Horrible Experience

Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCMay 4, 2017
Fair employer with broad product portfolio. Large territory with overlapping agents which results in some internal competition of mutual clients but a positive place to work.

Deposit Technician I (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SC 29202April 18, 2017
I would come in and get stacks of work.; open mail and separate bills. Afterwards I would run a tape on premiums and enter data to the computer system. Later the check would be bundled, or prepared for bank deposit. I did gain data entry skills. Management was great and the workplace was very nice. The hardest part of the job was trying to be cross trained in other departments, and thinking of ways to cut cost and expenses in the company.. The most enjoyable part of this job was being able to go to the Wellness Center to work out during lunch , and before or after work.

Pros
Fun activities, at work and outside of the work place

Fun workplace where most all of us got along very well and had a good support system.
Appointment Setter (Former Employee) –  Bremerton, WAApril 5, 2017
I had a job that no one liked doing and I was paid well for it. I made cold calls all day to set appointments for new agents in the Washington/Alaska territory. I was quite often bored and did not like it for that reason. The all day rejection didn't bother me because it was great when I got to talk to someone in HR at a business who understood and was willing to give me and our company a chance.
Pros
Free lunches, inspirational sales meetings, efficient online timekeeping system, good friends.
Cons
Noisy call area where I sometimes could not hear on the other end of the line, also a lot of turnover with the agents.

Best Place to Work
Agency Manager (Current Employee) –  Memphis, TNApril 2, 2017
Colonial Life is a great place to work, the company culture is very family oriented, their products are fantastic. This is a great place to become a small business owner with the solid backing of a large organization. This is a commission job, which means you have to work for your money. Rome wasn't built in a day, but if you show up and do the work, it will provide for you. The longer you stay with the company, your income and bonuses continue to grow. My income has tripled every quarter.
Pros
Flexible schedule, great company, great service and leaderahip
Cons
Sales jobs are commission only, so its up to you to earn your paycheck

You become a telemarketer. Management is only worried about their initial profits off of you. They cram as many recruits possible in the small office.
Pros

Cons
Takes weeks to get a licenses & longer to make a sale

Unlimited earning potential and opportunity for growth. Commission schedule is very competitive. Excellent work and life balance. Even though this is a 1099 position, Colonial Life is team based and ensures the success and training of every agent, manager and position. What a great opportunity for the driven individual that wants to be an entrepreneur.

Great people and excellent place to work. Colonial Life has a lot to offer their employees and it shows in the attitudes and public personas. The most enjoyable part of the job are the people who work there. The hardest part is trying to gain access to all parts of the job especially on the job training.

Field Work
Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Shawnee, OKFebruary 25, 2017
Colonial Life is fairly new to the state of Oklahoma. They have had a main office in the territory for about a year.
It's a very fast environment, many times people have told me that Training - is like drinking from a firehose. That was more than true. The training is almost impossible to complete, the instructor enjoys hearing himself talk a lot. I'm sure my time spent in training would have been much more productive if we didn't spend so much time conversing about nothing that had to do with the job.
If your are already a good sales person or already have insurance experience then you would probably love the job. It is commission only, no benefits and no pay during training. You get paid when you sale something, and only then
Pros
Complete training and you will get to make your own schedule
Cons
Making your own schedule means you have to be self motivated
