I worked at First Investors Corporation full-time for more than a year

Pros

The training was amazing and provides you with everything from licensure, product knowledge, and sales training. There is a lot of support and great ideas that are passed around the company to help you build your business. Also compensation for mutual fund sales is the best in the business.

Cons

Too many meetings, full commission, no benefits, too many expectations from management to hit your goals. Certain managers may try to take advantage of you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop taking advantage of your reps. The young reps barely make enough money as it is.

    I worked at First Investors Corporation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Truly limitless income potential.
    Opportunity for success for the right person.

    Cons

    Conflict of interest between selling propietary funds and outside company funds with more options and sometimes better performance.
    Management totally pitches all the positive things that "could" happen by working for this company. These things are likely not to happen, at least within the first 3 years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Finish program design before implementation. The current training program is still being ironed out, while trying to squeeze new trainees through an ambiguous pipeline.
