Support from management

Managers have their favorite people whom they support and take excessive smoking breaks with.

Freedom to work independently

Micromanagement to an unreal level. It's possible to fail a call even on things that don't have anything to do with the legality of a sale.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Direct transfer of inbound leads to an agent who's able to help them (based on licensing) during normal business hours.
  • Reduce the number of contact attempts to every 3 hours
  • Advise customers of other options for their coverage

What I like about the company

It's a job. The building is climate controlled.

What I dislike about the company

Calling people on an hourly basis, day after day, just upsets them. Not giving customers full information about available products doesn't feel right.

Company Culture

Company culture was marginal.

Support from management

Employees are mistreated in some cases by the managers not supporting them every way they can.

Challenging Work

Proud of the work effort I put in during my time.
