The Property and Casualty Group is among the oldest in the United States, dating from the founding of our flagship company, Great American Insurance Company, in 1872. The P&C Group is made up of approximately 30 niche specialty insurance industries that focus on specialized commercial products and services for businesses.

Strong businesses play a crucial role in our communities. But their owners face more risks than ever. A lawsuit or a stroke of bad luck could set them back—or wipe them out completely—if they don’t have the right coverage. They count on knowledgeable insurance agents to help them manage the risks inherent in their industry, as well as their unique business circumstances.

Great American Insurance can help you provide innovative and affordable insurance solutions for your customers’ insurance needs. We’ve been insuring businesses—and strengthening great communities—for generations.

You’ll find that Great American is structured like a network of small businesses. All of our companies and divisions design products and build relationships in the markets and communities they serve. That means less red tape for you, and faster answers for your customers. You’ll always work directly with the experts in each specialty line, and get the personal attention you deserve.

Company culture

You will never get out of trucking, advance or get promoted. You will stay at the same job you were hired in for. Period. Don't even try to leave. They never let anyone out of trucking

Support from Management

The leadership is poor. Employees have zero say in the decision making process. Management constantly changes goals so employees never reach them so you always have something to work towards
