12 Replies and 5627 Views Jumping fromyour old job to cat. claims  5627  12 Started by  Ray Hall I have been seeing more and more of these post since 2005. Its a good place to make a decent living, but not 100 of the people who try succeed. The present system is a vendor(contractor) stands between you and the insurance company who is the person that needs your work product. You will need about 60 days training to do a passable job. many people have gone further with less, but they got over their head and had someone to pull them out. All the people or rather closed mouth about who they wor...

13 Replies and 4243 Views Ray, how do you really feel ?  4243  13 Started by  Ray Hall On the topic of new people, this is how I really feel. If you have a bachelors degree go to work for a insurance carrier. And, not in claims, underwriting. If you have never been happy doing what you have been doing since you got out of high school and want to get into cat. adjusting, some get lucky, but that 10 is only about 10 (I think). I really think a job you like or can put up with thats in the 5 k per month range with some perks is better than a gross of 150K on the road 6-9 moths ...

11 Replies and 9916 Views Starting out at Pilot  9916  11 Started by  RSC I started out at Pilot (actually CMS) a month ago as an O/A buddy but I was snatched up by Dispatch after a week. My goal is to become an OA and I feel like I can move up rather quickly, but I have some questions about becoming an adjuster. First, what licenses should I get first (Alabama is obviously my home state) Second, can I become an inside adjuster with out being 'pilot' Finally, how much do inside adjusters make &160; Thanks

16 Replies and 3724 Views Training School Wars and Integrity  3724  16 Started by  JimAustin So many posts i read on this forum are about certain schools being dishonest and how you shouldn't attend their classes or how one company is so much better than the other.  Some very seasoned and experienced adjusters have posted several replies on this site that in my opinion they should be ashamed of.  Where has the honor gone in our industry  Each and every one of you that are professional bloggers on this site.  Take a good look in the mirror and ask yourselves if maybe...

2 Replies and 3147 Views Alabama Non-Resident Licensure; Office Requirement  3147  2 Started by  jtcwik Good Morning!Recently I have encountered some push back from the Alabama DOI that requires an office location for a non-resident adjuster license.  This in and of itself is in direct contradiction with a 'non-resident' status.  Also, the statute was written pre-internet in 1971.  It is my belief that the intent of the law was for records access, which at the time and most of us 'seasoned' professionals will recall, consisted of paper files.  My firm currently uses an Online C...

13 Replies and 4180 Views Hazmat for the upcoming Hurricane Season  4180  13 Started by  wstj I'm curious about the effect of the recent oil spill,(leak), on the upcoming hurricane season with respect to training. The introduction of oil into the storm surge is going to make an already difficult task considerably worse. And I wounder about whether each adjuster will be required to go through some sort of hazmat training. The EPA will surely be all over it. Would such training be handled at the storm site or would it make sense to be proactive and attend a class, somewhere And where migh...

18 Replies and 3224 Views Certifications and licenses guarantee a worse product  3224  18 Started by  Bobabooey Adjusting has become similar to a lot of business. The government forces adjusters or agents or plumbers or whatever to get licenses. This does several things. It raises revenue for the governent, it allows the government to get involved in private business, and it makes a lot of money for schools that open that make a profit off of the governments law. No longer is it important to have experience and knowledge. It has been replaced by certifications and licenses. For instance if you try...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
First off, I would like to thank all of you seasoned adjusters that take the time to answer questions such as this.   I will soon be a 3-day newbie, and it seems there is a lack of hands on education in my area (LaPorte Texas: 30 min east of Houston)  A friend I worked with just finished a course and will soon have his license, and we are both concerned that IF we are called for an event that we could possibly make mistakes that would at best cause us to be sent home and not be calle...
