The insurance workplace
Insurance Consultant (Former Employee) –  DubaiFebruary 27, 2018
Day starts with the management meeting, fixing meetings for the day. Learned to do the lifeline on the clients taking them from now to uncertainty and convincing them on why to take life insurance. Hardest part of the job was working only for commissions. Enjoyed meeting people and visiting new places.

Rewarding training new agents to achieve their goals
Training Manager (Former Employee) –  Cardiff and Surrounding Areas as far as BRISTOLJuly 19, 2017
The job was very hard cold calling on businesses on a daily basis usually getting rejected even before you could explain the policy benefits but for every No answer you got 1 step closer to a Yes and that was reward in itself with the benefit of knowing you helped another in giving advice and showing they needed the policy u were offering and the reward was a minimum of £65 earned for the sale depending on the price and cover they had taken. What was the most rewarding was seeing the new Agents body language change when they had made their first sale the enthusiasm and joy in that they had made a sale on their own that was so rewarding for me not because i had done my job well and trained them in field to sell but seeing the agents face so happy as most times they may have had 200 No answers before they got their Yes answer.
Pros
Guaranteed Salary + Company Car + Bonus each week on agents earnings
Cons
12 hours a day 4 days a week late evenings + weekend work generating new leads for agents

experiencia
revisadora y empacadora (Former Employee) –  Medellín, ANTFebruary 16, 2015
Para empezar me encanta poder socializar con muchas personas y esto puede darse muy fácilmente allí ya que el personal de trabajo es grande,por otro lado poder adquirir el conocimiento de como de una u otra forma por medio de unas empresas otras pueden tener un buen o mal desempeño.
Me gusto muchisimo haber tenido la oportunidad de laborar con alico ya que esta cuenta con un personal superior muy especializado y profesional en cada uno de sus rangos, es una empresa que cuenta con una organización excelente en todos los aspectos.
mi día típico el segundo,jaja hay un marcador de hora de entrada y salida a la empresa a la persona encargada de enseñarme las instalaciones se le paso por alto contarme el detalle y al siguiente día como no registre mi entrada en el reloj creyeron que no habia ingresado.
aprendí que por mas insignificante que sea la labor que realices en tu empleo o donde te encuentres debes real izarla con mucho cariño e importancia que las demás pues puede suceder que por esta cosa mínima se frustre un buen trabajo.
Pros
todas las prestaciones
