Michigan Insurance Group Team

Unified Purpose:

We love helping people!

Vision Statement:

To help people while growing our agency.

The Agency

Michigan Insurance Group started in 2002. But we acquired an agency that was much older than us, which means technically we have been helping Michigan clients since 1976! At Michigan Insurance Group we are committed to personalized service as we work to provide our clients with insurance coverage for their homes, autos, businesses and more. We believe that our clients deserve coverage that fits their lifestyle best. 

This position is based in Muskegon.

If you don’t know much about us, you should check out our social media. We are utilizing Facebook, Instagram and can be found on Google with quite a few positive reviews!

Though you would be an employee of MIG and part of the entire team, in the beginning your primary interactions would be with our Director of Operations, Karlee Miller and our Agency President, Don Shampine.

Watch the videos below to learn a bit about them.

The License

You do not need a license to apply for this position. The primary requirements for working for MIG is a love for helping people a passion for learning, and desire to be part of a team.

You will need a license to work for MIG, but don’t worry, we will help you through that process!


We believe that people need time away from the office and encourage you to take vacation. The first year you are allowed 10 days of PTO prorated to the calendar year and after the completion of your first year it moves to 15 days of PTO. 

We also get 7 to 9 holidays off each year as part of your PTO so you can spend that time with your family and friends.

The Harmony

At MIG we seek harmony between our work life and home life. We feel families and free time are important. All companies will say this, but we demonstrate it by building flexibility into our operations.

Our Operating Hours: Monday – Thursday 8:30-5:00 and Friday 8:30-4:00 (3:00 in Summer)

This is the time that our office is open and operational for our staff.

 Our office Hours: Monday – Thursday 9:00-5:00 and Friday 9:00-4:00 (3:00 in Summer)

This is the time we will be available to clients.

What’s the difference? The difference is, some staff will be here at 8:30 while others will be here by 9. If your role is generally done inside the office, the expectation is to be at your desk and ready to work by 9:00. If you are here earlier, that’s great as you will have more time to prepare for your day. We want people to have some flexibility with their mornings to deal with getting kids to school, or early dentist or doctors’ appointments, without fear of burning up PTO or concerns about others staff frustrations.

Also, our right to disconnect policy helps separate working hours and personal hours. We can’t stop all communications that happen outside of our business hours. What we can do is ensure that you are not obligated to engage while on personal time. We want you to enjoy your time away from the office.
