Low pay high pressure. Poorly managed place all around.

Pros

mon-fri but that will change anytime the agent thinks it is needed.

Cons

Agent is never there and expects you to grow his agency as he wants but never is there to tell you how that is. Unrealistic goals set for ALL employees. Office manager is very nice but only wants to do service work and be left alone. Agent can barely write an auto policy and often tells customers what ever he thinks is best even if it is untrue. You are promised 40k a year pay because of commission but DO NOT expect any more than 30K not matter what and that is being very optimistic. You be told do to whatever it takes to set appointments for the agent to meet with current customers. Good luck because if the agent has something fun to do that day or week he will ask you to reschedule it. Only take this job if you are very very very desperate!

    Pros

    Friendly supportive staff. Cordial work environment. Upper management followed company rules so if you read the rules you knew what was expected of you.

    Cons

    We had to pay for the coffee in the break room, and the policy for sick days was very, very strict. If you missed one day without a doctors note, you were docked the days salary. Seriously, who goes to the doctor for a cold or other minor illness. The result of this policy was that people came to work sick. Which got everyone else sick. Very unproductive policy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A free cup of coffee goes a long way my friend when it comes to goodwill with your employees.
