Yes sir, my 'Bama boy,
You have pointed out the one true racial color that overshadows all others. The color green. The greener you is, the more powerful you be.
The pursuit of formal degrees are percieved as a pathway to the emerald enlightenment of Greentown. I note that the P.A. ad entices with 'six-figures' in compensation. I hope this is not too much of a come on, the carriers will need to up their salaries from a figuerative minimum wage to be "competitive".

AMEN, Big Time! Since we'uns here aren't on the company group health plan with the $7.00 prescription benefit, or the profit sharing/retirement plan, or even the free coffee at the office, who is there to be loyal to? Should we fall onto our swords in praise of the latest, greatest management scheme to increase quarterly profits thru the elimination of another adjusters job? Oh, yeah, we'll also be needing a chorus of halleluias for the free estimates and photos being had from the contractors the honchos are in cahoots with.
Yep, this sarcasm is being brought to you courtesey of the University of Hard Knocks. The only place in the Cosmos advanced degrees can be earned in such diverse fields as, 'If they wont look out for you, look out for yourself', 'Loyalty is a two way street, look both ways before crossing', and that all time favorite, 'Money Talks and BS Walks'.
If the P.A.'s want to find employees here and the carriers don't like it, those carriers need to start hiring us instead.

Bill, I kind of think - so what? I'd personally rather see a PA firm looking for adjusters, than roofers trying to get adjusters to do their work.
A PA firm would / should be looking for an adjuster who is well versed in coverage, negotiation, and a knowledge of the "characteristics" of a good hand full of carrier claims departments. I see the result of that as a lot more honorable use of our profession than what a roofer would ask an adjuster to do for commission.
As for your NFA comparison of their branch "attitudes", isn't that generally the same for any carrier or I/A offices with many branches?
Policy - whether insurance contracts or corporate directives - are interpreted by people; therein lies the intangible ingredient that often blends for a different receipe.

I was really surprised to see that a PA was offering employment opportunities on a site like this. I wanted to see what the rest of you guys thought about this. While in Buffalo, I dealt with NFA and found the group to be reasonable and easy to deal with. I dealt with Rochester NFA and they were the most difficult group you have every run across. Hard to believe, about a group that is only 70 miles away from each other and under the same management. I just wanted to get some discussion from you guys on the PA's.
