Farmer's has an awful business plan
Insurance Agent (Former Employee) – Burnsville, MN – July 17, 2017
I have had 5 or 6 district managers from Farmer's insurance ask me me to come work for them as an agent, because it's sooo rewarding and a great place to work.... After 3 of them emailing me again in the same week, I finally agree to work for them as an agent, it was horrible. They provide 0 leads to you, but expect you to pick apart at family and friendships to turn them into business relationships. Training comprised of impersonal, impractical, out-of-touch computer modules, and the same manager(s) that continually pursue you with emails to work for them, barely ever work an 8 hour day themselves, and that's not counting frequent 2 hour lunch breaks and or golf outings. They also lied to me about a compensation hiring bonus once I came on board. Being an insurance agent is not easy getting started, and Farmer's business plan largely neglects new agents. The leadership frankly appears not to care. No direction, leadership, nor help with planning and strategy... nothing.
No leads, bad leadership, no sense of team, direction or caring
