Former Employee - Insurance Agent in Fort Lauderdale, FL

I worked at AGLA full-time for more than a year

Pros

Seems like you are getting lots of training, at least they spend a lot of time telling you they are training you. Actually they just do a lot of Rah Rah sessions where they make a big deal of all the current weekly sales, but not the acutal written cases and definately not the large number of rejected cases or take backs.

Cons

Every year they have a big push to hire new sales agents, they then race them threw a training, and push them into the field. 90% fail and eventually leave or are terminated. Any sales they made are left behind for the company to benefit from,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop funnelling large numbers of employees threw the system and concentrait on developing long term employees. This will reduce the companies bump up each year for the new hires that make sales and then move on, but the retention rate will go up insuring both the company and agents of a long term income
