When is the last time you felt like you made a difference to your employer and in the job you do? Been awhile?


Our employees at Strategic Comp DO make a difference and feel appreciated for it. In fact we received 98% rating for overall job satisfaction from the participants in our last employee survey, making it no surprise that our employee turnover is less than 3%. This clearly indicates the passion and energy our staff has for our company and for the job they do . . . and they never want to work anywhere else!

A big reason for these successes is due to our careful matching of the right job with the right person. Currently we have an opening for a Field Claims Specialist in your territory.

Are you innovative, high energy, resilient, determined, assertive, clever, and competitive? Do you see each new claim as a puzzle to work and a challenge to be won? Does this sound like you? If so, this might be the right job for you.

AFG's common stock is listed and traded on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") and NASDAQ under the symbol "AFG".

Here's what we do. We insure workers' compensation coverage for large companies, using our deductible program. Our service in claims and loss control is second to none.
