    I worked at United Insurance full-time

    Pros

    It is a large company with many locations. This provides the opportunity to further advance your career in the company. Most positions require you to work one on one with customers.

    Cons

    Some of the locations (agencies) are small and have a high turnover rate due to the rate of pay and workplace moral.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to be more involved, or at least more aware of what is happening with their personnel in the local agencies. Workplace moral is lacking in some of the agencies.

    Pros

    Agents get incentives for collecting premiums at insured's homes.

    Cons

    Antiquated door to door policy sales. Product offerings do not really benefit the clientele. Difficult for insureds to make payments. No compensation for mileage driven to collect premiums. Hours spend and mileage accumulated on personal vehicle render pay to less than minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs to modernize and offer products that better the clientele. I would not one those policies for myself nor would I recommend them to anyone I personally.

    Pros

    Relationships you build with your customer base
    Set your own schedule
    Having a dedicated debit group so you are not buying leads

    Cons

    Sales structure, lack of underwriting support overall disconnect between the agents in the field and the home office. You have to jump through hoops to get answers and long hold times when you call customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in training from the beginning especially for people without a sales background. Place more emphasis on developing your employees versus how much did you sell. United makes a lot of money off the work its agents perform yet they nickel and dime the agents for postage, mileage reimbursement, lunches etc.

    Pros

    Get to meet people from all walks of life

    Cons

    too many uncontrollable targets to meet sales goals. Set up is to only pay the company consistently for the hard work of the agent

    Advice to Management

    Be honest when you communicate all the pros and cons of the position

    Pros

    Great company, great benefits, hard work- very rewarding

    Pros

    The ability to make your own schedule. That is the only positive aspect of this place if you must know.

    Cons

    Worst job I've ever had. Management lies. Contract is total game playing par excellence. You will never get ahead of the curve.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to agents. blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

    I worked at United Insurance full-time

    Pros

    They start you off with about 6 weeks of guaranteed income

    Cons

    No compensation/reimbursement for gas or wear and tear on your vehicle. Also a very complicated formula for determining your monthly pay.
