Productive and employee friendly workplace
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee), Omaha, NEMarch 17, 2015
Pros: onsight chef in the lunchroom
Cons: driving distance to work
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.

Woodmen of the World is an excellent company founded on the principles of protecting members from financial loss and giving back to the community.
Field Representative (Current Employee), Hildebran, NCJanuary 20, 2015
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.

Pros: good company
Cons: commission only salary
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.

Having a great time at summer camp.
Camp Counselor (Former Employee), Fort Barnwell, NCOctober 29, 2014
Pros: free food
Cons: having to stay during the week.
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.

we took a lot of trips for training
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Dothan, ALMay 14, 2013
Pros: the incentives were always second to none and the yearly camp they send the kids to were awesome.
Cons: competitive spirits were sometimes not so encouraging. kind of cut-throat.
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.

Great!
Sales Rep (Current Employee), VirginiaApril 18, 2013
Pros: service provided is actually helping people.
Cons: i.t dept. a lttle old school
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.

Not so good
Financial Representative (Former Employee), KYApril 3, 2013
Managers are misleading, products are outdated and unnecessary. Almost no room to advance. Pretty much just a racket on old people who don't even want to talk to you.
