Field Representative (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – August 5, 2015
Some of the managers were hard to get along with but the clients were some of the nicest people you could ever meet. They were devoted to the agency and what it stood for. The hardest part of my job was convincing new clients that they needed insurance, especially the younger generation.
Financially rewarding, family and community focus, and great career opportunity
Market Representative (Current Employee) – Stockbridge, GA – August 3, 2015
Financially rewarding, family and community focus, and great career opportunity, unlimited income, flexible schedules, and career advancement opportunities. WoodmenLife is a great fraternal organization to be apart of today.
Insurance Agent (Current Employee) – Bainbridge, GA – June 23, 2015
Overall, I work with a great people. There was good days and rough days but through it all I hung in there. Our supervisor didn't know much about computer but he knew his job. I wasn't comfortable talking with him because he didn't should me that he was a leader.
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – March 17, 2015
A typical day at work entailed manually creating, mailing and monitoring billing statements for auto rental dealers. I learned how the auto rental insurance programs are managed. Management and coworkers were business-like but friendly. The hardest part of the job was calling people to collect their unpaid premiums and at times having to cancel the policy. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning the auto rental program that I had never worked with in the past.
Camp Counselor (Former Employee) – Fort Barnwell, NC – October 29, 2014
We stayed at the camp every week and had weekends off, so typical day at work could have depended on how the kids you watched acted the day before. I learned how to manage young children. My co-worker were great mostly peers so they were easy to get along with. Hardest part about the job is having to cope with someone's children, what I mean by that is how some children act. Just having a great time each and everyday with my co-workers.

Help make life better for families with a variety of insurance and annuity products, and for my community with Woodmen of the World's fraternal program. Along the way, make a great living for other people. IT is really great to meet new people and share their story.
Life Insurance and Annuity Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – December 15, 2014
Asked to join this company after resolving a conflict with my fathers Life Insurance. Very likeable area manager. Good group of people to work with. very difficult to work on a commission only salary and pay for all your expenses.
Sales Rep (Current Employee) – Virginia – April 18, 2013
High pay, bonus, benefits, payed trips, vacations. I am truly grateful I decided to work for W.O.W the flexible schedule and be-my-own-boss atmosphere is something I never thought I could have. I left a great career in the field I went to college for and put a lot of my life into just because I became "burnt out" and disappointed that nothing I did would result in a change for me and my family. It may not be for everyone (commission sales) but we are not "strait commission" for the first two years and thankfully I have been able to use that to my advantage (commission sales = no income limits either). Have to be self motivated.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Dothan, AL – May 14, 2013
A typical workday for Woodmen depended strictly on how well the field rep was prepared for the next day. You could not wait to plan but was pertinent to your career to be proactive. The co-workers was a source of strength and encouragement when you not on the top of your game. The hardest and most discouraging part of this job was when you drive to an appointment sometimes for hours and no -show. The most enjoyable part was the trips and the money.
the incentives were always second to none and the yearly camp they send the kids to were awesome.
competitive spirits were sometimes not so encouraging. kind of cut-throat.
Field Representative (Current Employee) – Sherwood, AR – August 14, 2012
I currently work with Woodmen of the World, and I love it. I get to come home from appointments knowing I was able to help someone protect their family and their future. I have a solid team of managers and reps with me, who truly want to see me thrive.
solid bonus structure, flexible hours, ability to work from home
Field Representative (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – June 28, 2012
Being self-employed is enjoyable. You set your own hours. Work when you want to for the most part. Some early mornings depending on your appointments with your clients. Some late nights. A very flexible job.
I learned how to deal with rejection in sales. Cold-calling was very difficult for me in the beginning. Prospecting gets old and stressful.
The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that you had helped a person make a decision to purchase a product that would take care of his spouse and children at his death.
This was a fraternal organization and I was expected to do a lot of communitiy activities not only during the work week but on the weekends as well. Sometimes this could interfere with my plans with my family. That was a negative working for this company
Independent Insurance Agent (Former Employee) – Ville Platte, LA – September 15, 2012
This job demanded discipline, dedication and extreme self organization. I was an independent contractor and made my own schedules. A strict routine was a must in order to succeed. My days started at 7:30 and ended when I was finished taking care of clients. I was on call 24/7. The hardest part of the job was the typical "dry spells" and when there was a death. Getting called in the early morning hours because a clients loved one passed away was the saddest part of this job. It was mostly a commission based job and no work meant no pay. Strict routines were a must. I enjoyed my co-workers because they were experienced and shared loads of knowledge. Management was sketchy but we only saw them once a month for district meetings.
meeting new people, forming new relationships, the demanding schedule and organization
IT Consultant/ Systems Analyst/Developer (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – April 27, 2012
I've been there for one year only. The management is amazing! The co-workers were friendly and knowledgeable, and always willing to share their technical expertize. I still regret that I left the job...
