They’re not guaranteed jobs and they don’t have to promise to work for Allstate Insurance Co., but military veterans get a small salary, free meals and a place to live during a month-long training program designed by the company to prepare them for careers in insurance and financial services.
Allstate’s Military Veteran Licensed Sales Professional Training Program enrolls veterans who have been honorably discharged from active military duty within four years.
It even pays their travel expenses to the training site.
The four-week course consists of classroom education and hands-on experience, including company-specific sales training. Graduates can earn their state insurance licenses, and agency owners affiliated with the firm offer entry-level jobs to some graduates.
