I have been working at First Acceptance Corporation

Pros

admin support personnel do a good job getting your paycheck to you each and every pay period.
they provide a bathroom for breaks and allow you to breath air.

Cons

a hundred or more emails daily, that must be read because any one of them may have a new standard operating procedure thrust upon you with deadlines for new reports by end of day.
time wasting reports
want you to call customers 3x a day to get paid like it is a collections company, don't treat customers with respect.
must do guerrilla marketing (plaster parking lots with sticky flyers) 250 a week
can't have a stapler on your desk

Advice to ManagementAdvice

quit treating your best asset (agents that have good relationships with their customers) as if this is kindergarten and must be baby sat

    I worked at First Acceptance Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You are not always sitting at your desk, due to the ability to leave the office and market. You are your own manager with the help of a district manager when needed. You get to meet diverse people and handle diverse situations as well.

    Cons

    Marketing is okay, but being out off the office too much leaves less chances for the agent to meet and see who their new customers are and less chances of getting to talk to them and getting to know them. Some long-time customers may hardly see the agent in the office and think the agent is no longer employed there. Also, mostly all company organizations assign sales territories for each sales person that is out in the sales field; and Acceptance Insurance does not do this so agents end up competing with each other for sales referrals.

    I have been working at First Acceptance Corporation

    Pros

    The only pro I can think of was getting paid.

    Cons

    Working for FAC was the worst experience of my career. Upper management's treatment of its employees was demoralizing. Marketing strategies from the 80's, such as tear sheets, and placing fliers on car windshields, while selling an above average market price product, and still blaming the in-store employee for low sales, is not good business, but it is easier than trying to figure out what is really wrong and fixing it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management does not give any credence to any ideas they have not come up with themselves. No need for me to advise them from here.
