    Incompetent Management at the District Level

    BE Careful (Former Employee)

    ProsAMBA has a great nche and phenomenal approach to reaching a segment of the market, retired or active teachers. 75% commission on Life and Cancer, 35% on LTC

    ConsYou are a Captive Agent
    1099 employee; however, management acting as if you are a salaried employee
    Zero Compensation during Fast Start Training although you will be using your own finances for gas, ride alongs with your Manager
    98% of the leads are NOT HOT Leads, as written in the letter sent to your home if you are being recruited- a HOT lead is not doing reverse address look up to find a phone number to someone who may or may not be an educator
    District Managers who are incompetent, overbooked, and oversceduled but then trying to train you at the same time. Be prepared for calls an text messages at 9pm, 10pm at night
    You do not receive business cards until you sold at least 7500 worth of premium but your Manager want you to go door knocking WITHOUT a badge or business cards

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf the Regional & District Managers want to Monopolize your day and evenings during the training phase, then a salary needs to be given during the training phase whether it's 2, 4, 6 weeks while you are building your business.
    During the FAST start program District Managers need to be available and not in meetings and trainings

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
