    Pros

    Unlimited earning potential, FULL support from management/leadership team, constant training and betterment, continual partnership for success(this is huge!!), wealth building, greatest work environment ever, constant growth & team building, flexible schedule.
    I'm absolutely a BETTER person today than I was when I walked in for my interview thanks to the things I've learned at Team Sellors Agency.

    Cons

    Have to put the work in, in the beginning don't think it will come instant... but honestly I have NEVER been in a work environment that is so SINCERELY supportive, motivating, helpful, and positive in my life. It doesn't feel like work! Best decision I have ever made!!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Coming from having a lot of success in Retail Management, I thought I knew everything on being an effective leader but the management at Team Sellors Agency of Liberty National has taught me so much on how to be the true leader I didn't even think was possible. I'm forever grateful!!!

    Pros

    Training was great. Spent two weeks in the office with the laptop trainer learning about products and services. Then one of the Regional Directors went in the field with me and taught me how to do this. My first paycheck was about $1800. The exciting thing for me is that was only about 6 months ago and I've already stepped into the first level of management and have really been able to control my own destiny.

    Cons

    There's no real downside if you're willing to work really hard. The only downside, if any, is that you really control your own destiny, you write your own paycheck. For me, and a lot of people in our agency, that's a pro, but if you're not willing to work I can see how that would be a con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing because it's changed my life.

  6. Great training and supportive environment. Long-term growth and promotion possibilities.

    Pros

    Rapid advancement, good bonus structure.

    Cons

    No CRM, terrible technological support (no app for agents, no paid leads)

    Advice to Management

    You only make money when agents make money....provide leads and good technology to convert on those leads.

    Pros

    The products you are selling are actually pretty good. If you have the extra coin you can shell out then you can eventually make good money if you can become a Agency Director or Owner, but you will have to pay for it.

    Cons

    The company doesn't care about sales. They want you to recruit. Turnover is so high that they constantly have everyone trying to call people to come in for an interview. Most new agents only last long enough to make a sale or two and then leave and that is how the company makes money. Hire someone, they make a sale or two and then wash out, and then they hire a new person.

    Advice to Management

    All of the responsibilities put on lower management while Agency Owners and Directors just sit back and reap the benefit of destroying their agent's financial status. I guess that is the norm in the insurance industry though.

    Pros

    My income is higher that what I previously earned.
    The flexibility I have is also better.

    Cons

    I wish I had more time to devote to work and had found this career much earlier in life. I settled for a job where I was assigned a value and worked that job for years!!

    Pros

    -The service product was/is wonderful. The clients that take advantage of the service will benefit greatly in having them in place for their families.
    -Awesome career opportunity for someone who wants to eat, breath and sleep Liberty National all the rest of their life.

    Cons

    The marketing strategy placed upon the agents to follow is overly demanding. It does not allow the agent the opportunity to balance home life and career. I understand the concept that is given during training but it is not realistic.

    Advice to Management

    Consider broaden the scope of appointment time for agents so a balance between home life and career can be effectively achieved.

    Pros

    With Solid effort made good money.
    Managers cared about the agents
    Perks like trips and recognition is magazine was cool

    Cons

    Not being truly able to control your cancelations

    Advice to Management

    Management of the offices seems good, every at Liberty "101" school people liked their managers. But Home office seems slow to understand field issues.

  11. Very tough field, but worth the hard work if you're planning for long term

    Pros

    It's a great place to work if you are driven. You get paid what you are worth and for what you bring to the table. No one decides how much you will make or how much you will grow other than you. They do not move you up based on seniority but based on performance and ability. Still a relatively small branch, so it's tight knit and family like. Run by 80% ladies, and all the directors are female, which is rare in this field.

    Cons

    It's still in sales, so there are ups and downs. No base pay, so I can see why that could be considered a con. Not for the weak minded or timid people. You will face a lot of rejection in sales. Make a lot of money but no time to spend it.

    Advice to Management

    Casual days are great! Wish we had more!!!
