    Pros

    I applied with American Fidelity based on the suggestion of a friend. When interviewing I was impressed with how thorough they were to ensure they were making the correct hiring decisions. Once I received the offer and started with American Fidelity I was quickly impressed with the opportunities for financial growth and the amazing colleagues I had a chance to work with. The training was in-depth, they seemed not only concerned with my ability to present their products - more importantly to correctly take care of the customer and maintain their reputation in the educational community. While interviewing I was a little surprised by their bold financial claims - during that first year I recognized that they were not exaggerating. I had the ability to be as successful as I wanted to be based on my ability to take care of the customer. 2 years into employment with American Fidelity I chose a leadership path. With their amazing growth the opportunities to advance have been readily available. I cannot believe I was so lucky to have a friend share this opportunity with me. Feel very blessed to be a part of this organization.

    Cons

    The position requires overnight travel, they were very upfront about that requirement in the interview process. It is important that a person is prepared for that reality prior to starting.

    Pros

    In past careers, I loved the thrill and income potential of sales but hated the cold calling, unrealistic quotas, and the stinginess of management when it came to things I needed to sell. American Fidelity is literallly my dream career--salary, car, no cold-calling, made 100k my first full year and increased ever since. Anyone who likes educating the educators and who likes sales at all would be crazy not to beg for a position with American Fidelity!

    Cons

    Quite a bit of travel--especially the first year--but when you're making 100k+ it's easier to deal with!

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for being so generous with us! It makes us feel appreciated!

    Pros

    Wow. Salary, car and great benefits. If you like helping people, don't mind to travel and want to make a great living this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Pros

    Great company! 401k match, pension, health benefits with an HSA deposit! This company truly cares, and wants to be here for my family, now and in the future! I love that I get to work with school employees everyday, and talk about products I can be passionate about and know that our company stands behind everyone of their policies! The income that I've been able to provide my family while working at American Fidelity surpasses what I ever could have imagined! The opportunities are endless here!

    Cons

    Travel. Although I am putting htis down as a "con", this comes with any high income producing position that you find, and the company is very upfront about the expectations for it.

    Advice to Management

    Great job in making sure that our customers always come first, and just doing the right thing by people!

    Pros

    Unlimited potential, family oriented, company car and great benefits. The company is completely invested in me as an employee!

    Cons

    The only downside would be the amount of travel, but that was very clearly communicated to me early on, and the company covers all of my travel expenses.

    Advice to Management

    It's hard to imagine that things could get any better, but you continually amaze me. Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    American Fidelity has been wonderful to work for this past year. They truly keep all their promises that they made to me last year. Ohio has an amazing team of account managers that go out of their way to help you and they want you to be successful. They have 3 state managers and all 3 of them go out of their way to train and make me successful! Tons of growth opportunities, I am so happy I finally found a company I want to retire from!

    Cons

    Honestly, none right now. The first year has some travel but that was explained in interviews.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, what an amazing team you have here in Ohio!

    Pros

    Their benefits are excellent including a company car and all expenses. For a straight commission agent this place is heaven. No prospecting, great support from management and a long term employment relationship. One of very few companies still offering a pension plan. When you get older that is a very attractive benefit.

    Cons

    As with any company American Fideltiy has it's issues but all in all a solid company with a focus on the right things.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on the customer and selling.
