    I have been working at DealerPolicy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love working with young folks - their energy keeps me motivated every day! Most of our leadership is also young, and their vision includes searching out Vermonters (and others, as we grow nationally) who are looking to move to an organization that offers training and almost unlimited earning capacity in fairly technical jobs, and if you live around here, you understand how big and important of a vision that is. This is a company that I feel good about getting behind.

    As you'll see from previous reviews, we are growing FAST. That means that we continue to see more and more job openings, more diversity in jobs available, and my guess (and hope) is higher and higher wages as we mature.

    Teamwork on the sales floor is remarkable. It seems as though there's always more work than time to do it, but teammates are willing to pitch in and help when they can. It's definitely a call center, but with personality, and extra training is available if you need it. DealerPolicy has done an amazing job at hiring...everyone seems to get along with everyone! They're actively looking for smart, sharp, hard-working, eager learners who are accepting of others' differences, and they are succeeding. If you can get in here, you'll be surprised by how many people you get along with.

    The building and location are AMAZING. Everything is within walking distance! Four-day-work-week shifts are available, and the benefits are reasonable – health, dental, vision, 401K, etc. We have some of the best coffee - free - available all day long. We've got an in-house gym and free, healthy snacks (I'm munching on macadamia nuts as I type this...for real).

    Leadership will always, always make themselves available if someone needs to talk something out or has an idea they'd like to share. There is almost limitless opportunity for advancement with this company, especially with the licensing program and continuing training and education. If you're looking to work hard and show up every day as the best version of yourself you can bring to the table, you will GO places on this rocket ship.

    Cons

    There is a LOT of change! Sometimes it’s big, sometimes it’s small change, but the one thing you can be sure of is that it will happen very, very often. If you’re not the kind of person who can roll with the punches and make change work for you in your life, this is probably not the right place for you. If you’re comfortable being in flux, have a vision for how things could work better, if you can incorporate new ways of doing the same old things, and you’re cool with innovation and technology, this would be a perfect place for you!

    There are many roles at DealerPolicy, but the one position we have the most people in is the Digital Client Advisor job. There is truthfully a lot of pressure in this job – you will have significant deadlines and quotas to meet and supervisors will be 100% sure that you’re aware of what is expected of you. There is extra training and quite literally EVERYONE here will work hard with you to make sure your training is there, your sales skills are on point, and your insurance knowledge is top-notch. You are also fed warm leads ALL DAY LONG – selling is easier here than anywhere I’ve ever worked. Folks MUST have insurance and if we can get a better policy for them at a better rate…? You can be SUPER successful here, but definitely be prepared to work hard and expect to handle some pressure for it.

    Communication doesn’t flow as easily as I’m accustomed to. Because we’re an insurtech startup, we work with proprietary, privately-owned and copyrighted technology, and leadership is understandably protective of it. My own personal style is full-on, open communication and that’s not how this business model works. I find it a bit uncomfortable sometimes, but I’m willing to live with it because I trust leadership; I believe they have my best interest at heart and that goes a long way with me.

    We are growing so fast that it can be challenging to even know your co-workers – there are new folks starting every day, it seems. This is not a con for me; I am very much a “people person” and love the fact that we have new employees all the time, but I know this can be difficult for some of my coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    Competition here is STRONG, sometimes too strong for me. They’ve just hired more folks to work on the culture here – they’re REALLY investing in this company for the long term and that is starting to show. Luckily, leadership is aware that employees have been somewhat stressed out and they’re actively working on making some rapid, concrete changes to help folks feel more comfortable, more relaxed and able to process the changes in process and quotas that we manage on a daily basis. I’d love it if we focused on competing more with other agencies (only the really big ones, of course!) and spent a bit less time on competing with each other – more collaboration and positive communication would feel better for me and I know that’s true for others around me as well. Specific, positive feedback on a more regular basis would also be VERY welcome! I know they’re working on a re-structuring some systems so agents can get qualified help more rapidly – this is great, and I am confident that we’ll see more changes like this in the future.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at DealerPolicy (New York, NY).

    Interview

    One phone call, one team interview. Use bait and switch methods ruthlessly to give an impression of being easygoing, when they are anything but.

    Interview process doesn't assess your actual skills at all (maybe general knowledge), so be prepared to be let go if you end not meeting their demands. Multiple people have gone this way in the past year, which is a lot for a company this size.
