Allstate Insurance Co. is boosting its sales force in Washington and Oregon to keep pace with growing consumer demand for insurance and financial products and services in those states.

Allstate is looking to fill 116 job opportunities in Washington, including 29 agency owners and five exclusive financial specialists. The insurer is also looking to fill 68 job openings in Oregon. This includes 17 agency owners and five exclusive financial specialists. The remaining jobs in both states will be sales professionals.

Allstate said candidates interested in becoming agency owners will need capital to invest in their agency to help ensure they can successfully fund the normal day-to-day costs associated with opening and running a small business. Sales professionals need no liquid capital to apply for jobs within an agency.

To recruit more agency owners, Allstate is offering up to a $10,000 award to any member of the general public who refers an eligible candidate to Allstate. The referral award is payable after appointment.

“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,” said Allstate’s recruiting manager, Debbie Cooper. “Allstate agents can sell the economic interest in their agency or pass the business they build on to a family member.”
