    Former Employee - Recruiting Specialist  in  Johnston, IA
    Former Employee - Recruiting Specialist in Johnston, IA

    Pros

    - Working in recruiting we were allowed a lot of latitude planning our appointments and days.
    - Worked with a lot of truly good people.
    - Faith based, and that does come through with culture.
    - Mileage paid
    - Good interaction with other state offices (recruiters)
    - Pleasant Regional Field Office Managing Partner. Buffered a lot of the stress

    Cons

    Long evenings. Overnight stays several (3-5) per month.
    There is a lot of pressure from the corporate office to contract new representatives. Weekly accountability and pressure meetings.
    Suit and tie every day.
    Driving your own vehicle
    Key activity is meeting with people to get referrals. Many of the areas have been covered many times before, so getting tougher to solicit and receive meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The mission was clear and very worthy. When I was there it seemed like some of the recruiting goals were almost unrealistic, based on shear needs of the organizatio- High turnover. I believe since then there has been strides in the "launch" process, helping to make new reps more successful and to be retained. If so, that would likely provide greater balance in the recruiting and licensing process.
