Berkshire Hathaway Homestate Companies Omaha, NE

Job Description

Want to work for a Berkshire Hathaway company? Here’s your opportunity! 

 

We are a commercial property & casualty insurance company looking to fill entry-level underwriting positions. We consider a variety of backgrounds and do not require insurance experience. Our on-the-job training provides the right candidate the opportunity to be successful in this position. 

 

What is underwriting? Insurance underwriters use analytical skills to review information from an applicant to evaluate the degree of risk involved in a business or operation to determine if the applicant should be approved for a policy. The underwriter then uses our technology and data to determine the coverages to provide and the premium to be charged for the risk.

Our underwriting professionals utilize strong communication and customer service skills by asking questions and making decisions over the phone and via e-mail with our agents.

 

Looking for an excellent benefits package? We offer a retirement and savings plan with dollar for dollar 5% company match, a paid upfront education reimbursement program, and health, dental, vision, life, disability and accidental death and dismemberment plans.

 

Health conscious? Our wellness program is integrated into the Company culture with a brand new on-site fitness center and an online wellness portal that offers a year-round, one-stop-shop to manage and track all areas of health, plus more.

 

Want to get involved? Our Emerging Professionals Group offers opportunities for volunteerism, social gatherings and professional development on a quarterly basis. 

 

Worried about parking downtown? Don’t be. The Company subsidizes the majority of the cost. The most you’ll pay is $5 a month.

 

We hope you’ll consider joining us!
