Ray may not be right today with this but there's always tomorrow.

And, some companies have very complete data entry in their files and can tell when the roof was replaced, by whom, with what, ad infinitum.

If they know the roof was replaced 2-3 years ago with XX shingles and a satellite photos shows extensive hail damage, a person with limited experience in scoping damage can adequately handle the file to conclusion and comply with all the directives that would apply.

Yes, Dorothy, this really IS Kansas.

For sure you are a commodity , and you should stop refering to yourself as an adjuster, that is totally bs. Large companies dont want or hire adjusters anymore . You are an estimator or scooper , you will in the near future see the carrier qc or file examiner calling you back for a rewrite on most of your estimates as your pictures dont convince him that there is hail damage etc. Companies like allstate and nationwide are already doing this , they are also settling a large % of claims from the officewith $10 / hr robots . What makes you think you are imporntant to them? How many raises have you gotten in the last 20 years? Please let me know maybee ive been at the wrong place at the wrong time , its happened before.

Almost all large companies have a system where you do all the supplements for free. And they are having estimators measure and diagram roofs even when there is no damage. And o by the way have you not noticed an increasing amount of mexicans and other foreigners  becoming popular as estimators  with the large carriers? I agreee that we all should have a bit of pride in our work but the carrier is not at all impressed by that , you are a number and an expence and as soon as possible you will be eliminated or downsized, stop dreaming , make good investments with that money you are making today.

These carriers also make back door deals with soft ware exploiters like xactimate to rob you of a little more of your money when they could use a program that actually works for 1/4 of the cost to you. Make your future a happy one and stop thinking of your importance as a dedicated employee who actually tries to do it with professionalism, the carrier dont give a rats ass about you or your future,or your pride , they only have an interest in numbers. You can be a top notch adjuster for 25 years and go out on the next storm and be fired because their insured was not happy with their settlement, seen it happen many times. Your not important !!!!!!!!! your just a dreamer if you think otherwise, sorry.

I feel sorry for a person that is sour on cat. adjusting. Try working for any other industry that pays as much money for as little experience as most cat. adjusters have. Insurance claims departments paid me a good living wage for over 45 years. I have no complaints and if I owned an insurance company I would cut as many inside, outside, wrong side out adjusters  as I could.  And I could train people in one week to do the work that hail adjusters do and cut the fee bills by 2/3. Its here now and will be larger next week and ever month thereafter. You will not be called a cat. adjuster. A temp catastrophe employee will be the job descripton.

43 years ago I did not think you could work auto liability claims from a desk. I was sure wrong but I only had two experience working automobile crash, injury and death cases.

I cannot understand why anyone who is so unhappy with what they are doing, would continue to do it.
