    "Claims Advisor"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I have been working at Aviva Canada

    Pros

    If u are desperate to have a job, Aviva is right for you.

    Cons

    1. seniority means nothing! 2. Shifts. They implement things just a blink on an eye! They do not care about there employees and don't care about their customers either! Rbc Values changes from customer first to I don't care, you are just a number. Leaders doesn't have technical knowledge to adjust a claim. When u ask a question regarding complex Claims, they have to ask to another employee because they do not know the answer. Rbc insurance was good. Aviva is the worst company. Exactly what other review says. Stay away! You will regret it! Work+life balance is not their priority. You have to record how long u pee in the bathroom and how long u talk to your coworker.
