I worked at Modern Woodmen full-time

Pros

Great pay and training! Managing Partners are terrific at what they do, and are always willing to help. It feels like a mom and pop shop.

Cons

All commission from the beginning. Maybe have a base plus commission for the first year. If you don't have a market, you won't succeed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep on doing what you are doing.

    I worked at Modern Woodmen full-time (more than an 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 an 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.
