Potential for a lot of money, not sure if it was worth it.
Insurance Agent (Former Employee) – Whitestone, NY – April 10, 2017
Insurance like lawyers get a bad rep, yes they are necessary and helpful but because of all the opportunity and the loopholes that allow you to make so much money many agents give the rest a bad name.
If you join make sure to be circumspect of everyone in the office, I do not know about other offices but the Whitestone office was breaking MANY MANY rules and laws in order to make more money.
If you really wanna be successful and are not that good of a sales man, work the house accounts, don't even bother going all out to get your own accounts until you have a good enough base where you have a steady income where the following year or two you can focus all your time and energy on prospecting for your own accounts without fearing that you won't be making ends meet.
Do not fall for the hype.
The people above you will hype you up, it's their job, and yes you should be hyped and happy, but don't fall for delusionary and unfeasable ideas and dreams.
Do what I say and believe me you can make this company work for you. Fall for the hype and you're gonna leave this place very salty.
Also do not follow the people who are committing illegal acts and breaking policy.
Do not put your life in your managers hands on false hopes and promises, your mission is to create a sustainable income of residual income through house accounts and then you can prospect.
Also keep your leads to yourself, their may be a lot of throat cutting in your office.
If you are a good salesman you will make A LOT of money
CYou always have to watch your back depending which office you're in, people are always looking to one up you.
