Pros

Good office atmosphere. District sales associates willing to mentor aspiring agents. My mentor's administrator was extremely helpful in sales training and studying for the Virginia State Health Insurance Exam. Learned effective sales techniques.

Cons

Not much personal interaction with associates. Sales training meetings are boring and ineffective. Almost everything must be done yourself. Far too much cold calling to start out. Fast-Start seminar in Maryland is motivating, though networking is tough if you don't have immediate or second degree connections to business owners or HR representatives. You are your own business- there is no salary, only commission. If you have any past criminal history, consider yourself unqualified.

Advice to Management

Training should be shadow training. Aspiring agent should be able to shadow a district sales associate for a period of two weeks to see how the best producers organize themselves, cold call, and network with potential clients.

    Pros

    Could come and go as pleased. No real accountability.

    Cons

    Made $9k first year, and was an award winner for consistent production...you do the math. They charge reps for the ducks, btw.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire kids out of college, it's just not a place for young folk to cut their teeth.
