Scam Company
Licensed Insurance Agent (Former Employee), Fairport, NYNovember 25, 2013
They do not really want to help the customers, and they do very little to help their employees but expect you to commit 110% of you time.

Insurance Sales
Insurance Agent (Former Employee), Syracuse, NYOctober 8, 2013
The company will train you on the basics of being an insurance sales agent and provide you basic resources to make sales presentations.

The position is a 1099 and pay is 100% commission based. There is no reimbursement on mileage (other than what you can write off on your taxes). It's up to you to provide the initial investment in terms of obtaining – more... your license, your own computer, vehicle, etc.

The company will provide you leads, but they were only a handful a week. It takes a lot of door to door knocking and cold-calling to get the appointments you need to make any sales.

Management expects you to do whatever it takes to make at least 18 appointments a week and you will get support in your first week or two, but after that it is questionable. It seemed that the focus was on hiring many agents and not in developing the agents already working at the office.

After the first year or two, there is income potential and you do get to make your own schedule (as long as you are performing like you should), but there is a lot of personal investment. – less

Difficult to build client list
Insurance Agent (Former Employee), Syracuse, NYJuly 9, 2013
Pros: free pizza on thursday night call center
Cons: lack of leads that lead to profit
This position required training and having to pay for the NYS exam amoung other expenses. Three days of the week were spent making phone calls to set appointments with existing or potential customers. The remainder of the week was spent driving your personal verhicle to these appointments...many of which were no shows. This is a 100% commission only – more... position. For the first 4 months I was with this company, we were without an Office Manager. My co-workers (other agents), were wonderful and very helpful people with training exercises, however, there was a definate lack of sales leads that were provided. The hardest part of this job was having to tell a customer (who was dying from cancer) that there was no way I could help him or his family with a life insurance policy. The most enjoyable part of this job was helping those who were on a fixed income save a little money on perscription drugs by introducing them to EPIC. – less
