Auto insurer aims to hire 325 in Sacramento

Progressive Group of Insurance Cos., which bills itself as the fourth-largest auto insurer in the nation, plans to hire 325 people in Sacramento by the end of the year, part of a nationwide push of 7,500 hires in 2018.

The Ohio-based insurer said Tuesday that it is looking to fill positions in information technology, analyst, customer care, claims and corporate.

The company said most of the jobs are based at Progressive offices, “but hundreds more are remote work opportunities.”

New hires will be eligible to participate in the company’s annual bonus plan. Progressive also said it offers medical, dental, vision and life insurance benefits, plus training programs and career-development options.
