    I worked at The Jennings Agency full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I can truly say that the Jennings Agency is a great place to work and start a career. I am a mother of three and was working for the agency a while back I was not intending to leave but personal family matters came about and I could not stay employed. I explained it to my supervisor and he understood. They never left my side. My daughter has Down Syndrome and every time there is an event for the DS society here they have always supported and became a sponsor of some sort. They have always stood by my side through thick and thin and have given back to the community as much as possible

    Their leadership understands when a employee needs to take a breather and tries their best to help out. They bring in world class motivational speakers and try to ale each and every one of their employees goals a success.

    Benefits Enrollment Specialist Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Jennings Agency.

    Interview

    One thing to keep in mind is that this is a three-stage process for most prospects. I applied for the Benefits Enrollment Specialist. The first involves phone contact, and then face to face at their location. The face to face interview was rather very simple and you simply explain how you understand what makes communication work and how your experiences contribute. Afterwards, you are asked to stay for around an hour presentation by the head of the agency, he provides you a presentation regarding the success and potential of each prospect. I was selected for the third interview stage and I was ecstatic.

    The third process was just mindboggling. I applied for this position because the job description page described it as administrative, which is exactly what I was looking for to plant my feet on the ground. None of the descriptions featured anything about sales but that's exactly what they tell you it is when you get there. From then on, I learned that this was a sales role, commission only, salary isn't guaranteed. As a matter of fact, I was given a brochure regarding career paths and they stated that I would start as a General Agent, none of that rhymes with Specialist or Benefits Enrollment.
    They seem like good people and they were willing to accept me. But this was a bait and switch. Come if you're interested in sales. If not, Do Not be fooled by the specialist job description. Either describe the position in depth or keep it and continue to waste people's time.
