Good start in the Voluntary Benefits Industry - Very hard work required

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

ProsOne week intense training in Chicago is very good. Field training and support is available after the initial class room style training. Small stipend for first 6 weeks and great new hire bonus schedule that's realistic to achieve. Some leads provided. Great incentive plans. Benefits offered after 6 months to a year depending on the specific benefit.

ConsNeed to be highly motivated with good work ethic! Cold calling is a must! The leads that are provided are often over worked and cherry picked prior to distribution. The potential income is largely exaggerated. Name recognition is not what it should be competitively. Most importantly, one is often very surprised by one's expected paycheck. 100% commission job that's not a true con unless you don't understand that. 6 weeks of a stipend isn't much for an inexperienced agent. Don't leave a steady secure paycheck for promises of grandeur!

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed more competitive products. Need better broker compensation to help establish relationships. Need to be honest and realistic with recruits. Quality over quantity should become a business practice.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
