I worked at Bankers Life

Pros

Flexible work schedule. Friendly work environment. Management communicates thoroughly. Go over changes everyday over new or old material. Can be promoted to management if your good at it.

Cons

A lot of product material to go over. If you never worked on commission before its a an eye opener because you can go broke quick. Once you quit, friends you thought you had, stop communicating with you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Good at communicating with employees but its very difficult trying to get a hold of them outside of the office.

    Be prepared to call 2,000 people a week and maybe get no money out of it.

    I have been working at Bankers Life

    Pros

    1. If you are established and been there for a while you have the possibility to make good money.
    2. They have wonderful products that really help people.

    Cons

    1. You need to have at least 3 or 4 months worth of money to live off of while you are getting started.
    2. Be prepared to work 70 hours a week for your first month and not make a dime.
    3. They take the first $100 and office fees from your first commission payment if you are lucky to get one.
    4. Most of the employees are cut throat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most agents aren't trying to get rich. They just want to make a living. Had I at least gained $250 a week, that would have been enough to carry me over the hump until I actually started making money from commissions. It is really hard to phone power and make good appointments when you really don't care because you are so worried about your bills and how they will get paid.

    I worked at Bankers Life

    Pros

    Great training. Work hard and you will get promoted but you have to buy in to their philosophy once you are.

    Cons

    Recruiters tell you everything but the truth during the recruitment process. Be willing and able to support yourself for at least 3 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest to recruits and make sure you hire reps that know what they are getting in to. Do not promote producers so quickly
