    Pros

    Temporary License - I didn't have to pay for a school. I didn't even know that existed! During the shadowing I was compensated while learning. Classroom training is okay. Control your own destiny - hired on the management fast track and was promoted in 3 months. Make your own decisions.

    Cons

    Was difficult to balance my schooling with it, but I did sign up for full time. Difficult interviews. Can be high stress if you aren't used to face paced environment.

    Advice to Management

    Its good to focus on new hires and all, but don't forget about the folks who have been around.

    I worked at Liberty National Life full-time

    Pros

    I had a very Flexible schedule and the job had a big pay out potential if you are willing to put in the work

    Cons

    The initial interview was easy but the amount of effort/money in order to get a sale was very unrewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more structured plan for new hires and much more field experience before being sent out on your own

    Pros

    The bonus program really gives you the potential to make six digit income

    Cons

    If you give them 100% they still expect 500%

    Advice to Management

    Observing in the field is better than 40 hrs in the office roll playing without pay


  6. Great agency to work for

    I worked at Liberty National Life full-time

    Pros

    Decent money, good company name.

    Cons

    Too much commuting, really not for any looking for solid steady work. Also a lot of coldcalling, they will say its different, but its not, its coldcalling.

    Advice to Management

    Stop selling the job, just tell the full truth before and you would keep more employees.

    Pros

    There are none. The company sell a predatory insurance product that really doesn't have any real coverages. They treat their employees terrible.

    Cons

    I was told that employment would begin upon passing of my producer licensing. Once employed I was told that there would be a great training program with much support from management. I passed the licensing exam and was given training by another sales person. Many requests were made to the manager for training which fell upon deaf ears. In addition, I was severely injured while making a cold call for the company. This resulted in a long term disability which the company gave no support. In addition, I was taken to a local emergency by the co worker that I was working with. Once I arrived there, the manager advised my co worker that she was wasting time at the hospital and needed to get back out into the field and sell something. In addition to showing some compassion during a time of great pain and stress, the company sent me a "you are fired" letter within 5 days of the accident.

    Advice to Management

    Better training and people skills. The managers sell something that they have no intention of fulfilling once you are hired. There is no job security.

    I have been working at Liberty National Life full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ever since I interviewed with this company, I was told this is an opportunity of a lifetime. It's true. I worked in corporate America for 30+ years, and was laid off 4 times in 12 years. I was looking for an opportunity to grow, and with Liberty National made it to Agency Director in just over a year. I could not possibly think of working anywhere else. When I started, I was told I could work for 10 years and retire. That is a real possibility, but not sure if I would want to give up this positive family-like workplace. I love it here.

    Cons

    Having never been given an opportunity like this earlier in my life. If I had started earlier in life, I would be SO much more financially secure today than I am after working in corporate America for so many years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on taking care of your employees the way you are.

    Pros

    Work at your own pace. Not stuck in an office. Decent money if you sale

    Cons

    It is paced strictly off commission. Don't pay you for your 1st week training.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for training!! If I'm expected to sit in your office 5 days I should be paid
