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

    Having a wide array of products to offer from a company that is very reputable and has been around forever. Not a person in th world can tell you they have not heard from State Farm.

    Cons

    Employees of agents are just that, staff of that agent. They make it very clear that you are not employed by State Farm. Corporate loves to cancel people, raise rates, and take away discounts (homeowners) with no explanations because they know they don't have to hear the wrath of the client. It really depends on who you work for but my employer offers no benefits whatsoever and makes it seem like approving a vacation day is actually a favor, sort of like "I'm going to give you this day off but when you come back im going to need this". After a certain time you will not be able to take this job anymore, it is just not rewarding. Unless you want to sell life, health, and banking products, this is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Agent staff are really the ones in the trenches day in and day out and the real faces of State Farm. Get a little more involved with he real people making you the money and not only bringing in the clients but keeping them on the books when things get sour.
