Singer Ct Chantilly VA in Chantilly, VA

The training is good for a new agent but don't expect to earn enough to pay the bills or eat. This is a 100% Commision job in which you pay for everything bussiness cards, pens, etc.. also Training Cources and exams for Licences for the right to sell Bankers life products, Sales Leads, E&O insurance. You pay for pretty much everything except the phones and a desk which is coming from your sales etc.Bankers Life in Chantilly has a very active revolving door of Agents who leave due to the lack of income. And Leave the residule business income sold to the branch manager.You are expected to share 50% of your commisions with more senior agents who help you sell on client visits...So your goal is to last long enough so you can leach of the new agents who are trying to start of in the insurance industry...

Scamming seniors into over priced medicare supplements, life insurance, long term care.... Shady agents, bad culture, limited products, no structure, scripts... Do not waste your time with these unprofessional people.

Bankers is a place to go when you have nothing left. There’s no base pay, commission only, the leads are horrible. It is basically cold calling all day. Depending on the sales you have that week you can make $0 per week -$Unlimited. But the average is $500-$1000 a week for veteran agents. Rookie agents on the other hand can go weeks with 1 or no sale and no real help is offered. So upside is that some commissions you can get are very high in the multiple thousand dollar range I’ve seen as high as $30,000 on one sale. So if you can make sales to individuals 65 and over cold calling. Bankers is the place to go. But if you’re a regular individual curious as to what is in store for you. It is years of struggling to get started. Little to no training after entry level training just to get hired. Bankers just hires people to make their quota every month. The more people they have come in, the more money the office gets to spend on whatever they want. And 9/10 times it doesn’t benefit you.

I have been working with Bankers Life since November and continue to be impressed with how this company operates. There is a very team oriented culture and I never feel bad asking questions about things I don't know. The company covers pretty much all out of pocket costs for their agents - except the licensing process with the state (even though there is a 1/2 reimbursement the company offers towards licensing expenses too.) I would say the hardest part of the job is getting licensed with the state. Once you are licensed and come aboard, their mentorship and training program takes care of the rest. The most enjoyable part of the job would be helping families in their retirement planning - knowing you are making a difference.
