What is working from home like at Family First Life?

Pros

Work your own schedule, work from home.

Cons

You have to buy your own leads. A cheap week of leads or starting is about $800, afterwards it’s about $2,000 to $2,500. They don’t tell you that 2 days a week you need to call min 450 times to get appointments and that does not guarantee you will get appointments. Most are no shows and when you do make a sale commissions are good but guess what, people who purchase final Expense Insurance usually are low income, they miss payments. Chargebacks are always happening. You can work your butt off just to break even. This company is oversold when it comes to income. They hire 1,000 of reps every year hoping something sticks at your expense. Remember it cost you big time just to work leads.

Advice to Management

Quit overselling employment opportunities and train reps better so you don’t have such a massive turnover rate. This is why you see most employees here in their 20s. Support your agents, do better training and quit hiring too many agents which screws up quality of leads, cost of call transfers, quality of call transfers etc.

Work your own schedule, work from home.

How is the work/life balance at Family First Life?

Pros

I was out of work and was struggling to find a new job. I did my research and decided to become an independent insurance agent. I attended all of the calls and trainings I could. Slowly but surely I started making a living! Within a year I was making more than I did in my last career! I had to work really hard, and I had to work seven days a week at first, but I did it.

Cons

The work life balance is hard since the weekends are when you can make the most money.
