    I have been working at SelectQuote full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get exactly what you put into it.. as basic as that sounds, numbers are there to prove it. Compensation is more than fair. This is a commission job! If you take/make the calls (the actual, legitimate, leads COMPANY PROVIDES you) there shouldn't be a reason for you not to be successful. Phone sales are not for everyone, but with the training and support you do get...it is borderline impossible not to succeed. SQ does pay you hourly and does give you an opportunity to work as much as you choose. Sure it is a 8-5 job, but if you're truly looking for a good place to grow and if you do consider yourself a workaholic, there's absolutely no way you wouldn't be happy with the paycheck, the benefits and the work environment. Whether you have experience with sales or you maybe you haven't..as long as you believe in yourself that's all that matters. Bring the work ethic, Select Quote will make sure you succeed.

    Cons

    Personally, I don't have anything negative to say. Opportunity is there. You have goals to meet (which are more than realistic), and if you do meet the goals, I guarantee you will be very successful individual with a great work life balance.

    I have been working at SelectQuote full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work environment is very pleasant. Everyone that I have come into contact with while working here has had the I want to help you mentality. Management is truly there to coach to benefit me, not as a gotcha. The compensation is set up for those who want to win to make great money. I have seen other companies that say you can make a 6 figure income and they show you one person that might be doing that, that is not the case here a 6 figure income is in reach for all those that chose to learn and win. I am glad Selectquote took a chance on me.

    Cons

    As with any job there are cons, This is a great company to work for and though I don't "like" everything there is nothing I don't like worth typing.

    Pros

    Great work environment, culture is fun, happy employees, bosses are down-to-earth, regularly receive raises + bonuses, and I made a lot of friends here! Can really see myself here for a long, long time.

    Cons

    This is a call-center environment- be prepared for that! But lots of fun activities to get you away from the desk when you need it! Many positions are sales based, but not all! If you join in a sales position, be prepared to sell! That is your job!

    Pros

    Fun work environment as long as you make sales.

    Cons

    Didn't turn out to be a lot of the things expected. Told it was an 8-5 and made large amounts of $. In order to make the money you are told not to take lunch and work weekends.

    Cons

    Given tons of information in a short period of time and you may not be hired after the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP)
