Great co-workers: Kind people that are sincere and easy to talk to. They are more than happy to help if you need it.
Nice office facility: It'll impress you when you walk in. 26th floor of AT&T Building in downtown Minneapolis.
Poor management: micro-manage, disrespectful, hostile working environment.
Poor pay: commission only and you cover all of your overhead at the firm. The management literally has no skin in the game. I'm surprised they don't have more advisors on their staff. Unless you know someone personally that you can sell a big life insurance policy to right at the get-go, don't bother coming here. It takes a long time to make any money doing this line of work and they provide no help to new workers coming in.
One value at this firm: money. Untrustworthy people at the top.
Advice to Management
Give your new workers a monthly stipend when they first come in. Also, be honest up front to new people coming in about their income potential. Telling people they'll make $50K in their first year is a blatant lie (sure, some do, but the overwhelming majority will be under $30K).

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Minneapolis Financial Group (Minneapolis, MN) in December 2013.
This is a 4-5 step interview process. Overall, it is a very relaxed environment. They look for someone that they would want to hang out with outside of the office. You do a behavioral assessment and then they see if you match up with their management team. You are interviewing to be entered into their training program in the spring/summer. By fall they have narrowed it down to just a few.
- Never had a specific question that challenged you intellectually. It was all very subjective. They are hiring someone who is charismatic yet intimate. Answer Question

Not the right career path for me. Chose corporate America instead.
