I worked at Modern Woodmen full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Lots of independence and ability to set your own hours. Hardwork pays off sometimes but not always. You must be willing to harass a lot of people before you get a small sale.

Cons

Lack of quality training, must learn on the job. To be successful you must work long hours everyday and invest a lot of your own money into gas, client lunches, and advertising.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest more time with your field representatives than simple class room lecture and a couple of sales calls.

    I worked at Modern Woodmen full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Quality values, they want you to succeed, and their fraternal benefits are a great selling point.

    Cons

    Their name recognition is substantially less than Edward Jones or any of the other big guys. There was very little training in the first three months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a training program within a month of hiring a new Financial Representative.
