SelectQuote – Why Work For Us?


Over 30 years ago, SelectQuote pioneered a new way to buy Life Insurance. Today, we apply this proven method to encompass life, auto, home, and Medicare insurance products, and sell nationally from our offices in San Francisco, San Diego, Denver, Kansas City, Wilmington, NC and Jacksonville, FL. With an emphasis on each client’s individual needs, we provide unbiased price comparisons of the best rates from only highly-rated insurance companies. It’s simple. We shop, so our customers save.

Our workforce is the backbone of our organization. In this vast, ever-changing industry, we know that to better serve our clientele, it is imperative that we deliver a first-rate experience for our employees. To do this effectively, we concentrate our efforts on providing all of the tools necessary for our staff to thrive in our fast-paced, collaborative environment.

We offer paid training and ongoing support to foster professional growth and long-term success.

Our competitive compensation structure and incentive programs are designed to reward our employees for their hard work. We also have a very high standard for the top-rated, rock-solid insurance companies we partner with, and we lobby on behalf of our agents to keep pricing fair and competitive for our clients.

    I have been working at SelectQuote full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had been lied to by prospective employers so this was important.
    His response was that they were absolutely fair about what they expected and what they paid. I wanted an opportunity to work in a professional position. I wanted that opportunity to have or eventually have the option to work from home. I am money motivated, so is my company. I like working in a fast paced and changing environment with other professionals and experts. I liked the intense training and meeting the expectations that went with it. So far my experience at SelectQuote has been well above what I expected when I started.

    Cons

    They offer too much free food. I gained 15 lbs after I started. I know I don't HAVE to eat the delicious and caloric food but...
    Seriously, that's what I can come up with.

    Advice to Management

    I like the recent moves the company has been making to take care of us. Keep up the drive for us to make healthy choices in every aspect of our lives and encouraging us to act the part of good citizens and ambassadors. We look to you for leadership. Continue to be worthy of that role.
