Perspective from a Temp job
Associate Accountant (Former Employee), Minneapolis, MNJune 2, 2015
Great people, and great culture. I worked in the Financial Reporting department, the pace often changes depending on the time of the year. Hardest part of the job was keeping up with the change of pace. But it had a relaxed atmosphere if your getting your work done.

Considered self-employed, little contact with other representatives
Financial Representative (Former Employee), Appleton, WIMarch 9, 2015
Pros: interaction with clients and schedule flexibility.
Cons: 100% commission, self-employment status for taxes.
Meetings with clients to assess their current financial situation and needs. Developed plan to improve financial status.

Learned computer skills, financial planning certifications.

Little contact with upper management.

Co-workers consisted of 3 other representatives who shared office -- some consulting with them for best plan for clients.

Hardest part of job, living on straight commission with no savings to fall back on.

Most enjoyable part of job was ability to meet needs of clients and to develop friendships with them.

In bound call center
Advanced Customer Service Rep-Annuites (Former Employee), Appleton, WUFebruary 26, 2015
Worked with great co-workers. Management in my department was inadequate in my mind. Hardest part of the job is all the metrics you need to meet to be promoted.

Professional environment with supportive leaders.
Field Support Associate (Former Employee), Appleton, WIFebruary 23, 2015
Pros: flexible schedule, compensation
Cons: temporary position, repetitive work
In my position I would make outbound calls each day to hundreds of Thrivent's members and clients with various objectives such as setting appointments for product reviews and invitations to educational workshops. I learned about developing personal brand image and professional written and verbal communication. I also sharpened my record keeping with MS Excel, Word and Access. My coworkers came from – more... a wide range of backgrounds, but had one thing in common, being that they were friendly, outgoing and people oriented. The hardest part of the job was learning to let negative feedback from customers roll off my back. Often customers would be upset with representatives at their local field office and would take their frustration out on the callers who contacted them on the behalf of their local representative. The most enjoyable part of the job was giving the customer a positive experience; taking an outbound call and making it into something the customer was glad to have received. – less

Student Leader
Money Revolution Intern (Current Employee), Irvine, CAJanuary 6, 2015
I was a student leader as part of a program put on by Thrivent Financial called Money Revolution. I would host events on my college campus to educate students about financial independence and management. Every Summer Thrivent would fly me out to their headquarters in Minnesota to meet with my bosses who were located at corporate, learn from some of the executives and participate in a leadership retreat at their corporate resort.

Coworkers are fun and enjoyable to work with
Office Professional (Former Employee), Eau Claire, WIDecember 15, 2014
Pros: flexible schedules
Cons: days can feel long
Thrivent Financial is a good organization to work for because they have knowledgeable staff about insurance and money management plans. Sometimes the days can be long because of the tasks that need to be completed for all of the clients. It would be helpful to have background knowledge of the industry.

Great company with high values
Community Engagement Leader (Former Employee), Downers Grove, ILNovember 30, 2014
Thrivent Financial is an excellent company. They treat their employees well and taking care of their 2.5 million members is a top priority. The company is a not for profit and gives millions of dollars back to local communities and the world, being one of the biggest contributors to Habitat for Humanity.
