    Great training, old school sales tactics, long hours, lower pay. Good start-up place for newbies or direct sales agents.

    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent sales training, positive company atmosphere, 13 week start pay, employee benefits, W2 tax advantages, good bonus structure, trip incentives, easy to advance. Excellent limited product line at low prices. This is a good position for "new" to insurance or Direct Sales agents.

    Cons

    Very low commission, high turn-over, over worked leads, very time consuming to make a good paycheck. Health benefits at 6 months, Dental in 1 year. Replacement is NOT allowed in ANY circumstance. You WILL get fired for it. Limited product lines, Book of Business belongs to them, not you. You leave Combined the same way you came in, with nothing. Old school mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the correct people, offer a salary + commission in order to keep your agents, require more "insurance" experience for managers, incorporate easier ways to get "New" fresh leads. Allow replacement in order to do what's right for the consumer! Stop over selling to consumers products they don't need! You WILL be door knocking.
