    I worked at Platinum Supplemental Insurance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    none now. At one time it was different

    Cons

    Greed and not caring, has changed this place. There is currently 2 class actions against this company. 1 that has over 50 customers that have been taken advantage of. 2nd. Over 50 agents that have been taken advantage of and frauded out of millions of dollars in their renewals. I would stay away and look elsewhere

    Advice to Management

    You can tell everyone this is just disgruntled employees. But the fact is people left on their own will . Not disgruntled but disappointed in the direction of fraud and mismanagement. Facts are facts Fix the problem and don't blame!

    I have been working at Platinum Supplemental Insurance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The career I've had with Platinum has allowed my wife and I to dream bigger than we ever thought. We set goals and achieve them now that were once completely out of reach. I've always wanted to find an opportunity that provided me and my family financial freedom and with Platinum we found it. If you are looking for a company that provides outstanding training with ongoing support with a high six-figure income opportunity you have found it. If you like big commissions, bonuses, incentive trips and opportunity for results driven advancement then Platinum is the company.

    Cons

    A challenge many agents face is the idea of switching from a "secure" job where they are paid a fixed wage or salary to commmission only sales. You'll never be paid what you're worth working for a wage or salary. Commission will always pay more. Just remember, the more prepared you are and the harder you work the more you'll make.

    I have been working at Platinum Supplemental Insurance full-time

    Pros

    I came to Platinum looking for an opportunity to increase my income and make a difference for my family. I was skeptical for sure, but after 3 weeks, I found that the money opportunity was real, the product and service we sell is real and the leadership was honest and trustworthy. The training and support is excellent. For those that simply follow the Platinum Process and stick to the verbiage, they will find the success. Beyond the financial rewards, helping families when they face illness is incredibly rewarding.

    Cons

    Traveling 4 days a week and getting used to the daily schedule is certainly an adjustment. It took a little while for me, my wife and my kids to get used to the travel, but the financial rewards far outweigh the sacrifice. Working full commission for the first time in my life was definitely and adjustment, but the Platinum process is simply fail proof --- when you do follow it!!

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to advertise more to make more people aware of this opportunity. It's changed the course of my life, more people should find out about Platinum.
