Productive work place.
Receptionist (Former Employee), Saint John, KSNovember 26, 2014
I didn't have a lot to do. It is in a small town so it isnt constant work for a receptionist. I got to meet a lot of people and learn a lot about insurance that I never knew. My manager, the agent in charge, was nice. I enjoyed most of my coworkers. The hardest part of my job was understanding "insurance talk" and the most enjoyable was meeting all the people.

One person office with flexibility and taught myself most of the job
Marc Prud'homme Agency / Admin Assistant (Former Employee), Farmington, MIAugust 22, 2014
Pros: independence, and a windowed office.
Cons: lack of teamwork
A typical day included answering the phones, initiating the sales process for auto & home policies. It required a lot of research with home office regarding company policy, and coordination with adjusters.
The agent was out of the office 50% of the time, so I enjoyed the independent work environment, managing the activities in his absence.
I did not have coworkers in this job, but had a lot of contact with other agents' offices and home office by phone, and was able to establish connections with them. I was so impressed with the service and helpfulness I received from Home Office.
What I enjoyed most was working independently, and having a flexible work schedule. However, I would have liked the agent to be somewhat more engaged in the process.

I learned about yet another industry.

Farm Bureau Ins was a good place to work
ISSR (Insurance Service Support Rep) (Former Employee), Lansing, MIAugust 21, 2014
Cons: no advancement when you work in the field
I enjoyed working at Farm Bureau. The office was pleasant and the agents I worked with were great. Every day was a learning experience. At times things were very slow and at other times things were very hectic. Better to be busy than have nothing to do.

Company provided training every 3 months and were there whenever you needed them.

The most difficult job was assisting new agents to build a book of business and knowing that they did not have what it takes to build a career in insurance. Sad watching them struggle.

State Licensed Insurance Office Manager (Current Employee), Birmingham, MIJune 24, 2014
Pros: wonderful boss
Cons: work before, through lunch and after work to try and keep up.
A typical day of work involves answer phones continually in a very busy environment. Processing changes to clients needs and answering billing and policy questions. I learn something new every day. Co-workers are a mixed bunch. Most are dependable. The hardest part of the job is not getting to everyone by the end of the day because the work load is more than the hours in a day. The most enjoyable part of my job is the customers appreciation and kindness.

to manage and increase a insurance Book of business
Insurance Agent (Former Employee), Newton, KSOctober 13, 2013
Pros: work as much or as little as you want
Cons: if you didnt work you didnt get paid
I meet with Clients through out the day, making sure their insurance coverage was adequate for their needs and budget. I learned that customer service is the key to longevity of my customer base. The hardest part of this career was delivering money from a Life Insurance Policy to the survivors. My manager was also my mentor, he trained me very well in the benefits of life and annuity product. I achieved significant success multiple times, and was recognized on a global stage. The most enjoyable part of the career was going on the sales trips.
