"Can be stressful"

Pros

Great training on sales techniques, and they continue the training everyday with in office and in field training by TM's

Cons

Being a straight commission job you don't get paid for customer service but customer service is important to any good sales to keep sales on the books. Makes it hard to keep accounts on the books. Went to many customers that wanted to drop coverage because of lack of customer service but no incentive for agents to perform it with no compensation

Advice to Management

Give some compensation for customer service, you need the service to get the sales and keep them on the books.

    Good Products not much else to add. OK training. Compensation just ok. Benefits are good. Best thing is 401k. Too much ra ra.

    Cons

    Lied to from day one. Told there was paid traing.Did not happen. Looked for ways to get out of paying it. Managers just care about overides.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    One week intense training in Chicago is very good. Field training and support is available after the initial class room style training. Small stipend for first 6 weeks and great new hire bonus schedule that's realistic to achieve. Some leads provided. Great incentive plans. Benefits offered after 6 months to a year depending on the specific benefit.

    Cons

    Need to be highly motivated with good work ethic! Cold calling is a must! The leads that are provided are often over worked and cherry picked prior to distribution. The potential income is largely exaggerated. Name recognition is not what it should be competitively. Most importantly, one is often very surprised by one's expected paycheck. 100% commission job that's not a true con unless you don't understand that. 6 weeks of a stipend isn't much for an inexperienced agent. Don't leave a steady secure paycheck for promises of grandeur!

    Advice to Management

    Need more competitive products. Need better broker compensation to help establish relationships. Need to be honest and realistic with recruits. Quality over quantity should become a business practice.
