I worked at First Investors Corporation full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Ability to set your schedule. It was easy to get the job. They help you get licensed to sell mutual funds and life insurance.

Cons

Very little room for growth, just sell more. Basically you are self employed, no benefits, no healthcare etc. The training wasn't very good either. Older reps get your clients when you leave so they are not really motivated to help you.

Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Help you get licensed in series 6,63 and life insurance

    Cons

    It is pure commission. Not that many people last, they continually get new reps out of college, get as much business from immediate family and move on to new reps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Devote more time to staff and don't overpromise

    I have been working at First Investors Corporation part-time

    Pros

    Everything in the title. Our manager is incredible. He's won several awards. He's always willing to help,he's very encouraging, and he is understanding of what is happening in your life. He was very supportive when I had to take some time off to help take care of a family member.

    The schedule is my own, so I have tremendous flexibility, which is really important for me.

    There are TONS of training videos and lots of sites on financial planning to read. Also weekly training meetings.

    Foresters has benefits that brother life insurance company offers. They provide complimentary monthly benefits and scholarships to the children of their members who pass away. They really care about helping families and communities. They also have competitive scholarships and a host of other member benefits.

    Cons

    Starting out was difficult because there was not a base salary. The company has just changed this and starting in January there will be a salary for new reps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm really happy with management.
