1.) Salary: Nineteen weeks salary; after that you are straight commission. You better be a real 'salesman'. Salary is figured at your last two years income average at previous employer.
2.) Benefits are your standard BIG company benefits; health, dental, life, pension, 401k. You are fine the first 19 weeks, but if you don't hit the minimum GDC requirement in your first 19 weeks ($20k GDC closed) you are SOL. Meaning MetLife will not pay their employer side of your benefits. In other words; most companies will pay the employer side of benefits while we employees pick up the rest. If you don't hit the 20k GDC, you will be paying 100% of both employer and employee benefits charges. Some 15 year employees did not hit their GDC goal and ended up paying $800.00 a month for their benefits.
3.) Travel requirements; leads are given and you will drive, fly or travel to meet people at their homes on a daily basis. Until you are tired of it.
4.) There are no special treats for employees. You are registered with the SEC, no little perks on the side for anything you do. Management decides where the money goes, and believe me, it is not in your pocket or to your benefit, unless you are closing above and beyond the minimum reqd.
