Woodmen of the World is an excellent company founded on the principles of protecting members from financial loss and giving back to the community.
Pros: the commissions and contests, as well as trips were top notch.
Cons: while the commissions were good, if the referrals were not there, the commissions from the sale of new certificates were not and prevented a steady income.
Prior to starting work with Woodmen of the World I had been a member for a number of years. I was aware of the founding principles. However, I did not know how this company has continued to grow, even during the early depression years, not just the recent recession. During a typical day I may be working with contact small business owners on coverage for their employees, individuals or families, sometimes filing a death claim. This was one of the hardest parts of the job with another being the privacy laws that prevented a lot of referral contact. The other representatives, no matter their position with the company, were willing to assist with questions. As for the most enjoyable part of the job (which I do not think of as merely a job) was the people contact and assisting them with decisions they make.
