An Insider's view of American Auto Shield

What are some social events your company does?

Working with a remote team has been a challenge coordinating social events, but we’ve overcome it with virtual happy hours, team lunches, and special events like virtual haunted house tours over Teams. Even though I do not live in the same state with the majority of my team, I feel really connected to them due to our virtual events.
