Lindsay: They're not sure how the procedure goes or what's going to happen.

Chris: State Farm's number one. And they expect number one.
Tina: Claims is a stressful job.
Abbey: The most stressful thing about my job is multi-tasking.

Abbey: We do get yelled at and we do get cursed at sometimes.
Jeff: I think every job you're going to go through a certain amount of stress.
Lindsay: You just have to have a sense of humor because there are days where it's long.
Tina: The long hours, the nights, the weekends.
Chris: Trying to get to all the customers out there that need help when the phones are crazy.
Esperanza: Breathe in, breathe out. Take it one step at a time and keep going.
Jeff: When you can go to teammates and have them help you out, it just ... it takes a lot of stress off of you.

Jeff: When you hear somebody say that you helped them through a tough time in their life, I mean, you can't help but feel good about that.
Abbey: I've had customers cry with gratitude because I've helped them in a situation where they didn't know what to do.
Chris: You're the person getting the check out to them and helping them that way.
Esperanza: Five years from now I would like to see myself in a management or supervisor position.
Jeff: You need to keep on improving yourself. You need to pick a direction you want to go and start working towards it.

Esperanza: Being able to help other employees like me that may be bilingual or may be interested in the Hispanic market.
