I have been working at Velapoint (More than 3 years)
Coming from my own independent agency, Velapoint has a lot to offer anyone who wants to pursue a career in the health insurance industry. The Industry is constantly changing on a daily basis and the team here does everything in their power to make sure we are up to date on new laws and regulations. If you are coach able and come in with an open mind, only greatness will follow. Its that simple here.
Velapoint has truly cornered the market on being one of the largest and most trust worthy brokerages out there. Don't get me wrong every work place has a few rotten apples and bad news spreads fast. This place is full of positive energy all around.
Even with all the craziness in the industry, Velapoint makes it easy if you can follow instructions to hit 6 figures PLUS. You just gotta TRY!!!!
Its a commission sales job, the surges in pay. If you have ever been in sales you know what I mean. This industry has lots of changes on a daily basis, sometimes it directly reflects upon your pay check. When Velapoint makes changes to commissions, you have to pay attention if not, it may come back to bite you. If your inadequate at multitasking or thinking on your feet, this is not the place for you.
Advice to Management
Not everyone is a natural born sales person. I hear lots of complaints from fellow associates that there is not enough "sales" training. Decent amount of product training, not enough sales training.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Velapoint (Hillsboro, OR) in July 2015.
Far too brief and completely unprofessional. I was lead into a small office with one gal and we were in there for a few minutes, apparent it didn't take her long to size me up because I got a call on my drive away from the interview saying I was offered the position.
VelaPoint Insurance will be holding a series of hiring events on August 11th, 18th and 21st to interview candidates for sales, customer service, quality assurance and lead generation seasonal positions. Register now at http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIh4c
