Great to work from home at your own hours.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
There is never pressure to work, you work when you want. If you want more money, you work more hours, simple. The process is already figured out for you, so you just follow the system and make your living. I start work usually in the late morning and put in 3-4 hours per day. There is no pressure which I love and an endless flow of incoming calls.I love the freedome working here.

Pros

No pressure, easy system.

Cons

Commission could be higher

Great for AEP

So Assurance is a fairly new company to the best of my knowledge but they wasted no time getting into the predatory consumer game. All ads are CMS approved of course but super misleading to the beneficiaries leading in a lot of missed sales opportunities. During AEP it’s more practical to pivot those points but outside of AEP you’re really just getting cursed out all. I wish the company would do better with the guides but your phone will definitely be ringing off the hook all day

Pros

Call volume

Cons

No leadership. You’re hired and wait for the email stating you’re fired

Need improvement

assurance is very unorganized. Some of the employees can be rude at times. More can be done to help the company improve. The switching back and forth form outbound to inbound, they need better organization on.

Pros

you can make good money if you do the work

Cons

They are unorganized.

You get what you work for

It’s ridiculous the amount of negative reviews at this place. You make your own schedule so if you are working 2-3 hours every other day, don’t expect to make the big bucks. Have basic customer service skills, be licensed in several states, get appointed with the carriers, and put in the hours. You’ll see how easy it is. All these people complaining, wondering if they are just not putting in enough work, or thought this was a micromanaging company. You are the professional, so you should know what the customer needs by listening. If you’re not self driven and knowledgeable, don’t apply!

Pros

Own schedule, compensated day of, freedom

Cons

None

Stay Away

Started here July 2020 everything was going good until it slowed down then my pay went downhill from there. Here it is 11/2020 and I emailed them about some concerns I had about not getting paid guess what they do, send me an email about HIPAA Compliance sounds RETALIATORY to me that they didn't even answer my email but yet if I don't follow there "rules" when transferring a call their going to ban me. Good thing I have another job I'm in training for right now or else I'd be screwed. Stay away from this company this is not a good company to work for unless you want ZERO pay for a days work.

Pros

Work from home

Cons

Leadership needs to be fired

90% of calls are a fluke

It's nice to be paid every night, but 90% of calls are of people tired of getting telemarketing calls and aren't interested. Had some people curse me out too. When you do get lucky, your balance will raise anywhere between $4-$10. I feel like you can't really predict how much you'll get, you kinda just have to wait till it shows up on your screen.

Underpaid, unprofessional

Highly unprofessional company. They waste your time with "leads" they must have found in some trash can. And they underpay or not pay at all because of system issues. Regarding "leadership" - they do not respond to email at all. It's all an automated system with email series and "evergreen" webinar and it's scary to me that this is how insurances convey business.

Pros

You can quit any time

Cons

No leadership, unprofessional, horrible pay

Interesting...learned where NOT to work

Assurance sells insurance as a subsidiary of a larger insurance company. They have many branches, each run by a different team. I was with Assurance IQ. They hire in mass, an army of agents. They are not particular because you are an independent contractor with no benefits. It was all remote, and since they are onboarding so many at once it is very impersonal. The instructions were insufficient, and I lost two weeks. Long process of on boarding with the company. The commission is low, the more you sell the more commission they give you. I researched how much they were getting from the insurance carriers we are selling. Assurance gets paid on average $650 for signing on a medicare supplemental, then they get paid another $350 year two and three. How much of that do you get? A one time pay out of $200 if you sell only a little. If you sell 45 policies or more each week, you get up to $450, one time. However, to sell 45 policies a week you must be on the phone each day for 5-10 hours five days a week, depending on how lucky and good you are. They set up the commission structure to work you to death. If I wanted that kind of schedule I would return to my former job. I signed up for life insurance because I wanted freedom, flexibility, and LESS HOURS OF WORK. On top of it, I read some of the emails of how they talk about the new people. Not good. Furthermore, they promise bonuses, but the opportunity to get the bonus quickly disappears. I was just finishing on boarding when I learned all of these things and decided to walk away. I hear they do pay out, and if you have - 

Pros

All automated, work from home

Cons

Confusing, poor instructions, impersonal, and sometimes disrespectful.

Keep looking

To be clear, I was like a lot of you, I needed to earn income from home. The reality here is you will unlikely make minimum wage, there is ABSOLUTELY no support from Assurance. The job is very frustrating because you are calling people to get them to talk with a licensed agent, many of whom have no idea why your calling, or any interest in your call. You are told by Assurance that you are paid based on the quality of the leads you transfer, and the length of time the agent spends on the phone with the "prospect".I believe that the agents are paying for the leads and the length of time they are spending on the call once transferred. I say this because I cannot imagine any salesperson worth a dime would end their call with a prospect within the first minute or two. Which is interesting, because if you want to get paid by "Assurance" for quality leads the prospect needs to send at least 5 minutes on the phone with the agent.Bottom line 1) Terrible leads, 2) NO SUPPORT by Assurance 3) great job if you want to waste your time earning little to nothing.

Pros

Promises

Cons

Assurance is terrible place to work with

Work-life balanceAssurance is the worst company you could ever work for as they keep your money and pay you through zelle. They keep most of your commissions you should be making. As they only pay you 200% commission per policy written. As if you write a 60 dollar policy you only get say 135 dollars for that instead of getting paid 600 plus ridusiuls as they keep the rest of the money plus the ridusiuls. So you have to sell 16 policy per day. At least and when they are transferring you anyone whether they already are covered or not. Or even want to speak with an agent.Pay & benefitsIt's a 1099 position you get no bennifits at allJob security and advancementIt's terrible if you're not selling 16 policies per day your goneManagementTerrible managementCultureIt's terrible working for assuranceOverallI worked there for about 6 months and that was enough for me. I had to leave the company and go make some really money. I hard to sell to people who don't want to hear what you have to day. And you have to read a script from the platform they provide. To you and if you deviate from that script they talk to you about it. And the script is terrible.

Agents Beware--You Won't Get Paid

The concept of Assurance is good, but the execution is a train-wreck. Assurance never even acknowledged or paid me for 3 out of 4 enrollments I made. It has been a continual fight to get my commissions paid, but no success yet. Assurance owes me over $600 and all I get is more runaround. Plus Assurance offers numerous bonus incentives, and then never pays them. I bought an out-of-state license that was supposed to be re-imbursed next business day, but all I get is a runaround. Total lies to suck you in! They get around this by asking for more documentation, then more documentation, etc., etc. Agents beware, you might get paid for your work, or you might not. Sign up at your own risk.

Pros

Flexibility of work hours

Cons

Never get paid for your work

Not what it use to be.

No support from management. Low income and the leads are a joke but it counts against you when you take a bad lead as if you have control over that. They say be honest but that’s to cover their butts. The dishonest agents hey reward while the compliant agents get demoted and kicked off the platform. They cut commissions down by so much recently in the middle of this pandemic. These people only care about money. They don’t care about clients or agents. & there is no customer service support so you’ll be expected to not only close but retain old business. It’s pathetic.

Pros

Work from home

Doesn't make any sense

Literally every sing call I received(the calls come to you), there was already another Guide on the line with the customer(in which every customer hangs up on you). When doing your required assignments before starting the job, it says to say "Thanks, I'll take it from here" if you hear another Guide on the line(which is every single call). So does that mean we are stealing their work that they received 1st? And how is it that the call goes to multiple people? It will seem extremely unprofessional to a customer to have multiple employees receiving their call.

Pros

Haven't found any

Cons

Everything so far

Unprofessional

For a company that was bought out by a Fortune 500 company, this is one of the most unprofessional company out there. Terrible management. JC head of the health insurance department never sold a product in his life and he try to coach someone. Can take tips from someone like that. The team leaders and all management have terrible response time. Always tell me they will call me back but takes them a few days. So the platform is great just terrible and so unprofessional management and GM. Don’t know how Paulus and Rowell found these guys.

Pros

Quick cash

Easy work from home position

I just started and I’m excited. I don’t see too many reviews about this company. I don’t know if that’s good or bad. I think cold calling is horrible and you need thick skin with some calls.

This is a gig. Not a job.

All the people leaving horrible reviews probably have the same thing in common: They are approaching this thing as a regular 9-5 job. Just like other "gig" opportunities (Uber, DoorDash, Postmates, etc) you have X amount of hours per day to make money- what you do with that time is entirely up to you. If you are only passively engaged you will see minimal return. If you want to make at least $100 per day expect to work 6-8 hours. The job is simple- get insurance shoppers in touch with insurance agents. Most of your time will be spent dispositioning answering machines and immediate hangup calls. It's mundane but nothing to complain about. Just trudge through and deal with it. Transfers seem to come in waves. It is very common to end up having 3-5 in a row so keep your energy high and flowing from each call to the next. There are enough fixed and random bonus opportunities to keep you motivated. There will be several times when you are unable to successfully transfer a warm lead due to tech issues or unavailable agents. This, too, is nothing worth complaining about. Stuff happens. On the topic of pay- it sounds complicated up front but is really super simple:- For each call that lasts >40 seconds you get 10 cents- If a call lasts >90 seconds that 10 becomes 25 cents (they do not stack)- You receive 30 cents for each call successfully transferred to an agent- Your goal is for your transferred calls to be Quality Transfers: - If they speak with an agent for >5 minutes = $3 - If they speak with an agent for >10 minutes= $6 - If they speak with an agent for >20 - 

Pros

Work for yourself, work from home, easy

Cons

It's a 1099 so no benefits, you need to save for taxes.

Perfect for someone who can set aside time each day for work

Great position if you want it for either just a few hours a week or 50 a week. It's up to you and how much you are willing to work. Having excellent verbal skill and sales experience will make it much easier.
