    Pros

    Top producers get rewarded here. If you sell, it is hard to beat the comp plan. Bonuses paid out within a week of the sale, monthly residuals paid out for life of the client, and those monthly residuals get vested and turn into 30X their face value. Work-life balance is completely controlled by you. You set your own schedule and can hit your targets in as little time as you decide, no office you have to "log" into every day. Heartland provides a foundation to sell but you can do whatever you want to obtain the sale and grow your book of business. (*as long as it's legal)

    Cons

    No expense account until you become a TM (Territory Manager). Not a good role if you do not know how to prospect for business.

    Pros

    Paid the week sale is made. Residual income on all sales for life. Equity owner on accounts that can be sold. Work life balance. Make your own schedule, no micro managing. Customer satisfaction from service is amazing. They back up what they sell.

    Cons

    If you need to be pushed daily, no one is going to push you. If you need a normal work schedule to keep organized, you won’t make it. This job is only for a true hunter or true networking relationship builder.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. You do make your own schedule

    Cons

    Wow where to begin. If you don’t have money saved up. You will not make it. If you don’t already have a book of business That you can call on. You won’t make it If your not willing to call your close friends and relatives that have businesses, you won’t make it. If your not willing to walk in 40 businesses a day, you won’t make it. I was told honesty was a big part of the job, but witnessed several times management said whatever to clients to get the sale. If your not willing to work with a system that is 5 years outdated with information that is no longer relevant, you won’t make it. If your not willing to get hung up on, and told to leave The premises by business owners, you won’t make it. Even asking people that are making money at Heartland to help you or give you some wisdom, yeah it ain’t happening. Everyone that is making money will not share how because they don’t want you getting any of their business. Management will tell you activity activity. You need to be making 40 drop ins a day and 100 phone calls. So if you can’t do that run!!! Time after time I had meetings with business owners and management could not figure out how much we could save them. I was told to tell the clients we can save you money, we just don’t know how much.

    They treat their employees very well, and the Payroll & HR solutions are excellent. Wonderful work/life balance and freedom to own your book of business. Lots of upward mobility in a growing division. Even at entry level positions, your voice will still be heard by management.

    Cons

    If you do not have industry experience, you need to be a quick study to get off the ground.
