Customer service representative on headsetWith the unemployment rate at 9.6 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, hundreds of people could find the answer to their job woes with a car insurance company.

Progressive Auto Insurance recently announced it will be hiring hundreds of employees at locations across the country. The nation’s fourth-largest car insurance provider has approximately 240 vacancies in Tampa Bay, Fla.; 175 in Austin, Texas; 200 in Colorado Springs, Colo.; and 260 in Cleveland and Mentor, Ohio, to be filled by the end of January 2011.

Progressive recruiting supervisor Kay Krienke says business is going quite well for the company. There are a few simple, yet highly important qualities the company desires in its employees.

“We’re looking for energetic, customer-focused problem solvers who are passionate about offering great service,” says Krienke. “In return, we offer the chance to be part of a culture that embraces risk taking, innovation and diversity, and rewards people for contributing to the company’s success.”

The majority of the open positions are in the sales, service and claims departments.

The car insurance coverage provider says it has more to offer employees than just a paycheck. Progressive employees can take advantage of on-site fitness centers and flexible schedule opportunities.
