    Pros

    Easy-going environment, and friendly colleagues make the company like a big family, not a company. There are tons of opportunities to move up. The salary, over all, is not bad.

    Cons

    Not willing to invest more staff in IT to fix years old problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the IT problems.

    Pros

    No pros I can think of, this company should be a great place but not with bad people in upper management

    Cons

    Crooked management, negative sales tactics, threatening management styles, unsophisticated technology Managers in my job interviews were abrasive,rude,nasty,unorganized call me a demeaning person. But couldn't explain what the word meaning to me and how it applied.Run from this company its joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that if employees feel appreciated they will work harder for you.
    Have motivational or sales speakers come in to keep the employees excited and eye on the prize. GIve more praise and better contests. Invest in your employees more then just the initial training. You will benefit financially by doing so.

    FInd another way to make things happen sans constant rules, then rule changes and getting on your employees everyday for what they did wrong instead of what they did right.

    Pros

    Interview process was quick. Hired after 1 interview. They need to get people in the door quickly but you'll be out the door just as quickly -- you are subject to being fired every day.

    Cons

    There are two modes of operation here: 1) They tell people one glorious story then never follow through on compensation, benefits, work environment, promises; and 2) SQS keeps moving and firing people as a way to unsettle and obfuscate what the real plans are... it's a numbers game that requires butts in seats and people taking calls for nine weeks. Once the deadline occurs, all heads will roll. If this is how the grants ran bma and labone, they should be ashamed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are making a killing on the backs of your employees. Is it worth it to have such a negative reputation? The business must have a short lifecycle because your past employees say awful things about SeleectQuote at job fairs and to competitors. Not sustainable.

    Pros

    I learned a lot about Medicare. Enjoyed tremendously talking to the Seniors and helping them. The business concept is wonderful. Met many smart and fantastic people.

    Cons

    If you have children, a life, or morals you will NOT last after AEP even though you work 60-70 hours/WEEK! Management is extremely greedy and the bottom line is all that matters even though they will tell you different. The income potential is a flat lie. Billed as a mid-level perm position they hired approx. 200 people and kept 20 after AEP and they do similarly every year. RUN!! This is an entry level, temp position that is not worth your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great business concept. You are in over your head and too greedy to even know when you have amazing and skilled people working for you. What a shame for all the great people who wanted to help others.

    Pros

    The leads are given to you and you don't have to take the work home with you when you leave. Overall a good company to work for.

    Cons

    They change the comp plan every quarter and there is an income cap and they do everything possible to keep you from making too much money.

    Pros

    Co-workers are great. Nice break room.

    Cons

    Long hours, "leads" are provided to favorite agents, every quarter the accountants come up with ridiculous metrics to take away the small commissions the agents make. Before this, things were great. Now, they have 10 different ways to reduce your pay each month. Turnover rate is insane. Management does not care because they hire in a new group of 200 agents every busy season. They fire most of them. Keep a few of the good ones to replace the old good reps. Boiler room mentality - nothing more. Awful benefits. $500 match for 401k per year. Burn and churn. Burn and Churn. There is no plan to keep employees for more than a season, or maybe two at best anymore. I thought I would retire here. Not any longer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be good to your employees and try to keep them. Stop nit-picking the commission checks. Be honest when hiring people for AEP and let them know it is a temporary job.

    Pros

    Flexible with schedule. You can make money if you can handle the micro management.

    Cons

    They lied and said the position was base + salary. Well, it is straight commission. You have a training salary that you can stay on for 6 months. They also didn't mention that you are required to work every Saturday(full shift) for 6 months. The management style is that of the movie "Boiler Room". Intimidation and humiliation.
