Allstate hiring 100 agents statewide in push to boost auto insurance business

Allstate plans to add more than 100 agents in Florida this year, including 34 in the central region, as part of a push to expand its auto insurance presence statewide.

The program, which targets mid-career and mid-level managers with a financial or sales background, has a price of entry. Candidates need a minimum of $50,000 of liquid capital to invest in their new agency.

In addition to bolstering its auto line, Allstate said it's trying to boost its coverage of boats, recreational all-terrain vehicles and motorcycles.

Allstate insures 1.7 million cars and trucks in Florida, and its property insurance subsidiary, Castle Key, has pledged to write new homeowners and rental policies after years of contraction.

Interested candidates can apply to become an agent at or call toll-free 1-877-711-1006 for more information.
