    Good opportunity to work from home

    Current Employee - Remote Sales Agent  in  Akron, OH
    Current Employee - Remote Sales Agent in Akron, OH

    I have been working at Homesite Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Solid company to work for and good pay, benefits, and vacation time. Great place to be if you like to work from home and don't mind working some overtime.

    Cons

    Work can get monotonous at times. Not the place to be if you like being around co-workers. Pretty tough to advance in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer better training to your agents that are newer to the industry.

    I have been working at Homesite Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work from home. Health Benefits (just to lure you in)

    Cons

    Horrible business model. Insurance company trying to be an insurance agency. Cannot do both. Technology is outdated and on the low end compared to competitors. Unfortunately, the customers calling in are on the losing end of this one. Incoming call distribution is rigged and manipulated to give favorite sales agents the good calls. DOI complaints are very common, and privacy breach issues are on the rise to due the company hiring people with no insurance experience. I do not see this company being around the long run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company and move on. You'll be shut down eventually.

    I have been working at Homesite Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There is good cooperation between departments that I haven't really seen at many of the previous places I have worked. Human Resources is also very responsive. Ample PTO time and salary is decent for those just starting out in their careers. They also offer to pay 80% of tuition for those attending school or training to enhance their careers.

    Cons

    There is very little upward movement within the company. Most job changes are considered "lateral moves" and not promotions, and often include being told that you are now absorbing other duties in addition to your own. Also, communication from management is almost non existing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up and let people know what is going on. Start promoting from within.

    great staff to work with, Lower management tries to be helpful. they bring in pizza every Friday. no micro managing.

    Cons

    They provide little or no training, they set unrealistic goals such as closure rates however they high volume of claims makes that near impossible.

    I have been working at Homesite Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I am a work at home insurance sales rep, and the flexibility of working from the comfort of my home is like no other. They money I am saving on gas, dry cleaning, food, and drive time is just a small portion of why I love working here. The management really values and listens to their employees. Concerns are immediately addressed, and the pay is one of the best commission packages in the industry. The service side is based in the home office, but they are a casual dress environment. they get pizza every Friday, and get paid bonuses as well.

    Cons

    Working from home, there are times you are held hostage by your internet provider. Since the company is growing at a fast pace there are occasions computer glitches occur. they are quick to fix, and at times the fault of the internet provider.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep valuing your employees, and keep the commission structure as is. It makes for a great incentive, and fun place to work.

    Pros

    Co-workers, free pizza Friday.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, Unrealistic expectations that I can guarantee upper management could not meet if put to the test. Long hours and hard work with no appreciation. Sweat shop comes to mind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Out with the old and in with the new.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, excellent training staff, management that listens to and cares about their employees, good HR department, good benefits, great IT department, opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Being tied down to a desk and phone, tough hours when working 2nd shift, heavy work-flow when a weather event hits anywhere in the United States, handling stressed-out customers who just suffered a loss to their home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue what you're doing - a call center isn't the easiest thing to run, but you're doing it very well.
