Chesterfield, Mo. and the other in Springfield, Mo. Through both, he has been successful growing his business while also giving back to the communities.
A common theme among successful Allstate Agency Owners is the strong belief in being there for their customers and communities. They build a thriving business by working hard to develop trusting, personal, long-term relationships.
"I absolutely love being an Allstate agent," said St. Louis agent Tracie Bibb. "I get to help the people in my community by protecting what matters most to them, but I also get to volunteer in the community to help make a difference."
Allstate offers a $5,000 award to anyone who refers a qualified candidate. The referral award is payable upon the appointment of the candidate as an Allstate agency owner. To refer candidates, please call Kory Hansen at 303-779-3920.
