Question 2 of 25
How do you handle a larger than average workload?
Professional Answers Preview
"When I have a large workload on my plate, I do not stress over the tasks that are in front of me. Rather, I make a simple plan of which tasks are a high priority and which tasks are a lower priority. The higher priority tasks, I complete first. Through this system, I can focus on my tasks individually, rather than stress out by the multitude of tasks ahead of me."
The interviewer wants to be assured that you can handle the workload required of you as a claims adjuster and that you will not become overwhelmed if/when workloads unexpectedly increase. When workloads increase, stress levels do too. How do you react?
More Answer Examples
Entry Level Example
"Here are some suggestions on how to handle a large workload: - List your tasks and prioritize them - Think of which functions add to the company's bottom line, and start there (Closest to the money!) - Exhale. Relax for a minute and collect yourself - Organize your tasks by which ones you can complete independently and which ones you need help with - Take sufficient breaks, so you do not exhaust yourself - Communicate your struggles with your leadership or team"
Experienced Example
"My workload is packed but consistent. The only time it gets hectic is if we've had a lot of assessments and I've gotten behind in my files. My work schedule leaves no room for error; I have an endless amount of claims to get through. So, I'm used to having an incredibly full workload."

1.
Professionally I had to transition form medical yo insurance but I remained upbeat and was successful in both careers.
2.
My brother drowning at a nearby dam. I reacted fast to remove him since I had good swimming skills.
3.
When I lost my dad. I wasn't born yet when he died so I wasn't able to deal with it at the time but I have had to deal with it my whole life. I deal with it by talking to him and leaning on other family members for support and for them to tell me stories about how he was.
4.
The most difficult period of my life was having two family members who were terminally ill at the same time. The way I dealt with it was one day at a time.
5.
It was the first time I was laid off from a job which I worked for almost 10 years. I really like that job and I missed my ex-colleagues. Fortunately the paid my a long-service pension which was 10 months of my monthly salary. I used these money to join a cooking course. Since I always worked overtime before and never have time to cook, I started to cook from that period of time till now. Cooking becomes part of my daily live.
6.
I had an incident where I suffered a severe head injury. I was in and out of consciousness for 4 days. When I was back to reality I had some minor external injuries but had a moderately severe cerebral edema. I had long term memory, and immediate short term memory but no memory of people around me that I didn't have not just daily but multiple interactions with on a daily basis. Head full of noise, mom walking down street, cal-trans worker buying his co-worker an oranch soda. I couldn't add 2+2. I mean I would know the answer, but I just couldn't get it to compute in my head to what the answer was. I thought to myself "well Allen", this is what its like to be dumb. Now you know. And it was so odd, because I would think to myself "well Allen, you're going to dumb for the rest of you life" but I couldn't bring myself to care. I was just "oh well", as if I was too dumb to care that I was dumb. It took around 6 months for my head to clear and regain most of my mid term memory back and return to work. It was at this point that I began to really examine my life and what I was doing. I had a greater appreciation for people, a greater appreciation of life itself and actually living it. It was then that after looking at what I was doing for work, even though I was really good at, I liked my job, I liked my co-workers. I thought to myself I want to be out in the world mingling with the public every day. I don't want to be in an office all day long. So I decided to pursue a career in outside sales. I didn't do that over night. I worked another 3 months to be certain I didn't just have some type of temporary brain damage that was causing me to think that. I wanted to allow myself to get back into the routine of my job and see if I just didn't click back in. But I still had the same feelings and so I looked around to see what I might want to do. My girlfriend made the suggestion "you like wine" why don't you look at that and what it takes to be a wine salesperson". So I did. I gave a 90 day notice to allow sufficient time to find a replacement and at the end of that I was off and into the wine business.
7.
Work related- I was having this challenge whereby a certain family was having those individuals who were not willing that a postmortem be conducted to their family member, I was suppossed to intervene to deal with this situation.

Looking after my children alone juggling a job day to day life and gaining my degree. I'm still here to live another day so quite well really.

About Claims Adjuster

February 12th, 2017

A Claims Adjuster is also referred to as an Insurance Adjuster or Claims Handler. An Adjuster is responsible for assessing policyholder claims that come through an insurance company. Investigating the policyholders claim is the beginning of a Claims Adjuster's role and may include negotiating a payout from the insurance company to the claimant. A Claims Adjuster can find employment with any Insurance Agency.

Professional mannerisms and great communication skills are key to the success of a Claims Adjuster. An Adjuster may need to work directly with Physicians, Law Enforcement, Lawyers and other professionals who may be required to give their professional opinion on the health and well-being of a claimant or the state of their property.

A Claims Adjuster is required to perform investigatory related tasks associated with car accidents and personal injury, for example. A strong memory and keen eye are some characteristics that may be important for an Adjuster to possess. Negotiation skills are a must-have as a Claims Adjuster must make recommendations for insurance payout amounts based on each individual policy and situation. Claims Adjusters should be very detail oriented since organization and precision are vital to a claim's accuracy. Every single detail matters when it comes to an insurance claim.

A post-secondary degree can greatly improve one's ability to gain employment as an Adjuster. A degree in Business, Finance, or Administration may be desired. A post-secondary degree may not always be required to gain employment as a Claims Adjuster; however, one must always be properly licensed. Licensing may change between States so it's important to check for policies and regulations when moving from State to State.
