    Pros

    Make a ton of money, best work/life balance ever. Work when you want.

    Cons

    No payment for driving or wear on car. Very bad training. No real office place just a huge room with huge tables. Management needs to be replaced

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who speak English. Pay supervisors what it owed n not treat them like second class agent.

    Cons

    Steading motivated to do the complete job to earn an excellant salary.

    Advice to Management

    Continuing to reach corporate objective as a Insurance Sale Representative will lead you into Management very quickly.

    Pros

    can practically make your own hours. off Saturday and Sunday

    Cons

    A lot of driving that the company doesn't pay for, which I think they should because depending where your debit is located its a big gas burner.

    Advice to Management

    being able to spend more time with new agents. sometimes the managers have a lot on their plate, so they should have a training manager or a trainer that helps out new agents especially when just getting into the insurance business and trying to pass your license test

    Pros

    Don't clock in paid base right away while training and will help you gain your license for insurance will do well if you have good people experience

    Cons

    will be driving a lot use a crappy car it is still a debit so you will be going to mostly poor neighborhood can lose or get knocked below the base pay if you get a lot of lapse and no sale

    Advice to Management

    make it more organized in getting the insurance agent set up, instead of piling on work loads in the start.

    Pros

    Other than benefits, I can't think of any Pros about the insurance agent position at United Insurance Company of America.

    Cons

    Cons, Management will fool you with kindness and positive comments, but they are only loyal to themselves and will throw you in front of the train. Management will tell you that a six figure income is attainable at United Insurance Company but this is a lie. This office has major personnel issues and until this year only hired people from india or Fiji islands. Previous District Manager was demoted to a manager and won't give you proper training. Previous D.M. and new D.M. are at odds with each other, and each wants the other to fail. This is a very negative environment where management will make negative comments to you if you are not of his culture. Very poor base salary with commissions only kicking in after 3rd+ month. Low pay and no car allowance or mileage, you will put huge miles on your personal vehicle. Spend all your time collecting insured premiums with little time to prospect for new business. If you are a professional agent avoid United Insurance Company they don't value licensed professional agents.

    Advice to Management

    They should fire everyone in management from the D.M. down and start over. Also, Corporate should change compensation to a livable amount and provide company cars, or car allowance of $700 per month for gas, maintenance, and wear and tear.

    Pros

    You are not on a time schedule, so it is a very flexible company to work for. Also, the clients you service are wonderful people to form positive relationships with.

    Cons

    You put a lot of miles and stress on your vehicle, there are too many variables involved with making money from the contract you sign, and many agents feel compelled to use unethical tactics to make an average salary.

    Advice to Management

    Management should train agents better before releasing them in the field alone, and teach them ethical practices by leading by example when securing new business.

    Pros

    Existing clients that are older and knowledgeable of there benefits and have advise for you also.

    Cons

    Clients that are older and younger that could care less about their benefits. Management is ok.

    Advice to Management

    Have an introduction class for new agents before they are placed on a debit. It should include the products offered, the claims process for the company, different forms that have to be completed by the agent/client, and the agent's responsibilities within the company.
