Commercial Customer Service Representative

What’s the best way to have a lack of compensation and incentive conversation in your department? I went above and beyond for years doing extra work, organizations etc and nothing has been reflected in pay. I thought my 5 year was going to finally show something but it did not. I’ve inquired about pay but it’s gotten nowhere.

        There are a few key employees I enjoyed working with, some good lessons that came from running client meetings, and inspirational/emotional stories of how senior advisors got started in the business.


        Lack of training, lack of consistent pay, condescending tone and attitude towards new advisors, "PEP" period can last for several months if you do not get any good cases to close right when you start, the "base pay 2k/month" contract is not good, senior leaders act like Equitable is the only company that pays financial advisors fairly but this company is just structured to where the top 10% of advisors make all the money and the other 90% make under 40k/year, with the average new person's income being about 10-20k in their first year from my experience.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      6 interview rounds and halfway through. How many times does someone have to answer “so tell me about yourself” does it take to get an offer. Beginning to become exhausting. Tips on remaining enthusiastic through multiple round interviews would be helpful.
