    I have been working at Independent Producers of America as a contractor

    Pros

    The company has a great environment and most of advisors are there for many years, which is very positive.

    Cons

    If you are a beginner you will be on your own. The trainings and meetings are not enough to build expertise. There is no formal training process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Independent Producers of America (Atlanta, GA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    My initial underdstanding of the company was based on reveiwing the company web site and introduction video after receiving a email from one of their representatives. An interview was requested on a certain date and time. I sent a follow up email to the representive to confirm but didn't recieve a reply. I called to confirm but there seemed to be some confusion due to what seemed to be a understaffed swicthboard operator and appointment scheduler who told me some of their representatives could make appointments on their own. A interview was set. I went to the interview. The interview only lasted a hour which was enough time for me to get a better understanding of the position. The interview itself was very informative. The postition was explained and my questions were answered and expanded on to give me a better perspective. The interviewer was very forth comming and honest. The office was nice. The work cultrue of those few I met at the office I can give no feedback on other than they seemed focusd on their work but polite. The interview was only interrupted once.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have the resources to get you by untill you can make a commission sell?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    There were three reasons I decline. First, as a insurance sales person (a position I wasn't aware I was interviewing for) you have to pay for a license to the state which is around $300.00 in order to sell life/heath insurance. The second reason was that it was explained to me that the trainning period lasted usually a minimum of a couple of weeks to two months for which there was no compensation. The last reason was that pay was commission based.
