    I worked at Combined Insurance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The sales school training in Chicago was great! Has great products. W2 instead of 1099

    Cons

    No support my first month in the field. Your first 4 weeks in the field is supposed to be accompanied by management. During that time you’re supposed to earn nice bonuses contingent upon your manager going out to train you how to write policies. That didn’t happen. I was told “You can do it”! PMA! (Positive mental attitude). Needless to say, I walked away with a bad taste in my mouth for selling insurance. Oh and... another thing, when management goes out with you while you’re in training. You’re supposed to write the policies, NOT THEM. When my manager finally went out with me he wrote all the policies for himself. I walked away empty handed.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure management is actually doing the “BLUEPRINT for SUCCESS” with the agents. Not sending them out on the own.

    I have been working at Combined Insurance full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great training, flexible schedule, lots of earning and promotion opportunity. Residual income! Doing something that helps people.

    Cons

    If you won’t listen, won’t follow the training, won’t go out to work and really give the system an honest best effort try, don’t waste your time and the managers’ time. This isn’t for slackers.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate level- stop adding so many new “security” measures. They probably aren’t doing any good and just make things more complex.
