productive and fun workplace with game room and plenty of bonuses
Lead Qualifying Agent (Former Employee) – boston, ma – September 4, 2014
A typical work day consisted of calling different clients from different states and qualifying them for auto insurance. We had to adapt a lot and often build temporary relationships with clients in order to qualify them. The environment was very friendly, we had about 3 breaks a day and the area was amazing
Outbound Insurance Sales Agent (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – August 11, 2014
Typical work day was logging on your dialer, receiving "connects" which were ideally customer's looking to possibly switch their insurance provider.
Often due to internal software issues, the majority of an agent's day was spent talking to customer's who had already received dozens of calls, so were naturally irritated or customer's who had no interest in switching their carrier to start with.
Management was great but stats is everything, regardless of bad leads or answering machine's an agent receives throughout the day.
Extremely high-pressure when the majority of an agent's day was spent on factors which were out of the agents control.
Great entry-level sales and entry-level insurance position, while making a decent salary
Lead Qualifier (Current Employee) – Westborough, MA – July 15, 2014
A typical day of work is multi-tasking in call setting helping customers over the phone. The management is very helpful and kind spirited. I work side by side with all my fellow coworkers and everybody there is very nice as well. The hardest part of my job is keeping my patience and composure with all the clientele we handle. But the most enjoyable part about the job is that it's so laid back and fun to work here, and the management is the best and nicest people I've ever worked for.
free breakfast, great atmosphere, good benefits, steady hours
not much overtime, difficult to get promoted, bad job security
Manager (Former Employee) – Satellite Office – May 27, 2014
A low-end base salary with a bonus opportunity, No requirements for management positions, no training for them either.
Glorified call-center, make upwards of 100 calls a day and expected to sell no less than 3 auto insurance policies a day. You are cold calling internet generated leads, most times generated by a pop-up, the same pop-up ads you are smart enough to block. As a result, you are rarely dealing with intelligent, financially responsible people, fortunately you are trained in highly aggressive tactics to get people into policies.
Although many of the people there remain my friends it is due to the tight-knit "clique" environment that employment comes down to knee-jerk reactions and opinions, not validity or fairness.
Unstable work environemnt, Management is a fraternity, Everything is a sales pitch.
Inside Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – March 13, 2014
- Long hours and weekends, always on the phone - Learned about insurance sales - Management is young and inexperienced - Co workers are amazing, but fresh out of college. - hardest part of the day is calling customers who do not want to be bothered. - Most enjoyable part of the day is helping customers
Lead Generator (Former Employee) – Westborough – February 26, 2014
Outbound calls which are BOUGHT off line. Once you inform the consumer internet or online. They say take me off the Do Not call List. You are pretty much an ice breaker and if you are good to MAY work. Training was horrible and management does not care anything about but numbers. Customer HA forget it. Customer Service give 1 and that is because I am nice guy. REVOLVING door does not stop!! They certainly have their favorites. Obvious I was not one of them. Guy that runs the floor WAS sales agent. I wonder why he is controlling Lead Generators?? Hippie that I think is little weird!!
Coffee, and Free Lunch few Fridays if they are selling policies.
Too Stressful, Coaching Horrible, Temp job basically.
Licensed (Current Employee) – Westborough, MA – January 27, 2014
Good entry level job. Not the most exciting place to work it gets very mundane after a while. The management doesn't really care about anything except numbers. Hardest part is dealing with the customers because of the way the company generates leads. The best part of the job is the work environment and co-workers.
"Don't worry you'll make money here... eventually!"
Insurance Sales Agent (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – November 1, 2013
Youthful, fun company to work for, however there are many downsides to a company that grows this fast. The sales training takes 8 weeks which is grueling on $10.50/hour. At the end of the sales training, you find out that you don't make your full bonus until after 3 months that you have been on the floor. The sales trainer does not respect you for the effort that you put in, he just wants to hit his numbers so that he can get his bonus, and it is very clear that he does not care about your well being.
Senior Account Manager (Former Employee) – boston – September 27, 2012
work hard play hard is definitely their motto. They will give pretty much anyone an opportunity and if you work hard they'll reward you. Good start environment, high energy. They do have you work weekends and stay late.
