Allstate and Allstate Agencies Seek to Bring Over 750 Jobs to Illinois

- Offers $15,000 referral bonus to the public for recommending qualified candidates -

Allstate Insurance Company announced a boost to its sales force in Illinois to keep pace with growing consumer demand for insurance and financial products and services in the state.

"We are seeing increased demand for all types of consumer protection, ranging from auto and home insurance to financial advice and planning to smartphone and identity theft products," says Allstate's strategic deployment leader, Matt Stevens. "We are seeking driven professionals and offering comprehensive training and resources to support the success for each of them."

The 750 professionals Allstate is seeking in Illinois is comprised of three roles: agency owners and exclusive financial specialists, with the remaining hired by those small business owners as sales professionals. For the agency owner and financial specialist opportunities, Allstate is seeking individuals with a strong entrepreneurial drive and passion to help others in their community. These candidates embrace risks and challenges and are able to invest in a small business to ensure its stability and growth.

The search spans the entire state as Allstate is seeking approximately 250 individuals in the Chicago area, 250 amongst the northern and western suburbs, and 200 in the southern region. The addition of the new agency locations will have a compounding effect on each city's job market, as each new agency opens with several employees to ensure customers are well-served with courtesy and efficiency.

To recruit more agency owners, Allstate is offering a $15,000 award to any member of the general public who refers an eligible candidate to Allstate. The referral award is payable after the candidate has completed 90 days of Allstate agency ownership. [1]

"Allstate is a trusted brand and an excellent wealth-building opportunity for a small business owner. We are unique among all other insurers because the agent owns the economic interest in their business," says Stevens. "Allstate agents can sell the economic interest in their agency or pass the business they build on to a family member as part of their legacy."

As a small business owner with Allstate, hard work is rewarded with a higher earnings potential, and there's no cap on what an individual can make. The majority of Allstate agency owners earn between $170,000 and $450,000 gross annual revenue. [2]

Allstate agency owners can leverage one of America's most recognized brands without ever having to pay a franchise or licensing fee. Candidates interested in becoming an Allstate agency owner need a minimum of $100,000 of liquid capital to invest in their agency. This money does not go to Allstate; it helps ensure the agency can successfully fund the normal day-to-day costs associated with opening and running a business. Sales professionals do not need liquid capital to apply.
