About Allstate Corporation

For over 80 years, Allstate has been the premier trendsetter in the insurance industry. Allstate had its beginnings in the fall of 1930 when Sears Roebuck & Co. President General Robert E. Wood started an auto insurance company, originally selling policies by mail. Allstate soon changed its sales model to include agent representation and opened its first office location in Chicago. Allstate operates under its mission statement of keeping people in “Good Hands,” offering an array of insurance products to help protect families and businesses alike.

Today, Allstate is based in Northbrook, Ill., with offices located across North America and Canada, housing more than 40,000 employees. Allstate provides opportunities for a wide spectrum of skills and talents. For example, individuals looking to begin or continue a career in marketing could apply for positions such as content producer, designer, or art director. Additionally, Allstate is always looking for agency owners and licensed sales professionals to support its more than 16 million customers. These opportunities come with unique perks such as working from home or for a small business.

Allstate promotes diversity and acceptance, in and out of the workplace. In 2018, Allstate partnered with the nonprofit organization GenderCool, which aims to combat misinformation regarding transgenderism. Allstate supports GenderCool with its own PRIDE employee resource group, which was created with the mission of furthering the causes of the LGBTQ+ community. Other recent partnerships include The Trevor Project, which provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention, and Instituto del Progreso Latino, which supports Latino immigrants and their families.
