Posted on Feb 12 Portland, OR


Farmers Insurance is expanding in the Portland Metro area, and we at the local District Office are looking to find driven and highly-motivated individuals to fill a couple of openings. Our District Office is one of the longest tenured in all of Farmers, featuring a support staff that is one of the largest and most experienced in the company. We are an office that focuses on high achievement, having been chosen for President's Council, the highest honor a district can receive, multiple years in a row. At the same time, we also make sure to have lots of fun, fostering a welcoming, open, and supportive culture. We recognize the commitment our agents make to grow their business and support their clients; therefore, we're proud to provide them with the financial support necessary to grow a business and other excellent rewards, including:

  • Financial subsidy in addition to new business commissions and renewal commissions
  • Lead generation tools and services
  • Continual professional development in sales, product, marketing and customer service
  • Health, Dental & Vision Plans
  • Life Insurance
  • Long-term Disability
  • Awards, recognition and various sales bonuses
  • Luxury Trips
  • Build equity in a business you own
  • Ability to sell the rights to your service commissions

  • and more!

Agent Responsibilities
You will solicit new prospects, sell our products and services, and assist existing clients as necessary. You will also network within your community -- attending networking events, sales conferences, and trade shows to market your business and target your preferred audience.
