Licensing exam
Licensed Insurance Agent (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, INJuly 2, 2018
They literally cram over 40 hours of insurance information down your throat in one week and expect for you to know and pass an exam the following Monday. It’s an extreme amount of information that they want you to study everyday including the weekend even though they send you home with 30 - 40 questions of homework every night. You work 9-5 and after sitting in a classroom with a cramping hand try to write down information that flashes trough a PowerPoint slide super fast, you’re like super drained out. You do your homework then you go to sleep. Everyday was super draining. The amount of information we have to obtain in a week is similar to what you would do in a college course, except it is done all IN ONE WEEK! The test is extremely hard. The only people who pass are the people with prior knowledge of insurance. If not you are screwed!! And if you aren’t one of their top employees you get laid off after enrollment season never seeing your 14 dollars an hour pay that you’re supposed to get after a year being there! No one is there for that long.
Pros
Clean and quiet facility

Insurance Sales Agent (Former Employee) –  Mesa, AZ 85210February 22, 2018
They bring anyone off the street to try and train for medicare advantage plan enrollment. they try to get them licensed, most can't pass the exam. the managers are incompetent, do not live in state and are cycled in from Indiana. if you need a job, this is fine for 3 months, but do not trust a thing you are told.
Pros
8 hour days, possibility of getting valuable health license.

Insurgence producer (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, INFebruary 11, 2018
It could be rough sometimes dealing with some phone calls, however most people you dealt with as long as you knew what you were doing were kinda and nice. I took phone calls and tried to give people the insurance plan that was the best fit for their life.
Pros
The pay was good and you were usually offered overtime
Cons
Some of the calls could be hard to deal with and having to work mandatory overtime

Seasonal Job. Chance to continue on working there if you are a licensed agent, working hours can be brutal during peak season, exam can be rough to pass.

Seasonal Cycle
Licensed Agent (Current Employee) –  Bloomington, INNovember 15, 2017
The season usually begins to pick up in September with hiring, training, and refreshers. Medicare Enrollment starts in October and ends in December after which the first round of furloughs begins. As business declines, furloughs continue.

Management is great about communicating expectations and guidelines and are very open to have conversations about things you're doing well, where you can improve, and advancement opportunities you may be interested in.
Pros
Flexible Scheduling, Management Communication
Cons
Seasonal busy period, Furloughs Common

No organization. Poor Managment. ZERO Training
Sales Agent- Medicare Advantage (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, INNovember 3, 2017
I think this company is a scam. I was hired early October for the Medical Advantage open enrollement season. My position was suppose to have ended Dec 7th. They released all new hires on November 1st. There was no training, and they said they did not have enough leads for the new hires. Also hiring new hires so late in the season did not allow enough time to train new agents.
The company seems disorganized, and it starts at the top with poor upper and middle management. I would not recommend this company to anyone.

Licensed Agent in Training (Former Employee) –  Mesa AzOctober 10, 2017
Company is very disorganized. Management has no plan or system in place to handle hiring new employees. Training materials were very poor and trainers are not licensed in this state. Bodies in chairs is what they're seeking. If you have a brain, look elsewhere.
Pros
Paid training
Cons

Unless your friends with someone worth something there, don't bother looking here for advancement opportunities
Licensed Insurance Agent (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, INOctober 9, 2017
A typical day of work here is chaos. Nobody that's in a position to know whats going on, does. I've learned a lot about patience while working here. Not one person in upper management genuinely values their employees. Workplace culture = POLITICS! Unless you know someone in a position to do something, don't bother thinking you can be successful here. Hardest part of the job was maintaining my composure. Clocking out was the most enjoyable!!
Pros
Filtered water fountains

Reasonable Pay
Agent/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Bloomington, INAugust 9, 2017
Bloom will pay for you to become a licensed health/life agent. The position is not year round as they experience a lot of furloughs due to the nature of the contracts they enter into with the clients. You are only allowed a total of 40 minutes away from your desk. This includes two 15 minute breaks which leaves you 10 minutes, in an eight hour period, to use the bathroom or to get a drink/snack from the basement
There is an outrageous amount of favoritism by management to those who they deem worthy. The job in itself is not hard but dealing with the constant low morale, the holier than thou attitude of the program managers, and the lack of empathy will drain your soul.
Pros
Acceptable pay rate
Cons
Short breaks, poor communication between staff and management, self pay health coverage, being treated as if you are a three year old, the rules change for each person

QUALITY ASSURANCE REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) –  Bloomington, INAugust 1, 2017
Audit agent phone calls for compliancy. Learned that each a lot about Medicare. Management is okay. Favoritism is rampant. Having to write an agent up for a compliance violation. Helping the agents become better at their jobs.
Pros
PTO time, numerous paid holidays, dress casual attire four days per week with casual Friday.
Cons
Lack of communication, lack of necessary resources, cliquey
