Everyday is different while meeting new people.
Insurance sales, business (Current Employee), kennewick, waNovember 7, 2013
I do a lot of prospecting for new business. I also do cold calling on my down time.
I have made great strides in how to approach a business and managing my time.
Sales is a tough business especially when it is commission only, but its enjoyable being able to have control of your destiny.

Colonial Life is a wonderful company.
Commissioned Agent (Current Employee), Huntsville, ALJune 3, 2013
As a Sales Representative with Colonial, I was able to assist employers in the designing of their Employee Benefits Package. This was very rewarding to say the least. The Colonial family is unparalleled anywhere!

I also understand that when an employee's hours are reduced, that employee must look for ways to make that bottom line more workable. The first thing to go are the supplemental insurance benefits that I provide. Therefore, my renewals are becoming almost nil. – less

Productive.
Premium Technician II (Former Employee), Columbia, SCAugust 9, 2012
Pros: free lunches, opportunities to volunteer at harvest hope
Cons: the company doesn't promote within.
I applied premium to million dollar accounts. I have very good skills with word, excel and outlook. I learned how to use a 10 key calculator. I really enjoyed working with numbers and using my knowledge to reconcile discrepancies. My co-workers were a great team to work with. Management was barely involved in my day to day work.
