On the heels of joining the Allstate family, auto insurer Esurance plans to ramp up its Tampa operations.
Esurance said Friday it is filling up to 40 more sales positions in Tampa as it approaches the busiest season for auto insurance. The new hires are in addition to 30 workers hired so far this year. Average starting salary will be $50,000.
Applicants are urged to attend a job fair that will held from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Hilton Garden Inn, 4328 Garden Vista Drive in Riverview.
On Friday morning, Allstate said it has received all regulatory approvals and closed on its $1 billion acquisition of Esurance and Answer Financial from White Mountains Insurance Group. The Esurance and Allstate brands will remain separate, with Esurance continuing to focus on selling policies online and over the phone.
