Job cuts are again pending at Allstate Corp.'s Roanoke County office, a company spokeswoman said Tuesday.
The Northbrook, Ill., insurer will eliminate positions in "technology and operations," spokeswoman Laura Strykowski said by email. Her email did not say how many jobs will end or when.
"Allstate is constantly looking for areas where improvements can be made and efficiency maximized to remain competitive in the marketplace and better serve our customers," Strykowski's email said.
The company, which employed 900 people locally this past spring, previously confirmed local job cuts in early April, late May and late June through a different spokesman, Adam Polak. Polak did not say how many people were displaced but signaled that the number was small. He said in July that "a couple" of positions were moved overseas.
