Tell the truth.......you are only there to make the owner richer, and to deflate your own bank account. Even the top producers will tell you that they are NOT making the type of money that they need to support their family. They can't even pay the rent or mortgage, let alone support their family. That is why the agents have SOO much pressure on themselves to build a team, because they soo desperately need your override just to survive. They need it, because the truth of the matter is that the only person doing well here = is the owner himself and he knows it. Everything about this company is total FRAUD ! They will stack agents under a few, just to make a few look better and so you actually think that you can build a team !!! Team building here is a revolving door and has been for 30 years. The company never grows either; it just stays the same year after year because more agents quit every year than they add each year. Why ? If it were soo great here, why wouldn't folks want to stay ? There is a HUGE reason for this and why they quit....... Then SLS will LIE to you about why soo many agents quit as well, and they will say it is because they were unethical or they had marital issues. NOPE ! They have to lie about it, think about it = because it everyone really knew the truth and WHY soo many of the agents quit, and that they quit because you can't make a living here = and that they can make great money selling life insurance (but just not by NOT selling for SLS), then ALL of the new agents would quit asap, correct ? Even the few that they stack agents under are going broke....... and they will complain about how broke they are 24/7 at the annual meeting. RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN.......YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED !!!

Wow, congratulations!!! I think I've heard, (correct me if I'm wrong), ONE retired from sls in 16-17 yr history. At least you do get renewals. If you don't retire from the FE industry when you leave sls, (like the MAJORITY do), you lose ALL you renewals & months 10, 11, 12 of active business the day you leave. It's in the contract. Even if vested for 3 or more years, you lose it all. Just a suggestion, but if I was looking to make sls my career, it would be very helpful if the (current employee) comments would directly respond to all these seemingly negative facts that the ex-agents are taking time to post. Thanks

The only thing CARING about this agency = is the way that they take very good care of the money that they FAIL to pay you and keep from you per their agent contract. COMPASSIONATE only to the women that they are trying to hook up with. AGENCY.........more like the firm, a cult, or the mob. Once you join, it could be very costly when you try to leave and get the heck out.............
