The answer will vary depending on if you want to become an Adjuster (one who investigates liability) or an appraiser (one who only estimates vehicle damages.First off, either one can be a very stressful, thankless job. Depending on what company and location you could start as a trainee in the high 20's or low 30's. A good way to get into either position is to get a job as a trainee at a large insurance company. That is where you will get your best training and more importantly experience.Check with jobsites such as www.greatinsurancejobs.com or www.careerbuilder.comYou might also check with any local vocational schools in your area as many of them are beginning to offer classes in becoming an adjuster.Good LuckSource(s):Been and adjuster for way too long.

I started out as a trainee in Workers Comp at a major insurance company years ago. Later became an Auto and Liability adjuster. Finally switched to Insurance Broker in Commercial Lines.Back when I first started, minimum wage was $1.65 an hour and we didn't make a whole lot more than that. I think I was making something like $400 a month when I started. But as I said, that was a long long time ago.
