Nice to see this SA company doing well..



The good times keep rolling at USAA.
The San Antonio financial services and insurance company announced Tuesday its employees will receive a bonus equal to 18.8 percent of their annual base salary.
That matches the highest bonus ever paid by USAA. The last time it awarded 18.8 percent was in 2010.

I think it's great. I'm a USAA customer and I'm very happy with their service and think they deserve every penny. I bet it makes a huge difference in their lives, too.

Sounds great if there are no caveats so here is a question. Does anyone know if USAA's salaries across all levels and departments tend to be lower than comparable positions at other companies? Their justification would be that you'll make up for it with a likely yearly bonus. Other examples of companies doing this is say when you get offered a choice of a lower salary with higher stock options or higher salary with less stock options or if you are in sales you can get offered a smaller salary with a possible bigger income based on your performance or the company's performance. If USAA's salaries are already on par with the industry and you still get a sizeable bonus then sounds like a great place to work.

I started working there this year, working in the claims department(taking reports and handling single vehicle, no inj claims) and I am making 14.00 an hour, any time working after 6 we get 30% shift differential, any time Saturday or Sunday as well. At the start of the year, we got 24 hours of "flex" time, starting off with earning 5 hours of pto every check, Get a paid holiday every 1/4, paid off all major holidays. Last years christmas bonus was an extra two weeks of pay, also at christmas we go an extra two days paid off.

I had no insurance experience, no college degree. Yes working in a call center enviroment can be annoying at times, but what job cant?

I value job stability over big fat bonuses which is one reason why I wouldn't work at USAA but it is still awesome that they do this. I am happy for the people that work there.

This makes me feel bad. LOL. I couldn't get an interview with USAA before my bachelor's degree, after my bachelor's degree, and now that I'm almost finished with a master's. I've applied a couple of dozen times. Were you formerly in the military?

USAA is a great company my only issue is i wish they would put some of that into a retirement account of some kind. The company I currently work for puts 15% of your total compensation they, take a snap shot then what 15% is, then place into a retirement account without having the employee putting in one penny. We also get a June bonus that ranges from 4-10% (depending on profitability) and then a December bonus set at 6%. (the longer you work here the larger the percentage)

No, but I do have 15 years of customer service experence, It took me 3 interview to get in, and I am in one of the lowest positions while still being a USAA employee, and not a contractor
