Mission: Modern Woodmen exists to improve quality of life for our members and the communities where they live, work and play. We do this through financial guidance and social, educational and volunteer activities.
I have been working at Modern Woodmen full-time (More than 5 years)
There is great leadership in the company, but specifically at the Indiana Firm. Training of new advisors is very much 1 on 1. They only hire a select few financial advisors each year, this allows them to commit the necessary resources to ensure that each new hire is successful.
Compensation is healthy. You truly in charge of your own business and given plenty of flexibility. Many of the best products in the industry.
If you do not have an entrepreneurial and philanthropic heart, Modern Woodmen is not for you. If you don't want to be in control of your income and independence, Modern Woodmen is not right for you.
Advice to Management
Continue to only hire a few people each year. Continue the high level of support that you provide.
I applied in-person. I interviewed at Modern Woodmen (Atlanta, GA).
I have noticed a few people mention coming up with 140 of your own clients. That is actually not the case. It is to show the support you have and the comfort you have in asking for referrals. This is a commission based career. I am speaking from experience when I say I WILL NEVER go back to salary again after working for this company. They are supportive. They offer an amazing medical/dental benefit package, 401k & even still have a pension plan. This is not a junk company by any means. Some things, like getting your state license, you will pay for. However, it is your license, not theirs. After being with this company for about 8 mon, I hope I am able to stay with them until I retire.
