Progressive Insurance Hiring For Over 300 Jobs
January 24, 2012 – Progressive Insurance announced they will be adding 337 jobs at their Mayfield Village headquarters. One of the greater Cleveland area’s biggest employers, Progressive will be filling sales, service and claims positions. Nationwide, the insurance company is hiring 1100 additional people.
Progressive is generally considered to be a good place to work. They have a casual, laid back atmosphere and offer comprehensive benefits to all employees, including a form of profit sharing. For what its worth, they were included in the Plain Dealer’s list of best places to work in 2011.
You will, however, have to stop calling Progressive Field the “Jake”, at least during work hours.
The news is consistent with a very positive jobs environment in Northeast Ohio. Many companies, large and small, are hiring across a diverse group of businesses. The unemployment rate in the Cleveland metropolitan area is now under 7%, much better then the state and national averages.
