- 4.0Sep 26, 2017Secretary IICurrent Employee, more than 8 yearsBloomington, IL
Great benefits and pay. Started as s temp employee and worked myself up to a good salary even with out having a degree. Work with great people and management. Work life balance for me personally is good in the position I'm in.
Company is moving towards a more production driven atmosphere. Lots of long term employees have left due to the amount of changes that negatively effected their work life balance. Company used to be huge on employee development and has really gone away from that. No opportunity to move up and in most cases company does not allow you to post for other positions because of the state the company is in.4

Flexible hours, great resume builder, great learning experience.
Definitely depends on the agent and the office. All training done online which definitely does NOT help when there are so many different scenarios. My coworkers and agent were not very friendly when asking for help or when I made errors. Struggled my entire time to catch on but was scared to ask for help and was scolded for asking questions or making errors. As far as sales, again depends on your agent. They either invest a lot where you get many different lead sources or not very many. Cold calling was not a fun experience, especially when all numbers provided were phones disconnected . Never had enough people to call and would have to keep going through the same 700 potential phone numbers. Received pay of $9.50 with bonus structure which was never able to get. (Combination of my lack of sales skills and was just difficult to get to the quota.) Was told flexible hours and possibility of salary during interview which never came to fruition.
