Pros: good commission, work when you want, training, uncapped income
Cons: no sales, means no money, you pay for almost all office expenses
For the most part you control your day other than mandatory training, with lots of cold calling and canvasing. For the first three years you really need to hustle that means working nights and weekends. NYL provides all the training you need, and there is a lot to learn. Management is always looking out for you, but don’t be fooled their also out for themselves. Your peers are just like you trying to make money and doing whatever they can to make it, most of the time you’re going to want to work with someone else, it makes the day’s weeks, and months go by easier. The most difficult part of the job is finding clients to go and see, let’s face it no one wants to take about death and your selling life insurance. If you’re making sales the money and job are great, but if you’re not it could be the worst job you ever had. On top of that you have to pay for almost everything, cubical or office, phone, internet, fax, copier. So if you haven’t made any sales you can end up owing them money.
