I have been working at Velapoint full-time (More than 3 years)
I've worked for some of the best reviewed companies both in and out of the insurance field and Velapoint is the best job I've ever had. Decent pay, good hours, constructive criticism and constant support from multiple staffing departments. Commissions are lower than other insurance agencies, but with absolutely no chargebacks and an ongoing bonus structure, it more than makes up the difference. Plus, no cold-calling, leads generated for you, licensing and contracting taken care of for you, it's an agent's dream.
There is an expectation of production, some people can't handle it.
Advice to Management
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
