    Pros

    Great co-workers, great management, ALL leads paid for by the company, as well as a good pay structure! All the people below that are leaving bad reviews simply couldn't hang, which is an unfortunate side effect of applying for a sales position when you can't sell. My advise, if you want a clock-in, clock-out mindless hourly pay job, go be a ticket ripper.

    Cons

    Whoever operates the thermostat needs their head checked. Hot on hot days, cold on cold days.....boo to you sir, boo.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs to buy a Blazer suite to give to their outstanding employees......

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Velapoint in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for a supervisor position and when HR contact me, she thought that my experience would be better suited in a Sales Manager role. Met with COO. I was asked fairly straightforward management questions. I was not asked about any of my previous accomplishments in a leadership role. They appeared to be concerned with my progressive experience as I have been promoted multiple times and left companies for better opportunities. They were also concerned that I appear to be 23 years old.

    Shortly thereafter I was introduced to the Director of Sales and she then advised me that all employees start as an insurance agent and then have the opportunity to move to a Sales Manager position which contradicted what I was previously told. The Director of Sales did not ask me any questions relative to my experience. She then advised me that I have to pay for insurance agent certification instead of being sponsored by the company as HR had previously advised me.
