    I worked at SelectQuote full-time

    Pros

    Work from home That's about the only PRO this company gets.

    Cons

    Ripoff! They will fly you to their headquarters in KS and wow you, don't fall for it. This operation is a trainwreck and they know it. Bottom line the leads are tiered and when you start, they sure make you pay for your training by essentially taking all your money (commission) away. you'll get about 1-3% or your premium. My class last July had 27 people (not all remotes, but all agents). 7 months later, more than half are gone. You can do better, don't do it!!!

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

    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.

    Pros

    Amazing management team, work from home options, excellent pay and 401k match. Multiple trips to Hawaii, Grand Cayman, Jackson Hole awarded yearly and weekly prizes awarded for top performers.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is excellent outside of two busy months in AEP. You are paid for Overtime and fed multiple times per week during that time frame which cancels out any real cons.

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

    Pros

    Overall, I am have been very pleased with the work and the position I have been working for the last six months with SelectQuote. This is my first job in which I have been able to work from home... and I absolutely love it! I feel that the company as well as managers value us as employees and that's also a plus. The environment we work in can get also get a bit hectic but what's also great is that despite of that my team still manages to have fun! There is plenty of opportunity for advancement in the company and I have noticed that there is also longevity here if that is what you want.

    Cons

    I don't really have much as of now as a concern as I have been here less than one year. I have not heard though of anything about possible pay increases or Annual Reviews for raises but hopefully with maybe approaching my one year here there may be an opportunity for that. I'll just patiently wait for that though.
