Very little money to be made there, average of $300 to $500 weekly, on top of that you have to use your own car to visit customers all day and the company do not pay for your gas or milage. The management is a joke.
Agent (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 30, 2015
A typical day with united consisted of getting out and riding an insurance collection debit all day. I would go by my route list from house to house collecting premiums. I really enjoyed my policy holders. I also had to prospect for new clients, and do property claims.
District Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – August 20, 2015
I need a change, plus there is a rumor they are closing my office. The office has hired retired people to fill full time position and it is my job to manage sales and collections of these Sales Reps. They dont work 8 hr days and I am the one who has to pick up the slack when they dont perform. I try to recruit but the training pay is not good enough to attract Bread winners so I am stuck with the same Retired guys. I put tons of pressure on my self and it is effecting my health. The most enjoyable part of the job and the reason I do it still is the customers. They Love me and I love them.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Elk Grove, CA – June 5, 2015
I would go through emails first thing in the morning and go over production , also answer a multi phone line during the process. Assist agents with there payments which includes adding checks add money orders. Awe would scan checks into the bank. Assist customers as they walked in and assist the district manager with agents, meetings, and our home office.etc..
I did an entire two months worth of training to get this job along with having to spend hundreds of dollars to get my licenses to be able to work in the insurance field. I was told I would be reimbursed for my training and license fees which I never was. I was told that the potential to make commission was very high, which it wasn't. I was charged after I quit this job for collection payments that I had collected but the staff had misfiled so I had to take the hit to my paycheck to pay back. One last thing it took them 6 months to get my last check to me which was also slightly lighted than usual because of their inability to keep track of paper work. My average route took me 5-7 hours a day to do and it stretched about 2 hours of driving(highway) to get to the furthest point. My pay was only 500 dollars a week.
