    Pros

    Job security is not an issue
    Competitive salary
    Part time jobs offer flexible schedules for students or those with a second job

    Cons

    "Getting your foot in the door" is not necessarily going to give you the opportunity to advance
    Internal job postings are completely worthless
    Big company and easy to get lost in the crowd
    Tuition reimbursement program is poor

    Advice to Management

    Ask the people who actually do the job for feedback before you change something. Too often upper management throws a curve ball which makes the job more difficult and makes the issue more difficult for the customer.

    Pros

    Commissions are nice and there is not a monthly cap. Internet leads are also provided to help with your pool. If you work hard (well over 40 hours), there is a good chance of being promoted to the agent pool.

    Cons

    There are no benefits and though internet leads are better than no leads, they are basically cold calls. Even though you are making an honest attempt to save your prospective customers money, they rarely give you the chance and usually hang up before you get that far in your spill.

    Advice to Management

    If this specific role doesn't come with benefits, paid vacation days would be a bonus. Also more training is needed around how programs function and what products really are before goals become required.
