    Pros

    Decent insurance plan for families

    Cons

    Very low pay, Bad management who are not connected with employees and give orders that are not practical to workers, high turnover due to supervisors and manager mistreatment, poor morale due to a lack of financial incentives, employees are micromanaged, 99% of managers and supervisors are unqualified . IT dept employees treated the worst. No pay raises in the last 5 years even though the company belongs to Kemper corporation and has consistently posted profits for the same 5 year period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within, pay decent wages that keep people onboard, treat people valuably, do not micromanage or talk behind employees backs, we find out anyway. Train managers in how to handle and treat employees, people skills and leverage talent and do not give them a promotion just because they have been there 500 years or show lots of skin.

    Pros

    There are none. They will promise you the world and in the end, you will have less than

    Cons

    You know those get rich quick schemes that come on TV late at night. The ones that "guarantee" you will be able to go from rich to poor in 3 weeks. That's pretty much how I would describe the lies told by Reserve National, during the hiring process. They manipulate agents into believing they can make more money than they know what to do with: retire early and buy a private island. Do NOT be deceived by the manipulative tactics of the hiring team. Unfortunately, Reserve National's compensation statistics are only for the top 1%. There is ZERO base pay. Pay is solely commission based. As an agent, you will be responsible for ALL fuel spent driving hours a day to meet potential clients. You will only receive a check from Reserve IF you happen to actually sell a policy. A very difficult task do to underwriting policies and costs. Say you visit 12 people in a week and only 1 purchases a policy. You will only be compensated for that 1 client. The other client consultations were a waste of your gas money... and time. Please, have more self respect and do not work for Reserve National. It was an unnecessary learning experience for myself. Oh, and they do not offer any benefits. Not even health insurance for their own employees. #SCAM

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer a base salary and benefits to employees. They may actually stick around if you did.

    Pros

    Great Commissions.
    Leads are free.
    Freedom to work your own hours.
    Flexibility

    Cons

    Training is not very good at all.
    A lot of driving and traveling.
    Lack of support of regional and district managers to help you get started.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to recruit only people who have the work ethic and backgound to succeed in the insurance business. Provide more in depth training on products and how to sell them.
