Not important until you make a sale without training!
Support from management
Went out 3 times with a manager. Didn't make a sale in a week and was told the leads were recycled. Other agents in the office had the same leads so customers irritated about being called many times.
What team work?
Freedom to work independently
Don't work NO pay!
Had to go introduce myself to the owners. They don't even acknowledge you until you make a sale
Anyone who is willing to take this on is accepted!
Attitude towards older colleagues
They hired a 80 year old when I was there and I thought it was great! They did not take him seriously and when he complained about the leads not being great again they said maybe its you! NOT RIGHT!
you are on your own!
Overall compensation for your work
If the leads and business was there the money is good!
Office / Work Environment
Didn't want us to talk to each other in fear we would figure things out! Mandatory Monday and Thursday in office.
Not great! If you are not working 6 days a week and 12 hours a day you are not making money!
Good image but beware choose a great office with helpful people
They don't tell you that if you don't make a sale in 30 days you get a letter terminating contract. NO notice and NO conversation trying to help with training or leads.
I was excited to get in and get going> I was great at this, still get calls from customers with questions, but this particular office was not good for a beginning Life agent!
Inclusive / Diverse
Aflac is a better company! They have marketing behind them and the tools to get he job done correctly.
Suggestions for improvement
- Don't pump people up with false promises that you don't deliver on.
It is a difficult job without much training or promised GOOD leads.
What I like about the company
Good Products and a definite need for insurance. You need to get in with a good manager or you will sink!
What I dislike about the company
Bringing people in on false pretenses. Some quit current jobs to work here and promised expenses paid, license reimbursement and warm leads but once in the field learned none of this was true. I had 176 appointments and made only 3 sales! Most were over 80 years old (or older) or had been seen within the past year. ended up costing more then I was making.
