    I have been working at Family First Life full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Family First Life has provided the best training, resources and compensation that im able to more than triple the income what I can do in corporate america working 60-80 hrs a week in only 40 hours so I have time with my family, and on my schedule. FFL you are vested day 1, paid top comp and plenty of leads. FFL has not only helped my family financially but helped me be a better person working on a team of positive...

    You are independent and have to plug into the resources so your success is a result of your work ethic.

    Current Employee - Life Insurance Agent in Louisville, KY

    I have been working at Family First Life full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I used to work as a captive agent for a carrier, but I disliked the culture. I decided to make the leap to an IMO and become an independent agent. I love being an independent agent. My time now my time and if I chose to work, I work, even if you work 60 hours a week you feel freer being accountable to yourself. The comp is outstanding, and I have no limits on me and my time which makes me work harder!

    Cons

    If you don't work hard and learn how to sell you will not succeed.

  3. Amazing culture, support, business model, and especially the people!

    I have been working at Family First Life part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    It is rare to have a company that caters to the person that just want a little extra income and work part-time, or the agent that desires to build their own agency and be the best they can be. Listen to me, I have an EXTENSIVE background in banking. I have seen the best in the field. I worked for the largest Credit Union in my state, and one of the larges in the country. I have been top performer in my field many years...

    Cons

    It is not a con, but FFL's model for acquiring new business is to purchase leads from REPUTABLE lead-generating companies. The good thing is that all the companies they recommend have been tested by FFL themselves. Because agents come from a variety of different backgrounds, I could see some agents with a little experience to prefer to work a warm or cold market instead (traditional prospecting). It would be great if...

    Current Employee - Agent in Eugene, OR

    I have been working at Family First Life full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I got super jaded working with my last IMO. I thought the comp was great and then I found Family First Life. Their method is simple, and if you follow their lead, you can EASILY make way more than you do now because they offer the highest comp in the industry and you get your renewals from day one. The carriers are top notch, and they are bringing in more all the time. I am extremely happy I switched.

    Cons

    Remember people you work for yourself and it is not easy!!

    I have been working at Family First Life full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I saw an ad for this job and since I was out of work from my seasonal job I decided to try it for work in the off season. I won't sugar coat it but this is work and it is hard at first. Slowly and surely with guidance and support I started making money. Then I started to make a ton of money and I quit my seasonal job. The income I am making would not be possible without the support I got from EVERYONE at Family First...

    When I started out I was making very little but I got there.

    I have been working at Family First Life part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I was in pharmaceutical sales, but I wanted to be able to spend time with my kids, so I decided to join Family First Life. I am so glad I did. I make my OWN schedule, and I really like helping families. Right now I am part-time, but I plan to go full-time in the new year. This is a flexible position, but you have to work hard to make money. I love it but, it is not for everyone.

    Cons

    You must be a self starter or you will be very unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    Your training is fantastic thank you for being forward.

    Current Employee - Independent Insurance Agent in Spring, TX

    I have been working at Family First Life full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I started 2018 working nights at a plant I had worked at for 6 years. I worked part-time with Family First Life for a few months, and I decided I wanted more for myself and my family. With the help of Family First Life, my life was changed! I eventually went full-time with Family First Life, and I could not be happier. I will finish 2018 over $150K issue paid! The culture of FFL is selfless, and I would not work with...

    While you learn the process work another job because this is comission only.

    I have been working at Family First Life full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I retired from the police force, but I was too young to really retire. My father was an independent agent, and I decided to take the test and give it a go. I did my research and decided on Family First Life. I chose them for a number of reasons. They encourage you! All The Time! They never wanted me to sell to friends and family they did tell me to buy leads which were invaluable. The company often speaks of helping...

    I have been working at Family First Life full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I met someone at a job fair who tried to introduce me to selling insurance, and I could think was "old man job". A week after that I saw an ad for Family First Life. I decided to call them. The hiring person was very helpful and did not seem to be old. I got my license and met my local upline. Oh, he was a young dude too. I love the fact this company wants to disrupt insurance! I guess insurance is not just for old...

    You must work hard to get somewhere. Sometime I feel like quitting others like I won the superbowl.
