I joined American National in 2017 as an Associate Underwriter.  The training program was wonderful and helped set me up for success in my new position.  I enjoy staying busy and learning new things, so I was able to pick up additional responsibilities, as well as take insurance courses to further my education in this field.  There are plenty of opportunities for advancement.  Management wants to see us succeed and gives us tools to achieve our goals.  Recently, I was promoted to Lead Associate Underwriter.  I am very excited to see what the future has in store throughout my career with American National.” -Azia, American National Employee since 2017


“When I got hired as an Associate Underwriter, I was excited and nervous as I didn’t know what to expect. Little did I know, that it would be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The work ethic we have in our department is incredible. Everyone who I’ve come into contact with has been supportive, knowledgeable and strives to be better; which inspires me to go outside of my comfort zone and really challenge myself. As an Associate Underwriter, you encounter different agents every day, and help them in ways only you can do. Also, there’s an analytical side to this position that makes you feel like a detective.
