No work/life balance, constant threat of termination
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Colorado – January 28, 2016
The typical week has you leaving on Sunday and Driving 2-10 hours to get to a district... you work a typical work week except you have a BUNCH of paperwork to do at the end of each day. You finish and leave on Friday afternoon and drive 2-10 hours home... Get up Saturday and prepare to leave on Sunday. That's a good week, if you don't have to travel between jobs during the week. There is down time when school isn't in but you must maintain your sales quota during those times, despite not having anyone to sell to.. and there is meetings and training that you travel to when you are not enrolling... You will make about a third of what they say you will.. BUT, at least you have the constant threat of being terminated over your head at all times to motivate you... The ones that actually make it, you will soon learn, are broken, soul-less, and have probably forsaken their families to make it... I wish I had my 5 years back. They kept me going by continually promising that it would get better...In case you think I wasn't cut out for this, I was a state rep of the year and was one they "liked."...good luck.

Working at American Fidelity was the best job I've ever had. I worked in the field and loved the travel. My office was in my home and I was responsible for scheduling my own appointments and doing my own paperwork. Being at the top of the sales team got me to several conventions and trips abroad. The benefits, income and the freedom was so fulfilling, and it only made me work that much harder.
Family values, Treatment, Benefits and travel opportunities
All I can say is their new methods to cut expenses before I left.
I sold life, cancer, short term disability, long term disability, heart insurance.

The traveling and lifting boxed supplies on a daily basis was very harmful to my health. I enjoyed meeting people and helping them navigate thru the process of meeting their family needs. My co-workers were good people and helpful when needed. Staying in hotels on a weekly basis can be lonely at times.
Helping people make decisions regarding their insurance needs.
Away from home on a weekly basis, only 1 fill day at home.
