Focus is home, auto, life
Insurance Agent (Current Employee), Longview, TXSeptember 4, 2014
Pros: great rates and products
Cons: focus is limited to home, auto, life.
Home, Auto, Life.....that is their focus. You really need to be an agency manger if you want to make the most money, but you need to excel at life sales to have a chance.

Company changing and going in a direction that I was't willing to go such as selling health insurance.
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee), Powhatan VADecember 5, 2013
Pros: my job was 5 minutes from my house
Cons: the other sec. i had to work with for 10 years was not the easiest person to work with.
A typical day at work was from 8:30am to 5:00pm with an hour for lunch. Beginning with opening up the office, checking voice mail, checking for things that may have came over the fax machine over night, opening the mail and delivering it to the appropriate person or taking care of it myself if it were a change or something that was mailed to a customer for a signature for example. I learned many things, how to quote home and auto, Farm Bureau's accounting system called Mas 200, How to make changes to policies through their Prism system, the copier and fax machine and how to process the membership dues.I learned how to do binders for homeowners' policies, how to fax changes for mortgagee clauses. I have a Property and Casualty license. I also attended the board meetings every other month and wrote up the minutes for the Presidents approval. The management was great they were there to support you with any problems that you may have and to give you praise when it was warranted. In the beginning there were just 3 in the office 1 agent and 2 sec. then they combined the branch office and the main office and this changed the dynamics of the office. Then the co-workers were a mix of 4 in the office and two worked against two it was like tug of war. One sec. and agent and one sec. and agent, not one team. After I left I went back to see the agent that I had worked with for 13 years who had supported me the whole time and the other agent said it was much different since I had left and that he was sorry of the way I was treated. The hardest part off the job was when Farm Bureau decided to non-renew all the homeowner' policies and try and rewrite them through one of the 10 or so new partner carriers learning all new systems billing, quoting, claims, ect. The most enjoyable part of my job were the people I came in contact with some of the customers, managers, other sec.and agents from around the state, and the board members.

Call Center Representative, Processer (Former Employee), Manhattan, KSJune 20, 2013
The staff is very discriminating, they hire you as one thing and tell you one schedule and then get mad when you don't switch to a different schedule they would like after being hired.

MY CO-WORKERS AND MANAGEMENT TEAM WERE AWESOME. EVERYDAY WAS A NEW LEARNING EXPERIENCE.

Good place to work
Personal Lines Insurance Agent (Former Employee), Manchester, TNFebruary 26, 2013
It is a great place to work from a value and family type environment. It was my first job out of college. The pay was below normal but there was opportunity to make more but seemed like it would take a lot longer than anticipated. Could ask for a better manager or co workers.The value they put in their employees was great. It was comission only after 6 months so it was very challenging.

A great company
Agent (Former Employee), South CarolinaSeptember 19, 2012
Pros: contest, variable work schedule, base plus comm
Cons: product specific quota
It was a pleasure working for South Carolina Farm Bureau. The training is great and the support network as well. It’s a performance driven company for life insurance. If you want to sell life insurance and are driven, you will be working for an incredible company. Work schedule after training is highly variable to your client’s needs. It can be seen as an 8-5 job, but the job follows you everywhere. If you're in the office you're not making sells. That being said your schedule can be made around personal obligations and the company supports it. Not to mention the great benefit of being able to sell a variety of other insurance products, that will allow you to meet a variety of your client’s needs.

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Des Moines, IAMarch 28, 2012
Pros: i work from my apartment and i am self employed
Cons: when people won't talk to me
I have been talking to people I know that have homes, cars, and are recently married about their insurance. I have learned how to put together insurance quotes and explain the coverage to people. I work for a guy that is in another town which makes it a little more difficult. The hardest part of the job for me is setting the appointments and getting people to switch their insurance.
