Pros: agent retreats, attending national meetings in Galveston, TX
Cons: Hard to find time for family, strict underwriters, property and casualty accounts require a lot of supervision
A typical work day includes checking the computer to find out which information is missing and who I need to follow-up with. Contacting clients for forms or missing information. Contacting potential clients, prospecting and marketing. Meet at clients or prospects home in the evening to gather information or present insurance proposal. I learned a lot about finding clients problems or needs and figuring out a way to resolve problems or fill the need. I really enjoy working with the management, They are always so eager to help me and to do joint appointments. I hired several secretaries and enjoyed working with them. I also associate with a lot of good agents within the company on a regular basis. I have become acquainted with a lot of good agents who work for American National throughout the U.S. The hardest parts of the job are;maintaining all client information, keeping up on all property and casualty documentation etc., time management, and underwriters. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting with prospects and clients. I enjoy walking away from a home knowing that a client is satisfied with their home, auto, or life insurance policy. I find a lot of satisfaction knowing that a client has coverage or feels a sense of security in a life insurance policy. I really enjoy meeting new people, spending time with other agents, and helping clients.
