    I have been working at Answer Financial full-time (More than 3 years)


    One of the fastest growing companies in the online auto and home insurance policy sales industry. Owned by Allstate and closely affiliated with esurance, Answer Financial has been recognized as the 4th largest agency of its kind in the US. The training is extensive and prepares you adequately for the job of sales agent. Perfect position for the competitive, sales-minded individual who is willing to learn the system. With its rapid growth, opportunities for advancement to sales management are increasing for those so interested who demonstrate sales success.


    The sales call center environment is not for everyone. There are many metrics that make up your variable compensation (agent opportunities, conversion rate, cross-selling, etc.) which can see complicated and confusing. Overly analytical approach to coaching and mentoring agents. It's all about the numbers. Initially, you must be willing to work a 4-day, 10-hour shift to start that includes at least one weekend day.

    Advice to Management

    Be more creative in engaging employees and implementing more incentive and recognition programs beyond buying lunch.
