    I have been working at USHEALTH Advisors for more than a year

    Pros

    Great commission schedule, innovative products, that are "real insurance", and a great training program with leads galore they literally hand them out like candy. More importantly it feels like a family.

    Cons

    It is 100% commission so you get out what you put in.

    Advice to Management

    Smaller teams would make for more productive managers and effective training for newer folks.

    Pros

    Great Opportunity for income and growth. Overall company feeling of support

    Cons

    100% commission, no guaranteed pay for the work, no guarantee of a sale. Not good for someone with health issues or responsibilities that take time out of the work week. Long hours and commitment required to make satisfying money.

    Advice to Management

    Some form of baseline pay no matter how small or a regulation on how much you need to work to make a decent check. even a good salesperson putting in a lot of time could go time with 0 pay.

    Pros

    - Good weekly payment advances - Good culture in office - Flexible hours since you work whenever you choose to

    Cons

    - 100% commission - No additional benefits provided (401k, insurance, etc) - Not great leads since a bunch of other people have already blown them up - Work is extremely repetitive - People are getting declined and canceling policies all the time so it takes forever to get your book of business built

    I worked at USHEALTH Advisors full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Company has a good business model. Its low to zero risk, high reward for them(the company). The potential agent pays for everything out of their own pocket(License,leads,etc) whether they succeed or fail. Everyone on the company ladder gets their own piece(cut) of the pie from the Agents sale. "Loop hole-ish" type products/alternatives for folks who can't afford traditional coverage. Training is very good. Commissions are good and the top producers have a good thing going. The company makes good revenue off their top producers, but they also make good revenue from Agents that come & go,(those that last less than 6 months & only make less than a dozen sales as they are abundant). Managers are constantly hiring agents 1-2 times a week year round. Both long & short term agents are vital for revenue Manager & company. Choosing the right market/office is very important & vital to personal success. One can make enough sales and climb into management positions. Once there, you can have agents make money for you as you get a percentage of their sales.

    Cons

    Like in any Sales industry: insurance, cars, real estate, tele-communications, subscriptions, security, advertising, etc.... Only less than 10% are top producers, one has to find their niche and be at the right place at the right time. Like in any 100% commission position, this role takes about 6-12 months to turn negative into a positive so be prepared/patient to invest your own cash at the beginning and rely on savings to get by until one makes their break through. Published on the magazines, majority of the National top producers are white men,there are some minority successes but the number could be improved. Correlation between personal success and particular office/market is too great, more consistently can be appreciated. Majority of leads are very bland and the overwhelming method of prospecting is cold calling, prepare your tush for a lot of dialing.

    Advice to Management

    Not too much advice, the company is having success on profit. For the potential employee, the hiring process is a turn off with the weekly mass group presentations. Understand its a numbers game for the hiring manager. If you did not like the interview feel. I would recommend interviewing at a different office and then make a judgement.

    Pros

    Training and attention is good as long as you are producing. If not you get less help.

    Cons

    100% commission. You should be prepared to support your self for a year while getting started. You can get going faster if you are ok with making 300 to 500 calls/day. Be aware of the office you decide to work in as all offices have a different culture. Attempted motivation from upper management is coming from people who have made millions of $ so they have lost touch. Make sure you are able to motivate yourself to succeed. Be careful challenging management when they are wrong they will terminate you without warning or conversation to avoid embarrassment.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on your commitments to rewarding agents that work hard to hit milestones. Milestone awards come very late minimizing the significance. Would be helpful if training was more organized.

    Pros

    Most of the other independent contractors are nice enough. The cookouts are great. $100 /month for leads is better than most insurance companies out there.

    Cons

    Training - (taken from USHA's website) "They know how to succeed in the health product market and will provide you with the training and materials that will enable you to succeed as well". The translation to that is they give you 2 scripts (1 for businesses and 1 for individuals). You make your 300 calls per day, hoping to talk with 30 people to make your 3 sales. Your trainer will coach you along the way; however, another trainer will come in and give completely contradictory advice to what the first trainer just gave you. After a week or so, the script changes and you go with that one. Before I signed my contract, I specifically asked if it was cold-calling and was given an unequivocal "no". That said, there are 3 lists of potential clients: 2 for businesses (east coast and west coast) and 1 for "interested" individuals (many of which have been called dozens (literally on the low side) of times. My biggest issue, however, was being told to mislead (lie may be a bit strong here, albeit fitting) clients. USHA only sells their insurance, but we are supposed to tell clients that we have access to all the plans in their state and will match them with the best value for them. If you are asked which insurance company you represent, you are supposed to tell them that you are not an agent, only an adviser. 100% commission + 99.999% cold-calling + 50 hours/week + 300 calls/day = 1 huge con

    Weed out independent contractors that have integrity - you will save everyone involved a lot of time.

    Pros

    When you do sell a policy the commission os decent

    Cons

    They make you work very long hours and are 100% commission. No paid training and are constantly telling when you need to work even though you are 1099. Too many people do not qualify for the policy.

    The family environment is amazing, and the compensation is unparalleled. If you’re a hard worker, there is no better way to build a lucrative career.

    Cons

    It’s 100% commission, so you will have to put in some work to get amazing rewards.

    Pros

    None that are worth mentioning really. You get to make hundreds and hundreds of phone calls for very few appointments.

    Cons

    The leads are typically very aged and many never requested anything way of insurance. There is not as much independence and flexibility as they hype. It is 100% commission, there is no salary as many of their ads claim. Training is weak, the spend more time coaching you how to get appointments than on the products. The coverage is not near as good as the want customers to believe, even if you are healthy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop exaggerating the job and the insurance, neither are that great!
