I work with some great people here at, Country Financial. It is a fun environment, and I have gotten to meet many new people. I moved here in February of this year, hoping to find a job more related to my career choice. But this is a great job to have while I'm finishing up school this coming summer in 2017.
COUNTRY offers many great benefits and the people are great!
Agency Manager Assistant (Former Employee) – Cartersville, GA – September 23, 2016
So many wonderful, friendly people. Great benefits and salary was decent. Days were busy, but never overwhelming. I loved working with all the agents, and the majority of people at corporate were just super. The hardest part of the job was dealing with unhappy policy holders which was a rare thing and I saw it as a challenge. You can't go wrong working here.
Agent Assistant (Former Employee) – Mesa, AZ – September 14, 2016
At this employer I worked part time while in school for my medical assisting program. It was a very quiet office with little customer traffic, most instances all issues were handled over the phone. I got to meet a diverse crowd of clients.
All about the benchmarks baby. Make them, do well, don't make them, your fired!!!
Insurance Agent (Former Employee) – Olympia, WA – September 11, 2016
They are all about the benchmarks. If you make them your in good shape, if you don't, your one step from out the door. The agency manager that I worked for was a douche. It would belittle you in front of co-workers, he was arrogant and generally a very uncaring type of person.You will never owner your book here. You can get book given to you though.
Excellent starting wages and commissions split for entry level
Your only as good as your last rolling 3 month production. No sense of security.
The representative that I worked for was thoughtful and fun to be around.
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Lakewood, WA – August 22, 2016
My typical day was from 9-1 M-F. I learned the insurance rules when it comes to home and auto. The management was friendly and eager to help me with ay questions that I may had. my coworkers were friendly also and eager to assist. the hardest part of the job was working with my employer because he was unorganized with his clients documents. The best part about the job was they allowed me work around my school hours.
Agent Assistant (Current Employee) – Montgomery, AL – August 10, 2016
Great company, but I was hired as a part time employee, and thought that would be alright with me. I do not qualify for benefits and need to make more money. But things have changed in my life, and I now need a full time job and would like, if possible, a 401k.
Appraiser (Current Employee) – Bloomington, IL – August 4, 2016
Work day was ok until the mico managed our day Alot of computer skills Management is not very good Co-workers are great Hardest part of the job is the weekly changes they force us to do Working with clients and insured
EXCLUSIVE AGENT (Former Employee) – Batavia, IL – July 19, 2016
Work with clients to help them meet their insurance needs. You work with other agents from many different backgrounds. Meeting life insurance sales goals can be a struggle. Lots of flexibility in your schedule.
Senior Agency Career Consultant /Recruiter (Current Employee) – Arden Hills, MN – July 17, 2016
I have worked at COUNTRY Financial for 16 years and the main reason is the culture of the organization. Great mentors that helped me grow my career and learn new things. Our passion for helping clients achieve financial security is real and honest as is our recruiting process. Work/Life balance is very important at COUNTRY Financial.
Company with solid history, but terrible management
IT Manager (Former Employee) – Bloomington, IL – June 13, 2016
Senior management fails to recognize the backbone of the company, which is the people on the ground doing all the heavy lifting. People work hard, but don't have proper support and framework from management to work smart. Poor acknowledgement of efforts across the board. Senior management, particularly in IT does not understand what it takes to build the various disciplines, but does not hesitate to throw anybody under the bus to assign blame. Bad work life balance for folks particularly in IT. Company has great history, but is going through a touch cycle.
Service Agent (Former Employee) – Reno, NV – June 8, 2016
I loved working in the insurance field. I especially loved taking care clients needs, and helping them solve their problems. The insurance field is wonderful career, processing claims and helping clients in their time of need is what I strive at.
Financial Representative (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – May 9, 2016
Great people to be around, nice support system, and full benefits. Typical days are busy if you stay focused. I do not want to share any more info about this company, I just want to fill out job apps and find somewhere else to work.
