Employee Testimonials

Why our employees love ERIE

Working in claims is one of the most noble and rewarding career paths because you get to help people every day. The work can be demanding sometimes, but ERIE creates a supportive environment. You’ll gain the skills you need to succeed through ongoing and hands-on training at ERIE’s state-of-the-art Technical Learning Center. ERIE also gets work/life balance and offers flexible work arrangements. Many claims employees work from home. ERIE’s claims team is one of the industry’s best-kept secrets.

Steven Murphy

Property Claims Supervisor, Canton, Ohio

Erie Insurance is not like the rest of the industry. Erie Insurance is very forward thinking, people driven, innovative, and we celebrate Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. The culture here is something you can’t touch. Sure, we are a Fortune 500 company and we have advanced technology to help us do our jobs, but in the end, ERIE is a company that is focused on its people.

Angel Kramer
Branch Manager, Canton, Ohio

When I started at Erie as an intern 20 years ago, I could never have imagined the road my career would take.  From that very first day on the job, I discovered ERIE was made up of a community of co-workers who were willing to support and encourage me and of a culture that encouraged and welcomed people to use their strengths and develop their talents.  With that support, I’ve found myself able to advance my reach and give back to the company in various roles and several departments.  I’m grateful for my personal experience and know that wherever your interests and talents lie, Erie Insurance will provide an excellent environment to reach and exceed your career expectations.

Sarah Shine

SVP, Commercial Products Division

Working at ERIE changed my perspective entirely about our industry, as I didn’t realize our operating model and culture existed in the business. Our greatest differentiator is our people: employees and agents who are truly committed to working together for the good of our customers. If you’re interested in management, ERIE offers training, insurance licensing support, on-the-job experience and more. Managers are empowered to make decisions without levels of bureaucracy. Opportunities with Erie Insurance are limitless.
