Large, poorly run company, decent pay.

Customer Sales Associate (Former Employee) North Las Vegas, NV

ProsThe pay is decent, far above minimum wage. You have the opportunity to make bonus each month based on the amount of coverage you sell.

ConsYou have the opportunity to make commission based on the amount of coverage you sell each month, however, their system is corrupt. You may not sell coverage to each customer, therefore the amount of customers you help in one day effects your "yield" or your opportunity to make bonus. Because the other employees have figured out how to manipulate this system they speak slowly and essentially draw out the customer's experience to a ridiculous point so they are helping as little as 8-10 customers a day. The management and "higher ups" see nothing wrong with this behavior as it is helping their statistics. Employees also use scare tactics to ensure customers purchase additional coverage i.e. "if the vehicle is damaged in any way you are 100% financially responsible and your insurance probably does not cover rental vehicles." It may not be this way everywhere. I had the opportunity to work in multiple locations and I found the same behavior in each separate location. Management does not care about the well-being of employees, just the statistics and the sales.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
