    I have been working at SelectQuote full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You can make great money if you're willing to put the time, I love my coworkers, management is great each manager I've had shows they really care and are invested in our success, i love being able to make 80k+ and know that I can leave work at work and enjoy my free time. lots of room to grow and find where you fit

    Cons

    Certain positions can get repetitive, long hours regularly work 50 hours a week and more during AEP, goals, and quotas can change a couple of times of year so be ready to go with flow and be flexible.

    We are delighted to hear from you and receive your positive feedback. Yes, there can be long hours during our “busy season” (AEP), but hopefully the opportunity for sales during that time makes it worthwhile. Thank you and we are grateful for your 5-star review!

    Pros

    New office. Paid lunches each week.

    Cons

    Long hours Dishonest interview where they highlight their commitment to your work-life balance. There simply isn't a commitment at all.

    Pros

    Amazing leadership is taking place at this branch. The trainers/leaders are there for help if you need it. Always approachable, and willing to help you in your pursuit to be your own boss. You will be as successful as you are motivated to be, and will see direct results from each stride you make. Plenty of food provided (huge plus), never having to cold-call, and the atmosphere is second to none. They want you to be successful. Accept their training and control your attitude and effort. They adjust to what their sales agents respond to. Really enjoy energy drinks? Here's an entire fridge loaded with them. Really enjoy a certain food? We'll cater them in. They even offered free haircuts from a barber during work hours.

    Cons

    Most "cons" about this company are opportunities viewed with a negative attitude. "Long hours" are during the season where there is the most opportunity to earn money.

    I worked at SelectQuote full-time

    Pros

    Work from home, used to be family orientated when I started. Tom Grant had a personal relationship with me.

    Cons

    Poor management, after everything changed in 2017 things just went downhill fast. Every 6 months the compensation plans got hacked over and over. Management could care less about major losses or issues going on. The only dependable manager is Rechstiener. Long hours, AEP demands weekends and extreme hours. I saw sever decline in my health. Once quit I was immediately feeling better and healthier.

    I worked at SelectQuote full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Many pros to working hear, some of mine include: The office space, it is very modern and great break rooms. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. The company events and socials are always fun. You’re able to use your time off and not be penalized on quota. Great support structure with customer care and enrollment. You’re able to focus solely on sales

    Cons

    Very little training/feedback once you transfer into core. Wish I could have had more help learning what works for some of the top agents. Any time off the phone is frowned upon and is used against your production numbers. Even taking a full lunch will hurt your talk time Pay is no where near what is advertised and there are many hoops to jump through, as well as very long hours to even come close to the “average” annualized amount

    We are sorry that your experience was not positive. Our sales environment is highly dynamic and competitive, and may not be the right fit for everyone. We wish you better opportunities ahead of you. Thank you for your feedback.

    Pros

    The training program, trainers and management are top notch. Selling at SelectQuote is an excellent opportunity to thrive financially and grow as a sales professional. Lots of room for growth. They make it easy for you to focus on selling and have plenty of support staff to do the rest. Had I not left to pursue a greater opportunity, I would still be there today.

    Cons

    Very long hours if you want to make it an extremely lucrative career, especially at the beginning and during AEP. Make the most of your time and you’ll do fine.
