Great American Custom

"I enjoy going to work each day. I have found people who mentor me, who support me, who make me laugh and most importantly who continually challenge me. I believe people make an organization great and that is clearly evident at Great American."
I joined Great American Custom right after I graduated from college. I started as an associate production underwriter and was promoted within a year to production underwriter. The Company’s learning & development opportunities are an enormous asset to my career and personal development. There are seminars that you can attend and articles that you can read on numerous topics from emotional intelligence to underwriting trends in the marketplace.
Great American is also supportive of employees having a work life balance and taking care of their health. We are encouraged to take paid time off and participate in health and wellness programs that reward us for leading healthy active lifestyles. It all goes back to encouraging employees to live a full productive and happy life.
I enjoy going to work each day. Everyone I interact with on daily basis from my boss, to my brokers, to my co-workers all add worth to my day. I have found people who mentor me, who support me, who make me laugh and most importantly who continually challenge me. I believe people make an organization great and that is clearly evident at Great American.

"The best words to describe working at Great American are career empowerment because the company provides employees the building blocks they need to manage their own careers."
Not only are we given on-the-job training, we also have access to Great American University, which provides learning opportunities for employees at all career and skill levels. From instructor-led programs and online courses, to early career development and financial assistance to pursue professional designations and degrees - employees have so many opportunities to grow professionally. As an associate underwriter, I currently provide account support and manage small accounts and renewals. My career goal is to become a senior underwriter and manage my own book of business. I am grateful for the educational resources available to help me reach it.
Great American not only has benefits to help you succeed in your career, the company also provides benefits to help you invest in your retirement. I am able to save money for my future by contributing and receiving a company match to my 401(k) Retirement and Savings Plan and health savings account. I can also purchase our parent company stock at a discounted rate through our Employee Stock Purchase Plan, which makes me feel I have a personal investment in Great American and can contribute to its financial success.
"From the moment I joined the Company, I knew this would be a unique and rewarding place to work."
I enjoy coming to work each day because I can make a difference in an injured worker’s life. Republic specializes in Workers’ Compensation insurance so I’m able to help injured workers with their claims. Being fluent in Spanish and Korean has helped me to better communicate with our policyholders, which helps build trust and a relationship with them while giving them the best service possible.
The Company is committed to investing in employees, and it feels great to be able to give back, share the Company vision and make a contribution to the Company’s success.
