    I started out at Pilot (actually CMS) a month ago as an O/A buddy but I was snatched up by Dispatch after a week. My goal is to become an OA and I feel like I can move up rather quickly, but I have some questions about becoming an adjuster. First, what licenses should I get first (Alabama is obviously my home state)? Second, can I become an inside adjuster with out being "pilot"? Finally, how much do inside adjusters make?

     

    Thanks

    Why don,t you ask the people at pilot  all these questions they are the only ones who know the answers, I don,t have any idea what you do and I guess some of us  old roof climbers have lost out on 6 months of new lingo.

    As Ray said, ask your coworkers.  I understand the lingo (except for CMS?) because I work for Pilot, but I can't answer your questions about opportunity or pay rates.  Not my side of the business.

    Last I heard, which was quite a while ago, Alabama doesn't use an exam to license new adjusters.  That limits reciprocity with other states.  A Texas or Florida license would be a good idea in that case.  Your coworkers can help you with that, too.  Good luck!

    What exactly are you doing for pilot? What credentials did you have to start with them? I am looking for any way possible to get a food in the door. Even if im doing side work for 10 bucks an hour.

    i am still studying to get my adjusters license so I am new to all of this. What is an OA buddy and a CMS and what is the pay really like; I know someone who works at Pilot and I was told that he/she makes over six figures a year being an inside worker and never being deployed anywhere. How does that happen?

    On your Pilot application, be sure to note you have been a cocktail waitress, blackjack dealer, and an exotic pole dancer. These are admirable qualities that Curtis can understand and appreciate. Write a letter to Davis telling him you would always climb an Insureds ladder, and send Rodney an email expressing your ambition to never return phone calls. Finally, leave a phone message for Tommy Measles saying you think ex-cons are misunderstood. Remember the dress code for Pilot is short shorts, tube tops, and white tennis shoes. You will get bonus points for loudly smacking a wad of bubble gum during your employment interview.

    Ghost, mayby you are a little tough because someone posts a question, with little knowledge and blinded by $ signs. Don't you understand that greed is the new paradigm in this business and it's postboy is our new friend Olegreed. Times have changes and us ole f*rts will by pushed aside by the tech savy and money hungry youngsters. Customer service is on life support. Soon there will be an I Phone ap and newbys won't even need to be trained.
    I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    Maybe your right, 'OA's', 'CMS', 'RCC', 'ACV'. It's all just so much jibberish! If there's no gravy train, no pot-o-gold, no Walmart bag full of dope money in the parking lot to be picked up, I won't lift my eyes up from my text messaging.

    I guess I just plain forgot that work is a four letter word.

    remember the words of that emminent philosopher Joe Walsh. "They say I'm Lazy, but it takes all my time."
